21.04.19. Ruby Australia have sure opened a can of worms with the Israel Folau rigmarole. Herein are two journalist’s accounts on the matter. The unlikelihood of Fairfax’s Elizabeth Farrelly, a recipient of MM’s coveted “Wankley Award”, even though she seeks to weave in Julian Assange into her fabric—and the expected stand by Alan Jones. Both cite Folau’s right to freedom of expression. Rugby Australia and some commentators claim Folau breached his contract. Such a restrictive clause in a work contract, should there be one, will no doubt be tested in court.
However, greatly perplexing this commentator is what lies at the root of this affair—the involvement of Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, Australia’s champion of SSM and avowed queer. Invoking the old adage, in part, “Hell hath no fury like poof scored,” we don’t know the extent, if any, of Alan Joyce’s intervention.
Alan Jones writes, “The bed wetters are now running around squeaking that Qantas may pull their sponsorship because Alan Joyce wants Rugby Australia to sack Folau and, apparently, any of his mates who hold similar views.” He also says, If Joyce is not applying the weights to Rugby Australia, let him clear the air and say so.” More
Labor has demanded Facebook investigate apparent “fake news” posts claiming the opposition is planning to introduce a “death tax” on inheritances, in the first major test of the social media giant’s promise to crack down on false election material. More
21.04.19. Well, the Leftist media have put their dough on Bill Shorten for the Lodge. They run interference for an idiot who proves himself to be in way over his head—as exposed in recent days. Shorten’s expertise is largely restricted to sneaky betrayals of the poor union buggers who believe his deceptions which have been keenly honed to a stiletto point over the years in a intellectually stunted environment of Marxist uniform mantra. With increasing social media and alternate news blogs like this one MSM Leftist scribblers will be remembered for their bias and given no quarter for their failures. Chris Kenny won’t be one of them that’s for sure!
Chris Kenny in The Weekend Australian:
The Easter break won’t have come soon enough for Bill Shorten. He desperately needs to regroup after a disastrous first week of the federal election campaign. The Opposition Leader misled the nation about $30 billion worth of additional superannuation taxes, refused to answer questions, made factual errors and launched into a paranoid media conspiracy.

President Trump in June 2017 gave his former campaign manager a directive: Tell then-Attorney-General Jeff Sessions to publicly declare that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was treating the president “very unfairly.” Corey Lewandowski, not wanting to deliver the message himself, asked senior White House official Rick Dearborn to do so. Mr. Dearborn told Mr. Lewandowski he had handled the situation — but did nothing. More
China’s navy will mark 70 years since its founding next week, in a parade that will show off new warships including nuclear submarines and destroyers, giving the emergent superpower the chance to flaunt its wealth and new-found military muscle. More
case in point – Vox.
Vox is a fast-rising Spanish populist party which describes itself as a socially conservative political project aimed at defending traditional Spanish values from the challenges posed by migration, multiculturalism and globalism.
Vox’s foundational mission statement affirms that the party is dedicated to constitutional democracy, free-market capitalism and the rule of law.
Spanish prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation to determine whether the secretary general of Vox, is guilty of hate speech for warning of an “Islamist invasion.” More
300,000 years ago, about 100km west of what is now known as Marrakesh, a group of homo sapiens lived in a cave overlooking a verdant Moroccan landscape. There they resided and used fires to cook on and keep warm. They hunted with sharpened stone tools to slay animals. And they died there, (probably from food poisoning) leaving their bones laying in the dirt. Nobody wanted them. Like the Australian Aborigine there would have been nothing particularly notable about that. They were members of a nascent ape species that spread across Africa. But today their discovery has become important. They are the oldest yet found. 60,000 years of our mob makes them youngsters—don’t bother moaning of you are offended.
In total, 53 ancestors’ remains are being returned to Australia by Germany this month Germany is returning the remains of dozens of Aboriginal ancestors to Australia in what has been called the largest handover of its kind. More
Senate candidate Clive Palmer’s promised redundancy payments to sacked Queensland Nickel workers have been put off by the billionaire businessman until after the election. The United Australia Party leader this week made the surprise announcement he would pay out the $7 million in entitlements still owed to employees of his Townsville-based nickel and cobalt refinery, which went into liquidation in 2016, costing nearly 800 people their jobs.
