    ‘Deeply worrying’: Richard Marles ‘held secret meetings’ with Chinese embassy

    Sky News host Chris Kenny says Deputy Opposition Leader Richard Marles’ secret meetings with the Chinese embassy and officials in the past five years are “deeply worrying”.

    Labor have complained they should have been briefed earlier in the lead up to the announcement of the AUKUS deal with the United Kingdom and the United States.

    “So worried are Labor party hard heads about this, that as we saw on Friday, former Labor frontbencher Michael Danby says Marles now can’t be considered for the job of defence minister or foreign minister,” Mr Kenny said.

    “Dear oh dear, too soft on China, too compromised to be foreign minister or defence minister, but if Labor wins, Marles will be deputy prime minister.

    Add to that it'll be Penny Wong as Foreign Minister. Good luck Australia, you're going to need it. :rolleyes:

    Wrong thread, belongs in the JOTD.

    If grandaddy [Prescott Bush] wasn't a wall street banker who financed both the Nazis as well as the Bolsheviks then
    the George Bushes (both junior and senior) would be useless nobodies who no one ever heard of.

    They certainly would not have achieved to Presidency of the USSA.

    All Wars, Conflicts, And Economic Collapses Are Engineered By The Banksters!

    Why is it so hard for most of the world population to grasp this?

    Monkeypox epidemic sounds like horror - dozens of cases in Europe.
    Could Microsoft be producing the next pandemic? :D :D :D ha ha ha



    Let's hope this one passes. Looks scarier than Corona.

    Yes, war & economic collapse are coming hand in hand get ready everyone.

    CCP Issues 'National Mobilization Order" Instructing "Switch to Wartime Operations"



    The China Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee has issued a "National Mobilization Order" to switch China from a peacetime to a wartime economy. This is now formal preparation to seize Taiwan and fight-off U.S. protection of that island.
    Audio from a Provincial government meeting in the Province of Guangdong was recorded, making explicitly clear they have been ordered to immediately switch to a wartime operating status.
    Support of frontline troops, through coordination of industrial production, is now being implemented.
    Here is audio from the meeting. It contains English translations at the bottom of the screen.

    The nerve of Richard Marle to not inform Sky News let alone not seek Chris Kenny permission before going to a meeting at Chinese Embassy, the mind boggles!

    Why the hell is the former Shadow Foreign Minister and Immigration Minister going to meetings at foreign embassies of all the places!

    The story was originally ran by The Australian, but because it's paywalled, I posted the freebie.

    As to what was Marles doing in Chinese Embassy - well, presumably same stuff as Dan Andrews was when he negotiated Victoria into OBOR behind Federal Govt backs.

    As predicted Wong is now Foreign Minister. And Australia is really, desperately going to need luck to muddle through Labors' socialist / climate cultist / identity politics focused mess.

    Well said jultorsk, we have just gone from dumb to dumber when it comes to the governance of this country going from liberal to labor.

    You have got to love the way democracy works in this plantation corporation of australia.

    Labor wins the election in a landslide with only 32% of the primary vote, and yet they lost the last election with 36% of the vote.

    All it is doing is hastening the demise and destruction of this once great country.

    Has China gone mad?
    Is the COVID outbreak any real anymore - in China?

    And the west is already alarmed by the "monkey pox" cases. Prolly just another "evaluation version" by Microsoft :D

    I feel like in one of those dystopian sci-fi thrillers. And no, I'm not a fan of the genre...

    ...Coronavirus pandemic
    ...Russia invading Ukraine
    ...China introducing "social score" system
    ...sexual deviancies being promoted in kindergardens and parents being punished if they revolt...
    ...crypto "joke" currencies spreading and people making a fortune out of investing into "nothing"...
    ...elites promoting "you will own nothing and be happy", yeah sure, not even when you're drunk!
    ...elites promoting insect-based foods, while meat is becoming a taboo
    ...US being led by a senile old man
    ...skyrocketing energy prices
    ...skyrocketing food prices
    ...the US admitting that indeed 'there are UFO's' (but they only visit America! :D )
    ...MONKEYPOX!

    I went into town for some timber, no one has any stocks of treated pine fence railings or 90mm merbau decking. Fence place has been waiting since before easter for their delivery of treated pine.

    I can see the Toilet Brigade will be stripping shelves again at the supermarkets, once "Monkey Pox" takes shape on mainstream media and Dan the man Andrews
    gets into full swing with his own 24/7 television show.:cool::cool:
    No wonder my brother has just sold up and is planning on living in Thailand for good.
    At least over there they have real monkeys and not made up ones.

    Why Bitcoin crashed according to Jikh. I haven't checked the logarhythmic scale yet, but I'd be curious if this correction still fits into the long-term logarhythmic growth scheme:



    According to him, this year seems to be a great "buying opportunity".

    Perhaps it didn't crash because of the economic crisis, it crashed because of this intra-crypto issue (technicals, market sentiments etc.). If this is really true, then indeed there is a buying opportunity ahead.

    But who has the courage to buy a massively depreciating speculative asset without any backing in the middle of a downward economic trail? :D

    This is mental. If they do this, I will not visit Belgium... oh, my God, what a tremendous loss :D Now I can only visit the rest of the world :D

    Some countries will become hysterical control-freaks at the first sign of a sneeze.

    At this point we don't know what this is or how far it has spread. And they say it's treatable.
    But for some reason, hysteria pays off.

    It is all so transparent that it's all going according to an agenda. China, US and EU are the main actors.

    How come Mexico, Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Algeria, Israel, Singapore or Chile aren't such control-freaks? The same pandemic went through them.
    But it's the more "political" countries and entries (here I think of the EU) that are so "involved" in pandemics and controlling the masses.

    It's the same as UFO's. They only visit the United States. :D :D :D
