    I have just scrolled through this morning’s ‘Gateway Pundit’ offerings.


    Just the headlines, without even opening the articles, would make anyone but the most rusted-on (and blinkered) Democrat uneasy about America’s immediate future. I cannot see the US electorate copping the ‘nothing to me seen here; move along’ line (which seems to be the Biden Administration plan), particularly after losing their jobs thanks to the ‘enlightened, woke’ policies the Biden Administration have introduced from Day One.

    Donald Trump was and remains the most popular President of the United States of America. He won the 2020 Presidential election in a landslide which was reversed by the biggest ever fraud ever perpetrated upon the citizens of the United States of America since the inception of the republic.

    Will this blatant and obvious (to most) substantial fraud go unchallenged now the puppet of the left has been made President of the United States of America by those who participated in this massive fraud?

    Now we gain an inkling how this fraud was carried out, firstly the media is manipulated by ownership limited to a small select few, the US legislature is also corrupted by the appointment of judges whom are compromised substantially, how else can these government officials ignore the substantial evidence presented and ignored by the legislature unless it is (legislature) truly corrupt?

    I clearly see parallels within our own situation in Australia, all done slowly, slowly, whilst our freedoms and democracy are whittled away quietly with objections ignored. We have a ‘plant’ for a Prime Minister, we have the Chinese virus reported as killing millions whilst mainstream disease takes a back seat to allow the continuance of restrictions upon the Australian people, we have ongoing fake and hostile news being invented and promoted by the main stream media and the abominable treacherous non-compliant ABC, we saw in Queensland recently the manipulation of the election by Puzzleduck via the Chinese software at the Queensland Electoral Commission, this manipulation, including ballot boxes not sealed and ignored, the dead arising from graves to vote, the bullying of election officials by union thugs, has set the standard for the future.

    Now the electoral standard has been set by the US of A and the recent Queensland elections we may move on to government without holding those bothersome and expensive elections in the future, because there is no point holding an election when the outcome has already been decided by those pulling the strings.

    As PP ‘sees’ it, our once great nation, has been lost to those of Communist bent, forever.

  • Botswana O'Hooligan 25/01/2021, 9:06 am

    And we decry Russian politics PP, so too many other countries where the incumbents get more votes than there are electors. Our system is no different to theirs, just a bit more civilised, but the end result is the same. So much for democracy, the lefties and ratbags have used it against us.

    • Graham+Richards 11/02/2021, 11:35 am

      BE ALERT:

      We have an election coming up within 24 months and the most desperate Labor Party ever. We know how rat cunning this mob are so watch for all the dirty tricks including voter fraud.
      Remember one of their most popular power brokers always said & indeed continues his philosophy of “ whatever it takes”. These people, no matter how charming they may appear never change. They just become more desperate & devious.
      Look at Albo now brazenly reversing his narrative from shut the coal mines to “we are so worried about regional workers” but never mentions his party is still hell bent on shutting down the mining industry to save the planet!!

  • Albert 25/01/2021, 11:06 am

    I totally agree with PP but, we must stop this continual whinging about the current state of the nation/politics and get up on our hind legs and fight back. There are many way to resist the conduct of our laughably incompetent and dishonest and erroneously called ‘leaders’. If it comes to a bit of rough and tumble the so be it.

  • Neville 25/01/2021, 10:44 pm

    Don’t worry everybody – the new Fraudulent of the United States will save us all, all sweetness and light, all holding hands together as we run laughing into the glorious morning sun of marxism-leninism, with stalin (he of the estimated 100 MILLION murders) smilingly nodding and looking on, all in the name of the state, which will now tell us all what to do, say, eat, drink, live, …. oh, wait a minute, hang on, ….

      All the proof is there but the USA media will not investigate or discuss it!
      I believe it’s now illegal to mention “election fraud” in the new Socialist Republic.

    Germany …… unreliable energy transition and now EV and the lights are flickering.

    But read the comments following.


    • Tamworth 03/02/2021, 8:09 am

      From the link:-

      To deal with the power grid instability problems, Germany’s Economics Minister Peter Altmaier presented a draft law that would allow electric utilities “to temporarily cut off the charging power for e-cars when there is once again too little electricity available”, an idea known as “peak smoothing”.
      “Shutdowns due to power shortages have been practiced for some time. Aluminum smelters, for example, have to put up with having their power cut off for limited periods of time,” reports Tichys Einblick. “These, like refrigerated storage facilities, consume great amounts. It’s a dangerous game because after three hours the molten metal has solidified and the factory is ruined.”

      • Graham+Richards 11/02/2021, 11:53 am

        In South Africa, their blackouts which continue after about 2/3 years & getting worse, are officially referred to as “Load Shedding”.
        This is exactly the same principal as “Peak Smoothing “ practised by a 3rd world country with a disastrously declining economy.
        The 2 terms mean “switching off your power because we don’t have enough to go around”, just using different words for the identical outcome!! The Germans are supposedly a very intelligent mob. Maybe by 3rd world standards. I guess they want equality & are determined to go down to meet their standards of equality. You can’t make this stupidity up!

  • PW 27/01/2021, 7:10 pm

    Time for laws to be overhauled.
    Alleged 17 yo murder of 2 people using a stolen vehicle. Cannot be tried in an adult court, WTF.
    Had no idea that “children” are legally allowed to drive a car on our streets.

    • Pensioner Pete 30/01/2021, 7:05 am

      The blame for this outrageous situation may be laid squarely at the feet of the Puzzleduck government, for they, and they alone make the soft laws regarding juvenile crime. The weak as dishwater LNP must also carry a good proportion of the blame for the continuing out of control crime wave sweeping the state, in particular Cairns, Townsville, Logan, Toowoomba and elsewhere as the situation continues to worsen.

      What an appalling sight to see Puzzleduck shedding crocodile tears at the scene of this current atrocity for which the blame must be sheeted home where it belongs, the Queensland Labor Government.

      Will any of the relevant laws be changed as a result of the huge public outcry over this situation, PP reckons not.

  • Albert 28/01/2021, 9:06 am

    There are two burning questions that have been gnawing away at me for some time. Can anyone answer them?
    1. Why are we teaching Chinese Nationals in our universities when their country has become our enemy?
    2. How much is the taxpayer forking out on Aboriginal university educations?

    • Cliff 28/01/2021, 1:36 pm

      With apologies to Andrew Bolt, may I add: have you seen the complexion of some of those ‘aboriginal’ children we (the taxpayer) are paying to attend private schools to ‘level the playing field’?

      Playing is the operative word. We (the taxpayers) are being played by some scammers, some of whom might actually have one pufteenth of aboriginal blood.

    • luk1955 29/01/2021, 10:43 am

      1) Our politicians and academics all love fraternizing with the enemy.
      2) I didn’t know any indigenous were capable of uni studies.

  • Margaret 28/01/2021, 9:45 am

    I thought it couldn’t get any crazier in the US but it seems there is no limit. A 31 year old man posted on Twittter in 2016, “Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘[Candidate’s first name]’ to 59925[.] Vote for [the Candidate] and be a part of history.” The fine print at the bottom of the image stated: “Must be 18 or older to vote. One vote per person. Must be a legal citizen of the United States. Voting by text not available in Guam, Puerto Rico, Alaska or Hawaii. Paid for by [Candidate] for President 2016.”
    I am pleased to read The DOJ regards a person’s vote as sacred. The DOJ says “the defendant exploited a social media platform to infringe one the of most basic and sacred rights guaranteed by the Constitution: the right to vote.”
    Douglass Mackey’s (aka Ricky Vaughn has now been arrested.

  • Albert 28/01/2021, 3:47 pm

    It is interesting what you find when you go looking.
    Did you know that all you need to become an Aboriginal: An Indigenous organisation in the area where you currently live may be able to provide you with a letter of confirmation. However, if your family is from somewhere else you may need to contact an Indigenous organisation in that area – someone in the community might know or remember your family.

    Or you can go down the One Nation path: One Nation NSW has proposed to abolish self-identification and introduce a “new system” relying on DNA ancestry testing with a result requiring a finding of at least 25 per cent “Indigenous” before First Nations identification is accepted.

    Is the first option open to abuse?? As for option two – do you think that 25 percent is enough or would 50% be nearer the mark?

    • Pensioner Pete 28/01/2021, 8:24 pm

      A graded system of DNA may be the way to go, say an Aboriginal claimant showing 100% as an Aboriginal is entitled to 100% of the benefits, an Aboriginal claimant showing 60% as Aboriginal is entitled to 60% of the benefits, an Aboriginal claimant showing 30% as Aboriginal is entitled to 30% of benefits, all the way down to zero. No Aboriginal shown in the DNA equals no benefits and if attempts to claim continue, then prosecution for fraud.

      Perhaps this is a workable solution?

      • PW 29/01/2021, 7:09 am

        That should work and die out in a couple of generations since they can’t stand marrying each other. Even Stan The Tan ditched his for a whitie.

      • luk1955 29/01/2021, 10:40 am

        No. The Aborignals are Australian just like the rest of the population of this continent. No exceptions.

      • Cliff 29/01/2021, 11:54 am

        Pete, with apologies, but re your suggestion: haven’t we all be just told that we are all ONE and free?

      • Pensioner Pete 29/01/2021, 2:39 pm

        Cliff: My observations show to me, we are not ‘one’ and we are not ‘free’.

        Only those select few, are ‘free’ to do what they want, when they want, without any respect for the laws of the land.

      • Cliff 30/01/2021, 4:33 am

        PP, I think it would be fair to say that we are in furious agreement on our observations of those two words ‘one’ and ‘free’ in our national anthem, particularly the ‘one’.

        We are fast descending into becoming a state practising official Apartheid. But to the Lefties, (and, it would seem, more than a few who profess to be on the Right), that’s quite OK, so long as it’s whitie who wears the slave collar – AND provides all the money to finance it and provide the endless benefits to those who proclaim themselves to be of ‘The Oppressed’.

      Identify the Stasi thugs and dox them, ie publish their names and addresses. Then hope some patriots might be able to administer some rough justice under Rule 223.

      • Pensioner Pete 30/01/2021, 9:06 am

        Sir Peter: A good suggestion indeed, as the precedent has already been set in the early 1980’s by BJ Peterson the then Premier of Queensland who named and shamed the electricity workers who were on strike against their replacement by contract workers. I will never forget this as I was endeavouring to run a town water supply system with two slots of 4 hours of power per day for around a fortnight at the time and unable to attain an exemption as an essential service to the community.

        This insight into events at the time makes for some interesting reading in how to deal with out of control megalomaniac’s like Dog Ears Dan in Victoriastan. Refers: https://www.solidarity.net.au/unions/defying-the-law-the-queensland-1982-general-strike/

        Clearly, the power lays with the people and they need to exercise this power now!

  • Botswana+O'Hooligan 30/01/2021, 9:20 am

    PP I resigned from the Party after that, told Joh too for he always introduced me as “the bloke who taught Beryl to fly” but I didn’t. I agreed with him pulling the union into gear but not blackballing those blokes for life and taking their livelihood away from them after he taught them a lesson. Ever after I have always had a gen set in the garage or shed “just in case” and it might be needed again soon if the greenies have their way.

  • Pensioner Pete 30/01/2021, 10:21 am

    For consideration regarding gubbermints. Put up as a joke, however the reality is somewhat scary.

    Oxford University researchers have discovered the densest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (symbol=Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

    These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called pillocks. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

    A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete. Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years., though when a particularly noxious neutron is part of the element, the half-life can be far less but feel much longer.

    Governmentium does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganisation in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

    This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as a critical morass.

    When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium (symbol=Ad), an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium, since it has half as many pillocks but twice as many morons.

  • Xi Jinping the Aussie 31/01/2021, 11:13 am

    A genuine question: Is there hope for White Australia?

    I do not see any Nationalist Tendencies of White Australia. Has white Australia lost it’s spine?

    Is anyone doing anything the immigration issue?

    Do we have any potential candidate of an Australian Donald Trump that may come to light and drain our swamp?

    I’m not an advocate of defeatism. If you choose to fight you should fight to the last man but my personal answers to the last questions above are Yes, No, No.

    White Australia will die. If you combine our complete loss of identity with the geo-political math the odds are very low.

    The question is – how long do we have?

    I’d love to see an analysis of birth rates and immigration statistics if anyone knows of some articles.

    • John 03/02/2021, 8:29 am

      XJ, That would be assuming those statistics havn,t been …um… adjusted. Somebody, somewhere obviously decided the Central Coast of NSW has been an anglo saxon stronghold for too long. The last year has seen almost all the houses for sale in this locale sold to Africans, Asians or Arabs.
      How long do we have?. Not long at all.

  • Albert 04/02/2021, 10:24 am

    The Cory Bernardi Confidential lobbed in my in-box this morning. Disappointingly Cori is putting up the weights of that useless, shifty, two-faced cretin they call our PM. Cori is telling anyone who is interested that the Morrison is running the country extremely well and is in a good position to win the next election – which could be held this year if Morrison thinks he is on a winner.
    Now, while I certainly don’t want that gaggle of Labor geese becoming the government of this country I most certainly will not be voting for the double-dealing Morrison, especially after he was ‘outed’ this week over his part in the SAS/Brereton affair. He has been proven to be nothing more than a untrustworthy lying hypocrite who is far from fit to be the leader of this country or any other.
    He was invited onto the Alan Jones show on Sky News but refused because he didn’t have the guts to face up to questions about his sneaky involvement in the SAS stitch-up.

    In The Tele Feb 5th rugby league star Payne Haas proved he is as his name suggests, a pain in the (h)ars.
    I don,t know his cultural background and think it less important than how to stop the darn cockatoos eating my bushnuts..
    Apparently during a rage attended by police he repeatedly called policewomen and men “c”s and “f”,s , courageously threatening he would assault a policewoman, woman or not. All in the presence of his pregnant partner.
    NRL, s chief gender adviser Catharine Lumby says he needs cultural understanding, some people,s cultures may have a distrust of police and she applauds him for showing genuine remorse. I wonder how she worked out it was genuine, not “trying it on” remorse?.
    No conviction, a good behaviour bond. That,ll teach him.
    But why the hell has the the NRL got gender advisors, apparently lots of them seeing Lumby is a senior one?. And whatever they pretend to do, obviously isn,t working.
    Hasn,t he got a grandmother, mother, sister (an Auntie??) let alone male relations who should have explained that women should be afforded every courtesy and respect, more so than a male and never, not even threatened with, or actually harmed.
    And they wonder why there are repeat offenders. Think I`ll go and offend some cockatoos. White ba..st…ds.

    A piece in The Federalist, nice biting satire wrapped in an on-point argument about how and why the MSM and Dems are attempting to use QAnon to smear all conservatives as crazy.

    Quote, “Just two types of marine cyanobacteria are adding up to 500 times more hydrocarbons to the ocean per year than the sum of all other types of petroleum inputs to the ocean, including natural oil seeps, oil spills, fuel dumping and run-off from land,” said Earth scientist Connor Love from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). Unquote.
    So the hydrocarbon input from humankind is less than 1 part in 500 or if my school maths hold up, less than 0.2%. So exactly what were the miserable whining greens ( Hi Bob) on about on their caravan to failure regarding the Qld coal mines in the last state election?.

    So the Queensland Police are taking a leaf out of the VicPol harassment book, this cowardly act by the Queensland cop is beyond shocking and an utter disgrace perpetrated upon an innocent member of the public. You will see the parallels of a woman with a child being bullied by this mongrel cop, who in my opinion, should be sacked.

    So, where is Puzzleduck? No doubt cheering on this bastard.

      PP trusts these particular NSW cops are subject to the full force of the law via the courts and are each held personally responsible, removed permanently from the police force whilst having to cough up significant $$ from their own personal bank accounts in fines and compensation to these two innocent people lawfully going about their daily business.

      Those of us that lived in Africa know only too well how bad the Fabian Society has been for white skinned “colonialists” there, from the 1950s onwards, so their hostility to Australian Whites is par for the course.

      Fenner Brockway, Barbara Castle, John Stonehouse to name a few all trouble making, self righteous bastards .

      They had their ‘villains’ who were out to destroy our way of life in a real way, I remember some of them all trouble makers from the UK fanning the flames of African Nationalism leading to a breakdown of Law and Order. Just trouble makers, cowards too, would flee back to the UK for safety when things got out of hand. I remember a couple of them got into an argument in a pub in Salisbury, Rhodesia, and experienced cold Castle Lager poured over their heads ( waste of good beer, actually).

      John Stonehouse became a wanted fugitive and fled the UK and was located hiding here in Melbourne.

  • luk1955 09/02/2021, 4:52 pm

    Here is some more info about the MUPpet attempt to privatize Australia Post and drive the outlets into bankruptcy in order to “privatize” the service. From the Citizens”s Party.

    Watch ‘The Truth about Christine Holgate: She Saved Australia Post’

    Why would the Labor Party and Liberal Party team up to drive out an undeniably successful CEO of Australia Post, whose brilliant management saved an indispensable national service? This is what all Australians—who own this public asset—will demand to know when they watch the stunning new Citizens Insight interview with Licensed Post Office Group Executive Director Angela Cramp, “The Truth about Christine Holgate—She Saved Australia Post”. When Australians see this scandal through the licensed post office operators’ eyes, the penny will drop that it has nothing to do with Cartier watches, and that there are clearly backroom political agendas at play, which are emblematic of everything everyday people hate about politics, and which must be exposed and stopped.

    Click here to watch: “The Truth about Christine Holgate—She Saved Australia Post”.

    The Licensed Post Office Group represents 2,900 post offices that are private small businesses operating as agencies for Australia Post. They are spread out all over Australia, especially in rural and regional communities, where they are often the sole supplier of face-to-face government and banking services, as well as postal services. The government of Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke established the licensed post office model, as a way to maintain a post office network at lower cost to the government; collectively, the 2,900 licensed post office operators have invested about $3 billion of their own capital into these businesses that are the backbone of Australia’s postal network.

    Angela Cramp describes in vivid terms what LPOs endured in the decades before Christine Holgate became CEO, including:

    No increase in the basic postage rate, which determined the income for LPOs, for more than a decade despite skyrocketing costs of living, which drove LPOs into bankruptcy;
    No payments to LPOs when parcels started booming with the advent of online shopping, as LPO payments were linked to letters, not parcels;
    No support from successive governments, or Australia Post management, except ridiculous suggestions such as that LPO operators could start other businesses to subsidise their LPO business (!);
    Australia Post management, who were paid much more than Christine Holgate would be, cannibalising Australia Post by selling assets, such as Sydney’s iconic General Post Office, and preparing for privatisation;
    Having to bear the cost of supplying banking services to communities abandoned by the banks, amounting to at least $50 million a year, most of which came out of LPOs’ pockets.

    This was the state of Australia Post when Christine Holgate took over as CEO in 2017, on a base salary of less than $2 million a year compared with her predecessor who was on almost $5 million base salary and had taken an $11 million payout when he left. (Christine Holgate moved to Australia Post from Blackmores, where she had been a spectacularly successful CEO on $8 million per year.)

    “There is nothing like Christine Holgate”, Angela Cramp said to Citizens Insight. “Her leadership, her quality, her passion—it made a difference to Australia Post.”

    Angela Cramp describes how Christine Holgate came into Australia Post with an intention to solve problems. Holgate embraced the whole organisation, including the LPOs, and consulted earnestly with the LPOs on their views of what problems needed to be addressed. The LPOs raised the cost of providing banking services, but Holgate had already done her due diligence by visiting successful post offices around the world, where she saw that properly compensated banking services could subsidise postal services. The new CEO then led an executive team in negotiating a visionary deal with the private banks, in which all the big banks except ANZ each paid $25 million per year, and around 65 smaller financial institutions collectively paid $25 million per year, for Australia Post to continue to serve their customers; Holgate also ensured the LPOs shared the revenue, literally saving their businesses. It was for this deal that she rewarded the four main executives, who had worked night, weekends and holidays finalising negotiations with 70 separate financial institutions, with a $5,000 Cartier watch each.

    Did they deserve the reward?

    “Absolutely!”, Angela Cramp insists. “Every licensee thinks they deserved a lot more. … It wasn’t their job to do this—this was not part of their contract or their KPIs [key performance indicators]. Nobody said this could be done. Everybody said the banks will not agree to this, give it up, forget it; Christine Holgate and this team were determined to make it happen because she had committed to it, and she did it.

    “It is pretty much why we are so passionate about hanging on to her, for grim death, because we do believe it is grim death without her, without the quality that she brings to this position.”

    It is also the deal for which Christine Holgate was ambushed in Parliament two years later. Angela Cramp reveals that the 22 October attack came just before Australia Post was due to start negotiations with the banks on renewing the deals, which except for CBA’s expire in September this year. As a result of the government forcing Holgate to stand aside, those negotiations still have not started, leaving the LPOs fearing they could lose the deal and return to the bad old days of imminent bankruptcy.

    And this goes to the heart of the matter: why did both Labor and the Liberals destroy the undeniably successful CEO of a $8 billion government business enterprise over $20,000? The only reason not to want Australia Post to be successful is if they are contriving an excuse to privatise it. And the only reason to attack the deal that saved the business, and sabotage its renewal, is to do the bidding of the lobby that owns whole chunks of the Liberal and Labor parties—the private banks.

    The Australian people must get involved. Australia Post is our asset, and this scandal exposes the major parties as more concerned with their backroom agendas than the diligent management of public services, which Christine Holgate delivered. All Australians should join with the stakeholders who know best, the LPOs, and demand the government reinstate Christine Holgate as CEO of Australia Post.

    What you can do

    The government has leaked through the Australian Financial Review that despite this fiasco over $20,000 having cost $100,000 of “taxpayers’ money” for a lawyers’ report that cleared Christine Holgate of any actual wrongdoing, and $350,000 for an executive headhunter to find a replacement CEO, the board is close to appointing a replacement CEO from within Australia Post. They don’t care about “taxpayers’ money”—this was a political hit. Do not let them get away with it. This week, call the two shareholder ministers in Australia Post and demand they stop the rush to replace her, and instead reinstate Christine Holgate as CEO.

    Sen. Simon Birmingham (Finance Minister)
    Canberra Office: (02) 6277 7400 (if you get the answering machine, leave a message)
    If you can’t get through, call his Adelaide number: (08) 8354 1644

    Paul Fletcher MP (Communications Minister)
    Canberra Office: (02) 6277 7480 (if you get the answering machine, leave a message)
    If you can’t get through call his Sydney number: (02) 9465 3950

    This shows how corrupt and thieving our government is toward the rural and regional areas. Bankrupting our taxpayer funded orgs, privatising them for pennies on the dollar to their favored companies, and running the little guys who have invested their money into AP and sending them into bankruptcy.

    As reported by the CDC … here are the total number of US deaths by year and the change from the previous year

    > Year 2017 2,818,503 Americans died

    > Year 2018: 2,839,205 deaths (20,702 more than the previous year 2017)

    > Year 2019: 2,855,000 deaths (16,300 more than the previous year 2018)

    > Year of the pandemic …2020..,.there were 2,913,144 deaths (57,641 more than the previous year 2019)

    Let this sink in for a minute. There were zero deaths from Covid-19 reported during 2018 and 2019… and the jump from 2019 to 2020 was only 57,641?

    But, We have been told COVID is responsible for 440,000 + deaths in the USA.

    Those are official figures from the USA and ours are much the same percentage wise but all concerned don’t ever allow the facts to get in the way of their narrative since most of the politicians, the doctors who advise them, and the media are the equivalent of loud mouthed stand over merchants and bullshit artists who ride roughshod over us. When a politician states that the medical profession advises this, that, or the other, and “I am following that advice,” that politician is just covering his backside for he/she can blame the medico when things go awry. The best advice for an unelected medico is “cobbler, stick to your last” for a high IQ and a good memory don’t necessarily guarantee common sense. We ordinary folk are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea for the politicians are going to use this mild virus depending on how one looks at it to use it as a bludgeon to lock the place down at will for like the ‘flu and the common cold, this virus is here to stay and some of us are going to catch it and recover, some of us oldies with other ailments are going to catch it and die, it’s called life.

  • Aktosplatz 12/02/2021, 9:52 am


    I think I need to report this to you all, about someone in the UK who has Covid 19, this is how it started:-

    “Good evening family, friends and folks,

    I would not normally wish to bother you so early in the New Year but thought you might like to know what has been going on here of late. Before I go any further, I know that J*** and H*** (daughters) have been passing messages around so my apologies if I tell you something you’ve already heard.

    Not long after I came out of hospital just before Christmas both A*** and I developed a dry cough, and something similar to catarrh. We sought advice from the Covid Test Team, but they felt we didn’t have Covid and it was something seasonal. Anyway, we struggled on, observing all the guidelines and restrictions, and ably supported by J*** who did our shopping. However, A*** became increasingly listless and seemed content to sleep all day in her armchair. This was just about tolerable until yesterday, when she had a pretty nasty turn which led us to call the Doctor. Two nurses rolled up pretty quickly, she had a high temperature and as they reckoned she was probably Covid positive an ambulance was called, which duly whisked her away to Queen Alexandra Hospital. Apparently the ambulance queue was so long that many patients were being examined and treated in their ambulances!

    After several ‘phone calls today it has been confirmed that A*** has got Covid, and she is under full management for this which includes regular blood samples being taken, her being on oxygen and J*** and I having to self-isolate. Late this afternoon she was moved to the Respiratory High Care Unit, as there are indications that she may also have managed to pick up pneumonia.

    As a result of A*** positive test J***arranged for me to have another test this afternoon, the results of which are awaited. In the meantime I’ve had to cancel my Endoscopy booked for this Saturday, as well as the pre-procedure Covid test, and both should go ahead later this month.. ”
    This happened early January, today, this lady (A***) is in Southampton Hospital with a tube in the side of her neck, and a ventilator supplied with oxygen. I have a lot of detail which I won’t post, but trust me, she has nearly died once or twice and she is not out of the woods yet. Her husband is not similarly affected although he tested positive too.

    It’s a mystery, but don’t dismiss it as a mild flu or whatever. I used to think like that but not now.

    I think our relative success here in Australia compared to the UK is about density of population, but it’s real enough, folks. It brings it home to you when you know someone.

    • Pensioner Pete 12/02/2021, 10:17 am

      Akto: I have no doubts the Covid (Chinese Wuhan Virus) is real, however, the situation regarding early treatment by known and proven medications being banned is criminal and in my opinion, a ‘crime against humanity’, thus the State Premiers who banned these medications should be taken to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, for prosecution and imprisonment upon being found guilty as they surely are.

      • Aktosplatz 12/02/2021, 10:32 am

        Thanks for that Pete, I thoroughly agree with you that the hydroxychloroquinone anti malarial treatment would work.

        While a bit OT, I have had malaria twice as a youngster it worked wonders (with hot toddies!)

        No worries you guys are absolutely right about what you, Craig Kelly, and the rest have been saying. It’s not easy to resist the feeling that this lady in question would have been better off taking HCQ

        And I always refer to it as the Wuhan virus, I personally think it came out of their labs there and was deliberate.

    • John 13/02/2021, 7:55 am

      Quote, “I think our relative success here in Australia compared to the UK is about density of population”
      I found it interesting that the UK has a population of some 60 million but the area of the mainland UK is only about 60% of Victoria,s area.
      No doubt pop density is a very large component of the toll.

    Saw this on YT and just had to pass it along:
    A devout Muslim entered a black cab in London. He curtly asked the cabbie to turn off his radio, because as decreed by his religious teaching, he did not listen to music, because in the time of the prophet, there was no music, especially Western music, which is the music of the infidel…

    The Cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the cab and opened his passenger’s door. The Arab Muslim asked him “what are you doing?”. The cabbie answered, “In the time of the prophet, there were no taxis, so piss off and wait for a camel”…

    Read somewhere that if Paris population density was applied to the World’s population it would be possible to fit them all in to Tassie and Victoria and have room left over. One supposes that water supplies etc. weren’t taken into account. If you spend over three and a half years of yr life 24/7 off the ground and look down on say China or Russia, there is a bloody lot of empty space minus people down there. So much for us destroying the environment. So much for the end is nigh BS!

    • Cliff 15/02/2021, 2:50 pm

      Bots, around 20 years ago, when I lived in the Middle East, a friend there in the banking game told me that around 30% of US $100.00 bills in circulation there were counterfeit, and the Americans were quite aware of this, but didn’t dare to declare them as fake because to do so would cause a loss of confidence by the locals in the USD. (The same fellow said that the high standard of the majority of the fake notes meant that they could only have been produced by printing presses available only to State players – (i.e., governments).

      Apparently, the two main offenders were Iran and North Korea.

      The USD as the benchmark international currency is by no means as rock solid as some might think. Its main (and some say, its only) basis for remaining so is that it is the currency used for the sale of oil on the international market. Some say that it was Iraq’s threat to remove itself from the USD-based oil trade and adopt a non-USD currency for that exchange that was the real (and in fact only) reason the US decided to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

      • Botswana+O'Hooligan 16/02/2021, 8:48 am

        Cliff the same was true in Russia when I lived there for North Korea was/ is the culprit and it was near impossible for an ordinary person and indeed most money exchange people to tell the difference so a blanket ban was placed on all USD 100 bills unless they were brand new and crisp. Our allowance was USD $1000 a month for each three months stint payable in advance in Australia. I always ordered the 3K from my bank in Australia in unused USD bills and sometimes it took a week or so for them to get that amount. Back then after perestroika it cost about USD$ 40 a week to live for two of us, tucker, grog, good quality pipe tobacco, and the high schoolteacher lady who cleaned our apartment was on $45 a month, a doctor on about $95, and engineers and airline pilots about $300 a month. Then the Yanks came and started paying their drivers $500 a month and the joint went downhill from there as it always does when the Yanks get involved.

    Our notes are probably the hardest in the world to fake. Only a government agency would have the resources to produce the fakes.

    This may be another reason for the attempt to limit the use of cash, although the government would never admit it. Heaven forbid we learn what the yellow peril is up to, it might lead to wacism.

    Tony Thomas, a regular hard-hitting contributor at Quadrant online, has given us a totally must-read gem. I promise you will be gobsmacked. Totally classic.


    The title is a bit of a misnomer, and Tony’s own commentary at the start of the piece is nothing too amazing. But the transcript of the encounter between journalist Avi Yemini (a Dan Andrews nemesis) and Daniels’ state security detail is just — as any teen girl would say — OMG!!!

    Avi is standing his ground in the Vic parliament grounds, with an official press pass, as Andrews is about to give his press conference. Daniels’s PSO — a kind of personal police force — tells Avi to buzz off. What ensues makes sense of the title of the piece. The PSO have been told by Daniels’s Personal Assistant that he doesn’t want Avi there (asking hard-nosed questions). So the PSO and the Police pile on Avi, eventually expelling him, after making up a series of bogus, pulled-from-ass, inaccurate claims — totally dismissing freedom of the press — hence the comparison to China.

    Skip the blurb at the start of the article if you must, but the transcript at the end (Avi recorded the whole transaction) is a total must-read. What a f..ing classic!
