• Guest post: Cassie of Sydney – Tone Deaf

    In a recent podcast for the IPA (an organisation I no longer belong to) Tony Abbott discusses the malaise running amok in the once great Liberal Party of Australia.  Firstly, before I continue, I need to state that I haven’t listened to the podcast and I even if I could I probably wouldn’t listen.  No…

  • I Didn’t See That Coming

    It’s with no sense of satisfaction that I note the materialisation of my prediction on the old Cat. As the lockdowns continue, and the ‘voluntary’ vaccination rates climb, I see the pressure mounting on the hesitant from two different directions. That is, from Governments, in the form of ever louder hints of vaccination apartheid, and…

  • Aid and comfort to the enemy

    Which is the classical American definition of treason. Here is a list worth pondering: Complete List of Armaments US Is Leaving to Taliban and Islamist Groups. This is the one in the list below that really caught my eye: “Pallets with Millions of Dollars in US Currency”. Just like Obama with Iran. This was not just…

  • Guest Post: Matrix Transform – When did we become a nation of Liars?

    Daughter #3 and her boyfriend found themselves legitimately in his parent’s holiday house at the start of LuckDan 6.0(b) and so, they stayed there. Now, boyfriend’s online biz needs supplies, and he finds he has to travel back into Babylon to get them. Is he legitimately allowed to do this? Who knows? So, he does,…

  • Australia First

    I was at my church’s parish council meeting, via Zoom of course, on Monday when our minister referred to the call by Sydney’s Anglican Archbishop Kanishka Raffel for the government to accept more Afghan refugees. I admit to going off a little. In part I said that it would be compassionate if the archbishop was…

  • Guest post: Thefrollickingmole- Do we save the administrative state?

    The thoughts in this article were triggered by one of the most RTWT pieces produced over the last week or so since it was shown that EVERY agency, military, civilian and NGO involved in Afghanistan was worse than clueless. Hundreds of thousands of experts, top in their respective fields, all failed to see 20 years…

  • Mater’s Musings #11: 2020…a Round-Up (or Round-Down)

    So let’s have a look at the scoreboard on 3 January 2021, having passed through two waves of Covid in this Country. Let’s call it a belated New Years Eve party! That’s right folks. Despite all the panic and carry on, according to their own figures and table, if you are under the age of…

  • Mater’s Musings #10: Australia…moving forward!

    My son asked me recently: “Is it true that the Kangaroo and Emu were chosen for our coat of arms because they can’t move backwards?” “Why yes, yes it is”, was my answer. That’s the official reasoning, anyway, and clearly the answer the teacher was after. The shield is held up by the native Australian…

  • Lockdowns good, freedom bad

    I see that cases reached a new record or something in NSW today and Victorian cases continue to defy Daniel Andrews.  Clearly the lockdowns are working. Case numbers would be ever so much higher without lockdowns. Rising cases show that lockdowns work because they would be higher without them; just as falling cases some months…

  • Guest Post: C.L. – Afghanistan: Perversity, Culpability and Just Deserts

    AS nobody ever said, “when we win the war in Afghanistan…” Think about it. At no time in the last 20 years did any ‘leader’ of the defunct Coalition of the Willing – political, military or otherwise – ever speak of victory. Nor did they encourage their publics to believe victory was even desirable. It…
