    America’s proxy war continues

    Ukraine’s military says it has destroyed a Russian ammunition depot in the southern city of Nova Kakhovka, killing dozens of soldiers, in an attack apparently involving US-supplied missiles.
    However, Russian occupation officials say homes and warehouses were hit, leaving seven dead and up to 80 hurt.
    It was not possible to verify the extent of damage or casualties.
    Unconfirmed footage of several powerful explosions was shared on social media.
    Ukrainian presidential aide Mykhaylo Podolyak attributed the attack to the US-supplied Himars multiple rocket launcher and spoke of a “reality collision” for the world’s “second army”. A Russian-installed official in the southern Kherson region, Katerina Gubareva, accused Ukraine of bombing “peaceful cities with American weapons”.

    Hand sanitiser while children die

    Cops responding to the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting ran away from gunshots while 19 children and two teachers were left to die in their classrooms, according to new footage of the horrifying attack published Tuesday.

    The disturbing video, first obtained by the Austin-American Statesman, shows how police officers dilly-dallied in the hallway of Robb Elementary School instead of charging after 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos as he systematically slaughtered 21 people on May 24.

    The 77-minute clip shows officers rushing into the school just minutes after 18-year-old Ramos began his rampage, but rather than confront him, they stopped and lingered — with one cop in a helmet and vest even seen using a wall-mounted hand sanitizer and checking his phone.

    The United States does not have a policy of regime change in Russia, American officials said, a day after President Joe Biden said that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power”.

    “As you know, and as you’ve heard us say repeatedly, we do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia or anywhere else,” Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said on Sunday during a visit to Israel. “In this case, as in any case, it’s up to the people of the country in question. It’s up to the Russian people,” Blinken added.

    2GB host Ray Hadley blasts fill-in Chris Smith over Coral Princess comments

    2GB host Ray Hadley has blasted fill-in presenter Chris Smith over comments made about the Coral Princess cruise ship, which has allowed passengers and crew to disembark despite recording 118 Covid cases onboard.
    Hadley said he was “embarrassed to be on the same network” as him in a heated rant following Smith’s comments on Wednesday.

    Smith called for calm as panic threatened to ensue over yet another inevitable outcome on a tightly-packed cruise ship. He said passengers were well aware of the risk, and said they should be let off the ship in Sydney immediately considering the skyrocketing Covid tally in NSW.

    “We are in a different realm, this is very different. We have defences against the virus now and it’s not like following the Ruby Princess,” Smith said.

    “I would argue we shouldn’t panic … We need to be real about this, put it in context. Let’s not get excited.

    “Put it in perspective: there is only 118 positive cases on the Coral Princess.

    “At the same time there are more than 130,000 active cases in the NSW community, so you could be in the city today and walk past more than 100 people with the virus.”

    “We don’t need to get worked up about this Covid was always going to spread on cruise ships as it does on planes, as it does in workplaces, at the footy and elsewhere.

    “These people knew what they were walking into as well.”

    Doc Coleman on the NHS:

    Hospitals and health care are better run privately

    Nothing the Government runs ever works. This is because politicians make useless managers, while the people they employ don’t care enough about what they do to make any effort to do it half decently. The best (or worst) example of the failure of politicians and public employees to run anything effectively is the National Health Service (the NHS).

    The NHS is a bureaucratic monster which kills more people than it saves. It is absurdly expensive, wasteful and inefficient. There are more administrators than nurses or beds. The annual cost of NHS management is outrageous and indefensible: it’s double the amount the NHS spends on accident and emergency services, dental services and maternity care. To describe the NHS as an expensive and dangerous disaster is to understate the situation. If you are taken ill the chances are that it will not be the illness that will kill you but the treatment you receive afterwards. We would, as a nation, be better off with nothing. If that sounds overstated, it isn’t.

    Some people are saved, of course. Road accident victims and patients requiring emergency surgery may have reason to thank the NHS for their lives. But thousands more are damaged or killed by poor prescribing, inaccurate diagnoses, dangerous vaccines, incompetent nursing, long waiting times and so on.

    Anyone who enters an NHS hospital as a patient is putting their life at risk. If cigarette packets deserve to carry a health warning then so do hospitals.

    Bevan’s idea for a National Health Service was absurd. Why should the State provide a free health care service? The notion that health care should be `free’ because it is essential is rubbish. It would make more sense to say that food and water should be free.

    The idea that hospitals and doctors should be part of some national system is equally nonsensical. Bigger simply means employing more bureaucrats. The existence of a central authority, and the employment of layer upon layer of administration, makes the NHS expensive and inefficient.

    Britain’s National Health Service is beyond repair. We need to close it down, fire all the staff (no exceptions) and start again from scratch. The NHS gives everyone an equal right to die at the hands of an uncaring and cumbersome bureaucracy. The NHS spirit died years ago. But no one has yet had the guts to bury the body – which is steadily decomposing. Most people working in the NHS admit that if they (or a member of their family) fell ill they would not want to be treated in the hospital where they work. I will repeat that. Most people working in the NHS admit that if they (or a member of their family) fell ill they would not want to be treated in the hospital where they work. There really isn’t any need to say anything else, is there? It’s a fact that merits screaming rather than comment. (The NHS used to ask staff members if they’d be happy to be treated in their hospital. It was part of their public relations propaganda. After they found that just one in four members of staff would recommend the hospital where they worked to relatives or friends, or be happy to use it themselves, the question was quietly dropped. Would you take your car to a garage knowing that three out of four mechanics who worked there wouldn’t trust the garage with their own car?)

    A huge rift has opened up between doctors and patients. Doctors regard patients as the enemy. And patients regard doctors with distrust.

    In order to protect themselves from lawsuits doctors order batteries of investigations before daring to consider making a diagnosis. In the bad old days, doctors would make diagnoses based on the patients’ symptoms and their own experience and instincts. Today, diagnoses are made using tests which are far more fallible than instinct and experience.

    Endless laws and regulations have separated doctors from patients. Doctors are encouraged (pressured would be a better word) to introduce appointment systems even though both patients and doctors are better off without them.

    Our health care system is a failure because it is distorted by regulations, targets and legislation. Anyone who does not regard the NHS a failure should ask themselves why, before the onset of the covid fraud, so many people were flying out to India and Thailand to obtain medical care which, it was widely acknowledged, will be better and safer and much, much cheaper.

    Responsibilities have been replaced by rights. And, paradoxically, the result is that in modern England many people, particularly the elderly, are denied treatment. Powerful and organisations campaigning for particular groups of patients can put pressure on the controlling political party and force the Government to provide treatment for their group. But this is done at the expense of other patients. And so politically correct groups (such as those requiring infertility treatment or sex change operations) are treated while the elderly (not at all politically correct) are allowed to go blind and to die when they could be treated quite cheaply.

    Things were made much worse by the European Union. It is, for example, partly because of the EU that general practitioners in England no longer provide 24 hour cover for their patients.

    Our health care system is a failure because it is distorted by regulations, targets and legislation – some of it originating in London and much of it coming from Brussels. Replacing the NHS with a system of private medical care would employ far fewer bureaucrats but it would be infinitely fairer and better and considerably cheaper.

    Don’t believe me? Look at the figures.

    We spend over £120 billion a year on the NHS.

    There are more than 60,000,000 people in the UK.

    Divide 60,000,000 into £120 billion.

    And you have £2,000 per head.

    I could buy damned good private health cover for £2,000 year. And so could you. And the service would be better and safer.

    No political party would ever dare suggest closing the NHS and replacing it with a private health care system. But that’s what we need to do.

    The last two years has proved conclusively that the NHS is no longer fit for purpose.

    Bidenflation gone wild

    Fox News

    Inflation accelerated more than expected to a new four-decade high in June as the price of everyday necessities remains painfully high, exacerbating a financial strain for millions of Americans and worsening a political crisis for President Biden.

    The Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price for everyday goods, including gasoline, groceries and rents, rose 9.1% in June from a year ago. Prices jumped 1.3% in the one-month period from May. Those figures were both far higher than the 8.8% headline figure and 1% monthly gain forecast by Refinitiv economists.

    It marks the fastest pace of inflation since December 1981.

    The reason?
    According to the Hun:

    “But his convictions were overturned after it was revealed that there had been serious police misconduct during the murder investigation.
    A series of police statements concerning Constable Miller’s ‘dying declaration’ were shredded, replaced and some even backdated in relation to the fatally injured officer’s last words.
    The emergence of a doctored police statement made by officer Glenn Pullen, which contained added information and was backdated to the morning of the murders, was unearthed by the Herald Sun after it had been buried for 19 years.”

    Whether or not Roberts was involved in pulling triggers or merely a getaway driver or whatever, the conduct of Victoriastan Plod has been nothing short of fuckwittery. Add this to Lawyer X and their continual moronic behaviour during the lockdowns, it doesn’t smell good.

    De-globalisation. Onshoring. Geopolitical shit hits the fan.
    You will now pay the true cost of manufactured goods.
    No more millions of little foreign fingers working in far away sweatshops.
    At the same time the revolutionary stupidity about to make all your existing shit obsolete.

    You don’t have to read, just groan at the title, toons and first coupla paras.

    Thanks ST, that has really made me think over this week: Sunday: Greek Lamb, tzatziki and red wine; Monday and Tuesday: Chorizo stew with beef broth (home made), lima beans, left over red wine, soy sauce, onions; Thursday: Meat loaf with vegetables ( forced on me by my wife); Tonight: Fish and dark ale.
    Yep: Perfect.

    PS: I didn’t mind the picture. It put me completely off lunch. One gazillion calories saved.

    Cheeky sh*t. Pranksters are gunna prank.

    Steve, that video reminds me of a real-life incident back when I was a young bloke.
    I worked in a hardware shop and was very fit and flexible because I was training for my black belt.
    One afternoon it was very quiet, so I was standing at my L-shaped counter, facing the drive through, filling out some order forms.
    I felt a big one building so I lifted one leg above head height and let ‘er rip!
    Lo-o-ong and loud.
    It was then I heard a gentle “ahem” from behind me.
    A very pretty lady in very quiet footwear had come up to the counter through the racks behind me and had been quietly waiting for me to notice her.
    Most embarrassing…

    Still plenty over here wearing masks whilst waking down the street in McGowaninstan…


    Stew Peters:

    So, if you’re a pilot and REFUSE to comply with degenerate, Globalist, mask mandates, you are FORCED to seek therapy?!

    Baheej Saliba is back to discuss how the Globalists are programming the population to accept a demonic Sharia culture that erases human identity.

    The mandates need to end, and masks need to be BANNED!

    Adventures with Purpose.

    We found Matthew “Jed” Hall 4-years later after he, in January of 2018, a 16-year-old teenage boy, ran away from his family’s home in Idaho Falls. Leaving behind a note indicating he would never return.

    Four years later, AWP would find his vehicle submerged in eight feet of water about 75 yards from a boat ramp in the Snake River after only searching the river for 20-minutes.


    This video documents Adventures With Purpose’s search for Jedediah, using the clues left behind with an emphasis on the AWP’s 5-mile search strategy.

    – Where were they last seen?
    – Where did they live?
    – Where did they work?
    – Where did they go to school?

    SOLVED 16-Year Old (Jed Hall) Missing 4-years… We FOUND him in Under 20 minutes!
