Mummy… they are being mean to me


During the past week there has been some attention focussed on the new campaign site: ATTACK WATCH… I am not going to link to a Soros funded site. The purpose of the site is for people to report their neighbours if they say anything wrong about Duh Won. It is a re-run of Fight the Smears. As you can imagine the site is backed by none other than Soros. According to one source the site references pieces from Media Matters as a response to comments about Østupid.

The first thing to note is that such a site invites totalitarianism. It is a really appalling idea that such a site should exist. However, conservative sites are turning this around, and they are having a lot of fun. Hillbuzz is one of the sites where they are reporting on the tweets to the attackwatch Tweet account which are quite literally making a mockery of the whole thing. Then Hitler got in on the act.

If it was not bad enough that you have a whole industry determined to make even the slightest criticism a matter of race, imagine what it is like in Australia when the little whiners from GETUP (probably Soros funded) the Marxist Watermelons aka the Green Party and the Marxist members of the ALP start whining that the red-haired witch (do substitute that w for a b), is being bullied.

I kid you not about the Dullard. She is really terrible. Thanks to her policies more than 12000 boat people have attempted to arrive in Australia. During the John Howard years there was a total of 288 “refugees” who landed in Australia. The policies of the Howard government worked, but the Dullard was responsible for the dismantling of those policies. The Dullard also instituted the BER program which is a cash cow for builders involved in building school halls or canteens or other small spaces at schools around the country at grossly inflated prices. Then there is: NBN (spending estimated at more than $50billion), cash for clunkers, set top boxes for pensioners at triple the price in the local supermarket, the pink batts program (a good idea if you want to set your house on fire – several people have been killed)… and the list of incompetence keeps getting longer.

However, let me address the really big scandal that has been unfolding in this country, but so far it has not managed to dislodge the MP who is at the heart of at least a part of the scandal. The Health Services Union provided an individual to give support to Østupid, and the person was paid by the HSU. I suspect that this is against your own campaign legislation but that one is a separate scandal.

There are two scandals that need to be mentioned. The first one involves Craig Thomson a former member of the Health Services Union. He used union funds to buy his way into winning a seat in the Federal Parliament (I am cutting that part of the story short), but he also used a credit card to purchase the services of prostitutes. On top of that he used the credit card on overseas trips and withdrew more than $100,000 in union funds. The wicked witch says that she has confidence in this particular shyster MP. This leads into the other brewing scandal: “What did she know and when did she know it” which concerns the Dullard herself – the woman, who has never been married (and who had an affair with a married man when she entered the Parliament) shacked up with another union man by the name of Bruce Wilson who was an official in the AWU. This particular man from West Australia had dealings with the Dullard in her job at the law firm Slater and Gordon. He got the Dullard to open an account that had the name AWU Welfare account. Wilson was a standover man and he funnelled funds that he got by standing over building site managements into that account. He purchased a house with those funds. The issues to consider here is whether or not there was a conflict of interest when Dullard was having sex with Wilson and representing him at Slater and Gordon. Her claim that she was young and naive does not fly because she was over 30 when she was having sex with the man and dealing with him at Slater and Gordon.

The current boyfriend of the witch who also occupies the  Lodge is a stupid man by the name of Tim Mathieson. Poor little Timmy thinks that the Dullard is being bullied by the conservative members of the Australian media. Mind you, there are not many conservative members of the Australian media, but Andrew Bolt is one of them. Timmy has his panties in a wad and he thinks that the Dullard is being “bullied”, just because she is a woman. I think it was also mentioned that women are harsher on the witch and that Dullard is being bullied by the Big Boys in town. What a load of codswallop!!

The women who voted “skirt” in this instance should be ashamed of themselves because Dullard has been so incompetent that she has given women in leadership a very bad name.

You can see the parallels between Østupid and this witch. Both of them are Marxists. Both of them usurped power. Both of them are lawyers, or at least went to law school. Dullard probably has the better working record. Both of them are incompetent fools. They are like two peas in a pod. However, the worst of the similarity is the attitude of both of them when it comes to forcing upon the people something that they do not want. In your case it was Abominablecare. In our case it is a tax on the air that we breathe, despite the fact that such a tax will doing nothing to change the climate!!  The legislation will be introduced next week. According to one source the same tactics are being used where there is not enough time to examine what is being put forward before a vote is taken. Talk about a nasty form of deja vu!!

Fire!!


We live in Canberra, on the north side of the city. We live very close to Mitchell. We did not hear the explosion which is really surprising. We heard nothing, no sirens… absolutely nothing.

We woke this morning to hear a strange voice talking on the radio, but he has been absolutely superb with his commentary. Mark Parton has been very professional.

Since we live in an elevated position we have a very good view of the fire and smoke billowing from our place.

I took some photos, but not at the time where I saw the flames leaping, which was before 7.00 this morning.

Vindication


Whilst nothing is certain in Libya, this news report is vindication of my own position as regards to who might be funneling weapons to terrorists. This comes with a bit of caution that in reality anything is possible, meaning that some people who are Islamists could indeed forward weapons to Al Qaeda. I will not discount that possibility.

Since I first heard the rumours that weapons were being transported and the implication for those rumours was that the Islamists in the opposition forces were taking the few weapons that they possessed and were passing them to Al Qaeda or to Hamas, depending upon which version was being spouted, I was smelling a bit of a rat. The opposition forces had few weapons and what they found they were using. On the other hand, Daffy Duck had a large cache of weapons dotted around the countryside. The sources were claiming that the weapons convoys had gone through Chad and Niger. Really? What these sources did not report is that Daffy Duck is allied to both Chad and Niger. What they also did not report is that the border between Libya and Niger closest to Sirte, a Gadhafi stronghold.

At the same time there have been rumours about weapons moving across the Algerian border. Really? Algeria is another Gadhafi ally, and in fact one of the “news” agencies that has been used by people hostile to the Libyan opposition was one that was tied to Algeria. The report that I read pretty much summed it up for me as simply pro-Gadhafi propaganda. If that report was true then the Algerians were firing upon those “Islamists” if they crossed the border. I doubt that they were able to send any convoys via that route.

In my view this led me to conclude that if anyone was smuggling weapons out of Libya, then it had to be Gadhafi and his goons that were doing the smuggling. (my conclusion could always be wrong but it seems that for the moment such a conclusion is vindicated).

In the past few weeks there has been mention of missing weapons: missiles, chemical weapons etc. Considering that the opposition would not know the location of the chemical weapons, it is a sure bet that if such weapons are missing then Gadhafi and his henchmen are behind their disappearance.

Here is a snippet from the report:

Jeffrey Feltman, the US assistant secretary of state and the most senior international visitor to arrive in Tripoli since the fall of Col Gaddafi, said Washington was concerned about the spread of both conventional and non-conventional weapons.

He said he had people working “quietly” with the National Transitional Council particularly on the hunt for surface-to-air missiles, of which more than 15,000 are said to be unaccounted for from Col Gaddafi’s weapons dumps, and chemical weapon precursors.

“It’s a potential risk not only to Libya but to the region,” he said.

The rebel military official in charge of securing Tripoli International Airport told The Daily Telegraph yesterday his men were scouring an area of more than 30 kilometres for missing weapons.

The Libyan authorities and their western backers are nervous about allowing the airport to reopen to scheduled passenger flights until they can be sure there can be no threat from any SAMS still in the area. There is also the fear that they may be sold to terrorist groups who could use them to target civilian planes anywhere.

“The policy of Gaddafi was to scatter these missiles through civilian homes,” the commander, Mukhtar al-Akdar, said. “We have great difficulty when we try to collect them as some of the local people are very pro-Gaddafi.”

He said he had cleared “70-80 per cent” of the relevant area and found a number of SAMS already.

 

Egypt – was it Islamists who stormed the Israeli embassy?


The report at News.com.au indicates that the protesters were not members of Muslim Brotherhood. This particular report is without the hype that I have seen elsewhere on the Internet. It gives the facts about what happened, that protesters who had been at Tahrir Square broke away and headed to the Israeli Embassy. They had sledgehammers and they hacked away at the walls that were put in place to secure the building. Roughly 30 of them got inside the building and then distributed papers onto the street. Of concern to me is that these people were chanting: onward to Jerusalem, blah, blah.

According to this report, the cause of this extraordinary activity was an incident near the border of the Gaza strip where some Egyptians had been killed. Likewise some Israelis had been killed. The kicker here is that it looks as if this had nothing to do with Muslim Brotherhood. It seems that the individuals involved are sympathetic to the Palestinian cause.

As you are aware Egypt has co-operated with Israel with regard to attempting to keep arms out of the Gaza strip. The incident that took place has not really been explained. There has been no apology over the latest of the rockets that were fired into Israel from the Gaza strip either.

If Muslim Brotherhood has disavowed the protest as well as the action at the Israeli Embassy, then it seems that rather than Islamists at work, this is the handiwork of the LEFT WING communists from Egypt.

As we have noted in the past, it seems that certain Communists within the USA have had more than a passing interest in causing disruption in Egypt. I refer of course to Bernadine Dorhn, William Ayers, and the luvvies from Code Pink. The people who have been attempting to get into the Gaza strip have been the Marxists, not the likes of Muslim Brotherhood.

I find this very curious since CAIR is an offshoot of Muslim Brotherhood, or is it? I am wondering if CAIR is being sponsored by some other party. Members of CAIR have been behind some pretty nasty stuff in the USA, and they are linked to other groups such as the Holy Land Foundation, which was taking money for Palestininian activists in that region.

Perhaps we need to have another look at the activities of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Are they linked to Iran, or putting that another way, is Iran somewhere in the background waiting to pounce if Muslim Brotherhood rises as a political force in Egypt?

Something else on my mind here concerns Mr. Potato Head who has been very quiet lately. As you are aware this is the man who claimed that there were no WMDs in Iraq, which is not true, and he also made false statements about the WMDs in Iran. His wife is an Iranian who is the daughter of a prominent member of the Iranian government. It is obvious that Mr. Potato Head, if he got into power in Iran would push Egypt into some form of alliance with Iran. Mr. Potato Head wanted to be allied to Muslim Brotherhood, but it seems that they are not interested in him. Interesting.

What it looks like here is that Muslim Brotherhood joined in the original protests to oust Muburak, but have always had their own agenda. I think that was clear immediately after Muburak was sent into exile. However, it looks like there was some kind of immediate split between the two groups. Again it was quite obvious. What seems to be happening is that the Marxists want to keep protesting, but the Muslim Brotherhood are happy biding their time. Also, it appears that Muslim Brotherhood is not the same as the Salafists.  Here again we have that split based upom Islamic sectarianism. Muslim Brotherhood seems to be Shia oriented, and the Salafists (Al QAEDA) are Sunni in origin.

I think that demanding Muburak step down was the biggest Foreign Policy of the present USA administration. It was something that was a total botch from the time that the protests began. Egypt is a separate issue from that of Libya, especially when Østupid actually had very limited say on what was happening over there. He had more impact upon Egypt, than on Libya. In fact Østupid was reluctant to make a decision on the no-fly zone and he had to be pushed. (ALSO please note the way that this stupid individual is trying to big note himself on making the decision to go after Bin Laden. He has no shame. He is claiming that his advisors were against it, but from what has been passed on, it was Valerie Jarrett who was against it, and it was Leon Panetta who went ahead with the action, but just watch Østupid as he continues to lie in the hope that people will see him as some kind of hero – he is not anything of the kind).

Syria – proceed with caution


The Arab Spring is nothing more than an Arab nightmare. The latest outrage in Egypt is the break-in of the Israeli Embassy, which was stormed by around 30 activists. A special note here: there were about 300 who split off from the main group of protesters and who went to the Israeli embassy. They pounded at the brick fences that protected the embassy and they were successful in breaching the wall, however, only about 30 individuals entered the embassy. The signs for Egypt in my opinion remain bad. If this is an indication of the feelings of the general population, then Israel will become even more isolated.

The civil war in Libya is not over, but it continues with three towns holding out. According to the news reports the people of Bani Walid want an end to any confrontation, however Gadhafi and his sons left behind a small group of henchmen, who have been up on the roofs acting as snipers. The first action has come from pro-opposition forces within the town. No one has entered into Bani Walid. The situation at Sirte is far more extreme, and I have to add here that prayers are needed for the 300 who have been taken as hostage. The news item said that they were being herded into a village just outside of Sirte where they are being used as human shields. My prayer is that God will protect these Libyan citizens from evil.  At the same time several Loyalist generals have escaped into Niger. You know those missing weapons? I bet that those weapons accompanied those generals on the trip into Niger. On the other hand, it could be that the numbers are being exaggerated, or it could be that those weapons are now in the process of being used outside of Sirte, Bani Walid and Sabha. The best result possible will be the capture of Daffy Duck.

However, it is time to turn attention once more to the situation in Syria. For myself I cannot back Assad because of the crackdown against the people who have been for the most part unarmed individuals. Whilst it was possible to see differences between the protests in Egypt and the ones in Libya that led to the civil war, I consider the Syrian situation to be far from straight forward. I think what is turning me off the Syrian situation is the picutre of the women in their niquabs protesting. Now, it could be that I am ignorant with regard to the women’s situation in Syria – are they required by law to wear either the burqa or niquab, or is this a purely voluntary thing? When I see women in those things I shudder, because it implies that these are indeed extremists. (for the most part the women in Syria wore at most the abeya with a few opting for a burqa and yes Libya has Sharia law).

It seems to me that the situation in Syria is quite different from that in Libya, even though in both cases the regime dictator is acting in a very brutal manner, and both have offered the same excuses. Rather than concentrating on the protesters (I do not know enough about them), I want to concentrate upon the excuses given by Assad, and to point to the inconsistencies that are all too obvious.

A few months ago I became aware that there were members of the military in Syria who had defected rather than participate in the brutality being perpetrated by the regime. In one town, where Assad claimed that the people had been the killers, there was ample evidence to show that the military who had died were shot from behind as though they had been executed. The scene as described pointed to military being shot because they would not follow orders. However, Assad had been claiming that the “Al Qaeda” or “terrorists” had killed those people.

For years Gadhafi had been pulling the Al Qaeda stunt against those people opposed to him and Assad is using the same excuse to try and get away with his brutality.  The pair of them have been crying wolf for several years, using the West’s “crusade” against Al Qaeda as their excuse to stamp on the dissidents.  This is so, even though the dissidents in Syria are by no means innocent of wrong doing, and their allegiances are ill-defined. The Syrians have not come out as stongly pro-West like the dissident Libyan.

Another factor in Syria is the role of Iran, and especially the Iranian relationship with Assad. Iran has been using Syria as a satellite in its own fight against Israel. Iran has been financing Hamas and Hezbollah, and Iran has been using Syria as a satellite state, hence Iran has been able to conduct hostilities against the USA, as well as against Israel via Syria. Iran has also been active in Lebanon via Syria. On top of that there is evidence that Iranian revolutionary guards have been active in the brutal crackdowns upon the Syrian people.

It should be pointed out that Iran was supplying weapons to Gadhafi but they also supplied food and medicine to the NTC in Benghazi. There really is a common thread.

The Syrian has a potential to become very explosive, especially when a lot of the action has occurred on the border with Turkey. At one point it really looked like there could be an international incident. The Turks are simply trying to protect the people who have not done anything wrong.

It is difficult to respond to the Syrian problem because of the unknown factors, yet, one must be consistent and condemn the actions of Assad in the brutal manner he has been cracking down on the minority dissidents.

For the record, the Assad regime has connections with the Ba’ath party. He has had ties to Saddam Hussein. It is more than likely that those WMDs that actually existed in Iraq were moved across the border and into Syria (no questions asked).
