What a farce. These are the responses given by senior officials in the Victoria government when questioned over who was responsible for ordering private security guards which led to the hotel quarantine outbreak fiasco.
These are the very people who expect Victorians to put trust in their ability to execute.
Selective memories aka lies.
No doubt when Premier Dan Andrews testifies at this enquiry, he’ll have forgotten too.
Any other state premier would be forced to resign over this debacle. Watch a willing media skip over this blithering incompetence and praise Dan Andrews for bringing forward the timeline to reopen the economy from lockdown because of his stewardship which he will end reneging on.
Let’s not forget the omnibus the premier is trying to ram through parliament which will allow unqualified public servants to arrest and detain Victorian residents indefinitely on the grounds of suspicion alone. No facts. Just a hunch they think one could be up to no good.
“A Man named Harold, a President named Barack and a Vice President named Joe.
This summarizes how most liberals view the US military:
Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On Aug. 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist.
He was returned to America with full military honors.
It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of General and Flag officers killed in the line of duty.
Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General Casey killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. Vice President Biden wasn’t there either. Neither was the Secretary of Defense.
Flags were not even lowered half-mast.
Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri.
Brown was at best a young thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone. Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown’s funeral!
Neither Obama nor Biden would attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug.
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.
When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.
But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, the Obama/Biden administration ordered all flags be flown at half-mast.
There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course.
A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
No wonder most “REAL” Americans hold Obama in such contempt, especially members of our Military.
And Biden is now expounding on how great the Obama/Biden administration was.
“Meghan has been blown away by the incredible work Patrisse has done. She thinks her story needs to be told — and she would love to be the one to make it.”
Harry & Meghan said, with respect to the Netflix deal, “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope…As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
We’re not quite sure how a hateful ideology that wants to destroy traditional family values and capitalism are the sorts of thing that align to a couple raising a kid in a multi million dollar mansion.
We’ll be more inspired when Meghan gives up all the perks, moves to subsidized project housing while giving away Archie to be raised by faceless community leaders to fulfill Cullors’ socialist utopia. We thought not.
It’s times like these that residents in Rochester, NY probably wished they had an NRA banner skewered into their front lawn instead of one filled with pacifist woke messages.
Several weeks ago we were appalled to see BLM activists shine torches through bedroom windows and yell obscenities in the middle of the night in suburbia. Now these thugs are climbing onto properties to intimidate the occupants.
After BLM activists ransacked local restaurants and causing diners to flee, they went to their homes and intimidated them there.
How can anyone in their right mind vote for those who have openly supported these “mostly peaceful” protestors? We reckon BLM is doing far more lasting damage to businesses that coronavirus lockdowns ever could.
It seems that gaslighting knows no bounds. Some Victorians want to pay homage to Victorian Premier Dan Andrews with virtual claps despite his utter failure in handling lockdown. The virtual claps forum reads:
Updates (including current growth factor) will be provided on a regular basis. Let’s keep doing the right thing to bring down the growth factor.“
Kim Jong Un would blush at such a show from his loyal peasants.
Never mind Dan Andrews and team presided over the most incompetent handling of the pandemic by any state government by far.
Where the facts reveal the Andrews’ team are the last people that should be in charge of anything. 26% of the nation’s population and over 88% of the total death toll from coronavirus.
Where Victoria Police arrested and handcuffed a pregnant women who could face jail time of up to 15 years for incitement.
Where BLM protests took place with next to no enforcement of the lockdown laws. The three organizers were given fines but nothing more. Double standards.
Where private security guards – put in charge of quarantine hotels – slept with the people they were ordered to professionally look after. The same guards that were given a quick course in diversity instead of training in dealing with coronavirus.
Perhaps these brainwashed Victorians who want to make empty gestures on social media may think differently when they discover that the Andrews’ government will deliver what socialism always does – shared misery.
You have to hand it to the Victoria Police for making absolutely no effort in trying to politely reason with the people they are trying to arrest. Yesterday, Premier Dan Andrews denied seeing the video of the arrest of a pregnant mother in front of her kids. No doubt he will claim he hasn’t seen this video either. In what world did the Vic Police think a pregnant woman was a flight risk to warrant hand cuffing her?
James Bartolo is the second person in two days to be charged for ‘incitement’ thanks to the police state that is now Victoria. Does the Victorian government fear sedition? Must it crush those who seek to oppose its power trip? Is Dan Andrews enjoying his daily pressers a bit too much?
Bartolo uploaded a video discussing how he intends to go to the Saturday ‘Freedom Day‘ rally and encouraging others to stand up for their rights.
So even though Bartolo hasn’t physically done anything, Victoria Police rounded up a normally law abiding citizen for questioning the very powers granted by despotic politicians that should never have been granted them in the first place.
We would imagine that a growing number of Victorians can’t sit idly by and watch these Stasi tactics continue. This is nothing more than intimidation. If there are protest rallies off the back of these videos, we won’t be in the least bit surprised. It will be a 100% own goal.
Oh, and wasn’t it fascinating to see that Victorian authorities found another 59 coronavirus deaths out of nowhere? Could it possibly be another police state tactic to guarantee that the lockdown stays in full effect come September 13th? Absolutely. Kim Jong Un would blush at the efficiency.
BTW, where is PM Scott Morrison condemning what is happening?
Could it be that the Dems realize that Americans are getting fed up with all of the rioting, looting and shooting?
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden came out last night with,
“Burning down communities is not protest, it’s needless violence. Violence that endangers lives. Violence that guts businesses and shutters businesses that serve the community. That’s wrong.”
Why didn’t the DNC feature strong condemnation of the violence with its list of speakers? Instead his party promoted a convicted murderer and kidnapper who served 27 years but labeled her one of “America’s most impactful leaders” and a non-binary mermaid queen-king who wants to abolish the police, prisons and ICE?
Jeez Joe, only 80 days late pal! You think Americans have forgotten Speaker Pelosi’s, “People will do what they will do!” gaffe?
Only one party has condemned the rioting from the get go. Only one party has thrown its weight behind the police, so much so that the unions are endorsing Trump en masse.
We’ve said before, this is not a coronavirus election. Anyone can see that rioters don’t play by the harsh lockdown rules and people are fed up about their physical, societal and economic safety not some virus that has a 99.96% recovery rate.
So unhinged are The Greens that Senator Jordon Steele-John has already expressed faux outrage before former PM Tony Abbott has slid a foot under his new desk to help the UK negotiate trade deals post Brexit.
What a surprise to see the steely focus on identity politics – age, race, wealth and gender – the four least relevant metrics to determine his ability to produce in the role.
As ever, Abbott Derangement Syndrome reigns supreme. That even out of office, The Greens have to howl at the moon with no evidence it is bad for Australia.
Tony Abbott is entitled to a pension post serving as PM. If the Senator has such a bee in his bonnet over the retirement allowance granted to former leaders, perhaps he should propose a policy to overturn it.
Yet to make out that Australian taxpayers are paying him to sell out Australia is just nonsense.
The Brits want someone to negotiate trade deals in a post Brexit world. A former PM is likely to have a few contacts in his Rolodex to be able to expedite execution.
Perhaps the Senator might sound mildly more intelligent if he suggested that Australia is not obliged to accept any proposal made by the UK body run by Abbott. If we choose a duff trade deal with the UK that is 100% on us for poor due diligence, not Mr Abbott.
This is why we are always in amazement that anyone can vote Green. They are so out of touch with reality.
Who could forget the Greens promoting a domestic violence activist who suggested that firefighters go home and beat their wives. Seriously?
When journalists and other politicians with such views retire perhaps they should declare they be held to the exact guidelines they demand of Mr Abbott. We know for sure if Kevin Rudd or Julia Gillard were selected by UK PM Boris Johnson we wouldn’t hear a peep.
