06.08.20.  Sky News host Alan Jones says the COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria and Australia is not a pandemic but a catastrophic state government failure. Mr Jones pointed to each state’s total number of active cases in comparison to Victoria, which with 25 per cent of the population, also has 63 per cent of the total nation-wide deaths and 89 per cent of current cases. In the ACT, South Australia, and Tasmania there are currently no active cases, while there are seven sick in Queensland, and six in NSW. “I thought a pandemic was a disease which was prevalent over a whole country or the world,” Mr Jones said. “I think that spells four words; catastrophic state government failure.” “We have never seen this incompetence in the history of Australian government More

06.08.20.  Hang on! Everyone wanting five minutes of fame is hard at work modelling  with their ‘playdough’. Only five days ago mathematical biologist, that sounds like a new invention, Deborah Cromer of the University of NSW’s Kirby Institute predicts 1000 new cases per day! Read here. You can get the recipe on how to make your own playdough on the net. Today, Dennis Shanahan exposes “secret modelling” saying much the same thing with good usage of, “Confidential modelling!” Dr Cromer might be wondering if her hypothesis has been pinched? Nevertheless, the prospects are more than daunting.
Victorians face weeks of higher coronavirus infections, with average daily cases to peak at 1100 by the end of next week and staying above 1000 for eight days. The Victorian government’s own estimates, obtained by The Australian, show the average number of new cases is not ­expected to decline until the last week of August. It will remain above 300 a day even as the restrictive stage-four lockdown is scheduled to end in mid-September. More

06.08.20.  It’s impossible to accept the utter bullshit frequently spruiked, “we’re all in this together” crap as our dislocated, political elite wish to con us. The list of pain now being suffered and worsening by the day is far from being tallied. But one important matter remains set in concrete—immovable! Not one public servant or politician has lost their job or had a pay cut—in fact they have awarded themselves pay rises exemplifying the great lie of all being in it together. That idiot in Victoria is the highest paid premier in Australia! After reading the following you will be left with the a feeling of despair, of betrayal, and palpable dislike for the selfish cretins we placed in a Parliamentary seat for a lifetime of unwarranted luxury. It has become clear why successive governments have zealously moved the disarm its citizens! Do have a good day—if you can, because we are the only ones in this destructive crap together!
The Morrison government spent more than half a million taxpayer dollars to fix leaky pot plants outside the VIP dining room for politicians in Parliament House. According to Senate president Scott Ryan, the Department of Parliamentary Services spent $520,819.20 on landscaping in the exclusive courtyard garden — located on level two with views overlooking the Canberra Bubble™.

06.08.20.  Writing as a onetime food writer, this Ed. assumes authority to be opinionated on the subject of taste as it is a fact that palates vary and that combined with a plethora of conditions like visual, smell, texture and long established dislikes—Brussel sprouts, perhaps, or a slimy raw oyster leaping over one’s tonsils into the chasm of digestion, taste is indeed subjective., as are the descriptors. Now read what a food writer had to say about the Asian fruit, Durian.  And the Woke morons piled on. If you have eaten durian you know full well it’s no accident if you like them. But once able to ignore the wicked smell of death, as one writer suggested, the participant is soon hooked. But those that can’t bypass the bloody stink might align it with eating a chocolate eclair in a smelly railway urinal. There, that should suffice to smoke out the morons of “Wokdome’! Oh, yes! The rambutan does resemble the coronavirus.
In late June, New York Times’s South-East Asia bureau chief Hannah Beech wrote an article in which she described a pile of mangosteens as “an exercise in disappointment”, said durian stank of “death” and concluded many of the region’s native fruits hovered “between delectable and decayed”. The article, titled Eating Thai Fruit Demands Serious Effort but Delivers Sublime Reward, elicited heated responses online. More

06.08.20.  It’s a fine mess that the universities of Australia find themselves facing—a big fat “F” for failure—and these are the institutions charged with higher learning. They have prostituted excellence for filthy lucre—predominantly Chinese lucre and now that ‘pound of flesh’ is being exacted in a shameful manner—as this article describes. What legacies are to be left for whom to admire and claim excellence? Doctorates in cheating and coercion?
Australian university lecturers are being cowed into lowering their academic standards by “highly organised” networks of international students making co-ordinated attacks against any staff members whose assignments and examinations prove too difficult to pass. Despite presenting themselves as the purveyors of elite education, academics at some of the country’s most prestigious universities said they had been forced to “dumb down” courses to ensure foreign students with little or no English were able to complete degrees — or else they risked being targeted by official complaints signed by groups of up to 100 pupils.

06.08.20.  Confusing rules and different rules for different people are the product of a poor and confused leadership. The pandemic has put the government to the test and now they have their results—civil disobedience and growing anger. A Sydney mayor says his council was not notified about a special exemption given to a local mosque for up to 400 worshippers to attend a service for Eid. The New South Wales government granted the permit for a service last Friday, allowing more than the current limit of 100 people into the Auburn Gallipoli Mosque in Western Sydney. Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou told Sky News he wasn’t told, and that’s not good enough. A spokesperson for New South Wales Health said local councils were not usually involved in health order exemptions but the police and local health district were informed. More

06.08.20. Australia’s relations with China are becoming our most important foreign policy issues. China’s rapid economic growth is slowing while it is entering a period of uncertainty with the Western world. It has been a key trading and investment partner for Australia, but recent tariff and trade restrictions imposed on us is bringing that into question. The increasing Beijing confidence in asserting its position in regional and global affairs in a very much bullying way is creating real tensions with the US and its allies. At the same time, however, the decline of Maoist ideology and the decline of the Communist Party’s control over people’s daily life is throwing the legitimacy of the Party into question at home. Gatestone Institute’s Lawrence A. Franklin discusses the need to contain China: More

05.08.20.  Australia’s involvement with other nations in the forming of a strategy to handle the increasing threat from China on many fronts is an important and overdue welcome—even if it is reactive rather than proactive. At least, the West is awaking to the extent of China’s infiltration and interference in sovereign nation issues. It is imperative that West stands in committed solidarity and fully united in their agenda.
Scott Morrison and national security chiefs have briefed state and territory leaders on the threat level of Chinese interference, ahead of a major address by the Prime Minister to a US strategic forum warning of the unprecedented militarisation of the Indo-Pacific, cyber attacks and an “assault” on liberal democracies. Mr Morrison’s speech comes as the government moves to ramp up the nation’s cyber defences, offensive capability and protection of critical infrastructure through its Cyber Security Strategy, which is expected to be approved by cabinet this week.

05.08.20.  An apocalyptic explosion “akin to Hiroshima” has destroyed large parts of downtown Beirut, killing at least 25 and injuring 2500 on the eve of a sensitive political court verdict. Shocked Beirut City Governor Marwan Aboud said the scale of the damage was so enormous that Beirut was “a disaster city”. He said the blast was a “national disaster akin to Hiroshima’’ and the number of fatalities was expected to skyrocket. An enormous orange fireball and mushroom cloud of smoke enveloped Beirut, with the shock blast smashing glass, destroying buildings, flattening houses and tossing cars from the nearby motorway as if they were toys.
