    Neither of them is a Conservative.

    Plenty to say on the topic but it will take up 🕗 I don’t have right now …. so will have to wait for later this evening or tomorrow.

    Big question: Why did DeSantis drop out suddenly in the past few hours?
    There are some theories circulating, but I am waiting to get the facts.
    Will be disappointed if one of those theories turns out to be true.

    Zion Ron gone

    mh, I would like to see some evidence which indicates that RDS is a Zionist. In all the news sites and various other media platforms that I regularly read, I haven’t come across any references to show that.

    Yes, there are many of his supporters who are also pro-Israel, but it would require more than that for me to arrive at such a conclusion.

    That is good news. Didn’t even stay for New Hampshire.

    His polling was terrible.

    DeSantis’ poll numbers in New Hampshire have been in the single digits for two months now, with the latest polls having him at 5.7% versus Trump’s 47.4% and Haley’s 36.2%.

    Senior journalist lashes ABC management as staff vote no-confidence in managing director

    A meeting of several hundred ABC staff rebuked the organisation’s managing director David Anderson on Monday afternoon, with one of the broadcaster’s most senior journalists, global affairs editor John Lyons, saying he was embarrassed by his employer, which he said had shown pro-Israel bias and was failing to protect staff against complaints.

    The meeting, prompted by the sacking in December of broadcaster and activist Antoinette Lattouf, saw the ABC’s union members pass a vote of no confidence in Anderson by 125 votes to three. The ABC board will convene an emergency meeting on Tuesday to discuss the issues raised.

    Several in attendance at the online staff meeting revealed that Lyons, who is due to fly to Israel on Tuesday to cover the conflict with Hamas, said the broadcaster’s independence and reputation for trust has been “compromised” by recent events.

    Lyons said the ABC “faced one of its darkest days” last Tuesday, when this masthead published a series of leaked WhatsApp messages documenting a letter-writing campaign from pro-Israel lobbyists targeting Anderson and ABC chair Ita Buttrose, in the lead up to, and on the day of Lattouf’s dismissal.

    “When I read those WhatsApp messages, for the first time ever, and hopefully the last time ever, I felt embarrassed to work for the ABC. I was embarrassed that a group of 156 lawyers could laugh at how easy it was to manipulate the ABC,” Lyons said, according to multiple sources.

    Lyons, a former head of current affairs and investigations at the ABC, said they showed the organisation had bowed to “a group of lawyers lobbying for a foreign power”. “The clue is in the name: Lawyers for Israel thought that they could run a campaign to bully an ABC journalist out of her job and they did, they succeeded” …

    Is it the times that makes the man? or the man who makes the times? If Donald Trump was still building hotels, would there be another disruptor?

    Every person who is familiar with the Australia Day story knows that, on that momentous day – Jan. 26, 1788 – Captain Phillip hoisted the English flag in Sydney Cove and started the penal colony of New South Wales. On the same day, a French naval officer, Jean-François de Galaup, Comte de Lapérouse, arrived at Botany Bay and spent a few days fraternising with the English before returning, but never reaching, France. Indeed, the fate of Lapérouse’s two ships, the Astrolabe and Boussole, remained a mystery until 1826, when it was confirmed they had been shipwrecked on Vanikoro, now part of the Solomon Islands. It is possible that some sailors survived the ordeal, but nothing was heard of them, and their fate remains unknown. The Generalist Academy reported that, on the morning King Louis XVI went to the guillotine, January 21, 1793, he asked whether there was “any news of Lapérouse?”[1]

    Lapérouse sailed to the Pacific to establish trade connections, also being tasked with the establishment of French settlements. Lapérouse, a great admirer of James Cook, also intended to expand the maps Cook had made of the area. Quadrant has published two fine books by Margaret Cameron-Ash on the rivalry and imperial intrigue driving the great powers of the day’s race to Sydney. (editor’s note: Click on the cover illustrations to place your order). The story of Lapérouse’s expedition to the Pacific, however, is noteworthy for another reason.

    In 1785, Napoleon Bonaparte applied to serve as a crew member on one of the ships. He was a 16-year-old from Corsica, fresh out of the École Militaire in Paris, and although short-listed he was not selected to join the expedition. One could say that the world would have been a very different place had he been welcomed aboard and perished with the other crew members.

    Phillip met La Perouse when the French captain was sailing into Botany Bay as Phillip was sailing out to Sydney Harbour. After establishing himself in Sydney, Phillip sent a party to Botany Bay to see what the French where up to and they reported back to Phillip that they were doing some ship repairs there and had built a stockade for themselves.

    They told Phillip that the French were shooting the Aboriginals “for sport”, our indigenous brothers and sisters should be grateful that it was the Poms who colonised the country rather than the French.

    Most other European colonisers were just as bad, look at the Germans in Namibia and the Belgians in the Congo. The Portuguese were different, they just rooted everything that moved whenever they arrived anywhere to start a creole community.

    mh, Elon means “Oak Tree” in Hebrew. Elon’s dad had Jewish partners in his engineering business.
    There is also a Classical Greek link to the name which may explain how in a Wernher von Braun science fiction story of the 1950’s about an expedition to Mars where they discover a dying civilisation, the political leader of the Martians is known as “The Elon”.
    Born in Germany in 1912 von Braun would have had a good classical education.

    When I heard the news on Monday morning that Ron DeSantis had suspended his campaign, I was feeling dejected and upset. He had only days before said that he would be in the race until at least the Super Tuesday. In his video message, he explained why he was stepping off. I wondered whether he had reached some kind of deal with the Trump team to drop out. Which was a theory and I found it disappointing that this could be a possibility.

    Two days later, the dejection has worn off. I came across a twitter post from DeSantis that has cheered me up because it shows that he has not bent the knee to the god. So far. And I hope he doesn’t. He “endorsed” Trump but that was to honour the GOP pledge he had signed. He kept his word.

    The Florida state CFO, a Trump supporter, tried earlier this month to get through a bill where Florida taxpayers would be shelling out millions to pay Trump’s legal bills.

    Not happening.

    And Magadonians don’t like it.

    The audacity of that team to think that taxpayers should pay the bills of a billionaire when tax dollars are to fund state issues.

    The reason why Trump is desperate for the nomination is because he has big legal bills and he hopes to get it from the GOP. And donors. That is only possible if he has the nomination. But the GOP is broke.

    A good summary of the DeSantis campaign.

    There were formal debates as well as casual sessions where candidates could be asked questions by the media as well as by voters. Ron DeSantis was ready to take part in all and allowed all questions.

    Trump did not take part in any of the formal debates. Instead got exclusive interviews with softball questions and topics that should not be covered.

    So why haven’t we got all the details about DeSantis? Why was he not asked the questions where he would have to reveal his links to the underworld? I wrote to one Catholic website and asked if there was some dark, dirty secret about RDS that I didn’t know about. I didn’t get an answer to that question but was sent this link.

    I do not expect politicians and leaders to be perfect or saints. No human can match that mark.

    I can definitely say this: Even if 8 billion+ people in the world love and applaud Donald Trump, there is no way I will ever support him. Not with all the known facts that are available.

    If I come across evidence that proves DeSantis is not a real Conservative, I will be disappointed. And he will lose my regard and support. I will not trade my values and back a person who lacks the minimum qualities required to be a leader.

    I have repeatedly asked on this blog for any evidence re DeSantis that is negative because I genuinely want to know. Not opinions or biases – everyone is entitled to these and to freely express them. I want proof that shows he is a really bad guy, not trustworthy and lacks the credentials of a good leader.

    It is now popcorn munching time. It is fun to see the reactions from Maga. For the past year, there has been the barbs from both sides, but in the case of Maga, their god showed them how to do it.

    Days before the gubernatorial election in November 2022, when DeSantis was focussed on his re-election not the Presidency, Trump started calling him nicknames. Trump started the rift long before DeSantis signed up as a candidate.

    Now some in the Maga camp have decided it is time for “unity” because they need the votes of DeSantis supporters. And they need donations. Others are still busy calling RDS supporters names and hurling insults.

Most pollies, on both sides of the aisle, rush in to support Israel because there are votes in it. So check the ones who are doing it the least.

    Pick some passages from the Bible and link them to support for Zionism. Some more passages and link them to Trump as the Messiah/Saviour/Second Coming of Christ. The power of the evangelical pastors is so strong over the wallets and minds of the their church attendees that you get Zionism and Trumpism.

    And people still don’t understand why they are called cults.

    Of all the subjects that I have posted on this blog, the two that are most divisive are the ones I refer to as the cults. These are such intense topics with so much of information and detail spread over many sites. I spend my time reading, trying to understand and make some sense of it all. Then, I compile it here in logical groups, to make it easy for readers to consume and see the connections.

    Sometimes, I come across videos, clips, memes or quotes that can be hard to process from emotional, moral or spiritual perspectives. There are times when I debate with myself whether I should post something or not.

    Free Speech. Truth. Facts.
    Right or Wrong. Good or Bad.

    Speak up for what we believe in.
    And get brickbats from those who don’t like the facts.

    Or just flow along with the popular opinion.

    It may be that some have left this blog because we are posting on topics that may not be palatable…. except to Truth Seekers.

    Enough time has passed since October 7 for Israeli media to state what we’ve been saying for over three months, which is that Israel’s military and political leadership fabricated many of the grisliest Hamas atrocities in order to generate support for the genocidal war it planned in Gaza. Here, a Channel 13 panel including Mickey Rosenfeld, the longtime Israeli police spokesman who spread many such lies after October 7, acknowledges that lurid stories of babies hung on clotheslines, a fetus cut from a pregnant woman, a baby baked in an oven, and more were invented “to increase the magnitude of hatred for Hamas.” As Rosenfeld put it, “The war is not only military, not only political, it’s mainly media.”

    Channel 13 manages to elicit a statement of contrition from the IDF spokesman, who apologizes for “describ[ing] a reality that didn’t happen.” Of course, confessions like these are easy when the damage has already been done.

    “Iran-backed” is what Biden has to say every time.

    Jordan has criticised the White House for that statement and asked for a retraction. Jordan has emphasised that there are no American bases on its soil.

    The US bases are in north-east Syria near the Turkish border. These bases cover the Syrian oilfields, the oil from which is sent, via Turkey, to Israel. Israel used to get its oil from Russia but the sanctions on Russian oil exports meant that they had to get it elsewhere.

    MSF is deeply alarmed by the decision of some countries to suspend their funding to UNRWA, which is a lifeline for millions of Palestinians in Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the region.

    In the Gaza strip, the humanitarian crisis has reached catastrophic levels, and any additional limitations on aid will result in more deaths and suffering. Humanitarian organizations are already grappling to meet even a fraction of the urgent needs in Gaza.

    Conference organizer Daniella Weiss was clear: the plan is to starve Palestinians until they flee for their lives.
