18.01.21.  It always surprises or amuses what people will do to earn a crocked buck. The coppers have hooked five crooks accused of pinching—try to imagine—250 tonnes of salmon from a Sydney processing plant. Did they—five of them, smuggle 600kg of salmon per day out the gates? How could you stuff 120kg of salmon in your pockets, undies and lunch box and still be able to walk to your car in the employees parking lot? This brings new meaning to the term, “having a fishy breath!” God, how their vehicles must pong! Anyway, the salmon poachers have swum right into the police dragnet.
Five people have been charged over their alleged roles in the theft of up to 250 tonnes of salmon – valued at more than $4 million – from a processing plant in Sydney’s south-west. In December 2020, police were contacted by the executive of a salmon farming and processing company in relation to possible coordinated criminal conduct of employees. More

18.01.21.  “A leader of a powerful business group has called for a better alignment of the nat­ion’s economic and strategic interests, urging Australian companies to resist bullying from China and for diplomats to get “their hands dirty’’ by helping to find alternative export markets. Australian Industry Group chief executive Innes Willox’s call to drive export diversification and maintain Australian values received support from senior members of the security community. Writing in The Australian on Monday, Mr Willox said diplomats and business must unite to overcome trade obstacles.” More

18.01.21.  Stephen Hagan, the Aboriginal activist and social pest who uses race to ameliorate self importance in his own mind is not the sharpest knife in the drawer and his supreme stupidity to expunge the word “Coon” from Coon Cheese was always guaranteed to cause trouble. What the bloody dope ignored was the massive damage he would cause at a time when minister 3% (kangacape )Wyatt wants all Australians to follow him like lobotomised lemmings into eternal litigation with unimaginable cost and social division via his skin-colour based Constitutional “Voice” disaster. Hagen may well be shocked to discover that some of the “white ­supremacist hate mail” is coming from his fellow brothers and those nasty “whitey” blokes who are fed up with Hagen. Hagen once said that a walk down the supermarket dairy aisle hurt his feelings. Easy fix Mr Hagen—go bush and dig up some gourmet grubs and yams! Just imagine a Parliament trying to get anything done except quell the bitching and disagreement over everything?
The Aboriginal activist who instigated the name change for Coon cheese is seeking police pro­tection after receiving white ­supremacist hate mail over his victory. Stephen Hagan fought for 21years to change the brand that its Australian manufacturers said was named after Edward William Coon, who patented the ripening process for the original product. It was announced last week the cheese would become known as Cheer in Australia from July after a rebranding by owners ­Saputo Dairy Australia. More

18.01.21.  It surely will perplex many people considering the COVID-19 vaccine when they read of the growing numbers of deaths contributed to the various vaccines. Probably not too comforting is the apparent blitheness used by health officials when explaining believed vaccine related deaths. “The medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency, Steinar Madsen, said health authorities there were not alarmed at the 30 deaths that occurred among 40,000 ­people who have received the Pfizer jab.” Then there will be the forced  exclusion of people not vaccinated by all sorts of businesses etc? It’s a catch-22 sort of thing. Who’s next please!”
Australia’s medical regulator is seeking urgent answers from Norwegian health authorities after 30 frail, elderly people died after receiving the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19. The Therapeutic Goods Administration is considering whether warnings should be included in product information for doctors on the risks of providing the vaccine to very frail or terminally ill people.

18.01.21.  Heard the one about the world-famous actress and the X-rated dinner party? Greg Bearup is digging into the seamy history of Australia’s A-list with his scandalous chapter.
Heard the one about the world-famous actress and the X-rated dinner party? Greg Bearup is digging into the seamy history of Australia’s A-list with his scandalous chapter. She was fixated on John McCredden, not that dopey South African.
“What a pathetic man,” she thought of McCredden as she elegantly withdrew a cigarette from her mouth and blew a thin jet of smoke through pursed lips.
She’d not smoked for years but the events of the past few days, and last night, had rattled her.
She knew she’d find a packet hidden somewhere in a drawer behind the bar.
She felt that old, abusive comfort as she drew in deep and the smoke bit into her lungs. They all looked at her with righteous disgust but none dared tell her to put it out. More

18.01.21.  By Charles Purcell: Nikola Tesla was a pigeon lover. Yes, the man behind so many breakthroughs in electrical power – remember to thank him when you turn on that energy-thirsty air-conditioner – also loved pigeons so much he fell in love with a very special white one. “I loved that pigeon as a man loves a woman, and she loved me,” he once declared. I am reminded of Tesla and his love for pigeons upon hearing the news that a racing pigeon has survived an extraordinary 13,000-kilometre Pacific Ocean crossing from the United States to find a new home in Australia. The case inspired emotions around the world. Some praised “Joe” – named after Joe Biden – and desperately wanted it to live while the authorities seem to consider the bird a quarantine risk and planned to kill it. More

18.1.20. We are seeing the press all around the world, including here in Australia, being somewhat accommodating to China’s propaganda. In the past, the media that publish such propaganda in exchange for the advertising dollar may have been taken out and horsewhipped as traitors, pity that doesn’t happen now.
Sadly, as a result of reading the nonsense, many do believe that China and its diabolical leader are not all bad.
In its turn this leads to our Governments being worried about their support waning if they deal with the Dragon properly. This will one of the many challenges facing the robber President in the US as discussed by Gatestone Institute’s Con Coughlin interesting article: More

17.01.21.  Recalling the old adage, “Once bitten, twice shy” the FBI, the very same agency that said there were no ANTIFA operatives involved with the Capitol Hill demontration last week, has now warned of “extensive” planning for protests as the US braces for the possibility of nationwide violence around Joe Biden’s inauguration. Christopher Wray, director of the FBI, sought to assuage fears that law enforcement will be caught out as badly as when President Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol last week. Maybe the FBI is tired of being forced to look stupid by covering up with denials what the entire world can plainly see on television.
Mr Biden will be sworn in as US president on Wednesday (Thursday Australian time) in front of the Capitol, two weeks after far-right agitators laid siege to the complex, leading to six deaths and more than 100 injuries. More

17.01.21.  Left-wing Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador reportedly vowed to take on tech companies on Thursday in response to the bans that President Donald Trump has faced on social media. “I can tell you that at the first G20 meeting we have, I am going to make a proposal on this issue,” López Obrador said. “Yes, social media should not be used to incite violence and all that, but this cannot be used as a pretext to suspend freedom of expression. How can a company act as if it was all powerful, omnipotent, as a sort of Spanish Inquisition on what is expressed?” López Obrador asked. More
