I’m not playing with words at all. You made the claim that the CCP wasn’t the first to create artificial islands and by doing so ignoring what’s going on. Actually, the CCP is the first to begin a land grab, which would be defined as exactly what the CCP has been doing since 2014. Not only has the CCP constructed countless islands for military bases, but it’s also claims almost the entirety of the South China Sea as its own.
 
100 acres over 45 years is a massive head start, is it?

Next, can you provide evidence the “massive” acreage (100 over 45 years) those countries established were for military purposes?

Of course I shifted to new ground for the simple reason that 100 acres over 45 years isn’t the land grab that you were insinuating with the “not the first” claim.

Moreover, you ignore what China is doing, which is the very definition of a land grab.

Apple could be in trouble if this happens, and Tim Cook deserves it too for taking away ads from Twitter.

If elon musk released a phone via, X, xai, or tesla with service from Starlink, how many of you would buy it immediately after seeing that Apple’s putting OpenAI on your phone? As a bonus the phone could have grok and not coincidentally bug out right before the new model comes out like iPhones do. I think this would remake the phone industry and within 2 years would be the #1 phone especially if you can’t be cancelled off it and it truly protects your privacy. Elon should do it!

I would.

Musk is saying he won’t allow Apple phones at his businesses because of security reasons.

I replied to your irrelevant remark that because a couple of nations created 100 acres of islands over a 45 year span, therefore they made the CCP do it – create 3000 acres of militarized islands and claim nearly all of the South China Sea. This CCP caper occurring since 2014. Moreover, those nations weren’t claiming all of the South China Sea.

I’m not playing your silly game. The point of contention isn’t 100 acres over a period of 45 years, it’s what’s been going on since 2014, which for the CCP, is the very definition of a massive land or sea grab. The-other-side -made-me-do-it is starting to wear thin these days.

Hunter Biden was dramatically found guilty of three criminal charges today in his blockbuster gun and drugs trial.

A jury in Wilmington, Delaware unanimously convicted Joe Biden’s son of two counts of lying on a federal government form to buy a gun, and one count of possessing the firearm while abusing drugs.

Jurors deliberated for less than three hours after a trial that had lasted over a week. 

The swift and historic conviction marks the first time a sitting U.S. President’s child has been found guilty of a federal crime. 

Hunter nodded slowly and appeared resigned as the guilty verdicts were read out.

The conviction will put to the test a public promise by Joe Biden that he will not pardon his son.

Just read something about local councils taking over tourist attractions from private operators, resulting in years of red tape and doing nothing, now this:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2024-06-11/telstra-act-government-to-work-together-telstra-tower-upgrade/103962700

As a long term resident of the region, I never liked it aesthetically. But, it’s there, and for a while there was even a revolving restaurant.

The money shot is the view. In autumn, the patchwork of colours rivals what you see on the train to Canada, At other times, it is still spectacular.

There is no doubt that it could be made into a viable business, until you hit the ACT gubbmint’s web of regulation. Only a disabled blind transexual could operate the lift, with a carer and support person.

All of them would need to have periods of paid leave for training, respite and surgery.

What should be a no-brainer for tourism is boarded up. Like the attractions taken over by local government mentioned above (also boarded up) the dead hand of regulation kills everything.

Another one bites the dust:

Pioneering Sydney “indie” brewery Malt Shovel (est. 1988 but long since purchased by Lion) will close its doors in August.

Lion Australia managing director James Brindley described the current climate as

a tough time for all players in the Australian beer industry.

There have also been ongoing cost of living pressures reducing discretionary spending, and continuing increases in costs like energy, labour and ingredients, as well as government excise, which is now the third-highest in the world.

Some of the breweries signature ales may continue to be produced by Lion in other facilities.

Hunter’s guilty verdict is being retailed by the special council and all the media as “nobody is above the law”. This serves two purposes. One, to try and tarnish Trump, and secondly to paper over the completely opposite attempt to give Hunter an astonishing plea deal that smacked of very special treatment indeed. Fortunately the judge back then wouldn’t go along with it, so it has now been memory-holed and the newly packaged chook feed is that nobody is above the law.

BBC NewsHour this morning in the second half ran a long diatribe by some American academic against Big Fossil.
Big Fossil is so rich it can control the flow of disinformation and misinformation! Note: how this differs from Big Media is unclear.
Big Fossil is nasty and wants to preserve its money flows at any cost, so is spreading lies to hurt noble little Renewables.
Someone should tell the Beeb “never go Full Fossil Retard”.
They might try to say it’s not us, it’s that academic that said it.
But they obviously approve the message.
What it reveals is their fear that the plan is failing, that the wheels are falling off EVs big time, and that everyone is realising that net zero has net zero sense.

Censorship silences necessary debate

Senator Claire Chandler, The Spectator Australia June 11, 2024

Last week I asked the eSafety Commissioner a simple question, ‘Are Australians allowed to call a violent male rapist who identifies their way into a women’s prison a man or a male?’ In case you’re wondering: no, this isn’t hypothetical. I’ve spoken in the Senate previously about the abhorrent case of the depraved man who spent years in a European men’s jail for sexually assaulting his young daughter, before committing a serious sexual assault on a woman in Melbourne. He was referred to as a woman and a ‘she’ in Australian media and the court, and was ultimately allowed to identify their way into a women’s prison.

There’s a simple and important reason this question needs to be asked. And that is because the website of the eSafety Commissioner – who has the power to order anyone’s social media posts be taken down in Australia – claims that ‘misgendering’ or refusing to use preferred pronouns is an example of ‘gendered violence’ or ‘gendered hate’.

There’s a huge problem with authorities and people in positions of power making ideological statements like this. It’s a pretty basic concept that if you’re trying to explain why a male shouldn’t be in a female sport or space, you have to be actually free to say he is male.

And that’s precisely why a trans activist lodged a complaint to the press council against the Herald Sun when it was one of the only Australian media outlets to cover the complaints by female prisoners against this male sex offender being housed in prison with them. The ideology that any male must be free to identify as a woman can’t withstand open discussion of the occasions when this policy plainly puts women in danger. As the Herald Sun reported, this activist has repeatedly tried to launch legal action against Australian media outlet for their reporting.

Authorities which label ‘misgendering’ as hate speech and have the power to accept complaints and take action against it are actively contributing to the undermining of women’s single-sex spaces, sports and facilities, when they deprive us of the ability to describe a man as a man.

While it’s pleasing that in this case the Press Council rejected the complaint from an activist, the reality is that it has upheld many other spurious complaints against journalists and media outlets trying to cover the various debates around self-ID. And on social media, the equivalent of the Press Council – but with vastly more power – is the eSafety Commissioner.

If you’ve paid any attention at all to this issue you know that forcing people to call males ‘women’ was the key that allowed men into female spaces. Many of the people who would rightly object immediately to a man walking into a women’s change room or a male rapist being put in a women’s prison suddenly go missing if that male claims to be a woman. And plenty of the rest who can still see how unfair and unsafe it is will nevertheless stay silent because they’ve heard loud and clear from authorities that ‘misgendering’ is hate speech.

Again, this isn’t a particularly difficult concept to grasp. Very few people actually agree that a violent male sex offender should be in a women’s prison. But if there’s a threat of punishment – or even the threat of being labelled a bigot – for pointing out there’s a man in a women’s prison, very few are comfortable to publicly object. So nothing gets said, nothing gets written or published, and it can keep happening.

The eSafety Commissioner is perfectly capable of understanding this. That’s why it was so shocking when her response to my question about the male rapist in a women’s prison was to label it ‘a long bow’ and say she refuses to be drawn on the issue.

This is the same Commissioner whose website labels ‘misgendering’ as hate, and the same Commissioner who has ordered news articles that accurately report on males in women’s sport must be taken down in Australia.

This is the trick gender activists have been playing for years now. Change the language, demand you comply, and then accuse you of hate and bigotry if you don’t. It’s one thing for activists to play this game, but when it comes from people with the power to limit free speech and discussion, it has catastrophic consequences for our society.

Animal rights activists vandalised the new portrait of King Charles at the Philip Mould gallery in London this afternoon.

Two protestors stuck Wallace and Gromit stickers taking aim at the RSPCA on top of Jonathan Yeo’s red-hued oil painting. 

A poster of Wallace’s face was pasted over the top of the King’s face, while a speech bubble reading “No Cheese, Gromit. Look At All This Cruelty On RSPCA Farms!’ was placed further down.

Yes, you have it right in one: they are actually protesting cheese.

Those of us who have constantly focused on the lack of a clear dividing line between Hamas terrorists and the “innocent civilians” that the Gazans wail about were proven correct again, as these four hostages were found to have been held in “civilian” apartments, registered to Gazan civilians, but under 24-hour guard by Hamas militants, clearly making a mockery of the innocence of such “civilians.”

New Zealand Reverses Left-Wing Plan to Tax Cow Burps, Farts (11 Jun)

New Zealand is scrapping a scheme to price gas emissions from livestock — squelching a so-called burp and fart tax initiated under the previous left-wing government led by now departed authoritarian Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

New legislation will be introduced to parliament this month by the ruling conservative coalition to remove the agriculture sector from a new emissions pricing plan, thus responding to farmer pressure that the plan would make their business unprofitable.

Muslim leader Sheik Wesam Charkawi driving the bid to topple Labor in southwest Sydney

Alexi Demetriadi, The Australian, 11 June 2024

Community leader Wesam Charkawi is mobilising the Muslim vote across key southwest Sydney federal seats to topple Labor at the next election as prominent figures warned the ALP of electoral abandonment. Sheik Charkawi, a Western Sydney University PhD candidate, is the brains and organiser behind The Muslim Vote campaign, The Australian can reveal.

It is one among many websites to emerge recently targeting Muslim Australians to support pro-Palestine candidates or oust sitting members who are not, including some Labor ministers, and rates them on their voting record and stance on Israel.

The emergence of such campaigns, and popular and well-connected figures such as Sheik Charkawi driving them, will remain a headache for Labor HQ until and during the federal election, likely to be early next year.

Last month Sheik Charkawi – a Sunni Muslim – led calls for the dismissal of ASIO chief Mike Burgess, who had said Sunni Islamic extremism posed the “greatest religi­ously motivated threat in Australia”.

The Australian revealed in April how Labor feared key Sydney heartlands, such as Jason Clare’s Blaxland, Anne Stanley’s Werriwa and Tony Burke’s Watson, could be at risk, given community anger about the Gaza war.

Sheik Charkawi, a frequent presence at the University of Sydney’s pro-Palestine encampment, was unreachable but has told his large following “things were in motion” for the next election and the Muslim vote had been “taken for granted”.

Outside Parramatta MP Andrew Charlton’s electorate office – another seat the campaign has targeted – Sheik Charkawi said it was “time to change the status quo” and a campaign was “mobilising for the election”.

Last month the campaign warned Labor its stance on the war would cost it at the election, particularly among young voters, saying it was “alienating its base”.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 29 of the 151 federal electorates have 5 per cent or more people of Islamic faith – 27 of those 29 seats are held by Labor.

Of those 29, 16 are held by Labor on margins of 10 per cent or more, and at the previous election it suffered primary vote swings against it of up to 18.5 per cent.

Six of the 10 biggest swings were in seats with large Muslim communities. Mr Clare’s Blaxland and Mr Burke’s Watson are each held with about a 15 per cent margin. Muslim voters make up 35 per cent and 27 per cent respectively in the two seats.

Southwest Sydney Muslim leaders said the party would be naive to think it wouldn’t suffer at the polls.

“You’d have to be absolutely naive to think there wouldn’t be electoral backlash,” Lebanese Muslim Association general secretary Gamel Kheir said He stressed that the community was appreciative of Mr Burke and Mr Clare, and it would be aimed at the party at large. “There’s a sense that they (Labor) will be punished for the stance they’ve taken on Palestine.”

Mr Kheir said although the community wasn’t homogenous, it would no longer default to Labor. “The community is younger and clear on who is going to best represent them,” he said, adding that they felt their voice was “not being heard”.

Mr Kheir said it “hurt more because it’s Labor”, comparing Anthony Albanese’s vocal criticism of damage to the US consulate with what he said was a lack of criticism of Israel. “Labor has traditionally looked out for minorities and migrants, we held them to a higher standard,” he said.

Although Sheik Cherkawi’s campaign may not run candidates, several pro-Palestine independents will run as viable protest votes and likely would be endorsed by it.

The Greens’ pro-Palestine stance is also rising in popularity, although the party would struggle for widespread support.

Of the sheik’s campaign, Mr Kheir said it could be “revolutionary”. “Our community is nuanced, filled with second or third-generation migrants, a patchwork of Australia … there’ll be collective backlash (against Labor),” he said.

Community leader Dr Jamal Rifi said although most elections were fought over the economy, the next would have more emphasis on foreign policy, namely the conflict. “It will play a bigger part than before,” he said.

Dr Rifi noted that it was the same government who reversed a relocation of Australia’s embassy to Jerusalem. “When they made that decision the local reaction was one of happiness, their score was high,” he said. “That score is now low – but it remains the same government (who did that).”

Dr Rifi pointed to a “tightrope” the government had to walk, especially given Hamas’ terror designation, and pointed to an “incremental but gradual” shift in its approach to Palestinian statehood and its people, revealing that meetings between the community and government were bearing fruit.

Rescued Israeli hostages describe punishments, fear and isolation

  • By dov lieber and carrie keller-lynn
  • Dow Jones
  • 8:00AM June 12, 2024
  • 1 Comment

For six months, the three men lived in a single dark room, sleeping on small mattresses on the ground.
Their sole contact with the outside world came from the guards who brought them food and at times abused them. They could hear the Gazan family that lived downstairs, including children, but never met them. One day, when the family went out, they were allowed downstairs to use the kitchen.
Their captors doled out punishments if the captives didn’t follow their strict rules, including locking them in the bathroom and piling blankets on them during the hot summer. They repeatedly threatened to kill them.
The hostages played cards, studied Arabic, taught each other Hebrew or Russian and kept time in journals. The three became close friends, and it was that bond that helped them through the ordeal.
Their guards at times told them that no one cared about them or was coming for them.
But one day, they were allowed to watch Al Jazeera’s Arabic broadcast and saw a rally in Tel Aviv by the families of the hostages. One of them spotted his own face among those whose freedom was being demanded. It also happened to be his birthday, which he knew because the captives had a notebook and were able to keep track of the date.
“It made him feel he hadn’t been forgotten,” said Aviram Meir, the uncle of one of the hostages.
When Israeli special forces burst into a building in central Gaza on Saturday in a high-risk daylight operation, they got to the room where Almog Meir Jan, 22 years old, Andrei Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, had spent most of their time since they were taken captive from a music festival in Israel in the Hamas-led attacks on Oct. 7.
The account of their time as captives in Gaza is based on interviews with relatives of the hostages, and Israeli security and medical officials. Some of the details are being reported for the first time.
Much remains to be revealed about what the three men and Noa Argamani, 26, who was also taken captive at the music festival and rescued in the same operation from a building about 200 yards away, went through as captives. Relatives of the hostages said they were advised to not probe for details, and expect to learn more about their loved ones’ ordeals as time passes.
Israeli security officials have asked the hostages and their relatives to keep details of their captivity a secret.

Gender dysphoria diagnoses among children have spiked 133% since 2019, data indicates

Twice as many children and teenagers are being diagnosed with gender dysphoria today than before the pandemic, a report suggests.

Analysts at LexisNexis — which tracks 300million patients — found the number of insurance claims for gender identity care among under-18s spiked 133 percent from 2019 to 2023.

It is part of a wider sharp increase in mental health issues among children.

If anyone wants an example of the verminous hypocrisy running amok in this country (and the West in general), and the different standards always applied to left and right politicians, here’s yet another example…..

On the weekend, a rabid frothing Nazi, a putrid little man who happens to head a far-left political party in this country called the Greens, addressed a pro-Pallie rally in Melbourne where the Hezbollah flag was proudly flown, where in attendance was a Nazi of Palestinian heritage who’s on record as saying at rallies that there’ll be more ‘events’ like October 7 2023, that October 7 2023 was just the beginning. Of course, Vic Plod haven’t bothered to charge or arrest this Pallie Nazi for his exhortations of violence. But these facts and threats, all out in the public space, didn’t stop this Greens Nazi from sharing a stage with this Pallie Nazi. I’m curious, does Adam Bandt desire more rapes and murders? It begs the question, just who is the bigger creep here, Adam Nazi or the Pallie Nazi? I dunno, but one thing I do know is that creep attract creep, and actually the more dangerous creep, the more insidious creep, is the little Green Nazi, because he and his fellow Nazis sit in and soil our parliament.

Which brings me to our very own Nazi here, who for years has come here and when not smearing innocent men as ‘rock spiders’, when not advocating for and laughing at violence against those whose opinions he doesn’t like, such as gender critical women such as myself, women who don’t want cocks in frocks in our private spaces, has long loved throwing around, with gay abandon, the smear….”Nazi”. In case you’ve forgotten, he wants to punch Nazis! Gosh, I hope then he attended the Melbourne rally on the weekend because there were lots of Nazis in attendance that day….to ‘punch’.

Anyone recall how Senator Anning was crucified for his words in a senate speech? Called ‘far-right’, ‘extreme right’, ‘Nazi”….yet the words and actions of real Nazis, like Faruqi and Bandt, are curiously ignored. No senate censure for them!

You all know how I have long called out this verminous hypocrisy, and no doubt some here think I have been vewy mean and rude calling out these hypocrites for what they are…..real Nazis….especially the one who visits here, but here’s the truth, we’re in a war, a war that exploded on October 7 2023, and until those of us on the right get off our polite treadmill and start throwing the truth at these frothing little Nazis we will continue to see the verminous hypocrisy and the never ending double standards run amok.

I say…NO MORE.

Finally, I’ve long said that the Greens are our very own Nazi Party. Greens MPs and senators are our very own Nazis, and those who vote for these Greens Nazis are themselves Nazi sympathisers and are no different to those Germans who voted for Adolf Hitler in 1933.

Last night I went to synagogue for a talk, it is something we always do on the festival of Shavuot. We’re supposed to stay up all night, study Torah, listen to people speak and debate/discuss and argue. A woman spoke about how she’s been doxxed, and she is currently enduring continuous harassment from pro-Palestinian far-left and Muslim Nazis. Her crime?

The 9th Circuit win on the covid vaccine mandate could be enormous. Basically they are saying that any vaccine that doesn’t prevent transmission does not come under the Jacobsen vs Massachusetts ruling (a bizarre ruling in 1905 that has set precedent for the appalling vaccine mandates every American school has).

Of course, no vaccine prevents transmission of a disease for the simple reason that there is no such thing as transmission of a disease but if we just stick to the government talking points, the DTaP cannot be mandated according to the ruling because none of the components of that vaccine are capable of preventing someone having or passing on the supposedly pathogenic bacteria.

The same would go for the IPV (polio), as it would for Hep B (not so much because of the nature of that vaccine but the nature of how that virus supposedly spreads) as it would for the various meningitis vaccines.

The only vaccine left on the mandated schedule would be the MMR.

I repeat, I am only using government talking points about the nature of how each of these vaccines works according to them. In reality, no vaccine works in any manner and diseases are not contagious.

Everybody who believes diseases can be spread is a monumental imbecile. FMD. How often do I need to say it? If you believed that diseases could be spread you wouldn’t visit a doctor if someone was holding a gun to your head – and you certainly wouldn’t take your infant children there.

Via one of Indolent’s links:

But in a conflict between a side that is a fiduciary for its citizens and a foe that basically is unaccountable to its people, the advantage inevitably goes to the latter.

While written about Israel’s northern border and hezbollocks [as always, I refuse to compliment them by using their chosen name], this statement is equally applicable to the war in Gaza. In the latter, the prime combatants – h@m@s and pij [pronounced ‘pig’] have taken no responsibility for the civilian population, which allows them to focus their resources on fighting Israel. My point here is that when pro-porkers compare the technology of Israel’s armed forces with that of their idols [who would gut them without remorse], it is disingenuous, because Israel now – apparently – has the responsibility to feed and ensure the safety of the citizens their enemy refuses to acknowledge. This constrains Israel – the defender – and frees their enemy.

If the necessary thresholds are met, harassment is a criminal offence in NSW.

Indeed, and there are existing laws, but strangely, curiously and oddly there seems to be an unwillingness to use these laws against those who scream ‘f*ck the Jews’, who scream ‘kill the Jews’, and who scream ‘gas the Jews’ (and yes, those words were said on that dreadful October 9 night). In fact, if you’re of the left, the hard-left and a Muslim and you display genocidal antipathy towards Jews and Israel, the NSW Police will provide you with a first-class personal escort and stand back whilst you incite and harass.

But then again, the NSWaffen are able to rise to the occasion, like a morning glory special, helped along with a dose of Viagra from NSW Police HQ, because if you’re supposedly of the far-right yet haven’t broken any laws, if you’re catching a train at North Sydney station on Australia Day, the Viagra soaked NSW Police will swoop down on you like a furious magpie in spring in Centennial Park.

If Labor looked after the other 95% of the electorate they would not need to genuflect to the 5% that are Muslim.

In which case, if the legal threshold of criminal harassment has been met, there would be grounds to make a formal complaint about police refusing to investigate the matter. She could also obtain legal advice about civil action against the alleged culprits.

I would advise the lady concerned to keep scrupulous records of the incidents, if she hasn’t already, and to report to her doctor any adverse impacts on her mental or physical health.

The grounds for the quashing were:

The trial judge erred in ruling the complainant did not have to give evidence about a 2021 interaction with the man she messaged the same day the jury found she was sexually assaulted in 2018, and that the judge’s ruling resulted in a miscarriage of justice.

The complainant had deleted her phone texts where she spoke about having a consensual root with Haynes.

UK animal rights activists target King’s portrait

Animal rights protestors have covered an official portrait of King Charles III with the face of the eccentric, cheese-loving animation character Wallace to campaign for better animal welfare on farms.
In a video shared by Animal Rising, two campaigners are seen sticking an image of Wallace, from the Aardman characters Wallace and Gromit, on top of Charles’s face and a speech bubble at a London gallery.
Activists said the protest was aimed at raising awareness about practices at Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) certified farms.
Jonathan Yeo’s striking red portrait of Charles is on display at the Philip Mould Gallery in London, after being unveiled by the king himself last month.
The speech bubble pasted on Charles, who is an RSPCA patron, read: “No cheese, Gromit. Look at all this cruelty on RSPCA farms!” in a reference to Wallace’s faithful canine companion.

Big question asked.

Are men dissatisfied with their penis size more likely to own a gun? Researchers find out (Phys.org, 11 Jan)

A small team of sociologists from The University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M University, and Florida State University has tested the supposition that men who are unhappy with the size of their penis are more apt to buy a gun—presumably as a way to make up for their perceived shortcomings. …

The first surprise was that there was nothing in the database showing that men dissatisfied with their penis size were more likely to buy a gun. The second surprise was that men who were satisfied with their penis size were slightly more likely to buy a gun. 

Always fun when a widespread social meme gets overturned by scientific data. Got to love sociologists though, the B-Ark is going to packed with them.

New York to Require Gun Sellers to Hang Signs Saying Guns Can Be Dangerous (11 Jun)

New York Senate Bill S6649 will require gun stores and gunsmiths to place signs—yes multiple signs—that warn customers that firearm purchases “significantly increase” the risk of suicide, lethal domestic violence or deadly accidents to children.

The actual warning sign must read:

“Access to a weapon or firearm in the home significantly increases the risk of suicide, death during domestic disputes, and/or unintentional deaths to children, household members and others. If you or a loved one is experiencing distress and/or depression, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988.”

While he pretends to care about the cost-of-living crisis, PM Anthony Albanese, a former federal transport minister, is campaigning to raise one of the key Australian economic input costs by at least 10% to eliminate competition in the trucking industry.

Robert Gottliebsen is today’s Paywallian:

In setting future interest rates, Reserve Bank governor Michele Bullock needs to take into account a likely big boost to Australian road transport costs later in the year.

Major transport industry operators tell me they expect that in the months that follow Australia’s IR Revolution Day, August 26, the unions will use the unprecedented powers awarded to them to ramp up transport industry costs.

Transport people are expecting cost rises of at least 10 per cent and possibly a lot more, which will be passed on and will affect every part of the Australian nation and help underwrite inflation above the Reserve Bank target.

Employers believe the unions’ two top targets after August 26 will be transport and mining. It is possible the transport thrust could be delayed until after the election but that would be a high risk strategy because, if the Coalition came to power, blocking the newly acquired union power in transport would be at the top of its agenda.

Despite pressure from parts of his party to call an early election, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has promised that the government will serve its full term and the election will be around April/May next year. That gives the transport unions time to change the world of transport as we have known it for the last few decades.

Australian road transport costs have been contained in the last decade or two because of our amazing fleet of independent transport operators who are far more flexible than the big operators and their efficiency keeps prices down.

Many larger transport enterprises have been forced by the unions to pay around 20 per cent above award pay rates but often have trouble passing on those higher costs because of the efficient and lower priced independent truckies.

And because the proud independent truckies have their livelihoods on the line with their prized possession – their truck – that is beautifully presented on the roads and often much cleaner than the bigger operators’ trucks.

And because of the pride in their trucks they are among the safest drivers in the land. Tragically for the nation, their role in providing our transport needs to be stopped by government action to enable prices to rise and to create unprecedented union power.

Those suffering from cost of living pressures and higher interest rates would have a different view to the government.

In the early proposals the government looked to resurrect the dreaded Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal which, before being abolished, deliberately tried to put efficient and safe truckies out of business,

In the 700-page industrial relations act the Fair Work Commission has been given incredible power to set minimum rates of pay for contractors in the road transport industry.

The hidden aim of this action appears to be resurrecting, with a different name, the old Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal which set minimum rates for owner drivers that were so high that it put them out of work.

There was community outrage, particularly as the truckies being bankrupted by the tribunal couldn’t sell their beloved trucks at anything like the price they paid because so many were for sale.

Fair Work might not initially make that mistake, but the unions will try to invoke the “same work same pay” clauses in the act to and transpose them to transport contracts set by negotiation between providers of transport and their customers.

There may be lots of legal cases but the independent truckies who don’t somehow or other adapt to a rigged system will be put out of business. Again they will need to sell their trucks.

I suspect that the big winners from the act – the large transport companies who will be able to increase their prices and profits – won’t let the price of trucks fall too far because of the community outrage caused by bankrupted truckies being forced to sell their homes.

Giving a body that regulates employment conditions unprecedented powers to intervene in complex commercial arrangements between road transport businesses and the broader supply chain will have a huge impact on every aspect of the economy.

In his speech to the ACTU Congress earlier this month Prime Minister Anthony Albanese described the action of requiring the wage regulator to change commercial contracts as

“unions standing up for gig workers and owner drivers and working with us to establish a new jurisdiction that will deliver world leading minimum standards. because 21st century technology shouldn’t mean 19th century conditions for delivery workers”.

One could only imagine what would happen if the Prime Minister stood up before a group of proud truckies who look after their vehicle both in safety and hygiene and tell them they operate in 19th century conditions.

Truckies are not politically correct and their justifiable anger might be hard to restrain.

In a sane world the NSW DPP would resign over what she has done to Hayne. And in an even saner world, she would be in prison along with his false accuser.

Somebody in the conservative side of politics needs to come up with legislation that makes prosecutors face some kind of consequences for endless lawfare chasing social media approval. Eg, they have to put up a bond for every case they bring forward – if they lose they lose. And if it comes to light that prosecutors left out exculpatory evidence it is a mandatory 10 year prison sentence.

Of course, the LNP is only slightly less misandrist than the left so expect them to be just as disgusting trying to destroy men as the current Labor governments are.

Bruce Lehrmann asked for $13,250 following alleged ‘extensive damage’ to Sydney apartment
By liam mendes

  • Reporter
  • 3:17PM June 12, 2024

Bruce Lehrmann is being asked to pay $13,250 for alleged “extensive damage” at the multimillion-dollar property in the north-eastern Sydney suburb of Balgowlah provided for him by Seven Network, and pay lost rent.
The former Liberal staffer failed on Wednesday to appear at the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal, where on Wednesday it was heard Lady Gaenor Meakes, the property owner who launched proceedings against him, was seeking $13,250 for coverage of alleged damage.
Her daughter Matilda Meakes, a paralegal appearing on her behalf, confirmed the scope of the claim, stating $13,250 was the amount her mother was claiming. The bond payable for the premises was $10,600.
Mr Lehrmann recently filed an appeal to the Full Court of the Federal Court following his landmark defamation suit loss in April this year during which Justice Michael Lee found, on the balance of probabilities, that he sexually assaulted Brittany Higgins inside Parliament House on the morning of March 23, 2019. The defamation suit was against presenter Lisa Wilkinson and Network 10.
For the Balgowlah apartment, there are two proceedings against Mr Lehrmann: the first, relating to alleged property damage and the second to loss of outstanding rent, with the tribunal previously hearing the two proceedings would likely run together.

There is Orban in Hungary however the US and EU are busy trying to get rid of him, there’s Ron DeSantis in Florida, and of course, there’s Milei in Argentina. Why, according to the left, these people are all either ‘far-right’ or ‘Nazis’ I note that the left, unable to beat Milei electorally, are now trying to smear him as a peterfile……LOL……except it isn’t funny.. The left will stop at nothing to smear, to besmirch and to silence their ideological enemies. Just ask the late George Pell, ask Donald Trump, ask Bolsonaro…..ask even Bibi, busy fighting a war, but now targeted by lawfare.

VDH is a seer of sorts, a man who I listened to a lot in 2020. Everything he said during the year of Georgina Floyddina and the accompanying riots has turned out to be true, I find him very measured, very articulate, very knowledgeable and almost always….very accurate..

m0nster breathlessly reported here yesterday that Milei was “facing charges” of being (to use his favourite mis-characterisation) “a rock-spider”.
The implication being that he was facing criminal charges. It later transpired that the “charges” related to a possible, maybe, threatened civil lawsuit which might be brought by a discredited left-wing feral j’ism.

File this in ‘how to stand up for yourself’ when you feel like roadkill in the medical headlights.

I told Hairy about not getting the info I needed re my displaced fractured coccyx due to a specialist medical consultation that lasted under five minutes. He was all for getting in touch himself with senior medical people he knows personally at that hospital from his own senior exec networking days, who sit on the main oversight committee for morbidity and mortality, including malpractice, but I said no. That might be unfair. Also, I will fight my own battles. This morning I wrote out my actual and detailed clinical concerns for which I said I sought full medical disclosures before deciding upon treatments and emailed them directly to the clinician.

A very quick invitation ensued to meet up tomorrow to clarify things.

I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Maybe he just had a too busy day yesterday.

But don’t be afraid of taking them on. Put it down in writing. As Gilas said, he who knows the medical insiders well, going through the ‘proper’ channels of the HCCC might get you an apologetic letter sometime next year and no changes. Direct action – as Cassie has said it is not just for the left – we on the irate centre-right should also practice it. It shows the limits of our tolerance.

Ex- cop mate has been set up as ” therapeutic victim” for the coroner inquest into the shooting ( not by him) of the mad bitch in Gero about 5 years back.
Cop union – we will represent you – oops no we wint- use this firm instead.. lo and behold that set of lawyers who have complained about the lateness of the brief, will not be available for court on those dates. Oh and he’s also the cove who was attacked with the axe/ hammer by a juvenile mob a few months back.

Coroner has refused an adjournment.
So he will quite possibly be the only person in court unrepresented while they attempt ” procedure” to make the family feel better.

Before the last election the Libs appealed to the AEC to have the Teals formally declared a Political Party which would have meant restrictions on their electioneering, funding and advertising.

It’s likely that Rafe has already covered this, but I found it interesting. Perhaps Climax 200 can tell us how it is to be achieved?

In order to meet the demands of the green energy transition, according to the University of Michigan study as many as six new mines must be built annually over the next several decades. From exploration to construction, it can take 50 years or more to open one.

This is the report itself, apparently, at the International Energy Forum.

A top circumcision doctor has failed to overturn a ban on him performing operations after one boy needed a life saving blood transfusion and another suffered a “full amputation” of his penis.

Dr Hershel Goldman faced a tribunal over the “grave injury” inflicted on two baby boys, both just seven days old, which led to a “potential lifelong impact” for one of the children.

In the “extremely serious” cases during in-home religious ceremonies, one boy suffered a “significant complication” while another was rushed to hospital when family found “the entire penis was amputated at the base” four hours after surgery.

An interesting piece from three weeks ago by Caroline Glick in the Jewish News Syndicate about Egypt’s role in the current war in Gaza, which includes the following:

According to an investigative report in Tablet magazine, in exchange for its “moderating” role in mediating the war between Hamas and Israel, Egypt has received loans and investments from the International Monetary Fund, the European Union and the United Arab Emirates totaling more than $50 billion. While Egypt was on the brink of insolvency on Oct. 6, this inflow of money has now secured Egypt’s financial viability for the next several years.

It is worth reading the whole article.

the West is on the cusp of disintegration as a result of societal and economic transformation. It has been posted in the last few days. It is a compelling argument and has serious implications for all of us.
Hanson is right that the West has been captured by a Left consisting of the media, the academy and those who control the corporate world.

Quite so. Even the conservative media wastes time (theirs and ours) banging on about how ridiculous all those attacks on our foundational concepts are.
The only explanation needed is that it’s a war, and it’s for keeps. Arguing about how silly it is misses the point.

This afternoon our cruise liner will be starting the passage up the Dardanelles Strait. Very interesting area of course, and coincides with a talk I’m giving on the Gallipoli campaign. As the majority of people on the ship are not Aussie have to do a bit of backfilling knowledge-wise, and come at it from a combined British-French-Anzac approach.

According to a quick bit of research I was doing it’s not just the Australian submarine AE2 that rests on the seabed here. There are another four British-French boats – some sources say 7 – that met their end in actions against the Ottoman forces. For all that though they did a lot of damage. Again the sources are hazy but several enemy warships and a lot of freighters were sent to the bottom by the intrepid submariners. Three of the six Victoria Crosses awarded to Allied submariners in WWI were

I have the position of the AE2 wreck on my personal chart but I think it will be in the early morning hours when we pass near her. However on the way back south there will be another opportunity to be near the site where Lieutenant Commander Stoker decided to pull the plug rather than let his boat fall into the hands of the enemy.

RIP to all those who paid the ultimate price in these areas in the 1915 actions.

Aaaand there it is.

This war is about controlling trillions of dollars of minerals, all of which happen to be located in precisely the region that Ukraine was planning to cede in exchange for peace when the US stepped in to scuttle the deal in April 2022.

Our leaders judged the bounty worth tens of thousands of human lives, many of them teenagers. Two years and two hundred billion dollars later, Russia controls all those minerals and vastly more Ukrainian land than they would have under the terms of that original deal.

Now these same leaders dare risk nuclear confrontation as they make a last grasp at those riches — death and destruction, all to pad a few pockets and power the chips in our phones.

Prop comedy news (the Tele):

A judge visiting Townsville to assist with the courthouse’s workload has paused her sentencing to note the “very sad sight” before her.

Wait for it….

Jorgia Morgan Rook, 30, appeared before the court clutching her infant son as she pleaded guilty to supplying and possessing methamphetamines, possessing cannabis, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of items used in commission of supplying a dangerous drug.

This drug-f*cked ‘former socialite’ carried her INFANT SON into court, and carried him as she stood before the beak pleading for clemency. Unbelievable.

Rook appeared in four inch high heels and a short black dress – her baby appeared in a white t-shirt and blue cartoon dinosaur overalls.

Filth. Absolute filth of a ‘mother’. Naturally, the judge was a handpatter:

Judge Jennifer Rosengren said it was “really tragic” to see a young mother in the docks with her baby.

Yes, but not for the reason you think, Er Honour.

The mother broke down in tears as she was being sentenced.

Tears of joy:

Judge Rosengren sentenced Rook to six months imprisonment, paroled immediately

This stupid, stupid judge has clearly not foreseen that this will result in every low-rent skank in the dock forever more will be dragging in various children, stepchildren, nieces, nephews, prosthetic legs, copies of Woman’s Day and used newsagent scratchies to convince idiot judges that they’re really good people.

Tash Peterson: Notorious WA vegan declared fewer than 20 per cent of her earnings
Notorious vegan Tash Peterson earned more than $400,000 by the end of the 2022 financial year — most of which came from her OnlyFans account — but only declared $70,000 in business earnings to the Australian Tax Office.
That is what the WA Supreme Court was told as the outspoken animal rights activist was cross-examined during her defamation trial.
In the footage, Ms Peterson accused the clinic of promoting “animal slavery” and using the two cockatiels — Bruce and Gandalf — as advertising props because they were outside the clinic in a cage.
She also accused vet Dr Kay McIntosh of being an “animal abuser” who “eats her own patients” and the clinic of “enslaving animals and forcing them into murder factories”.
Dr McIntosh and her husband Andrew claim the video not only damaged their reputation by bringing them into “hatred, contempt and ridicule” but that Ms Peterson and Mr Higgs deliberately created it to not only gain publicity but also earn money.
They are claiming Ms Peterson uses her activism stunts to direct people to her OnlyFans page, on which subscribers pay her a fee for the risque content she creates.

The Taxation Office should have her sorry arze for breakfast then, shouldn’t they?
