Cardinal Pell should sue Alex Jones

Cardinal Pell should sue Alex Jones

Editorial Comment:

I said it before.  Don’t chain yourself to the Alex Jones crazy train.  It is completely off the rails.

His latest evidence-free editorial.  Claim that the deputy Pope, Cardinal Pell has trafficked over 100 boys to blackmail the Vatican.

An extraordinary claim.  Where’s his evidence? Zip.

He goes to claim that Pell has been arrested.  He has not been arrested.  This is false.

40 years ago, Cardinal Pell was a very small fish with little influence or authority in the church.  Does Alex seriously want us to believe that Pell set this up so long ago.

Perhaps Alex has finally lost his mind or he can no longer distinguish between his bigotries and his conspiracy theories.

Nowhere in the media has there been any reports on Cardinal Pell that have come close to what Alex is claiming,  He just made it all up to feed his most scandal-hungry and deranged audience members.

Cardinal Pell should sue the smug smile off Alex’s ill-informed face.

On a side note, Popes do not have deputies.

Lord Naseby MP claims 7,000 not 40,000 killed at the end of Sri Lankan Civil War

November 19, 2017

Lord Naseby MP claims that only 7,000 were killed at the end of Sri Lankan Civil War.  Exploding the 40,000 killed Myth.

Lord Naseby of UK Parliament recently revealed how he accessed confidential reports compiled by the London’s Defence Attache in Sri Lanka during the war and gathered that the number of people who were killed during the last phase of war was 7,000.

“I’ve tracked the war carefully because I just couldn’t believe these official figures – they didn’t stack up to the information I was getting. So I then invoked our freedom of information inquiry. I asked for the dispatches sent by our Defence Attache to our foreign office during the last days of the war. The application was refused twice by our foreign office. I then applied directly to the information commissioner – which is my right – and got 26 pages of redacted dispatches. Missing were the last six weeks of them. So I appealed again. And lo and behold, another 12 arrived. I went through them very carefully,” he said.

Without being limited to classified documents, Lord Naseby had asked university experts who are “traditionally left-wing” about the casualties.

“They also said that 7,000 casualties was their estimate. There was other evidence too, like what US ambassador to Sri Lanka, Robert Blake, had named a tentative casualty figure: about 5000, a few days before the end of the war,” he said.

Editorial Comment:

7,000 seems to be the most reliable figure that I have seen since the end of the war.  40,000 killed lost all credibility years ago.

Is the Media Ignoring Atheism as a Motive in Devin Patrick Kelley?

Is the Media Ignoring Atheism as a Motive in Devin Patrick Kelley?

Survivor of Texas Massacre​ Recounts the Words She Heard While Playing Dead, 'Everybody Dies Motherf**ker'

There seems to be a wide gap between what we know about Devin Patrick Kelley and what is being reported about him in the Mainstream Media.

In every crime, there are three elements that come in to play before it is committed: Motive, Means, and Opportunity. The means and opportunity are obvious in the case where a man bursts into a church and starts gunning down its helpless worshipers.  What we are left with after the fact is the reason for such a carnage and destruction of human life.  Why would someone specifically target a church in a small town and systematically execute unarmed people?  Reports are coming in that Devin Patrick Kelley specifically targeting crying children who had no hope of defending themselves.  This kind of maliciousness goes beyond what most people can even contemplate but it does show the kind of mindset that can put aside all forms of morality, ethics, and empathy as it sets out to fulfill its ruthless ambitions.  What were those ambitions and why did they require the deaths to occur specifically in a small country church?

Since the event, that shocked the world, a picture of Devin Patrick Kelley life is coming together.  He was a troubled man who had an enormous tendency to violence.  His first marriage broke down through violence, he fractured his own son’s skull in an attack and as a result, was dishonorably discharged from military service.  There are even reports that he had escaped from a mental institution at some stage.

Yet we are still left with the question of why he chose to target a church and why he chose to deliberately execute everyone he could.  His actions go far beyond taking revenge upon a hated ex-mother-inlaw to collective hatred of target group of people.  Devin could have gone to the homes of the people he hated.  He could have stalked them individually to satisfy his individual revenge.  However, that was not enough, he wanted to take his wrath out on an entire congregation.

People who knew Devin through his online social media accounts describe a man who was a fanatical atheist who had nothing but contempt for religious people.  He considered them to be stupid and contemptible.  He was linked to a number of atheist social media accounts and had no hesitation in preaching that he collectively hated Christians.

Nina Rose Nava, who also said she attended school with Kelley had this to say:

“[I]n complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my [Facebook] cause I couldn’t stand his post. He was always talking about how people who believe in God [were] stupid and trying to preach his atheism.”

At least one atheist group that Devin associated with now wants to distance itself from any their infamous subscriber.

“Reports say the Texas shooter ‘liked’ my Facebook page,” he posted on Twitter in the wake of the attack. “It should go without saying that his actions go against everything I stand for.”

Law officers have also been trying to steer the blame away from atheism:

“This was not racially motivated, it wasn’t over religious beliefs,” Freeman Martin, a regional director with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Despite the domestic issues surrounding this case, no one has explained how a mass murder attack upon a church of people is not religiously motivated.  It beggars belief.

The entire picture of what was going through the mind of Devin may never be known however authorities and media commentators have been quick to steer away from any mention of his contempt of people who believed in god.

Lionel Media Blasts Twitter as Gutless for Abandoning RT media

Lionel Blasts Twitter as Gutless for Abandoning RT media

 

Editorial Comment:

Twitter only seems to crack under pressure of a select group.  What did RT Media do to sway the US election?

As Lionel points out, they committed the crime of making people think.

Sometimes when I watch US-based media pundits I get the impression that they believe that no other nation has free speech ingrained in their culture.  Blathering on about the ‘First Amendment’ is totally meaningless to other nations where ‘Free Speech’ has been embedded in common law for centuries.  Free speech, human rights and freedom of thought are universal concepts, not the exclusive property of one nation.

Why is the NBN a Failure?  A View from an IT Professional.

Why is the NBN a Failure?  A View from an IT Professional.

Background

First a bit of a declaration: For many years I was a network engineer building and deploying major networks.  Much of my career was spent in these main areas, diagnostics, security and the Internet.  So I am not coming at this issue from a novice’s point of view, but from decades of education, knowledge and experience in the real world.  What I have learn about the IT industry comes from the very early days of when the Internet was being invented to all the leaps of technology since then.

The NBN

The first I hear about the NBN was when Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced that he was going to upgrade every home in Australia to have an optic fibre connection.  The speeds that his government was predicting were astronomical when compared to the standard ADSL connection that had been deployed just a few years earlier.  The initiative was designed to lift Australia’s broadband Internet speed into the 21st century.  We were given the sales pitch that this would create a whole new digital data economy.  We were being told that the medical profession would one day be able to perform remote surgery on patients.  We were being told that it embarrassing that our Internet speeds were slower than South Korea.  We were being sold a utopian dream of how the government was going to give everyone the best high-speed Internet in the world that would pay for itself in no time.

Yes, that is how the whole concept went from an initial estimate of $4 billion to over $50 billion and more in just a short period of time.  How did it get to this point?  Not only did we get to this giant waste of taxpayers’ money, the trend of waste has continued even when the government changed.  Ten years on and there is no end in sight to completing the NBN project.  Messages and information that I have received from people inside the NBN project paint a messy picture at every stage of its rollout.  This includes undertrained staff, shortages of optic fibre specialists and private installers who engaging in dodgy practices that will inevitably lead to ongoing faults in the network.  However, none of these rumors are unique to NBN.  What is unique to the NBN is the scale of how the government set it up and pushes its agenda.

NBN was created as monopoly where every other telecommunication and Internet Service was moving to abolish monopolies. Instead of letting the open market decide what technologies were best suited for each customer, the government bet everything on an ‘optic fibre to the premises’ mantra.  No other technical solution was given serious consideration, meaning the NBN not only monopolized the market but the technology to be used in that market.

The second, and far more crucial, failure of the NBN is its business model is driven on ‘market push’ rather than ‘market pull’.  This may seem like a banal point to people who are outside the IT industry but is the fundamental driver to making a profit.  If people do not want something, they will not purchase it.  If they do, then they will go out of their way they get it.  This is how the entire first generation of the Internet was built – Market Pull.  The idea of the having access to the Internet started a massive industry that had customers lining up for simple dial-up services.  The entire Network was paying for itself before it was even built.  The second wave of Internet expansion came with the introduction of the ADSL backbone. Again, no one needed the government to force people to buy this service.  The customers chose ADSL because the product was the best available at the time and they consumed it greedily.  There was no major multi-billion dollar government program to pay for the ADSL network because it was not required.  The consumers were paying for what they wanted in a competitive market.

The fundamental problem with NBN was not in its choice of technology but in the fact that it was being driven by political masters for political reasons.  The NBN was a major infrastructure build driven by the policies created by people who wanted to win an election.  It was primarily designed to inspire votes, not free market consumers.  There is a difference.

The NBN also has a third burden that is forcing it to become unprofitable.  That is the obligation to provide the network to all Australians regardless of cost.  This is similar to ‘first phone obligation’ that Telstra had to somehow provide a phone service to every Australian.  This obligation meant that the installation of a phone service could cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars to install in a remote area.  The service had to be installed by Telstra under its legal obligations despite the fact that it would never be able to recover to losses.  Some NBN services in remote areas have cost nearly half a million dollars to install.  The government does not care about the cost because it can point how rural voters are being looked after.  However, NBN co will have to absorb the costs and pass them onto the consumers as higher charges all around.

Finally, we have the absurd situation where this monopoly actually restricts innovation.  NBNco is complaining about what they see as rogue operators moving into their market space to provide alternative services at lower costs.  Imagine that, competition and cheaper prices are now the enemies.  The NBN is no longer about getting the best service to the consumer but ensuring a monopoly os protected.

The whole NBN project was doomed from the start because it was an idea dreamed up by politicians, not IT companies; nor was it something that market forces were driving.  The NBN was, at its heart, a pork barrel thrown out in an election year to buy s few extra votes.  Now that barrel of pork is starting to smell bad.
