A TALE OF TWO PARTIES


A TALE OF TWO PARTIES...


In case it is not obvious - note how the Abbott opposition were so unfairly dealt with re previous item by Hurley and the Labor government.

They had a prima - facie case of Hurley politicising his position.

They complained not.

LOOK WHAT LABOR DID in the last 18 hours: THE CONTRAST COULD NOT BE GREATER!

Surely Gen Hurley should keep his head down! He is a humbug!

Jennifer Carter Executive Assistant et al Labored entities
 Dear People,
You may care Ms Carter to tell me whether you passed my email to General Hurley and whether it may be a good idea for him to keep his head down – to coin a phrase.

Similarly the Labored entities: you guys may also care to inform me as to whether you spoke to or encouraged Gen Hurley in Dec 2012 to so plainly  encourage him to politicise his non – political position – and how he [Hurley] may regret same in view of the sheer humbug? Oh – never mind the humbug or regret for same –or otherwise: indeed I have a classical ‘GOTCHA’ What do you say?

You must say something. Not only have events forced this – but there is nowhere to hide. You should have responded to me in 2012: but I guess you thought ignoring me would suffice, non?


Thus you plainly regret that alone – in view of the pathetic bleatings of various Labored persons claiming that Angus POLITICISED matters.
By the way – where is Conroy’s email address on your Labored blog?  http://www.alp.org.au/mps

If you did not encourage Hurley – then Hurley did this on his own – with no consideration of his outrageous behaviour then.

And more important – events have clearly decimated you Labored guys.

Yours Sincerely
Geoff Seidner

Dear Jennifer,
I refer to conversation a few minutes ago.
I request that you send this email to the quartet of ministers below – and ask General Hurley to respond.
And if possible – ask him to not so blatantly politicise his post so outrageously.
He is not even capable of hiding ‘it’.

Defence Chief SCANDAL

A new scandal of this miserable government is the manifest Labor encouragement of the outrageous spin / poli - speak of Defence Chief David Hurley. Towing boats back not the solution, says Defence chief 19/12
Since when has it been acceptable for a servant of government to deliberately misconstrue Opposition Deputy Julia Bishop in an outrageous series of dot - points - which amazingly contain the admission that ''....it was the job of the defence forces to "do what the government of the day requires us to do".
Thank you General!
Who encouraged you to politicize the Defence Forces? This is a shameful rabble of a government. And if you acted on your own - that is manifestly pathetic!
Hurley is as guilty as Ken Henry was in suggesting that a 99% mining tax would not be a disincentive?
And Gillard rambles about the irrelevant Ashby matter!

An ode of odium to Steven Conroy

What? No detritus?
An ode of odium to Steven Conroy
I refer the reader to The Australian  page one today.
This low – life of a man, this labored fool – this unreconstructed, unforgivable humbug – has done it again.
Having hatched the most expensive financial catastrophe in the form of the NBN, he is now pretending that this rape of our finances was justified!

He who  – messed up media that even the lunatic Greens vitiated -  this nincompoop does not even try to keep low. What a target for derision he is becoming again! Failing in every standard of governance does not discourage C – 6 years he has promoted a parody that I understand will be used by universities as a case study of how not to govern.
The New Minister Turnbull in charge of coping with the NBN has been very generous to this imbecile: largely ignoring the twirp. But now the material that is coming out goes and accurately delineates the personality of this incomparable neurotic incompetent.
This conman Conroy has finally been caught out on his multiple chimeras; anyone with the barest elements of acquity can see him for all his vainglorious ‘moronity’. That is a word is it not? Better than 'futures', non?
Conroy and the ABC for years conjoured people like Paul Budda to spruik the mega – expensive project.
They both have much to answer.
There are so many grossly incompetent people in Labor 2017 – 13.
How to rate them?
Here goes.
  1. K Rudd
  2. J Gillard
  3. W Swan
  4. S Conroy
  5. A Albenese
  6. Emmerson
  7. W Shorten
  8. Plibersek
  9. Peter Garrett
  10. The rest of Cabinet!
What a race to the nether world! Note how I avoid the pathetic leftist phrase race to the bottom!
What a race for historians to regard as The Chief Twirp!
Perhaps I must concede a personal failure: all is a futility of futilities: all Labor  have COLLECTIVE responsibility for all they have done and failed to do – nay – even failure to see all the unforseen / inevitable consequences in forming the most incompetent government in modern history. Whitlam looks good by comparison.
They are trying to find catacombs – and are too stupid to realize they open themselves to perusal with the election in 2.5 years or so.
Yet the socialist dystopia will forever remain their nomenclature: NOLO CONTENDERER!
Their ultimate indictment is that no one stood up in despair to tell dear leaders that they were mad! Their multifarious mendacious spin still continues!
Everything – yes – Everything was laden with the leaden blunderbus of the professionally useful idiots term of Lenin.
I guess Vladimir had no idea that his classical  put – down of the academics et al would eventually be completely  inadequate.
Take a decko at the hundreds of websites – or my own blogs. No contest, surely?
The only regret is that they can never be accountable.
But Conroy gets this serve from me  because he is such a foul – mouthed unconscionably bad  pathetic person.

    IN SPITE OF THE AMBASSADOR’S WORDS...  BELOW!!!.....
    We, like the overwhelming majority of Israelis and fair-minded people everywhere, feel great pain and a sense of sorrow when we see children tragically involved in acts of politically motivated violence. While the issue of incarceration and treatment of minors is being dealt with, we are not seeing a similar level of thought or effort put into investigations concerning the origin of such behaviours. Children are not inherently violent or hateful. This is a learned behaviour.
    To comprehensively investigate the health and wellbeing of the children involved in such violent acts, we must acknowledge that these children were, at some point, indoctrinated into this vicious mentality by terrorists and their affiliates.
    We must recognise the role of adults in teaching their children to throw rocks as the core reason for these acts. Including, of course, strategic targets and timing in training. Misused by adults and terror organisations in a way contravening international law, utilising children for incitement purposes is criminal. This is the reality and it must stop.
    When a minor is coerced into participating in deadly violence, it primarily indicates a lack of discipline, education and a breakdown of the primary support system, his or her family. Unfortunately, the Palestinian society and Authority have embraced and institutionalised a system of hate and violence directed at Israelis.
    This system encourages individual acts of violence, whether rock throwing, fire-bomb hurling, drive-by shooting or, in extreme cases, the utilisation of explosives and suicide attacks. This environment is met by, and insulated by, an educational system that does its utmost to erase Israel from the history books.


    ......LOOK AT THE GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT  BELOW: SEE IN SPITE OF ABOVE!!!
    WHY HE IS SO – OVER – GENEROUS TO UNICEF TOO!!!
    ########
    As stated in the UNICEF paper: “These efforts will build on the work of Palestinian, Israeli and International civil society groups who have been working with the Palestinian population for a number of years to raise awareness with children, families and communities to ensure they are informed of their specific rights when they are detained by the Israeli military.”
    Israel stands at a crossroads, a place where no other country has stood before. We represent a patch in the complex tapestry of Middle-Eastern geography.
    To simplify and sensationalise our situation, and that of the Middle East, is unhelpful and undermines peace efforts in both a regional and global context.
    It is such a shame that we cannot see a more three-dimensional view of the Middle East, instead of the same story regurgitated over many days. Shmuel Ben-Shmuel is Israel’s ambassador to Australia.

    13/2/14 - ANSWER DEMANDED RE ABC ETC FRAUD


    ABC HEADQUARTERS
    CC to Julie Bishop
    I direspectfully demand an answer from BOOB CARR / ABC and C Mitchell / The Oz/ Lyons/  to this.
    It is a shameful chapter in Australia’s history

    ANSWER DEMANDED RE FRAUD
    It is about time the greatest political spin of recent times was disabused: I put it to the reader; do not believe the left who try to prove the veracity of their articles / verbiage

    There are  two possibilities:**** they are merely lying or plainly lying! Here is Carr's nefarious article.


    Bob Carr is good at both forms of lies. By the way - I hope he sues me. Sadly he no longer has a public email address in my ken. Such a fall.

    His miserable article rests on both forms of lies.

    Let me take you to the latter.
    Carr spends his life crawling, trawling through whatever may help his anti - semitic cause.
    His modus vivendi of course demonstrates what sort of person he is.. Because proper research is not his game.

    Indeed - he takes words / whatever may be helpful - preferably from friends of Israel and inverts context, no matter how shallow or absurd or plain the distortion.
    It never seems absurd the way Carr does it.

    It is plain how he gets away with it.

    1. He relies on the ignorance of most reasonable people: who plainly accept that  'it must be correct.'
    2. One has to understand there are few people in the public domain whose comments cannot be abused by the likes of Carr. So paradoxically the quotes are seemingly correct. Even entirely correct. But the man destroys meaningful context - and glibly cares not.
    3. Worse - much worse is this tangent which Carr purports to not understand. People can throughout their life can make disparate comments that may not be correct for our times. That is context, Bobbness Carr!
    4. Or may be incorrect - and may be a harmless, erroneous rubbish for which the person should never be held responsible. Eg the Moshe Dayan quote. Not for Carr, of course. His game is professional media spin!
    5. Take Carr's Levy Eshkol quote.It is embelished with The holocaust via a dubious entity: you cannot get much worse!
    6. But wait - there is more! Carr attacks Israel re the idiotic socialist idea that [socialist!] kibbutz life - good - settling in Israel bad. Apologies to the Orwell.
    7. Abusing Golda Meir via her harmless quote is plain stupid. [See below enlarged link.]
    8. But by now Carr no longer cares: he thinks he has transported the reader into his world where like the left - we cannot think for ourselves. Well - I CAN, you fool Carr! Why not use a real quote Carr? SEE BELOW
    9. He attacks AIJAC and misquotes his successor the esteemed Julie Bishop! Shame on Carr.
    10. Never mind his his on his favourite toy - the Geneva Convention and International Law: simply dishonest.
    11. I guess I have no time to teach him about how many Jews were murdered beause of 1944 perceptions of so - called International Law. Remember The Exodus? Of course. Carr was rejoicing in his mother's womb!
    12. And the quotes re anti - semitic  Thoreux? And Kerry and Obama more! Shame: see my earlier assay on what low - lifes they are.
    13. Especially Obama.Kerry!! ''...warned Israel last month of the danger of delegitimisation, especially after the EU announced any economic treaties with Israel would carefully exclude - one may say boycott - business activity in Israeli settlements.''
    14. THE ABOVE IS SICK! KERRY HAS ELSEWHERE PLAINLY EXCUSED ANY TERRORIST ACTION BY THE PLO.And the above re BDS IS NO BETTER!!
    15. But as a finale - contemplate how sick is Carr's quote re Kerry! In and of itself above - and his complete disregard for morality!
    Now - to end this - LOOK: THE ABC AND LYONS AND CARR WERE LYING!!
    SEE THIS!! Just like Jenin - all lies!!

    West Bank settlements always illegal

    YOUR FRIENDS' ACTIVITY

    Hi Geoff Discover news with your friends. Give it a try.
    To get going, simply connect with your favourite social network:
    Facebook
    ANY confusion about Israel’s settlements in the West Bank can be easily resolved. There is a file in the office of the Israeli Prime Minister that will do it.
    The file would be handy for John Kerry as he attempts to broker a peace. It would help Julie Bishop, who told The Times of Israel on January 15 she’d like to see advice that says settlements are illegal.
    It was this advice that an Israeli prime minister asked for in 1967. Israel had just conquered what is now the West Bank. Prime minister Levi Eshkol asked Israel’s top authority on international law, Theodor Meron, whether Israel could settle civilians there.
    Meron was a child survivor of the Holocaust and has since become one of the world’s leading authorities on the laws of war and a judge on the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.
    His advice was unequivocal, and today he sticks to it. He said: “Civilian settlement in the administered territories contravenes explicit provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention.”
    When General Moshe Dayan in 1968 proposed building Israeli towns on the West Bank he blithely conceded: “Settling Israelis in administered territories, as is known, contravenes international conventions ... “
    Indeed, the Fourth Geneva Convention would appear to leave no room for argument. It states: “The occupying power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.”
    Apologists for settlements try to argue that Article 49 bars the occupier only from “forced transfer” (my emphasis) of its civilians. This is not the interpretation accepted by the International Court of Justice or anyone else. The adjective “forced” does not appear in the convention.
    I think I recognise a killer argument when I see one. The killer argument here is that Israel’s own legal authority, at the very start, told its government that settlements were illegal under international law.
    It’s curious that supporters of Israel would choose to fight on this ground - their weakest.
    When I was foreign minister the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council directed a furious effort at trying to block even routine criticism of settlements, as if this were more vital than advocating a two-state solution or opposing boycotts of Israel. Settlers themselves shatter all sympathy, as on the ABC’s Four Corners on Monday when Daniella Weiss stated they deliberately had occupied land to block the creation of a Palestinian state because “this land was promised to the Jewish nation by God”.
    In Louis Theroux’s BBC documentary The Ultra Zionists, religious settlers declared Palestinians an inferior race. “This is the Jewish homeland and there’s never been a Palestinian people,” declared one, standing on a property formerly occupied by Palestinians. In one blast they defied centuries of priceless Jewish liberal and humanitarian instinct.
    No one from the centre-Left of European politics is going to do anything other than repudiate this ultra-religious vision. “The kibbutz used to be the symbol of Israel,” a British Labour MP told me. “Now it’s the settlement bloc.” American Jewry is increasingly detaching itself from what it sees as a chauvinist, illiberal strain in Israeli politics.
    Kerry warned Israel last month of the danger of delegitimisation, especially after the EU announced any economic treaties with Israel would carefully exclude - one may say boycott - business activity in Israeli settlements.
    I know some supporters of Israel would want to point out that there are a range of settlement categories. My response is to quote Israeli prime minister Golda Meir, who once said: “If you’ve got to explain, you’ve lost already.”
    In any case, there is available a far more intelligent defence of Israel. Concede that the settlement mission is controversial within Israel. Point out many Israelis are opposed to the settler vision of a greater Israel indefinitely governing a majority Arab population. Give up any argument that settlements are legal under international law and move on to more fruitful territory.
    Insist that liberal democracy and shining economic success - even with constant threat of war - are the chief virtues of Israel, a state where six former heads of its security agency, Shin Bet, can appear in a documentary (The Gatekeepers) and criticise Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, a state where its own Supreme Court can overrule its government on use of torture or the direction of a wall opposed by Palestinian villagers, where historians freely challenge their country’s own foundation myth. Where, as Four Corners showed, its military personnel can speak out against the occupation.
    In all these respects, Israel presents a benchmark of pluralism and democracy - a formidable one - for a future Palestinian entity. If Palestinians achieved it, they would set off a challenge to Arab dictatorship and theocracy everywhere and realise their own greatness.
    Bob Carr was Australia’s foreign minister from March 2012 to September last year and was NSW premier from 1995 to 2005.
