Energy Assistance Program proves dud energy policy in first place

Australia is home to the cheapest energy sources in the world yet we have the highest electricity prices. For the Coalition to introduce the Energy Assistance Programmers (EAP) ahead of the election says how ridiculously poor the policies surrounding energy are to have to introduce it in the first place. No matter what Australia does on the renewables front our impact on global temperatures on a worst case basis are near as makes no difference zero by 2100.

Why do we continue to hobble ourselves by making our industries less competitive and saddle consumers with nose bleed electricity? SA & Vic already give us the beta testing grounds to prove that renewables are unreliable, inefficient and impractical. The idea they are cheaper than baseload is utter rubbish given at their best, renewables operate at 20-25% of stated capacity generation. Which means they’re 4-5x more expensive per output claimed.

In any event, providing people with power credits just shows how ideology has overridden sensible economics. Look forward to higher energy bills and buyer’s remorse if energy policy seeks to create more of the very shortcomings that have made themselves so abundantly clear. This is willfully irresponsible.

Don’t do the crime if you don’t wanna pay $130k overtime

Good news. The City of Chicago sent the US$130,000 worth of overtime spent by the Chicago Police Department to investigate the hoax to Jussie Smollett giving him one week to pay or risk further legal action. Is it the job of the Chicago taxpayers to fund Jussie’s DIY hate crime hoax career enhancement and self promotion program? What utter contempt shown by Smollett’s representatives to demand that the Mayor & Chicago Police Department apologise for “dragging an innocent man’s name through the mud.” Thankfully the FOIA request to the CPD meant they could release all of the documents before the suppression order was put in place. Just desserts.

President Trump is absolutely correct to get the FBI & DOJ involved in this case to look at how such a ridiculous outcome could ever come to be. How does a First Assistant State Attorney with 30 years in the role openly say Smollett was guilty then drop all 16 felony charges? Now his excuse is that the SA office is more focused on combating violent crimes.

Farage: “do you really want me back here?”

Brilliant speech as usual. How on cue were the EU incumbents ready to jeer his remark of “do you really want me back here?” on the basis he recontests the EU elections if the Brexit delay is extended. Of interest note that the EU has published a “No Deal” scenario which does not seek to sink Britain.

As a message to the spineless politicians in Westminster, just get on with what you’ve been instructed to do rather than tell us that you know better. I’ve tried this with my wife and it works wonders.

On a 2nd referendum CM believes the Brits would vote Leave by a bigger margin.

Jim Jefferies – what goes around comes around

Aussie comedian Jim Jefferies shot to stardom on the back of his “gun control’ skit post the Parkland school shooting last year. He now has a regular slot on US TV.

Comedy cuts across almost limitless bounds. It triggers some and makes others convulse with laughter. We should accept that. To give Jefferies his due, he can be very funny. Usually vulgar but pointed.

However Jefferies deliberate misrepresentation of Jewish vlogger, Avi Yemini, was reprehensible. Yemini’s responses were edited and cut in ways to answer totally different questions that were asked in an attempt to smear him. It was unethical on every level.

The irony of the “hidden recording” taken by Yemini was that Jeffries himself was exposed for the very anti-Islamic remarks he accused his guest of. He even scribbled a mock drawing of Mohammed and agreed with much of what he criticized Yemini for. Hypocrite. How ironic that the comedian who thought he was interviewing a total dummy now looks the fool.

Regardless of whether one likes Yemini or who he represents or not, it does not give anyone, even a comedian, the right to smear in such a duplicitous and sanctimonious manner. Yemini warned Jefferies he may invite death threats for his blasphemous actions.

Serves him right. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Chicago PD gets its sweet revenge on Smollett

Full credit to the Chicago Police Department for releasing the truth on Jussie Smollett before the Cook County judge was able to close the case, citing a FOIA request. Where on earth did the State Attorney’s office think justice was served when they believed Smollett was guilty but dropped all 16 felony charges anyway? How could anyone buy the First Assistant SA saying publicly that Smollett was not exonerated when his slate has been wiped clean? How ironic that Michelle Obama’s former chief-of-staff called the State Attorney Kim Foxx to discuss the concern of the Smollett family. Foxx may have recused herself on conflict of interest grounds, however the end result certainly gives rise to suspicions around calling in favours. How did a botched hoax become deserved of a suppression order?

If you want the truth behind the innocent Smollett, the CPD has provided their hard work in the following two files.

Part 1

Part 2

One of the funniest areas surrounds the Nigerians’ car breaking down after the purchase of the DIY hate crime kit and having to push it out of the parking lot.

Maybe Subway should dedicate some sandwiches to Smollett – Foot long Pinocchio, Jussie’s Jerk Chicken, Carved Turkey and Bleach…#Mugger hat meatball. How well do these sandwiches have to be prepared to escape a staged attack unscathed?

Project Veritas uncovers the WTF at CNN

Project Veritas has uncovered the shameless editorial procedures at CNN. Then the likes of Jim Acosta and Don Lemon wonder why they’re accused of fake news when the producers admit that the Russia collusion newsflow was “mostly bullsh1t.” Even CNN’s CEO said that they report on the facts as they know them because they’re not investigators. I guess that makes it ok then…
