    I can’t see a Republic as a better option for Australia.
    But Charlie as King?

    In a break from tradition, King Charles III coronation ceremony asks all subjects of the Crown to recite: ‘I swear that I will pay true allegiance to Your Majesty, and to your heirs and successors according to law. So help me God.’

    Who is this God we are calling on? Is this a divine being? Which God? The multi-culti diversity gods of the many religions which will be participating in the ceremony?

    Or the Great Reset – One World Religion – woke, one world order god?

    The AUKUS deal to which we are now signatories will have many impacts on us, amongst them will be real estate valuations for properties in Perth’s southern suburbs.

    The Garden Island naval base, HMAS Stirling, will be expanded to accommodate US and UK submarines, which makes it a valid target should the United States proceed with plans for a war with China in 2025, or 2027 as other military planners say. If the US Navy uses its submarine fleet to prevent Chinese shipping in the Indian Ocean, for example to stop oil shipments from Saudi Arabia to China, then it’s good-bye to Garden Island and a large part of Perth’s southern coastal suburbs.

    If China was to launch a Dong-Feng-5 (5 megaton) ICBM which struck Garden Island, the damage radius would destroy most of Perth’s southern suburbs and even extend to Perth city, parts of the northern beaches and as far south as Mandurah.

    This is not a good time to invest in real estate in Perth’s southern suburbs. Check the interactive NUKEMAP before purchasing investments in Perth, use Garden Island Western Australia as the target and the current Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile, the Dong-Feng-5.

    It looks as if some sections of the GOP are trying very, very hard to lose the 2024 election.

    I have posted my views on some of the candidates. So far, I cannot see anyone who deserves to be the GOP nominee or is the front-runner to be the next President of the US.

    The Trump supporters believe that their man is the best and no one should dare compete against him. Their man feels entitled to a unanimous nomination without any debates and believes that the position of GOP candidate for 2024 should be his. There are calls from the Trump camp for the other main contender, DeSantis, and anyone else to run in 2028.

    News flash: If the GOP don’t win the White House in 2024, it is gone forever. That is why it is important for all those who do have the necessary skills and qualities to sign up to the primaries and let the conservatives decide who is the best one to beat the Dems. No one is perfect – but who has the real conservative values (preaching and practising) to fairly represent the Republican party and its voters? Who has the best chance of winning?

    Posting my rants and analysis takes up too much of time but for those who seriously want to read, understand and get a better picture of the facts rather than just follow what the Forever Trumpers think is the sure-winning formula, I am going to post some links.

    Bud Light boycott

    This boycott was set in motion and fuelled by a group of real conservatives led by Matt Walsh.

    We have devastated Bud Light with this boycott. Easily the most effective conservative boycott in modern American history. And it shows us the path forward. All it takes is a little bit of strategic planning and follow-through.
    The great thing is that this was completely grassroots. Many prominent Republicans were actively against the boycott. We did this on our own. A great victory. But it’s not over.

    What was the result of the boycott?

    – Bud Light sales continue to plummet after transgender marketing controversy

    – Example: No one is buying Bud Light at the Red Sox game in Boston

    Anheuser-Busch CEO
    FINALLY disavows Dylan Mulvaney Bud Light partnership and says ‘it was not a campaign’ after firm sent letter to retailers blaming an outside ad agency for approving it ‘without management awareness’ as sales crash 26%

    – Guess which GOP “conservative” team was against the boycott because that company donates to Republicans?
    – Guess which team has been labelling other conservatives and republicans RINOs because of their donors?
    – Guess which GOP team is saying that fighting the culture wars is not critical?

    The answer is here and here.

    It is well within living memory that the ABC’s attitude to any Royal event or person was practically reverential. While this may have gone a bit far, it was nowhere near as nauseating and unabashedly biased as the fiasco in the coverage of the coronation.

    The letters page of The Australian today was dotted with missives than began ‘I am usually a loyal ABC viewer, but …’ and concluding with ‘so I switched to another channel.’

    This blog was cloned from Sinc’s blog and it inherited an About section where he said:
    I don’t pay for posts – the Cat is a labour of love.

    When Sinc announced the closure of his blog – unknown to most of us – another Cat was busy working on a solution for another Catallaxy blog, so that we could continue to have a free speech site. That was Adam – the owner of this blog. He paid to get this blog up and running, at short notice. And he continues to pay to keep this show on the road. He hasn’t asked us to Donate for its upkeep. We also do not have ads promoted here to pay for costs.
    I guess it could be called a labour of love ….. to support a free, free speech site for others to use.

    He did it even though (as he explained on the blog) he was very busy with family and business commitments. (The fact that he later faced brickbats for prioritising the needs of his family during Covid, over moderating the blog, is another story.)

    Those of us who come here and post as regulars – comments as well as write Posts – don’t get paid a cent for it. That is true in my case, and I’m sure it is the same with others here.
    I guess it could be called a labour of love ….. for sharing information and opinions that we have and also learning from each other.

    Being a blog contributor – Comments and Posts – is time-consuming and most of us are busy people.
    Why do we do it?

    Speaking for myself: I am an information consumer – an infoholic. I want to learn, and I am searching for facts on the news in the media. A truth-seeker. Because I learn from others who make the time to share on other blogs and sites, I think that I should not keep what I have learnt to myself but should pass it on so that others may benefit from what I know. This includes the serious stuff as well as the entertainment and funnies. That I why I spend time here as often as I am able to, posting as much as I can. I share news, info, opinions, rants and other bits and pieces.

    (Contd. … comment)

    (Contd. from above)

    But the learning process needs to be a two-way street. It is just a few (I can count on the fingers of one hand and still have some to spare) who are making the huge effort to keep it going by posting a great many comments, on a regular basis. If there were more regular posters, it wouldn’t fall to the few to keep the site active by posting 5 – 6 – 7 or more continuous comments.

    There are many blogs out there to join and take part, but for me this blog is unique. It has no frills, it is simple. It also lacks the pettiness, rancour, abuse and name-calling that can require scrolling and make it difficult to read the good comments. It is focussed on the enemy out there not some in-fighting in here. I thought that there would be, maybe, 8 or 10 or 12 similar-minded free speech believers who understand the crisis taking place in this country and the world and would want to regularly participate in a quiet, d**khead-free blog.

    What I am saying here, I have said several times in my other rants. I have been making an extra effort to come and post even though I am very busy because I don’t want this blog to shut down. But just a very few of us having to carry it does not make a great deal of sense. Maybe the total blog traffic is just 3 or 4 of us. Maybe we are just talking to each other. It can’t be possible that there must be others who are silent here because they live in a vacuum and do not watch television, listen to the radio, read newspapers or the internet, so don’t know what is in the news to comment on. They have no life experiences to share. No opinions of what is happening in the country/world. No reactions to what others are posting here.  Not even a single sentence.

    Is it apathy, disinterest, indifference, she’ll  be right – mate, don’t care, or someone else can do it – not me?

    The hate speech bill is currently being passed in Ireland despite public protests. The politicians know better than the mere plebs what is best for them. Think it won’t happen here? It will mean that some blogs and sites will have to shut down – that is if they don’t first get penalised and closed by our overlords.

    We will only understand the value of a free, free speech site when we no longer have it.

    So the very, very few dedicated regular contributors who come here, despite our busy lives and keep the blog running have to ask ourselves:
    Is this labour of love worth it?

    $10 trillion could be ‘wiped’ from banks as crisis escalates, Bitcoin is your insurance – Greg Foss

    Will the ongoing banking crisis cause gold and Bitcoin to rally?

    Greg Foss, Bitcoin Strategist and Executive Director at Validus Power Corp, and Michelle Makori, Lead Anchor and Editor-in-Chief at Kitco News, discuss the Federal Reserve’s latest rate hike decision, along with Powell’s statement that the U.S. banking system is ‘sound and resilient’ — which Foss disputes. Foss claims that more banks will fail, and that $10 trillion could be ‘wiped out’ from the banking system. This will occur alongside a broader U.S. public debt crisis, which will cause Bitcoin to soar in value as the American economy deteriorates.

    Looks as though Chairman Dan wants to bask in reflected glory…

    The farewell for legendary entertainer Barry Humphries is up in the air after reports that the family is “distressed” by the involvement of Victoria’s Andrews government.

    Mr Humphries, best known for his beloved characters Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson, died at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney last month aged 89 following complications from hip surgery.

    Despite being born and raised in Melbourne, Humphries’ family rejected an offer for a joint funeral including Victoria, New South Wales and the Commonwealth.

    Entertainment reporter Peter Ford has revealed the Humphries’ family have been upset by the continued involvement of the Victorian government after electing for his life to be honoured in Sydney.

    “I’m told the family are greatly distressed by how some of this is playing out, it seems to be wrong,” he told 3AW.

    “They said from the beginning they did not want the Victorian government involved, they don’t want their fingerprints anywhere near it and yet you’ve got the Prime Minister announcing that Victoria is co-hosting it.

    “Daniel Andrews is talking in a similar vein and he is saying the family are disagreeing on certain aspects on what is going to take place.”

    The Andrews government confirmed on Tuesday that it had reached out to Humphries’ family to discuss a state funeral, however they declined the offer.

    According to Ford, the family felt let down by Premier Daniel Andrews not stepping in when Mr Humphries name was stripped from the Melbourne Comedy Festival’s “Barry Award” in 2019.

    He indicated that they believed more could have been done for the legend, who had spent more than five decades entertaining Australian audiences.

    Ford also reminded 3AW listeners that Mr Humprhies would have been lucid until he died and most likely left very clear instructions for his family in regards to funeral arrangements.

    “The family may pull the plug at any moment if this is not clarified,” he said, referring to Victoria’s involvement.

    The new NSW government cut off the money for decent water supplies to towns like Nyngan:

    Cr Neill said the council was turning to the state Labor government to give pumping approval and fund the rest of the project.

    “We don’t know what we can do, and we don’t know if we’re going to get any funding to do it,” he said.

    “We’re in limbo.”

    The ABC repeatedly asked new Water Minister Rose Jackson if she would fund the rest of the project, but received no response.
    Water security uncertain

    The bore was part of the Nyngan Cobar Water Security Project, which was jointly funded by the state and federal governments in partnership with the local government.

    The back-up bore would have ensured the town would still have tap water if the Macquarie River dried up.

    The town narrowly avoided running out of drinking water during the last drought when Burrendong Dam dried up and the river levels fell.

    Other dam and pipe plans under the water security project have also stalled and blown their budgets.

    As soon as the drought ended in various places, water security projects were put on the backburner, or just cancelled.

    Apparently, there would never be another drought, according to the seers in government. Or, more likely, the issue was off the front pages, so let’s disappear it.

    The bore was part of the Nyngan Cobar Water Security Project, which was jointly funded by the state and federal governments in partnership with the local government.

    I don’t know what the Nyngan water quality is like, but it’s bloody awful in Cobar. I stayed overnight there once and the water smelled like liquid sulphur, when you emerge from the shower you feel sticky, sulphur mixed with glue.

    It’s on par with Ceduna with having the worst water in Australia.

    Paul Joseph Watson on the CNN Trump town-hall meeting.

    You okay, hun? – 10 minutes.

    Why did anyone vote for that old crook Joe Biden? I know that there weren’t 81 Million of them, but there were some valid votes for Joe amongst all the fraudulent votes.

    You’d be surprised. I have lots of friends, or acquaintances in the USA and travel there a lot. They are all pig ignorant. Stunning. I asked one ex oz friend if anyone in his area voted for Trump and he could only think of the garbos. I couldn’t resist “You mean, the only people who actually work”.
