    I thought that the US President couldn’t send US military forces into war without Congressional approval, I was wrong.

    Changes were made under Nixon’s presidency which gave the US President greater powers without Congressional oversight. Biden could, quite lawfully, send US forces into Ukraine to fight the Russians without addressing Congress on his actions for 90 days.

    Then a further 90 days must pass before Congress can order a cease in hostilities, so Joe effectively could go to war against Russia for six months before Congress can reign him in.

    The US 101st airborne division, around 40,000 men strong (?), is presently sitting in Romania and Poland and they could be deployed to Ukraine on a moments notice. Will Joe get his way and have a war with Russia?

    So, what did the SFLs do today?

    On Wednesday, October 12, the Queensland Labor government – with support from the LNP opposition – passed a dystopian and dangerous bill. The Health Practitioner Regulation National Law and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2022 refocuses the guiding principles of medicine to prioritise public confidence over public health and safety. It allows bureaucrats to name and shame doctors, a move which the AMA described as ‘incoherent zealotry’.

    Laboratory Conditions:

    At a hospital, late one night, a physician discovers that one of her patients is missing, and likely has passed away, as he was not expected to survive the night. The physician tracks the body to a nearby medical school, where students are in the midst of an illicit experiment. The physician faces an ethical dilemma that puts her clinical judgment up against the amoral ambition of the chair of the graduate school of neuroscience. Even if the doctor can save her patient, what about the next one? And the one after that? At what point should human compassion outweigh research science and “the need to know”?

    “Most of the generation Trump, the alt-right people, the people who like me, they’re not anti-Semites. They don’t care about Jews,” Yiannopoulos told Dave Rubin on the Rubin Report last March when discussing the rise of hate speech on social media.

    “They may have some prejudice about Jews,” he added. “Like the Jews run everything. Well we do. The Jews run all the banks. Well we do. The Jews run the media. Well we do. You know they’re right about all that stuff.”

    When pressed by Rubin, Yiannopoulos insisted that Jewish control over finance and the media is “not in debate,” explaining that “Jews completely dominate the media. Vastly disproportionately represented in all of these professions. That’s just a fact, it’s not anti-Semitic to point out statistics.”

    A mistrial and the discharge of the jury.
    Some thoughts on this high profile case.

    A juror has broken the rules and taken into the jury room documents that are not permitted, and they were repeatedly warned about this ‘research’ by the Chief Justice.

    The jury members have folders for their documents and this ‘forbidden’ document was placed on the top (not hidden below some permitted documents) and could be seen through the clear folder without being opened.

    One of the Sheriff’s officers accidentally bumped into this particular folder and it fell to the floor. He saw through the clear folder the title of the document and reported it.

    It seems as if the alleged victim has some ardent supporters who do not understand the legal system and the fact that the onus is on the prosecution and alleged victim to prove the crime took place and not the defence and alleged offender to prove that they are not guilty.

    The alleged victim has been led to believe that she is a heroine standing up for the rights of women who have been sexually assaulted by evil men. Probably thought that the jury would deliberate for one hour and then come out with a verdict of “Guilty”. Or at the most, it would take a day. There must have been a prepared speech of victory with supporters cheering on.

    When that did not happen, a second speech was prepared to blame the system and everyone else but not herself.

    The emotional speech following the mistrial should be considered a contempt of court. She would have had her legal team with her who would have understood (even if she didn’t) what the admonition by the Chief Justice meant.

    In order not to jeopardise the case, the above random thoughts have not mentioned any names.
    Not really.

    Thanks old bloke, so much to watch.

    I noticed that the antivenoms which Ardis mentioned included nicotine. Imagine that, if all the vaxxed people took up smoking, that would improve their health outcomes.

    Must be true, I remember that there was surprise in 2021 when it was revealed that, statistically, smokers were less likely to get Covid-19. The health experts were surprised as they thought that smokers would be more susceptible to a respiratory virus.

    MEP Cristian Terhes calls for the immediate resignation of Ursula von der Leyen
    74,913 views 18 Oct 2022

    Ursula von der Leyen was called to resign by MEP Cristian Terhes in a speech he had in the Plenary of the European Parliament on October 17, 2022.

    “Mister president, dear colleagues,
    Ursula von der Leyen must immediately and unconditionally resign from her position as President of the European Commission due to the fact that her actions are currently criminally investigated by the European Public Prosecutor’s Office.

    EPPO just announced few days ago that is investigating the way the contracts were signed between the European Commission and producers of vaccines.

    And this is what the Court of Auditors just stated in a report released few days ago, and I quote:

    “The Commission has signed, up to November 2021, 71 billion euros worth of contracts on behalf of the Member States to purchase up to 4.6 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses.”

    That means that she purchased ten doses of vaccines for every EU citizen based on contracts that were never released to the public.

    This is how the contract that she signed with these pharmaceutical companies was released to the public.

    How is this possible in a European Union that is called to be transparent with the way is using people’s money?

    So I’m asking you again and calling again for [her] immediate and unconditional resignation.
    Thank you.”

    Madness to ban Djokovic but let Wade play on with COVID-19

    There could hardly be a more damning illustration of Australia’s double standards on COVID-19. On Friday night, Matthew Wade, wicketkeeper for the host nation at the T20 World Cup, is competing against England in Melbourne despite having tested positive for the virus.

    In the meantime, Novak Djokovic, still scarred by his deportation at the whim of a government desperate to demonise the unvaccinated, languishes in confusion as to whether he will even be allowed into the country to chase his 10th Australian Open title.

    The inconsistency of the rules is enough to make you scream.

    We saw as much at this year’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, where, after 10 days of fervent mask-wearing and bubble-forming befitting Australia’s perception of England as a plague zone, the green-and-gold fielded Tahlia McGrath for the women’s T20 final regardless of the fact she was COVID-positive.

    Somehow, it perfectly encapsulated the hypocrisy that has defined much of Australia’s hard-line pandemic response. If there is a piece of dutiful COVID theatre to perform, its athletes are first in the queue. But if there is a match to be won, all protocols go out of the window.

    This year, Australia, once so fanatical about trying to eliminate COVID that it threatened its own citizens with five years’ imprisonment if they dared return home from India, has belatedly rejoined the rest of the world.

    During the Ashes in December, it was still jumping at shadows, ruling captain Pat Cummins out of the Adelaide Test because he had stood close to somebody carrying the virus at a restaurant.

    Today, such neurosis has subsided, to the point where Wade, far from needing to isolate, is at liberty to take on England in a crucial group game.

    In one sense, the relaxations are to be welcomed. But in another, they expose the absurdity of what is still happening to Djokovic. The Serb remains scarred by his ordeal last winter, where he was incarcerated in a glorified Melbourne detention centre, then finally thrown out of Australia after the immigration minister ruled he could be a lightning rod for anti-vaxxers. It was, as the Australian Lawyers’ Alliance put it, an “Orwellian” decision that punished Djokovic more for the way he thought than the way he acted.

    Nine months on, Djokovic cannot escape the cycle of retribution. While the cancellation of his visa threatens a three-year ban from Australia, the recent change of government has encouraged his team to hope for clemency.

    That was until Karen Andrews, the shadow home affairs minister, declared: “It would be a slap in the face for those people in Australia who did the right thing if Djokovic were allowed back into the country, simply because he is a high-ranking tennis player with many millions of dollars.”

    It is exactly the same wearisome populism that you heard so much last winter from Scott Morrison’s administration, in which Andrews served.

    Djokovic simply became a whipping boy for a government restless to show that its uncompromising border policies applied for everybody. But it has always been a fallacy, this idea that Australia makes no exceptions when it comes to COVID.

    As today’s scenes at the Melbourne Cricket Ground will highlight, it is one rule for Wade and quite another for Djokovic, the nation’s convenient pariah.
