Senator Chandler calls out bias of AHRC on Women's rights.. Wink

Via Sen Chandler on social media:

Quote:The Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) says Australian women aren’t qualified to make submissions to its consultation on human rights.

Australian women who oppose male offenders in women’s prison or men in women’s sports are being blocked from submitting to the AHRC consultation on TGD Rights.

The AHRC says it only wants to hear from “subject-matter experts”. They’ve set up a protected platform for activists to call women bigots for standing up for single-sex sports and spaces.

Simply Marvelous Horse-pooh! Rolleyes 

As a footnote to this post off the 'Australia, ATSB and MH370' thread...

MH370 10 years on: Beaker the discredited village idiot??

...let me rehash the infamous Aunty Pru BLOG post 'Simply Marvelous Horse-pooh'... Wink :

Quote:[Image: 1416576716558.jpg]


Quote:SMH: The 57-year-old is helping solve what remains the greatest aviation mystery of all time: the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

This, all without any technical qualification (NFI in industry parlance). Doesn’t it therefore qualify (technically) as a ‘porky’? – in light of the Senate report of the Pel Air inquiry. I believe, some of the words used in Hansard transcript were: unreliable, disingenuous and untenable. Although industry further accords the “beyond all reason” approach as being directly attributable to “the team leader”. Yet our beloved Bea-cur can sit there; stuffing his now shaved face with spaghetti, intimating (in public) that ‘he’ (probably only he alone) will solve the MH 370 riddle: industry is overwhelmed andsimply says “it’s beyond all reason”.

Quote:SMH :As head of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, he is leading the search for the jet, concentrated deep in the southern Indian Ocean off the coast of Perth.

This ‘leading’ is done mind you, without any technical qualification (NFI in industry parlance). Doesn’t it therefore qualify (technically) as a ‘porky’? – in light of the Senate report into the Pel Air inquiry. I believe some of the words used in Hansard were: unreliable, disingenuous and untenable, industrysimply says “it’s beyond all reason”.

Quote:SMH : “Sometimes I’m tempted to say ‘oh yes, we’ve found it we’re just not telling you’,” he says. He quickly clarifies that he’s joking.

They do say his water cooler nickname is “laughing boy”. Oh yes, the famous Dolan sense of humour at work, a pawky wit and a fine sense of the ridiculous”; dry as sticks. Industry simply says “it’s beyond all reason”.

Oh if the gods the power would give us, to see ourselves as others see us”.

Quote:SMH : Since the disappearance, conspiracy theorists have been busy trying to solve the mystery themselves

I wonder why they (all 19,513,305 looking at the humble PPRuNe) would bother; when we have Martin, he of beyond all reason, showing the way. Industry simply says “it’s beyond all reason”. No, it’s all good with Guru Beacur leading the way and guiding a happy, clappy crew of expert accident investigators to Nirvana….Mind you, it’s not that they’ll do very many, what with the cost of essential ‘admin’ to juggle and all.

Quote:SMH : It’s because you’ve got this big mystery and everyone wants to know the answer and everyone wants to help. It’s unhelpful, for the sake of the families more than anything else, in the sense that it has the potential to undermine confidence in what we are doing,” he says.

Well, that’s fair. What with Martin, being such a bloody Whizz bang, highly qualified investigator – it’s just an insult to a fine, instigative mind to have these tendentious bloggers ‘assisting’. ‘Amateur’ experts; are, like Annexe 13, surplus to requirements; and with such a gifted, qualified investigator at the helm, tendentious ‘bloggers’ – and all associated riff raff need not apply.

Quote:SMH – The Boeing 777 vanished with 239 people on board en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March. There has been no sign of it since.

Finally – truth and reality in one small; but, oh so sweet paragraph. Bravo.

Quote:SMH : He opts for the spaghetti alla carbonara and I choose the tortellini di zucca.

And you managed to keep it down?. Oh, well done that leading light of journalistic clap trap.

Quote:SMH: Commitment to the public service has been a consistent feature of his life.

“True dat” edit …Commitment to the public service, and only the public service has been a consistent feature of his life.

Quote:SMH – The position marked the start of 35 years in the Commonwealth public service, in which he has added various corporate management roles, including chief executive of Comcare and Chief Finance Officer in the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.

Which, of course is why he is so well equipped to lead a crack team of clerical staff to assist; this, despite the 200 year deficiency in ‘accident’ investigations skills; no matter. Bea-cur will come through with swimming colours, once again. Just as he did in the Pel Air inquiry – covered in glory, the praises of the Senate ringing in his heroic ears and the total, complete and utter support of the aviation industry which, by the by, cannot say enough good things about this doyen of safety, this pillar of the beyond all ducking reason model for accident investigation.

Aye. No doubt the MH 370 families will sleep much better now, knowing that Beacur can manage ‘spaghetti”; the fish balls were (of course) – imported from Norfolk Island, in commemoration of the outstanding efforts, made on behalf of air safety.

Quote:SMH : “I had a moment of revelation in front of a high school English class in Coffs Harbour as I did practice teaching. I looked at them, they looked at me and we realised this was never going to work,” Dolan says.

What a Déjà vu moment, as history repeats; like a bad prawn. The music? – Oh, that’s ‘Believe it, if you like’: played by the public service string quartet (conducted by?) yes; you guessed it – Our hero.

Sorry boys and girls; I have to stop here, can’t type more, for the tears. Whether they be of laughter (only slightly hysterical); or, of sorrow (for those lost at sea) is uncertain. But, such is life; and, I may add, life is such. I believe I could go on, to the end of the SMH offering, but reality calls and tempus fugit (not to mention tempers).

Dinner Minnie and get that bloody cat off my chair.

How do you spell genius? – Ayup, Guinness is correct. Where’s my Choc frog…?…[Image: eusa_clap.gif]

Carbon Capture Storage in the GAB | Pauline Hanson's Please Explain

Anthony Albanese's obsession with Labor's net-zero climate targets means he's willing to do anything to meet them, no matter the risk.

He's even prepared to risk the future of the Great Artesian Basin by turning it into a dumping ground for power station waste emissions.

How will he do this? Why would anyone do this? What kind of moron would even consider this? You'll just have to tune in to find out.

How do I loathe thee??

Via X & Politicom: &

Quote:Labor, how do I loathe thee?

John Mikkelsen Politicom May 5, 2024

I'm Not alone in my surprise that Anthony Albanese’s Labor Party continues to scrape together 30 to 32 per cent primary support in recent opinion polls.

To borrow the latest trending legal term – which perfectly fits Labor’s political own-goals and stuff-ups – this government is an “omnishambles” from Albanese down. Yes, Prime Minister, I blame you!

Along with your Immigration Minister Andrew Giles, Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil, Attorney General Mark Dreyfus, Foreign Affairs Minister Penny Wong, Climate & Energy Minister Chris Bowen and the rest of your hapless acolytes.


You brought this into the spotlight when you reduced a young woman, Sarah Williams, to tears at a domestic violence rally in Canberra last week.

You’d claimed to those assembled that you’d not been invited to speak.

Ms Williams, who organised the event, stood beside you weeping and repeating “that’s a lie”.

But you turned a tin ear and continued speaking against hecklers in the crowd – who apparently didn’t want to hear your platitudes.

The 1980’s hit What About Me might remain high on your Spotify playlist but, really, this is not at all about you.

The next day you side-stepped Ms Williams’ claims – but audio emerged of you telling her “I’m the Prime Minister”.

She claimed you had added: “I run this country”

I’m reminded of a quote by legendary British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher: “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are – you aren’t!”

If you need to tell people that you’re the Prime Minister, Mr Albanese, you’ve already failed.

Even your cheering national broadcaster, the ABC, found your performance wanting.

ABC presenter Annabel Crabb wrote: “The world is full of imponderables at the moment. And for Australian women, you can add a new one to the list: ‘How long is it going to take for us to get a prime minister whose response to reasonable female anger isn’t to trip spectacularly over his own tackle?’

“The footage of Anthony Albanese attempting to cope with the febrile environment outside Parliament House at Sunday’s domestic violence rally is nearly unwatchable…

Many of us despair at how badly you and your ministers run things.

Take the ever-increasing cost-of-living and housing debacles largely due to your unachievable and costly green energy policies and an immigration Ponzi scheme to shore up an economy slipping towards recession.

You’ve said you will cut record immigration levels which, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, saw arrivals increase by 73 per cent to 737,000 last year.

But a new monthly record of 105,460 arrivals in February this year tells us otherwise.

No doubt the growing number of frustrated home buyers and renters who can’t afford the limited supply – along with the homeless sleeping in cars or camped in tents – will be anxiously awaiting any change in circumstances.

My advice to them is: “don’t hold your breath.”


Then there’s our worsening personal security – particularly for the elderly, women, girls (especially those in outback communities) and our Jewish brothers and sisters.

We’ve even seen young children encouraged to call for an “intifada” (violent uprising) and chant “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”.

Meanwhile, authorities – including university chancellors and vice chancellors – turn a blind eye. Is this because it’s “hate speech” they (and presumably you) agree with?

Your highly paid eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, ignores the racist rants by Islamic hate preachers, but then bans a video of an alleged terrorist knife attack by a teenager on a Christian Bishop in Sydney. Because it’s “too violent”?

Even the victim, Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel, believes the video should be available for anyone to see.

The head of X, Elon Musk, has resisted your moves to ban it internationally, despite a tirade of personal abuse from you and your ministers.

Again, your usual ally – the ABC’s left-wing Media Watch – has turned against you.

Presenter Paul Barry actually agrees with Musk, the Bishop and even Right-wing commentator Andrew Bolt (shock horror!).

More recently, we had the brutal attack and robbery of an elderly WA woman, Ninette Simons, allegedly by one of the 151 immigrant detainees released into the community – by you, no less.

Those who you released included 37 sex offenders and 72 violent offenders – oh, and at least one or more murderers!

Your ministers’ original claim that your government had opposed this release was subsequently found to be a lie.

The alleged attacker had been arrested and released back into the community no less than three times, including a few days before the alleged attack.

He had also not been required to wear an ankle bracelet. Yet you blamed your so-called independent Community Protection Board for the decision – even though your minister had ultimate say and responsibility.

For days after the attack on Ninette Simons, ministers Giles and O’Neil ducked for cover, prompting a quip from National Party Senator Bridget McKenzie: “It’s easier to find ex-detainees than the responsible ministers.”

As if all this isn’t enough to turn most of us off, we have the spectacle of you splashing taxpayer funds in support of highly questionable, virtue-signalling private business start-ups.

These include a billion dollars for a quantum computer facility in Brisbane proposed by a company based in the US (PsiQuantum) and pushed by Labor-mate lobbyists.

Queensland Labor Premier Steven Miles is also on board.


This follows another billion dollars for solar panel manufacturing in the NSW Hunter Valley that billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes and multi-millionaire ex-PM Malcolm Turnbull apparently couldn’t risk with their own funds.

Not to mention the green hydrogen pipe dreams in Gladstone, Townsville and elsewhere – you name it.

If it’s claimed in the name of “net-zero”, you and Chris ‘Blackout’ Bowen will back anything – except reliable power.

Nuclear remains on your government’s banned list despite growing support in Australia, and its proliferation in other nations, which recognise that “renewables” don’t align with reality nor reliability.

Yet, it’s okay to purchase three nuclear submarines under AUKUS, which will be berthed and serviced in Australian ports.
Go figure.

Finally, to plagiarise Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s famous poem: How do I Love Thee.
To sum up your government’s performance, just change one crucial word.
How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways.

I loathe you, Labor, to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach, when feeling out of sight.

On the same theme Stan Grant's wife nails it... Wink

Plus from (Legend) Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, via the AP email chains:

Quote:Dear P2,

I guess the tennis isn’t on because finally the Prime Minister has made it back out to Alice Springs.

He’s announcing yet another big money government package but of course you and I know, lack of money isn’t the problem.

It’s what’s happening with the funding and programs that already exist.

Last year during the crisis of crime in Alice, the government announced a $250 million package to help after his visit.

But that didn't stop the riots we saw just a few weeks ago.

So now he's showing up to announce another $20 million.

That means the government is now spending some $320 million on programs in central Australia but we’re still seeing violence, we’re still seeing school attendance down, and we’re still seeing riots and destruction.

It’s not a pretty picture and even though the PM has shown up to visit, there’s still no evidence he gets it.

Both the Mayor of Alice Springs, Matt Patterson, and the independent Member for Araluen Robyn Lambley have called on an audit of where this money is going and they've both been ignored by the PM.

As Mayor Patterson said:

Quote:“Mr Albanese should really consider an audit of the Indigenous service providers he is funding, to hold them accountable because we are spending millions and millions of dollars and we are not getting any outcomes.”

And Robyn Lambley goes further:
Quote:“We all know this isn't an easy fix, but when you come in and you slap a bit of money on the table, let's see where it's going, and let's make sure that things are being delivered to make a difference. Because in another 30 years time, I suspect we'll still be talking about the same problems if there's not greater accountability for every dollar that's spent in this space.”

The fact is: we need to know where the money is going. Where are the outcomes and where is the accountability? If we don’t know, nothing will change.

But dodging accountability is standard operating procedure for this Prime Minister.

I’m sure you saw the awkward and troubling footage of the Prime Minister attending the women’s rally over the weekend.

While he’s tried to avoid talking about it, there’s no question he arrogantly upset the rally organisers and made himself the story, rather than the important issue of domestic violence.

But the bigger irony is that, just as he arrogantly said to the organisers, he is the Prime Minister and he’s the person who can actually deal with the issue of domestic violence.

Instead he decided to throw a tantrum about not being able to speak.

He keeps insisting to anyone who’ll listen that he’s the Prime Minister but he keeps refusing to do the job of a Prime Minister.

It’s cowardly and I’m not going to relent in holding him accountable.

It’s time for REAL solutions.

Not just another media opportunity from a PM who refuses to do his job.

Yours for REAL solutions,
