    Internetting can be very time consuming and there’s simply so much stuff out there to get through. I’m convided out so have no desire to bring you the latest revelations or political bullshit hence just a few memes and occasional comments.

    Shy Ted, thanks.

    I look at it this way: There are alternative media sites that are posting the facts and the truth. Those sites and contributors are making the effort and spending time to find and share the truth with others.

    If I have learnt from them, then I can do my part to share what I know with others. There are many who still don’t realise what is happening in the world. I don’t have to pay for using this blog, but I have this platform to use and share what I have become aware of. Who knows how many others may get a peek into reality from what they read on this blog?

    We have a free site and it is important that those who know and have the facts or news pass it on.

    If those who have high BS meters can spot the BS in the political, MSM and other areas and comment on it, it may help those who are naïve and brainwashed to also realise they are being conned.

    Look at the numbers above. I can’t easily find like for like data, but those are the best numbers to tell you what happens when you REALLY conduct a war on drugs. Drug deaths get cut in half and in half again. Every scumbag dealer who you blow away saves many, many other lives.
    ..
    Of course, now Duerte has gone, the “international community” will start working away at degrading his legacy and making the Phillipines again safe for scumbags to sell drugs.
    From their ABC:
    ..

    In the final days of his wild and bloody presidency, Rodrigo Duterte was wistful about a few things he had yet to achieve for the Philippines.

    “Before I leave, let’s finish three or five drug lords,” he said.

    “I want to kill them. I do not want them alive.”

    From the moment he was sworn into power in 2016, Mr Duterte declared that Filipinos had one common enemy: the drug trade.

    Claiming that there were 3 million addicts in need of “slaughter”, he said he would offer bounties to police for killing suspected users and dealers.

    A bloodbath ensued.

    Some light shed on the character of our pollies, including the Labor leader of Senate + Foreign Minister.

    Such a big deal about indigenous voice to Parliament and yet a senior Labor pollie cannot extend the basic courtesy to a new Senator.

    Jacinta Price reflects on reaction to her maiden speech

    Senator Price said she had managed to crawl under the skin of Foreign Affairs Minister Senator Penny Wong, the leader of the government in the Senate, with her remarks.

    She added Senator Wong had left the chamber without shaking her hand or offering congratulations on her maiden speech as is tradition in Parliament.

    “I can safely say nothing told me I had my message any louder or any clearer than seeing that I had effectively managed to crawl right under the skin of Penny Wong,” Senator Price said.

    “Her bolt from the Senate floor to avoid following Senate tradition mind you, as government Senate leader to shake my First Nations hand and congratulate me on my first speech was a clear indication I thought.”

    I looked into it more and the ‘error message’ refers to Sony Music Enterprises – SME. So my guess is that Sony has a web crawler (algorithm) that searching for the zero one combination (i.e. music) that they own (according to copyright law) and automatically informs Youtube to automatically stop allowing it in certain areas of the world. So it is a form of Artificial Intelligence. My link is still working as I haven’t closed it, so I guess, once you are linked, the web crawler just gives up. Poor thing. What an amazing world. Music is just a combination of zeros and ones in the digital world and that is what Sony has the rights to and can stop you hearing Scott Ritter. You might try a VPN connection, if you are into it.

    The woman in this video, who is identified as 27-year-old Nayara Gomes, was shout three times by the attacker, Diego Dorado. In spite of being shot once in the chest, arm, and hand, she continued to fight with her assailant until she gained control of the pistol. She then proceeded to point the pistol at Dorado’s head before changing her mind and throwing it down the stairs.

    “I took the gun and pointed it at his forehead and didn’t pull the trigger. I said: ‘you’re ruining your life’, and threw the gun down the stairs. In my view, no one has the right to take anyone’s life. Even in self-defense. I thought about his family and I didn’t want to carry a death on my back, in my heart,” Gomes told local reporters in January after the incident.

    Vladimir Putin

    Presidential address on the occasion of signing the treaties on the accession of the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to Russia

    …At the same time, the West has clearly been engaged in wishful thinking for a long time. In launching the sanctions blitzkrieg against Russia, for example, they thought that they could once again line up the whole world at their command. As it turns out, however, such a bright prospect does not excite everyone – other than complete political masochists and admirers of other unconventional forms of international relations. Most states refuse to ”snap a salute“ and instead choose the sensible path of cooperation with Russia.

    The West clearly did not expect such insubordination. They simply got used to acting according to a template, to grab whatever they please, by blackmail, bribery, intimidation, and convinced themselves that these methods would work forever, as if they had fossilised in the past.

    Such self-confidence is a direct product not only of the notorious concept of exceptionalism – although it never ceases to amaze – but also of the real ”information hunger“ in the West. The truth has been drowned in an ocean of myths, illusions and fakes, using extremely aggressive propaganda, lying like Goebbels. The more unbelievable the lie, the quicker people will believe it – that is how they operate, according to this principle.

    But people cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalisation of western social media companies can’t heat their homes. Everything I am saying is important. And what I just said is no less so: you can’t feed anyone with paper – you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalisations – you need energy.

    That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like “Why is that, in fact?” are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals. They point back at Russia and say: that is the source of all your troubles. More lies…

    The authorities have stepped up their ruthless and often chaotic restrictions ahead of a key meeting of the Chinese Communist Party next month, at which Xi Jinping is expected to be anointed as party boss for an unprecedented third term. ‘Defeating’ the virus has become central to the cult of Xi, for whom it is a measure of the CCP’s superiority over bungling western democracies. Party propaganda has gone into overdrive ahead of the congress. The Chinese people have faced a barrage of slogans relayed online, as well as on television and by loudspeaker, urging them to ‘Extinguish every outbreak!’ and telling them that ‘History will remember those who contributed’.

    Melbourne e-scooter rider who died was ‘travelling at well over 20km/h’

    A 28-year-old man has died after he crashed his e-scooter when he hit a speed bump in Melbourne’s north.

    The man was not wearing a helmet when he collided with the speed bump on Cornwall Road at Pascoe Vale on September 22, according to Victoria Police.

    The Pascoe Vale man was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries but died on Friday.

    “From my knowledge, he didn’t have a helmet. He was doing well over 20km/h,” Fawkner Highway Patrol Sergeant Michael Free said on Monday.

    “I believe there’s also questions about whether he’s using a phone while riding,” Free said.

    The officer said the tragic accident was avoidable.

    There was another scooter crash on the weekend where a young child was riding with an adult, Free said.

    “With the speeds involved, the impacts and then the trauma that results is quite significant,” he said.

    It comes as police started a blitz on private e-scooter riders along the Upfield bike path at Brunswick on Monday morning.

    Scooters with a motor more powerful than 200 watts are illegal to use on public footpaths.

    “I’ve seen an e-scooter that had a 2400 watt motor on it, capable of 65 kilometres [per hour] with a 110 kilo person on it – you can imagine if that goes wrong, it’s going to be pretty nasty,” Free said.

    It is illegal to ride a private electric scooter on public roads, with people caught doing so facing fines of between $182 and $909.

    Investigations into the fatal e-scooter crash are continuing and police will prepare a report for the coroner.

    “From my knowledge, he didn’t have a helmet. He was doing well over 20km/h,” Fawkner Highway Patrol Sergeant Michael Free said on Monday.

    “I believe there’s also questions about whether he’s using a phone while riding,” Free said.

    Think of it as evolution in action.

    I’ve often wondered how the bureaucrats who draft the legislation arrive at the fine amounts. For example, why $182 and $909, why not $200 to $900?

    Wonder no more, Victorian fines are levied via ‘penalty units’which are indexed for inflation.
    Currently one penalty unit is ‘$184.92.
