Socialism at work: people never learn

Posted by – 3 February, 2015

It is like some people are unaware that a certain side lost the Cold War.

Venezuela’s ‘socialist paradise’ turns into a nightmare: medical shortages claim lives as oil price collapses…..In a shopping centre in the Sabana Grande district last week, women queued outside a pharmacy for nearly two hours to buy two four-roll packs of toilet paper. In what has become the ultimate indignity for the Venezuelan public – and a huge embarrassment for the regime – shortages of toilet paper mean it is now strictly rationed….real inflation now running at nearly 100 per cent, according to Robert Bottome of the VenEconomia think-tank…McDonald’s has no potato fries to serve because the company’s supplier cannot find the money to import real potatoes, so instead it serves a cardboard tasting substitute made from yucca….In a branch of the Farmatodo pharmacy, one entire wall is stocked just with toothpaste and mouthwash and another with bottles of Pepsi, following a government directive ordering stores to fill the shelves with anything to give the appearance of plenty. Curiously, for all the toothpaste on display, there are no toothbrushes….“There are 600 to 700 people on the cardiac waiting list,” said a doctor, who detailed shortages of everything from gauzes to sample tubes. “If they don’t receive the surgeries they need, more of them will die.”

…and then there is Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Bill Shorten’s Australia.

Liberal MP Dennis Jensen implodes on 2GB

Posted by – 3 February, 2015

The Liberals are tearing each other apart on radio. Incredible. Listening to Dennis Jensen’s train wreck interview with Andrew Bolt, as Jensen tries to incoherently explain why he has publicly called for Abbott to resign as PM. If this continues then the Deputy PM Warren Truss may as well take over as PM – seriously.

Alan Jones is now beyond the pale

Posted by – 2 February, 2015

As you may be aware, Alan Jones has been running his own inner-city like jihad against coal seam gas for some time now. Broadcasting into QLD during the recent election to get people to vote for the ALP, Jones came out with a litany of misinformation and bare based li.s – mostly about CSG. Of course he never lets facts get in the way of a good left-wing rant to protect his mates in the horse breeding racing industry. A QLD election ‘scandal’ involving AGL CSG operations is a case in point. However the reality now appears far more mundane.

After receiving the water monitoring results, AGL assessed whether the BTEX concentrations could harm the environment or affect human health, and concluded that no such harm arose. AGL then sought expert advice which confirmed its assessment that the BTEX concentrations found did not harm the environment or affect human health. “AGL then proceeded to verify the water sampling procedures including any potential contamination of the samples, review historical data, conduct site inspections, check water monitoring points and also ensure the integrity of our flow back water management system. “Following these review processes, in the interests of acting prudently and because of the community’s concern about BTEX, AGL then determined a full review of the sampling results was needed and voluntarily suspended operations. The relevant authorities – Environment Protection Authority, Office of Coal Seam Gas and the NSW Office of Water – were informed shortly after that decision was made.”

Just wondering where are all the conservative journalists, or at least those wise to the global warming scam, that are willing to take Jones on? The only reason Jones is supportive of the Federal coalition is because of his personal loyalty to Tony Abbott – beyond that it is not always clear that his loyalties lie on the right side of politics.

Jones on the radio this morning pushing marijuana and gloating about getting the QLD LNP government voted out of office. Jones is an old style inner city leftie who just happens to have a personal loyalty to Tony Abbott. That’s it.

LabGreen want amnesty for 30,000 illegal immigrants

Posted by – 3 December, 2014

LabGreen  want 30,000 illegal immigrants (asylum seekers) to be given permanent residency, which would in essence be a de facto path way to Australian citizenship.

We need a double dissolution election that we can win

A small 6 minute radio grab is all the evidence one needs to know why Jacqui Lambie has no business being in the Senate. She has five more years.

Another movie to add to the list. It turns out Interstellar is great anti-climate change hysteria movie.

CSG takes on 2GB

Posted by – 13 November, 2014

As you may be aware, 2GB has basically been running a campaign of miss-information about coal seam gas (CSG) for a few years now. Primarily driven by Alan Jones, easily influenced 2GB personality Chris Smith has also jumped on the anti-CSG campaign. Today Andrew Bolt alluded to the irrational fear of CSG on Chris Smith’s programme, and it was obvious that Smith felt uncomfortable with what Bolt was saying and the interview promptly ended. Now Ross Greenwood has invited Santos on to his programme to outline CSG operations in NSW. Alan Jones basically refuses to speak to pro-CSG advocates because they ‘keep telling lies’, or something like that. This will being to isolate Alan Jones from within 2GB on CSG and hopefully end the media campaign against CSG in NSW.

Where did the money go?

Another Ruddllard scandal, this time about Australia’s bid for the soccer world cup. From Fifa’s ‘ethics’ committee.

Australia also made efforts to woo Warner and Oceania chief Reynald Temarii, including providing money for development projects. In relation to Warner, the report states it “identified certain payments from the Football Federation of Australia (Ffa) to Concacaf which… appear to have been co-mingled, at least in part, with personal funds of the then Concacaf president [Warner] who at the time also was a Fifa executive committee member.”

Incredibly Fifa has cleared Qatar of any wrong doing, which probably shows how corrupt Fifa is itself.

Nova Peris is why we need recall elections

Posted by – 30 October, 2014

You may be aware of a series of racy and racist emails sent by Federal Senator Nova Peris when she was a public servant. What is being called a sex-for-taxes scandal basically involves Peris organising a trip to Australia at tax payers expense for a former athlete she clearly had a conflict of interest as a result of an extra martial affair they were carrying on. If there was a Federal equivalent of ICAC, Peris would be referred to it for investigation. In the emails Peris clearly lobbied her colleagues to approve the trip along with top up payments for the former athlete. Involving one self in a procurement or grant process when one clearly has a conflict of interest with the intended recipient is grounds for dismissal in the public service. Peris though is part of a nu-aristocracy, people that by virtue of either their race, gender, sexual preference, etc.. are able to live off others and are above the law and criticism. So Peris is unlikely to be brought to justice. From Quadrant magazine.

When there’s a conflict of interest between you and the thing you’re trying to get money for – in this case, from grants bodies set up to benefit disadvantaged Aboriginal people – then you declare it to your employer and step aside. A concept that basic is beyond dispute
