    Two people who died were aged under 65 – a woman in her 40s and a man in his 50s. Both had received three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and had significant underlying health conditions.

    MSM are reporting Aussie Cossack is having trouble with his beautiful Russian wife.

    From Telegram, the Cossack says:

    This is what happens when an independent journalist like Aussie Cossack exposes the Australian Doherty Institute’s links to NATO funded Biological Weapons Laboratories.

    – The Daily Mail will pay dearly for their attacks on my family, I will be pursuing them for defamation.

    – My wife did not take a restraining order on me, it was done by the police as a form of harassment against me after a nosey neighbour told police “they heard shouting from our apartment”.

    – This restraining order is not court imposed, my wife and I oppose this and will be fighting this in court.

    He was very late getting onto the anti-mandate bus, he probably smelled the breeze and thought that he should jump on. I don’t think that he supported Craig Kelly’s no-mandate bill in Parliament though (I might be wrong?)

    ******

    For more than a year the encounter that took place at the Mena House Hotel, Giza Egypt, on 22 April 2015 between famed Egyptologist Dr Zahi Hawass and controversial alternative historian Graham Hancock, had been billed as “the first open debate between the representatives of two completely different versions of history.” On the night of the event, however, as Graham Hancock was focussing his slides prior to giving his opening presentation, and before most of the audience had even entered the room, Dr Hawass saw that one slide contained a photograph of Hancock’s colleague Robert Bauval, originator of the Orion correlation theory with whom Dr Hawass has had disagreements for many years. Dr Hawass immediately became furiously angry and began to shout at Hancock insisting that he censor his talk to remove all references to Robert Bauval and the Orion correlation theory. When Hancock explained that the alternative view of history that he was on stage to represent could not exclude the Orion correlation and therefore could not exclude Robert Bauval, Dr Hawass, again shouting, marched out of the debating room.

    Next, as the audience began to arrive, frantic negotiations took place off stage between the conference organisers and Dr Hawass. Finally Dr Hawass agreed to return and give his talk and answer questions from the audience, but he refused absolutely to hear or see Hancock’s talk, or to engage in any debate with Hancock. Hancock therefore gave his talk to the audience without Dr Hawass present (Dr Hawass sat in a room outside the conference hall while Hancock spoke). When Hancock had finished he answered questions from the audience. Then Dr Hawass entered, gave his talk, answered questions from the audience and left.

    A member of the audience who had arrived early did manage to record part of the scene of Dr Hawass storming out of the conference room and this video can be viewed here:

    Likewise during Dr Hawass’s Q&A he was asked a question about the 11,600-year-old megalithic site of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and whether it had any impact on his assessment of the disputed age of the megalithic Great Sphinx of Giza (which Hancock and others have long proposed might be of similar antiquity). Unfortunately it appeared that Dr Hawass was completely ignorant of the existence or implications of Gobekli Tepe, arguably the most important archaeological site in the world, so he was unable to answer the question which he passed on to the moderator, Dr Miroslav Barta, Head of the Czech Archaeological Institute in Cairo (who was by prior agreement not supposed to intervene or take sides in the debate at all) and whose knowledge of Gobekli Tepe was also clearly incomplete (for example Dr Barta stated that Gobekli Tepe dates from the “late eleventh millennium BC through the tenth millennium BC” whereas in fact the dates presently established for Gobekli Tepe are from 9600 BC — tenth millennium BC — through 8200 BC — ninth millennium BC — i.e. from 11,600 years ago to 10,200 years ago). Dr Barta also used circular logic, arguing that Egyptian civilisation is thousands of years younger than Gobekli Tepe and that therefore there could be no connection, whereas this is exactly the matter in debate, and the point of the question asked, namely whether the findings at Gobekli Tepe require open-minded consideration of the possibility that the Great Sphinx and other megalithic structures at Giza, and with them the origins of Egyptian civilisation, might in fact be much older than Egyptologists presently maintain.

    Hancock did at that point have a brief opportunity to stand up and give his own point of view on Gobekli Tepe and on its implications for the age of the Sphinx and that exchange is the subject of the present video clip.

    Hmm. Underlying.
    Def 1
    Def 2

    The underlying features of an object, event, or situation are not obvious, and it may be difficult to discover or reveal them.

    So, these “underlying” health issues aren’t obvious? Despite the person being on a bucket load of medication to try and manage it/them? And well documented?
    Just another lie from the lying liars. Blindingly obvious problems aren’t “underlying”.

    Biden calls Putin a war criminal and the Kremlin is angry.
    Well, after Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan there is hypocrisy there.

    And I suspect racism. The invasions of American administrations mostly involved the countries of non-white peoples. Whereas Ukraine the images are of white people in very distressing situation.

    I wonder whether if it was non-whites and not Europeans we would see all this uproar? Would people and the media care so much. Just a thought.

  25. candy says:

    Brittany’s trial: The PM apologised to her and so she’s pretty young and probably thinks that’s good enough to win the trial.
    It may be looked as some kind of evidence that rape occurred despite no scrap of evidence and she was so inebriated she simply has no memory.
    From the PM, so his words must be considered quite significant.

    My friend Ann managed to make it out of Kyiv, Ukraine, and on her way to France, she stopped by Budapest with her cat for a visit. In my tiny 1 room apartment we had Kate, Ann, myself and a cat, but we made the most of it. While Kate had to work remotely, I took Ann for a walk though the city and to world famous Széchenyi thermal baths. But along the way, we would stumble though the best children’s park in the world and a beautiful castle.

    I followed his advice during the early 1990’s recession. My home loan interest rate was at 18%. Koch advised people to get fixed rates because you can plan better. So i locked in a fixed rate at 15% for 5 years. Within a few months home loan interest rates crashed to around 13%.

    I decided to get out of my fixed rate home loan but had to pay a penalty. My mortgage then increased to above the amount i originally had. But it was still the best choice. Interest rates kept falling.

    But i will never forget Kochs incorrect advice
