    Hows this for cheeky, reported that Djokovic can comeback to Australia earlier than the 3 years, if he gets the jab. AS IF.
    No doubt the mandate will be long gone before then but Im predicting an act of bastardry that he will still have to get the jab.

    Dr Karen Price

    Dear Karen

    I just caught part of your interview on one of our ever-unreliable TV channels and was again shocked by the level of deception and duplicity of peak organisations in spreading misinformation and disinformation to a trusting public.

    I’m sure you know full well that masks do not and cannot prevent the transmission of viruses, something that has been well-known to honest medical practitioners for over a century.

    Even the master manipulator and expert fabricator, Dr Anthony Fauci, has put his name on research that demonstrates that masks enhance the likelihood of acquiring bacterial pneumonia.

    “Predominant Role of Bacterial Pneumonia as a Cause of Death in Pandemic Influenza: Implications for Pandemic Influenza Preparedness” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC2599911/ .

    Just as Fauci’s NIH has known since 2005 that “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread” – https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16115318/ .

    We all know about AHPRA’s instructions to you all on what will happen to you if you criticise the unconstitutional vaccine and mask “mandates” (see Section 51(xxiiiA) of the Australian Constitution), and the TGA prohibiting GPs from prescribing Ivermectin off-label to treat covid, but does that justify you openly assisting in this dangerous campaign that is taking Australian lives?

    If law-abiding Australians should wrest control of our governments back from the cabal that has power at present, there will be a Covid Nuremberg. How will you and the RACGP fare when you are called to face it?

    The Age

    Bungling Australia unwittingly made a martyr of Novak Djokovic

    For all that the full force of Australian bureaucracy has derailed in Novak Djokovic’s progress to a record 21st major title, it has also unwittingly made him a martyr. The Serbian ultras who turned up here wearing “greatest of all time” T-shirts, adorned with a silhouette of the world No.1 wearing a crown, barely scratched the surface of the rage. It was left to his compatriots in the locker room to express the smouldering resentment at his deportation.

    Laslo Djere, formerly Djokovic’s protege, did not temper his disgust, describing the situation as “catastrophic”. With the first day of this Australian Open eclipsed by the nine-time champion’s humiliating departure from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport, flanked by border force officials after a federal court upheld a decision to cancel his visa for a second time, the 26-year-old Djere claimed that the spectacle would make all players, Serbian or otherwise, revise their perceptions of the country.

    “To tell you the truth, not just Serbians, I think the whole world saw it and they will probably have a new or different opinion about Australia,” said Djere. “I mean, the guy had an exemption, and they still deported him. He’s not vaccinated, but we were told we could enter the country with an exemption, which he had, and yet he’s not here with us. Something went horribly wrong. It was a truly catastrophic situation.”

    Despite Djokovic’s stellar record at Melbourne Park, and his attempts to cultivate an enduring relationship with audiences here, he had, in Djere’s view, been abandoned by the Australian public. “He’s a great guy and always tries to help others, but most of the Australian people wanted him to leave,” Djere argued. “Two years ago, when there were the bushfires, he donated a good amount of money, and now here in Australia everyone just turned their backs on him.”

    For all the expectation that the Serbian-Australian community would stage mass protests at the tournament, the mood among Djokovic supporters was one of weary bitterness at their idol’s fate. A few of those watching Dusan Lajovic’s victory over Marton Fucsovics draped themselves in Serbian flags, still absorbing the significance of Djokovic’s ejection and the possibility that he could be banned from Australia for three years.

    Soon enough, Craig Tiley, the chief executive of Tennis Australia, will need to acknowledge his role in this scarcely credible debacle. After all, it has been reported that it was Tiley’s assurance to Djokovic that his medical exemption was above board that encouraged him to fly to Australia in the first place. But the collapse in communications, with the government’s ruling that a prior COVID-19 infection did not make him exempt at all, set in train 10 days of legal theatre that culminated in the near-destruction of Djokovic’s reputation. Resignations have been demanded for less. It is little wonder that Tiley, normally the first to trumpet the virtues of his tournament, has disappeared from public view.

    Djere’s condemnation was echoed by Lajovic, who reserved particular criticism for Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s rationale that Djokovic could aggravate anti-vaccination sentiment in Australia.

    “I think that the way they treated him was terribly wrong, that the decision itself was terribly wrong, and that the reason why they did it was terribly wrong. For this to be based just on an idea, I don’t think it’s the right way. I hope that in the future, he will be the best player in history, and that in the future this will only be looked at as a setback on that path.”

    It falls to Rafael Nadal to try to compound Djokovic’s misery by edging ahead in the scramble to become statistically the greatest men’s player in history. Even though he has played just 12 events in the past two years, and even though 13 years have elapsed since his solitary Australian Open triumph, he might never have a better chance at snatching a 21st title at the expense of his Serbian rival. After all, this is the first time in his professional career that he has entered a slam without either Djokovic or Roger Federer for company.

    Nadal, a nimble diplomat, was not about to second-guess the fairness or legality of Australia’s move to dispatch Djokovic back to Monte Carlo. As he put it, shortly after swatting aside American Marcos Giron in straight sets: “I will never be against what the justice says.”

    But he did offer sympathy for Djokovic on a human level, and a concession that the tournament was diminished in his absence. “The situation has been a mess,” he said. “He’s not the only one who did things badly in the case. There are more responsibilities on everyone for this terrible situation that we have faced for the last two weeks. In a personal sense, I would like to see him playing here. If Novak is playing, it’s better for everybody – no doubt about that.”

    It was as pointed a criticism as you would ever hear from Nadal. And it conveyed one essential truth: that Tiley, in his desperation to involve Djokovic and in his apparent obliviousness to the federal government’s rules, has inadvertently sabotaged his own party.

Before posting, I try to reference-check to see if the info is true. (For example, Deux, above.) Sometimes, it can be quite difficult because the top results are fact-checkers from the very trustworthy leftie stooges. They quote the meme and add:

    I admire him for standing up for his beliefs and not caving to such immense pressure. He put his body, health, sovereignty and principles above money and fame and that is truly commendable. I wish more sports players would be this principled and stand this tall to the authoritarian overreach we have been witnessing these past two years – if they just united and boycotted these measures together, they would fall apart.

    It is a revelation of his character. He has been booed by his supporters for promoting the vaxx. That is angering him.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but here are the two problems with Trump’s presidency:

    1/ His advisers
    He trusted and relied on a few wrong people, including his daughter, who was more about her agenda, than the country. There were many decisions he made that were not wise.

    2/ His Ego
    He has a really big one and as long as he has millions of Conservative adoring fans, exclusively, all is well.
    He made a big mistake on the vaxx and he is not prepared to admit it.

    He needs focus on his media company and play the role of a mentor instead of wanting to get back as President. He has already won this second term, the cheating Dems deprived him of the throne.

    Attacking DeSantis is a cheap shot. You don’t do that to someone who has been an ally.

    I watched his whole playlist while I was in hospital after the knee surgery and it explains a lot of landforms I know here in FNQ.

    Even the lefties are not thrilled with Scotty’s decision.

    Djokovic lost because the law was designed to make the Minister’s decisions immune from judicial review. That is not a good thing.

    Scott should be given Australia of the Year, for keeping Australia’s borders secure against people who he gave visas to.

    He reckons Trump did it to head off the globalists’ plan of shutting down economies for up to 13 years while waiting for a vax to be developed.
    The trade off was some vax deaths versus millions dying from starvation.

    Along side promoting the vax, he could have pushed for HCQ and Ivermectin, too.

    He did promote HCQ, so globalists demonised and banned it.
    He also promoted the UV treatment to clean blood of viruses, which is legit but experimental (I have a link somewhere), so of course leftards drank bleach and had conniption fits.

    Also, thanks for your memes, kaysee, I spread them widely.

    When the law is an ass — and needs its arse kicked

    The loving and forgiving Christian God would rain fire and brimstone down upon Scott Morrison’s Migration Act’s extraordinary ‘god power’.

    James Allsop, chief justice of the Federal Court, did his best to explain to the global audience exactly what Novak Djokovic’s second case against the Australian government was not about.

    The case focused, Allsop said before delivering the court’s unanimous verdict, “on whether [the immigration minister’s decision to cancel Djokovic’s visa for a second time] was irrational or legally unreasonable. It is not part of the function of the court to decide upon the merits of the decision.”

    Allsop’s point was that the case was not an appeal from Alex Hawke’s decision; that is not legally available. It was an application for “judicial review”: a request to the court to look at the minister’s executive action and determine whether it was one he could have lawfully made.

    Poor Scotty.
    He kicked a top sportsman out of the country to please the masses. But no one is happy.

    Is Allsop saying the Minister could kick the tennis player out for bad breathe, for example, if he liked to do so, because it was in the Ministers power to do so?

    If the Immigration Minister’s powers are so great, how is the case of the Sri Lankans explained?

    In the beginning of corona when fear was very great, and it would be churlish to deny that, a vaccination to prevent the disease was the goal and I think mostly “vaccine” meant a properly tested and safe vaccination – a once off. Like the vaccinations we take for granted now.

    Who knew it would morph into this situation we have now of multiple partially effective booster shots with very worrisome side-effects and a lottery as to who might actually die of it.

    I can’t see how Trump could have foreseen that.
