    African countries leading the way

    a/ Pandemic Treaty

    WHO Pandemic Treaty HALTED by 47 African Countries

    Interesting turn around. Thank you Africa to stepping down and buying us some time

    Nevertheless, our Government has committed Australia to fund the WHO for new pandemics.

    “Mr Chalmers said Australia was pleased to be able to play its part in the new fund.”

    You’re quite correct – i went to a night club probably twice in the early 1970s with a couple of friends and found the collection of drunk noisy fuckwits was not to my liking. Never went back.

    Time has come to establish an Anti-Globalist Alliance
    by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, addressing a Reawaken America Rally in Salem, Oregon
    https://cairnsnews.org/2022/06/28/time-has-come-to-establish-an-anti-globalist-alliance/

    We have tolerated the destruction of the family, we have endured the placing of the true God on an equal footing with idols, we have allowed billions of innocent people to be killed by abortion, we have allowed our children to be corrupted with immorality, pornography, the corruption of gender theory and LGBT ideology. We have allowed our rulers to use freedom not to serve God and the common good but to worship Satan and spread sin and vice. We have believed that if we left others free to act against the natural and divine law, they would in turn leave us free to be honest and good citizens. We fell into a huge deception, because our tolerance towards evil has today necessarily developed into society’s intolerance for the good.

    Just finished watching pt 1 of 2 pt doco House of Maxwell. Much so far about dad, Robert and sons and their naughty financial dealings but just a few minutes from the end they begin to talk about Jeff Epstein and Ghislaine, though without mentioning their court cases. Very cagey about when they met but do mention the rumours that she was procuring young girls for him as far back as 1993, when he was 40. Ghis paid a singer/songwriter to write an insiders song for the birthday bash. It goes like this –
    “Poor Jeffrey Epstein is 40, oy vey!
    Life must be tough, his hair is already so grey
    He sure looks older but it’s clear from his smile
    The older he gets, the more juvenile
    Ghislaine is lavishing him with her affection
    She claims he has 24-hour erections
    He taught at Dalton, the naughty boy blushes
    To think of all the schoolgirls and all of their crushes”

    Songwriter says Ghis was insistent on having certain lines and innuendos in the song.
    Naturally, being SBS, there’s only one picture of Jeff in the company of the rich and powerful. Can you guess which 45th POTUS that was? Next episode Thurs evening.

    Another one in the media who completely fails to understand the US constitution and the role of the SC Justices:

    Samantha Armytage has delivered a scathing response to the news that the US Supreme Court has overturned a landmark legal decision which granted citizens the constitutional right to access abortions.

    The former Sunrise star joined the chorus of international outrage by re-posting a widely-circulated image of the nine Supreme Court Justices, which had the words “F**k you” written across the chests of each of those who voted to overturn the ruling.

    Above newest Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, was written: “And really f**k you”.

    How Australia’s population has changed:
    Latest Census data provides revealing insight into who we are as a nation

    Christianity is still the highest reported religion in Australia with over 40 per cent of responses to this question nominating as Christians or providing a Christian denomination as their answer.

    “However, this has decreased by 8 percentage points since 2016, nearly half of those who reported a Christian religious affiliation reported they were Catholic.

    “The Census has seen a growth of over 50 per cent of people reporting they’re Hindus in line with migration from India, 2.7 per cent of the population in fact are Hindus, and Islam is our second largest religion at 3.2 per cent of the population.”

    While the number of Christians in this country is decreasing, another race is increasing. In a decade, the two will be at parity.

    The decade after that will be similar to this.

    For many in the West, secularism is their religion. They are doing well enough on the material front, they don’t need God in their lives.

    I am Catholic …. but I support a woman’s right to discuss with her doctor and decide.

    Abbie Chatfield

    “I remember not sleeping the night before the procedure, worried that I had missed the cut-off date, and I would have to carry a child to term. I was 23, and had a decent job, but I did not want a child, and that was reason enough. It wasn’t an easy decision but it was the right decision.”

    Stevie Nicks – hot but crazy. Up there on the matrix.

  81. Black Ball says:

    Anyone else catch Chris Bowen yesterday at the National Press Club? Terry McCrann did. His opinion:

    “There’s one huge and dangerously potent exception to the ‘Labor starting cautiously’ theme I argue yesterday.
    This is the Minister for Climate Change and Energy Chris Bowen.
    Coming into office to be faced immediately with the biggest energy crisis in Australian history – with prices of both electricity and gas going through the roof and with the very real threat of actual electricity blackouts and also gas shortages at the same time – what did Bowen do?
    Simply, instructively and ominously, a combination of absolutely nothing and doubling down on the very cocktail of drift and the killing off of our gas and real electricity generation that has caused the mess we are already in and has taken us right to the edge of a truly cataclysmic cliff. Bowen, in the privacy of his delusions, undoubtedly thought he was given an agenda-setting landmark speech to the National Press Club in Canberra on Wednesday. It was in fact a mess of sludge and – clearly to Bowen, utterly uncomprehending-contradiction.
    He ruled out banning future coal and gas projects, but said he would not approve anything that was ‘inconsistent with our mandate’. That’s a mandate which effectively totally bans certainly coal fired power stations and is all but incompatible with gas fired power stations.
    Does anyone seriously think this Labor government and this ‘Energy’ Minister is going to even grudgingly approve far less aggressively push for either coal or gas?
    I put ‘Energy’ in quotation marks because it is seriously important to note that Bowen is the ‘Climate Change and Energy minister – not the other way round. This government has made it officially clear that the main policy objectives and focus is on Climate Change. It is officially not on Energy. Not on actually securing energy for 26 million Australians – far less, securing the energy at the cheapest possible price and reliably and without rationing. That is secondary.
    That in itself is disturbing enough in a generalised sense. But putting the preference for Climate Change over Energy in the hands of Bowen makes it far worse, for he is the very worst combination of ambition unmatched by ability and rather petulant enthusiasms. He’s not one that takes even discussion far less contradiction well.”
