Greens political body snatch of Gough Whitlam

While trying to make the case that Gough Whitlam’s  policy success are thanks to the Greens, (which did not exist at the time and Whitlam was never a member of) The greens have produce this rather shameful poster.

The Greens attempt to claim credit for Whitlam's policies.

This really speaks volumes about the Greens, totally opportunistic, with gutter level morality and absolutely no sense of tact.

In this spirit of this shameful act on the memory of  a man dead but not even buried yet, we put the shoe on the other fott and give to the greens another great progressive, Joe Hockey.

Most interestingly during the media frenzy around the passing of Whitlam there has been little mention of the constitutional crisis at the time of his sacking, because that would bring up the fact Australia has a constitution, and people might actually start asking questions about the limits of governmental powers it imposes.  Fortunately the Greens will never attempt to claim credit for our work.

 

XBOX and Cheezles

If corporations hadn't taken over politics there might be such a promotion. sadly there is not.

Team Australia

The moment Tony Abbott coined this phrase it was yet another “suppository of wisdom” coming from Tony Abbott’s mouth.

It had ‘memebait’ written all over it. Fortunately SMH was on the job.

Team Australia Meme run by the SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) more or less what I would have done with the comment 'Team Australia'.

For those too young to know what this all means allow me to explain. (Adult themes and language)

Relevance? Today is the first day Australian warplanes began flying armed over the regions disputed by Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan (and of course the boogeyman ‘de jour'; ISIS).

In case there is any blow back, remember no one outside of the Australian political system voted for military intervention, If you want to blame anyone blame a politician.

Australia implements ‘Steve’s law’

Following pressure from a fringe religious group called ‘the servants of Steve’ , the Australian government has buckled to pressure from the group because of it’s control of Australia’s electrical distribution system.

Steve’s Law is a comprehensive legal system which in many ways conflicts with the constitution and many federal and state laws.

 

Death penalty:

• Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (above).
• Criticizing or denying any part of the Book of Steve is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Steve is a prophet is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Steve, the moon god of Steve is punishable by death.

Food:

• Meat to be eaten must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Steve – i.e., be Steve approved.

*All food must be Steve approved no matter who might eat it and Steve certification fees are collected by servants of Steve.

Perjury and dishonesty
• Servants of Steve should engage in being deceptive and lie to non-servants of Steve to advance Steve.

Marriage and family law.
• A servant of Steve who becomes a non- servant of Steve is punishable by death.
• A non-Servant of Steve who leads a servant of Steve away from Steve is punishable by death.
• A non-Servant of Steve man who marries a servant of Steve woman is punishable by death.
• A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.

Women basically have no rights:
• Girls’ clitoris should be cut (per Steve’s words in Book 41, Steve’s awesome book, Steve’s addendum 5251).
• A woman can have 1 husband, but a man can have up to 4 wives; Steve can have more.
• A man can unilaterally divorce his wife but a woman needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
• A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
• Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
• A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
• A woman’s testimony in court, allowed only in property cases, carries half the weight of a man’s.
• A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits.
• A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to chaos.
• A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.

=================================================================
Does it all sound too crazy?

If you replace electrical distribution system with petroleum supply, ‘servant of Steve’ with Muslim, and Steve with Islam/Allah it’s all actually correct.

Now how do you feel about Shari’a law and the demands for its creeping imposition.

This is why people fear the spread of Islam and mosques in Australia

3 colonies 3 polls: no change, hobbits unhappy

Scotland

No t Ye t
The UK probably only offered the independence option because they thought it would not  be taken up but once international market began to get nervous the hype machine had to get into overdrive to push it back in the box.It would be fair to say neither Scotland nor the UK were completely prepared for Scotland to leave with Scotland holding the oil assets and the (war) ship building, and the UK holding the currency, the pension funds and the national health service (NHS). Sort of like winning the lottery and thinking of leaving your wife only to find out she gets half of everything anyway, and the kids aren’t ready to leave home either.

On the positive side: more powers of self rule were offered in order to sway the vote back to the ‘no independence’ camp where it had looked dangerously lacking.

New Zealand

Despite mounting evidence of deep corruption in New Zealand political system  New Zealand returned a largely unchanged parliament,
and returned John Key formerly of the Federal Reserve Bank of the USA as its leader. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

Positive side: all the international based shills will now pull up stakes and fade out of the picture.

Negative side: Hone Harawira, a strong campaigner for the poor, appears to have lost his place in parliament.

And now we get to hear about all the ‘irregularities’ in these polls, will be very interesting.

 

Fun fact: all of the places discussed were or currently are controlled by the UK in some way.

Abbott simulator

I was thinking of a serious look at 9/11 but I really didn’t feel like it. So for now something unrelated to this auspicious date, and somewhat more entertaining.

You should see something like this:

Abbott stop the boats simulator. Oh the LOLS.

Something a little lighthearted on a day when we might be a bit glum.

Pakistani pedophiles rape 1400 kids in 16 years: Rotherham UK

The more disturbing elements to this case are the following:

Authorities refused to act due to fears of being branded a racist, because perpetrators were Pakistani in origin.

Pedophiles were transporting children to be abused in a network style operation.

Fathers attempting to rescue their children were arrested by police.

Clive Palmer apologises to Chinese mongrels

 $orry…

 

1378607826568 redux

 

Clive Palmer has now shown what a shrewd operator he is. Many saw his apparent spray at the Chinese government as an off the cuff frustration as the QandA presenter pressured him on a commercial case he was embroiled in. Whether Clive realized it not (an we suspect with the money he has he can afford the best advice) he attacked at the most critical point.

Clive has shown he is able to legitimately convert financial power into political and media power.

This gave Clive Palmer two powerful weapons in his current cases against a Chinese business over money he is owed.

 

Mongrels, Bastards!

Palmer seemingly cornered, raises the stakes threatening to do the unthinkable.

The Chinese government hates scandals.

 

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mongrel

In Australian  English ‘Mongrel’ means or mixed breed dog , applied to sports (particularly boxing) means tough aggressive man.

Mike Tyson’s boxing style might be described as Mongrel, tough, aggressive, and lacking complex technique.

When translated, the term Mongrel means mixed or hybrid.

Chinese are very sensitive on questions of race and race mixing and genealogy.

Bastard looses nothing in the translation but is generally considered more offensive in China than here, as the Chinese are very conservative in family matters.

Chinese are also very sensitive to insults in general, so much effort is spend on keeping up good appearances (saving face) it becomes a significant distraction in day to day life.

Chinese people eats dogs and wealthy people eat more dogs that those who are poor. Chinese people realize westerners find the idea of eating dog objectionable seeing dogs  largely as beloved pets or animals of service. Even wild or feral dogs which are culled are not eaten in the west, eating dog s is seen as a cultural taboo through much of the west.

Bastard also continues the theme of sexual improper conduct and adds in illegitimacy and despicable nature.

You have got more to loose than me. Game on!

You have got more to loose than me. Game on!

 

The most curious thing about the uses of these insults is that they are an anachronism even for someone of Clive Palmer’s age. The terms are now obscure in language generally, and are considered locally only mildly offensive.

So a mildly offensive remark in the Australian vernacular translates via a dog whistle (pun intended) to a highly offensive slur against a litigation opponent very much under control of the Chinese government. It entirely possible this scandal has reduced the resolve of Palmer’s opponent in the court case due to Chinese Government political pressure.  On the third party adjudicator side of the commercial case, the court is now under pressure to resolve the case in Palmer’s favor, as he is willing to damage trade relations with a very important international trade partner.  Palmer’s PUP party has a controlling wedge in the senate, able to block any legislation the opposition wont support. The opposition is unlikely to support Liberal/national policy because of its shock doctrine budget.

That’s a hell of a gambit by a man who can afford to move large pieces on the board.

They backed down, my stones are this big.

They backed down, my stones are this big.

 

Clive Palmer clearly is economically rational and hardly a man to do any thing without very careful precognition. Palmer openly admits he rarely attends the lower house where he is a member citing the fact his single vote there generally makes little difference in the outcomes. This in itself a dog whistle to the disenchanted vote who see both major parties as being out of touch and rightly seeing greens as being destructive Marxists. This was no accident, it was a carefully planned and disguised scandal to get leverage in his commercial case.

 

The apology was a week in forth coming so one can imagine the back room horse trading that was done to produce such an apology and smooth things over.

 

OK we can negotiate now.  How much did you say we owed you?

OK we can negotiate now.

Best of I I'm tapping into nationalism and resentment of job losses to China, general dishonesty in Chinese business practices, and I'm dog whistling to the public that I'm a hero of the people strong enough to stand up against a bigger opponent.

Clive Palmer now has significant leverage in his commercial case, after all he would not appear on a leftist echo chamber like QandA without a good reason.

Money is always a good reason.

*Scoring political points a good ancillary benefit.

How did the Chinese government feel about this?

Socialists, powertripping bureaucratic dishonest squabbling and bullying

I could make such bold claims just from observation of the ways socialism has utterly failed in almost every place it has been  imposed on any community, nation or state.

But don’t believe an individual with a bald face claim not matter how credible the source is, do your own research.

Here is where an Australian based socialist  (believed to be Ben Debney) attacks and smears each others peoples characters with calls of traitor, liar, —-phobic, stare rape, etc.

http://fairweathercomrades.wordpress.com/

Gee where is all their social justice and love of comrades when it is sorely needed? Oh that’s right that was just another lie they circulated for the useful idiots to believe.

It’s no surprise they claw each others eyes out, socialism is a dishonest and logically flawed ideology.

Do you think socialism could be the solution for you well consider this:

Socialism and the death toll.

Socialism and the death toll. Remember Nazi is short for NATional SocIalist.

 

Still think you and a few committed people you know can form a good committee and get things done properly?

cc-1917Remember Stalin got to be the great leader because he killed (or imprisoned) of all of his comrades who were competing for the top job, after Lenin died. Even in Lenin’s time it was not a safe happy place. More top soviet socialists were killed by their comrades than during the  civil war itself.

 

  It turns out that the ‘capitalist pigs’ were less blood thirsty than the cult of Karl Marx.

Worlds largest organised crime network: Police

But that’s only USA I hear you say…Sorry it’s a worldwide network and largely the same everywhere.

 

Well lets have at look at the level of criminality and dishonesty in NSW Police.

1 in 40 members of NSW police force have a criminal conviction, we are not just talking about their proclivity for drunk driving. We are talking about serious offending. Why are they still police?

A great story here from Quentin Dempster and Richard McDonald

GIPA document listing criminal convictions held by NSW police officers.

It’s not a good story without a specially crafted infographic to compress the story to a single tantalizing image.

NSW police crimes meme

* Some of the police pictured above may be innocent, yeah its a crazy world, not so long ago we had a Jewish Hitler youth as Pope.

For the whiny police who have a union but spend plenty of time breaking up other protests, offenses were grouped together into rough categories for conceptual simplicity, so don’t cry into your beer while driving home tonight.
