    US relearning an old lesson from the 70’s: if the Saudis have you over a barrel, you are getting rogered, no matter what.

    The US has to change direction and become energy independent again, they have to scrap all this green nonsense. I hope they restore our strategic oil reserves while they are at it.

    We’ve got to pay a premium for our oil now because of Yellen’s proposal to cap oil prices. Naturally OPEC would fight any interference in the oil market so we now have to pay more for our oil whereas China and other nations get it at the old price.

    Thanks Janet, thanks Joe, great friends you lot are.

    Gravitas: Saudi Arabia wants to join BRICS

    … and Turkey, Argentina, Egypt, possibly Iran.

    More than half the world’s population and almost half of the world’s GDP is now in BRICS nations and this number is growing.

    How did America mess up so badly in such a short time?

    Bit of a problem for the lefties.
    How do they virtue-signal when they have to choose between 2 minority groups? Stand against Homophobia or Islamophobia?

    Until now, it was those phobic conservtive Christians who have been the ones fighting against the qwertism in schools. Now, the Muslims have joined in.

    Parents in Dearborn, Michigan, are holding a mass rally to get radical gender theory out of their schools. “We as parents … are responsible for our children. The progressive dogma … will not indoctrinate our children.”

    Parents were outraged when they discovered that the local school district had promoted a book that teaches children the “ins and outs of gay sex” and “how sex apps work.”

    Should schools be providing CHILDREN access to this sort of pornographic material?

    Lidia Thorpe forced to resign her leadership position (Deputy Leader of the Greens in the Senate) due to “poor judgement” in having an obvious conflict of interest in having a romantic relationship with a bloke with ties to outlaw motorcycle gangs while sitting on the joint parliamentary law enforcement committee (which was receiving confidential briefings about bikie gangs and organised crime). Even her staff were so dismayed by her behaviour that they relayed their concerns to Adam Bandt’s office (although he denies that the information was passed on to him).

    There was comment on another news site that she should resign and leave. That would then raise the overall IQ of the Senate.

    If she takes Bandit with her (he didn’t know about it even though her staff relayed their concerns to him?) imagine the further increase of the total Senate IQ.

    Not much.

    Daniel Andrews reckons Christian views are ‘appalling’.
    Dutton reckons Christian views are an ‘abomination’.


    … but why does the hope of the side, our federal Liberal leader, Peter Dutton, then drop the A-bomb on Thorburn’s church? Can he not hear the explosion reverberating through the LNP and the Christian constituency? That is the most bewildering element of this sorry saga.

    I was tempted to do my first comment on sussietube. I refrained. Some of the wankers commenting on this case was probably at the party ( I have no proof )



    Adventures with Purpose.

    We found 16-year-old Kiely Rodni in her 2013 Honda CRV underwater in Prosser Creek Reservoir – just 300 yards from her last know location where she attended a 300+ person party at Prosser Creek Family Campground near Truckee, CA.

    Family, friends, and the entire Truckee community have been left seeking answers leading up to her disappearance in what has become one of the most extensively searched missing person cases in California state history – encompassing 18 agencies and over 19,000 search & rescue hours.

    This video documents AWP Team Lead Divers – Doug Bishop & Nick Rinn’s detailed search for Kiely Rodni and brings to light detailed information as well as “x-factor” clues given by courageous individuals that day willing to step in and do the right thing.

    **SPECIAL UPDATE: In the original video at 39:44 Doug makes the phone call to Kiely’s Aunt and Grandmother to let them know first that AWP had found Kiely and her Honda CRV in Prosser Creek Reservoir. This section of the video has been removed in honor of a request by a family representative due to the sensitive nature and privacy the family wishes to have and maintain during these hard times. As in all of our past cases we prioritize the wishes of the family first and foremost. We are honored to serve Kiely’s family to help bring closure during these hard times. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Rodni-Nieman family so that healing can begin and more answers be brought to light in the weeks and months ahead.

    Because Kiely’s case is currently an active ongoing investigation with the Placer County Sheriffs Department – some individuals have been blurred and/or names have been removed to protect the integrity of the investigation.

    The Age

    Victoria’s three remaining coal-fired power plants are likely to close years earlier than expected after the Andrews government announced a $1 billion plan to increase renewable energy and become an active competitor in the electricity market. Premier Daniel Andrews and Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio said a re-elected Labor government would revive the State Electricity Commission – which was carved up and sold off in the ’90s – promising “unreliable, privatised coal will be replaced by clean, government-owned renewable energy”.
