    DEADLY DECISIONS

    On Sun 1 Nov 8:00pm – 9:00pm

    Peta Credlin investigates the botched COVID-19 quarantine operation that led to the deaths of 800 people.

    SKY NEWS – WIN

  • PW 30/10/2020, 6:36 pm

    Oh dear. I cannot believe how the left can turn the English language upside down.
    KRudd (as in brown crust in under daks) claims the Murdoch press “chills free speech”.
    Odd the people choose to pay for “sanitised free speech”.
    The guy needs to booked into a nursing home.

    PS
    Hope they find those log books from the Lolita Express!

    qld election result:
    Most of us knew what the outcome would be and as I predicted the dictator’s road to power formula, “Problem-Reaction-Solution” has been in play.
    NOW the stupid will reap their reward. The answer to the ever increasing urgent requests from charities to help these desperadoes, is now made easy.
    ” I hear your cry but I have no tears for these deadbeats who now implore our help. Voted for their predicament. Now they can redirect their plea to their beloved ANASTASIA’s endless bankcard of debt and bankruptcy. She has no further need for you, now you pay the price. you see other peoples money has already run dry!
    So don’t waste a phone call.

      PP did his dough good and proper on this one, the One Nation vote collapsed, the LNP will have David Crisafulli as leader within a short time, areas outside the SE corner will continue to be ignored for infrastructure and everything else a government is supposed to deliver, and for us in the rural sector of Western Queensland, no change as we have been ignored by Labor for decades.

      All very sad, however, out here, we will get on with things as usual.

      The only ‘positive’ from this was Triad got the boot, however this ‘positive’ is offset by a Green gaining the seat from Triad, so no net gain in reality.

        She bought the election by stacking the public service PP and so we are leading the charge towards another Venezuela.

      • Pensioner Pete 01/11/2020, 8:47 am

        Bots: Agreed, stacking the public serpents was a big factor, the main factor was fear, fear introduced by Puzzleduck to the masses, just like Hitler did with the Germans in creating a fear of the Jews. It worked well then, and the same principle of ffear applied in Queensland by Puzzleduck worked very well, as confirmed this morning.

    Earth CANNOT warm at 2C per century in the current era. The energy balance on Earth is tightly controlled. Sea surface cannot get colder than 271.3K. It becomes solid ice at lower temperates and insulates to reduce heat loss. Sea surface cannot exceed 32C. Once TPW exceeds 38mm the atmosphere goes into blockout mode and rejects almost all incoming insolation. The temperature rises asymptotically to 32C; can never exceed that temperature.

    There is no “greenhouse effect”.

    Any measured warming over the past century, apart from recovery after volcanos, is indication of measurement error. Earth’s climate is basically stuck where it is for the next thousands years or so barring volcanos or large asteroid.

    I see Freckles has quit as LNP leader in Qld. citing family reasons.
    Isn’t it amazing as to how failed politicians all of a sudden have a rush of “care for their families?”

    They can’t even tell the truth about quitting – she’s quitting because she’s bloody useless, something we on the outer have known all along. This was proved by her election results.

    If she had won she wouldn’t have even mentioned her family.

    • Pensioner Pete 03/11/2020, 6:19 am

      Quite so Atko.

      Freckles falls on her sword, however, what about those in the upper echelon of the party who pull the strings? Are they going to continue the trend of resigning as those others have done immediately prior to the election? Probably not? Thought so.

  • Cliff 03/11/2020, 5:35 am

    Akto, it would have been an interesting conversation to overhear, and, I suspect, a very short one.

    I mean that conversation between Ms Freckleton and her decimated Party’s power brokers after she announced she was staying on as leader.

    What is it with the conservative political parties in Australia and their apparent fixation with sticking with hopeless leaders when Blind Freddie can see that leader is leading that Party to certain defeat?

    Is there some unwritten agreement that everyone gets his – and her – turn?

  • Soroako 03/11/2020, 5:02 pm

    A couple of hours ago I decided to hang my garage TV set up on a wall bracket and after the usual struggle and cursing was quite pleased with the result. I then cleaned the screen and turned on Channel 83 only to be repulsed by the vision and ranting of soft cock extraordinaire the insufferable Troy Bramston.

    He really is a slimy lying little angst filled twerp of a man. Parroting far left bull dust about Trump including repeating slurs which had been debunked months ago.

    Bramston doesn’t blame Sco-Mo for the 800+ Covid-19 deaths in Victoria as he accepts that the states had full responsibility & management of the health system – as agreed when they signed up to the Federation. He must know that the Australian Federation was modeled on the USA system and that their state governments are responsible for the health and safety of their citizens – but still he claims Trump is responsible for over 200,000+ deaths.

    I can’t understand why he detests Trump so much. He gets very animated and emotional about it and you can sense that he is being sincere – he really is repulsed by Trump to the extent that he cannot be rational about him.

    His demeanor when discussing Trump reminds me of many of the harridans [and their emasculated co-presenters] at the ABC behaving in a similar irrational manner during the Abbott years. The fear and loathing of strong conservative leaders comes to the fore whenever Trump & Abbott are mentioned.

    Note I am not comparing Trump and Abbott. Abbott was an experienced politician when he made a lot of promises in 2013 but didn’t deliver. Trump with no political experience delivered on his promises.

    But, getting back to my topic. Troy Branston is one of the most annoying twats to appear on my TV screen. He ranks right up there with Nicholas Reece & Kristina Keneally. They all share the same ability i.e. stare at the camera and talk trash whilst adopting a smirking expression which implies that they think any viewer who disagrees with their edicts must be an idiot.

    My garage TV is in the danger zone – too many hammers and screwdrivers at hand and within easy throwing distance. Should the un-thinkable happen and the Democrats pull off the biggest heist of a free and powerful democracy in our lifetime then I should probably cut the power cord for the safety of the TV and my sanity.

    • Pensioner Pete 04/11/2020, 9:26 am

      Soroako, I know where you are coming from, I cut off all free to air TV at home four years ago and instead, fitted a PC to the TV and stream what I choose to watch, advert free. For news, the internet is a gold mine if using alternate sites such as MM and many others of similar bent.

    So Krudd and Turncoat believes Australia should get involved if Trump disputes his being voted out.

  • Soroako 04/11/2020, 3:20 pm

    I’m trying to keep abreast of the race on CNN, Fox & Sky News and what a pain it is to see all the “pretty people” hogging camera time whilst spitting out dribble, or playing “what could happen” on their fancy electronic maps.

    Sky is offering the most basic coverage but puts up votes counted and margin % without including the total % of votes counted so it is as useful as tits on a bull.

    Fox has the insufferable Chris Wallace smirking and trying to act as HE is the font of all wisdom.

    CNN is just boring as batsh*t but it will liven up when the gay icon & white hating Don Lemon comes on with his supercilious smarmy partner the equally obnoxiousness Chris Cuomo to carry on with their usual anti Trump bile.

    At 3:15 ESDT it is still a tight race with Biden seemingly a good chance of warming up the big chair in the Oval Office for Kamala but I haven’t written off Donald yet.

    • Soroako 04/11/2020, 7:17 pm

      Well, that was more frustrating than entertaining. I was hoping for a repeat of 2016 when the MSM went ape shit over Trump beating Killary!

      [I still go back and view some of the wild predictions made by the Hollywood “faux” elite and their mates at MSNB, CNN etc.]

      But – fingers crossed – it looks like Trump will win by a whisker! If he does it will be a phenomenal result – he was up against the Democrats, Wall Street, Big Corporations, Twitter, Facebook, Google and 95% of the so called free press. Not to mention Hollywood and the music industry.

      Bloomberg supposedly spent over $300M on his own attempt to win the Democratic nomination and then another $100M to help Biden in his attempt to beat Trump. I reckon our own Clive Palmer got a better return on his investment in Australian politics.

  • PW 04/11/2020, 7:59 pm

    God forbid if Trump loses.
    One thing I’d like to see and have Trump admit to the Democrats is he has learned from them.
    During Biden’s inauguration, declare he will be impeached the following week.

  • Soroako 05/11/2020, 10:46 am

    Well the chances of Trump winning are now minuscule – so much so that the only chance he has of winning a second term is if he goes up against the incumbent President Kamala Harris in 2024.

    Thanks for the ride Donald J Trump – you will be missed.

    The fall of Donald Trump will not auger well for Australia. For years we have been led by weak and gutless leaders who would rather not make a decision than risk offending the left and the media.

    We often hear the cry “grow some balls will ya!” when lamenting our inept government response to the battle being waged against us by the left. It is not going to happen now – Morrison and his shriveled testicle mates will end up as a spent force just like their state counter-parts.

    With Biden/Harris in the White House we can expect that our politicians will “bend the knee” and shift their ideology further to the left rather than run the risk of offending the vocal few.

    With Trump defeated our personal freedoms are now under threat. Twitter, Facebook and Google will no longer fear being broken down as they have purchased sufficient influence to guide government policies.

    Consider how quickly Twitter shut down or censor right wing posters, how Police monitor Facebook for people urging defiance of government dictates, how corruption of people like Joe Biden is suppressed and how conspiracy’s such as the “Russia” hoax can be pushed with the aid of corrupt government bodies.

    Left wing governments around the world embrace open borders, positive equal opportunity, they bestow the right of Islamic followers to preach hate and punish others who defend Christianity. They also push many agendas such as gender diversity, the LQGBT alphabet, the suppression of people who challenge the global warming – climate alarm-ism hoax, and support the public outing and humiliation of those who realise the whole kit and caboodle is a sham. Twitter, Facebook & Google support all of these twisted agendas – because it enriches them!

    However I don’t care anymore. I’ve had a good bloody run for the past 70 years never being afraid to stand up for what I believe in and always been ready to not only argue my case but to listen / argue / tolerate the views of others without ever feeling the need to suppress them or burn the place down.

    Once again – thank you Donald J Trump – the last 4 years have been a hell of a ride.

  • Albert 20/11/2020, 3:33 pm

    Upon the release of the Brereton report into the activities of our SAS in Afghanistan I was so angry at the tone of such a witch-hunt that had more holes than a block of Swiss cheese. I was disgusted by the string of useless politicians including Scott Morrison, none of whom ever donned the uniform, who appeared for their twenty seconds in the limelight on TV, to share their lack of knowledge of military matters in an effort to turn the general public against those who have not yet been given a chance to defende themselves in a properly convened court of justice.
    I will not for one moment condone the actions of those involved if they are found guilty but I will not condemn them especially on the say so of Brereton, Campbell or Scott Morrison who have obviously found them guilty before any trial.
    The suggestion that the service medals of all those who served in Afghanistan be taken from them because of the as yet unproven actions of a few is a bloody disgrace.
    The TV appearance of Angus Campbell to sprout his sanctimonious insult to the intelligence of the average Australian really was laughable in light of what he failed to say.
    Campbell spoke about morals and morality. That prompted a question in my mind as to what exactly is righteous and morally superior about killing anyone whether it is in tune with the so-called ‘Rules of Engagement’ or not. War is war and that means lots of killing but that doesn’t make you morally superior to do so on the grounds of a set of rules that have little relevance in such a conflict.
    Campbell, and I believe, Brereton failed miserably by not mentioning the fact that Afghanistan wasn’t a war but a fight against guerrilla forces who didn’t give a tuppeny stuff about his Rules 0f Engagement. It was a conflict against and non-uniformed enemy who couldn’t be easily recognised. It was a war where the farmer who was talking to a SAS member a minute before shoots him in the back when he turns to go.
    Campbell apologised to the Afghans for the supposed murder of their people and suggested that the families of those supposedly murdered should be paid compensation but, he failed to ask for an apology and compensation from Afghanistan for those of our SAS who were murdered by Afghans who were supposed to be on their side. We should not forget that three of our soldiers were shot dead while playing cards at their base camp by a rogue member of the Afghan Army. I bet that didn’t get a mention in Brereton’s scribblings.
    The condemning of the supposed killing of unarmed civilians by our armed forces is steeped in hypocrisy as people like Campbell, Brereton and high rankers in the ADF conveniently forget or dismiss the action of the Allies during WWII. Let us recall how the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by Allied forces killed some 228,000 innocent civilians and injured tens of thousands more. Then of course there were the bombing raids upon Germany and other atrocities that killed thousands of civilians. That appears to be quite justified in the minds of the current bunch of hypocritical witch hunters.
    Now, what has Brereton, Campbell, the ADF high command, and the PM and government of the time going to do about all those who suffered PTSD and or suicided as a result of their multiple deployments during the Afghan shamozzel that Australia should never have been involved in.

    • Aktosplatz 21/11/2020, 9:12 am

      I quite agree, Albert. Conventional War involved both sides wearing recognisable uniforms and using weapons of differing make and style ( all lethal nevertheless).

      The wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places of conflict from the ’80s onward have been characterised by the absence of such visible differences. The ‘enemy’ in Afghanistan wears our clothes, eats our food, socialises with our kind, but mentally have plans to kill us.

      This mindset is exactly that of those who murder in our streets by driving cars into people, or shoot and stab innocent people. And that’s the point because abandoning far away places of conflict doesn’t solve the problem anymore because terrorists come here and are here now.

      I agree that the armchair warriors should keep out of it – any enquiry should be carried out by service people who have actually served in the front line in any of the three services.

  • Albrt 21/11/2020, 1:51 pm

    Our Waffler-in-Chief Morrison just stated on teevs that those accused over the Afghan matter must be afforded a presumption of innocence and he and the government and the ADF were working hard to that end. What an unmitigated lie; everyone involved, from the top down, with their deliberate inferences have made damned sure that a guilty label has been stuck upon each and every soldier alleged to have committed those atrocities. They have been found guilty by all and sundry without the opportunity to tell their version of events or being tried in a fit and proper manner.
    Morrison said that a process of justice was set in place. Of course that was another load of bullshit considering that those at the top have made damned sure by releasing the Brereton report that the accused are guilty in the minds of the general public.
    The dishonest and shoddy way in which those at the top have handled and are handling this matter reeks of pure and deliberate bastardry.

    Did any Queenslanders know this before the election? – It was kept very very quiet.

    Qld State government handed over a long-term lease of the island to Chinese-based company China Bloom Pty Ltd.
    Big trouble on island paradise
    It’s a little slice of island paradise nestled snugly off Queensland’s coast – a “forever” home for those who live there. But that all changed when the state government handed over a long-term lease of the island to a Chinese-based company, writes Peter Gleeson.

    Keswick Island. Picture: JewelZeeMORE IN news

    It’s a little slice of island paradise nestled snugly off Mackay, at the doorstep to the Great Barrier Reef. For the 40 or so locals who live on Keswick Island, 32km off Mackay, this is their “forever’’ home, a magical part of the world renowned for its aquatic and natural wonders.
    But that all changed in April last year when the Qld State government handed over a long-term lease of the island to Chinese-based company China Bloom Pty Ltd.
    The corporate structure now means that China Bloom has the head lease over the residential and commercial precincts and local residents are sub-lessees. After the Chinese company took over the 99-year lease about 18 months ago, things got very different for locals.

    The island sits off Mackay. Picture: Salty Summits
    Most of the drama centres on access to the island, the erection of illegal structures and facilities allegedly bypassing local government and state laws. According to locals, there have been attempts to block visitors, with some helicopter and all private and commercial aircraft access denied. Helicopter round trips cost $2400 – it’s cheaper to fly return to Paris.
    Locals say the public barge ramp is closed to residents and a non compliant, illegal boat ramp is being offered as an alternative.
    They have tried to get locals to fill out a form notifying the head lessee before intended travel to the island.
    They say a private aircraft owner was given 24 hours to remove his plane from the island after the takeover. He had flown in and out safely for the past decade. Signs have gone up barring the public from the island’s most popular beach.
    Whistleblowers say residents are denied the opportunity to use their homes as AirBnBs, small businesses are denied approval to operate, beaches are blocked, ¬visitors are harassed, and even long-term renters of Aboriginal ¬descent are being slugged with a $100,000 bond if they want to ¬purchase a home.

    Life on the island has changed in the past 18 months.
    The island paradise was loved by locals.
    A local action group, the ¬Keswick Island Progress Association (KIPA), has written to the Chinese owners of China Bloom, the state and local government and local federal MP George Christensen.
    The Chinese paid an undisclosed amount, believed to be multi-millions of dollars to the previous owner for the 99-year lease, which now has about 80 years to run. The Department of Natural Resources administers the lease.
    KIPA say beach excavation work has disturbed ¬turtle nesting areas and this has been reported to the Mackay Regional Council and the Department of Environment and Science.
    The Chinese company’s local development arm claims there are few turtles on the island but local residents recorded more than 20 nestings last year.
    Also contentious is a house built for one of its employees without Mackay council approval. The council is investigating whether a show cause notice for illegal building work should be issued.
    The Chinese say the island has just five permanent residents.
    At a recent residents’ meeting, the minutes showed 49 people attended, all landholders.
    The fear among locals is that the Chinese are “trying to push us out and develop the island exclusively for rich Chinese’’. Tourism activity since China Bloom took over has been reduced to zero. Locals say gates are locked, preventing access to national parks, in contravention of a recent court ruling.
    Mr Christensen said he was trying to get a meeting with the Chinese company’s local representatives.
    “It’s all about access,’’ said Mr Christensen.
    “The belief among locals is that they (the Chinese) want to drive down the price of properties, thereby making it inaccessible and then take it over completely.’’
    A representative for the Chinese company was contacted for comment.
    He said that most of the claims from residents were wrong and referred me to a PR company, which did not respond to questions by the time of publication.
    This should not be happening in Queensland. This island is owned by the Queensland government. It has assigned a 99-year lease to a company that ultimately on-sold it to a Chinese company.
    In the Palaszczuk government cabinet reshuffle, a new portfolio was announced and go-getter Meaghan Scanlon has become the Minister for the Environment and Great Barrier Reef.
    Her department has ultimate control over the property. She needs to intervene and sort this out for Queenslanders, who want their little slice of paradise protected.

      Palukzikzuk should never have agreed to this. Fool.

      This video shows what has happened in Fiji when vaku (Chinese — pronounce it as “wah-koo”) have been allowed to take over coastal resort areas. Video shows a little vaku encroaching on neighbours, erecting illegal structures, and ultimately using physical aggression against neighbouring landholders. All on the vid. Now these vermin have moved in here too.

    I look forward to Alan Jones’ or Paul Murray’s report on this.

    The locals on the mainland must immediately start fighting back. Bash all Chinese, sabotage vehicles, arson – whatever it takes. This CANNOT be allowed to continue.

    • Neville 23/11/2020, 8:47 pm

      From far away in WA, I’m still with Sir Peter on this.
      Fighting back looks to be now necessary – if only to wake up the pissant palacechoock party.

    Just reading in Breitbart news that health conditions in Central park New York have got so bad the rats have taken over the joint. Well I know 2 great big RATS that have digs overlooking Central Park namely The Turd and Krudd. Could not happen to a nicer pair of a…holes.

    Chinese officials from the Canberra based Chinese embassy have insulted and threatened us in our own country and suffered no consequences for their appalling conduct. They have damaged our export deals with their country and told us to pull our heads in or suffer the consequences. They have been allowed to gobble up vast agricultural and other property holdings including the Port of Darwin and I believe secured a 25 year holding on the Port of Melbourne. They have left us in no doubt that they will invade and control Australia when the time is right.
    After all of that what does our Waffler-in-Chief say:

    The over rated destruction of covid is becoming a plague of itself. Billions of dollars lost in the economy.
    Surely it would have been economically more responsible to have rounded up all those tested positive and placed them in luxury hotels and dine them on lobster than shut the nation down.

    Gawd, I usually tune in all channnels when I switch on for the evening to access “the guide”
    That god awful EhBC, The Drum.
    A program where hand wringing is the order of the day. Seems they, the EhBC freaks, put out alerts for victims, weidos and people that can’t work out normalities anymore.
    For Ita Butwose:
    If this was Cleo, you know it would have had to be killed off 5 years ago. Pull ya bloody finger out and save Australia from international embarrassment.

    So listen to the science says “the experts” on covid. Apparently they’re using the same lap tops that they’ve been doing climate change computer modeling.
    These computer models are so terrific we could get rid of politicians to govern us and start having faith in programmers.
    Now there’s a thought for the next election.
