2016 - What to Expect

The psychic phone-lines run hot this time of the year with folk wanting to know what the coming year has in store. For themselves usually. The morning TV shows for dummies having breakfast also conduct 'interviews' with strange ladies and even stranger chaps each claiming to be clairvoyant and who tell of which nonebrity film person will marry (again and again), betray or otherwise bring drama and mayhem to the gullible public.  Ladies who read 'Women's Magazines' may also go to the 'classifieds' to consult purveyors of horoscopes provided 'Absolutely FREE', with just $49.99 post and handling.

Most are quite ignorant but that does not stop them. I am disinclined to let such charlatans into the Tavern- even the Psychic Mensa fellow who runs a State group and wonders why his doing sod all has the group doing sod all. He cannot see the future of his own efforts

I do not know what the future holds any more than the next Knight. I just keep my sword sharp and my towel dry, my armour oiled and the barrels cool in the cellar. But we can get some clue of the near future by looking at what has brought us to this moment and what is very likely to continue. And be on top of the beer ordering system.

We can take a brief look at the 'tone' though, through the quality of those who represent us on the world stage. One might describe them as the ticket inspectors at the top of the Slippery Slide.

Much has happened in the past year nationally, internationally and for most, personally. Mr Abbott, our steely-eyed and hard working Prime Minister was overthrown early in the year by a chap who thinks he can do better. He had gazed into a crystal ball and also taken note of how the Socialists do it. A swift stab in the back.

He is likely to remain through 2016. So what is his mind like? Let us hear what he thinks about the worst plague to befall humanity over the past few years since feminism. 
The man has baggage that he has dragged into Office.
Here he is on a  'prominent' TV program a short few years ago.

There is so much nonsense there that someone was bound to take him to task. And did.
Turnbull’s ignorance of Islam is dangerous for Australia

These following opinions were expressed by Malcolm Turnbull in a Q&A session (Mar 1, 2011) on Islamic schools. It shows the complete level of ignorance by Turnbull on the true nature of Islam and the threat of Islam to the free people of Australia. His speech last night in taking over the helm of Australia, displayed that his stand has not changed.
1. TURNBULL: All Islamic schools are homes for teaching extremism—that is absurd.

FACT: Every Islamic school must teach—Islamic superiority, intolerance, inequality, anti-any man-made religion and law (democracy) and belief in jihad which is the “cause of islam”—because all of these are core Koranic concepts. These core principals are also at the base of all Islamic extremism and terror groups.

2. TURNBULL: Islam is an ancient religion of great scholarship

FACT: Islam is a political, military AND religious group that was founded around 700AD. It is one of youngest religions. Islam has not had scholarship since inquiry ended in the 11th century.
3. TURNBULL: Much of our learning and culture came to us from the Muslims.
FACT: Our learning does not come from Islam; our capacity for innovation was spurred by 14 centuries of Islamic imperialism that destroyed two-thirds of Chistendom.
4. TURNBULL: and gave us much of our system of numbers

 FACT: Hindus invented and gave us those numbers; Muslims simply transmitted it to us.

5. TURNBULL: Much of the learnings of the Ancient Greek only survived because of the Arab scholars.

FACT: Islam destroyed nine-tenths of the classical tradition in vast library-burnings in the 7th century. An extension of the war mongering that Muhammad commenced and that gave cause to 4 crusades to stop it. The remnant of our great libraries were preserved by Christian monks fleeing the Byzantine empire as it was destroyed.
6. TURNBULL The idea that Islam is antithetical to learning to culture or scholarship is absurd.

FACT: Islam’s traditions are militaristic, uneconomic, unecological (the Middle East is a wasteland, which once was fertile) Plus it oppresses half its population (females).

7. TURNBULL: We must promote and encourage a “moderate” Islam that ….supports freedom, democracy, rule of law,  tolerance. They are universal values.

 FACT: Islam supports totalitarianism not democracy. Muslims cannot support  “man-made” law over Allah’s law of gender inequality, intolerance of infidels, no gays and extermination of offenders of Islam the Prophet and infidels.
FACT: Islam supports fascism and the rule of oligarchs and priesthood.
FACT: Islam supports the values of terror groups.
FACT: Islam supports the rule of arbitary, bigoted Islamic “law”.
FACT Islam supports tolerance within veiled threats against the non-Muslim “kuffar”, and imposes creeping oppression of other groups, eventually giving rise to mass murder and genocide of free, non-Muslim populations across the world.
FACT: Islam can never be moderate. Islam is unchangeable. Its name means “submission” and so it can NEVER support freedom. Submission and freedom are polar opposites.
FACT: Democracy is a “man-made” concept that can not co-exist with any rule of Islam from Allah. Allah’s ruling will always dominate. “Tolerance, rule of law and democracy” are the antipathy to followers Islam. Those universal values of freedom, democracy, rule of law, tolerance are simply the universal values of the Christian West. Hence why Islam is focusses its jihad on destroying the West as it is considered the generator of unbelief in Islam.
These concepts will be espoused from every mosque and every Islamic school because this is ISLAM.

(Now this Islamic muppet has been put in charge of driving Australia—God help us.)
So many of the 'Political' muppet class put forward this view that Islam is a Religion of Peace.  They class Islam as a religion just like any other. 

It is complete bollox (if you will excuse a 'Knightly' phrase) and any politician who espouses it should be sent to Syria - or Egypt, or Afghanistan, or Iran, or any number of Islam infested places.  They know which ones - the ones people are fleeing from as refugees. Turnbull follows Obama like a sheep.  Most western leaders seem deliberately blind and stupid in this regard. They think the public is as stupid as they are. (They may have a point).

As for appealing to 'Moderates', Brigitte Gabriel had something to say that Turnbull should hear.

 People have stood in these bars and said as much before and I suppose it is the major lesson about the coming year to which we should attend.

The totally lacsidaisical attitude of the 'Politico' class, extending right down to local council level, will have a marked effect on Australia.  Just take the small regional town of Bendigo as an example and watch what happens there in 2016. It will be a litmus paper test.

There are approximately 300 Muslim people in Greater Bendigo, many of whom work as medical professionals, academics, engineers and business people. For the past 20 years the local Muslim community has had access to a room at LaTrobe University that holds approximately 40 people. On Fridays they access a larger room to allow more people (approximately 70) to attend midday prayer.

They have now planning permission to build a mosque. A BIG mosque.

Mr Zanetti gave us his view in the Oz room.

Bendigo Mosque Terrorist Links

IT'S all very well being all inclusive, multi-cultural, multi-faith and all that, as long as you’re not hugging a bearded bloke holding a knife behind his back ready to use it when you’re least suspecting it.

A lot of kerfuffle’s been made about a mega mosque proposed for the historic Victorian town of Bendigo. The application for the Islamic place of worship has stirred up violent protests from anti-mosque and anti-anti-mosque groups.

Mosque supporters believe they have goodness and wholesomeness on their side, which is a very nice position to hold until you take a closer look who’s behind the mosque.

A report in The Australian links the Bendigo mosque to known terrorists. 
Investigative reporter Rebecca Weisser has done some digging. The Greater Bendigo City Council would do well to take note.  After all, they have a duty of care to their townsfolk. Ignoring this information is akin to negligence.
What’s been uncovered is that the Bendigo mosque is being funded by Australian Islamic Mission (AIM).
AIM’s 2014 and 2015 conferences have as the main speaker Dr. Anas Al-Tikriti, the founder of the Cordoba Foundation in the UK.
In 2009, the Cordoba Foundation sponsored an event with a senior recruiter for Al-Qaeda, Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, who was killed in a drone strike in 2011.
Al-Awlaki was known as the preacher of three of the 9/11 hijackers. He also corresponded with Nidal Malik Hasa before the Army psychiatrist went on a shooting rampage in Fort Hood, Texas. He was also linked to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who tried to blow up a US airliner.
The bank accounts of Dr. Anas Al-Tikri and the Cordoba Foundation were closed last year by HSBC because these accounts were outside the bank’s ‘risk appetite’.
Another AIM conference speaker last year was activist Yvonne Ridley. This terrorist supporter hailed the Chechen Islamist who planned the Beslan school massacre by terrorists in Russia in 2004 “a martyr”. 

The siege which started on 1 September 2004, lasted three days and involved the capture of over 1,100 people as hostages, including 777 children. 

It ended with the death of 385 people including 186 children. Many others were  injured or went missing.

Yvonne Ridley also said, “drinking Coca Cola is like drinking the blood of Palestinian children.”
In 2010 the guest speaker at an AIM fundraising dinner was Dr. Tareq Al-Suwaidan who said in visit to Australia in 2012 Islam would “conquer the world” and that the Muslim community had only one hope, to love the afterlife and “be ready to die”.
This is taught by the Qur’an and preached in mosques the world over.  
Al-Suwaidan has been listed in a US District Court case as a member of the US Muslim Brotherhood and co-conspirator and joint venturer with the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), the founders of which were found guilty in 2008 of channeling $12 million to Hamas in one of the largest terrorism financing cases in US history. 
Hamas is a proscribed terrorist organisation by the Australian government.

Al-Suwaidan was banned last year from attending a Muslim Fair in Brussels for saying (in regard to Israel) “we do not demand a ceasefire. Rather we demand that the rockets continue to be launched until they bow before us…all the mothers of the Islamic nation – not only Palestinian mothers – should suckle their babies on the hatred of the sons of Zion. We hate them. They are our enemies. We should instil this in the souls of our children, until a new generation arises and wipes them off the face of the earth…each and every one of us, when leaving this hall, should be contemplating a plan how to wipe out Israel.”
The secretary of AIM Melbourne Dr. Seyed Sheriffdeen said AIM invited Al-Suwaidan to speak because “he is popular”.

AIM Victoria shared a video on its Facebook page which shows a picture of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netayahu with gunshot firiing and a photo of former Israeli defence minister Ehud Barak in the line of a gunsight (aimed on his face), with the sound of a gun shot.

AIM Victoria’s Facebook page also shared a photo of the book Fiqh al-Zakah by Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, with the exhortation “Read to understand ...”
Qaradawi, a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood, is banned from entering the US and was refused a visa to visit the UK. 
In 2013 Qaradawi, said: “Our wish should be that we carry out Jihad to death.”
Qaradawi says of suicide bombing, “I consider this type of martyrdom operation as an evidence of God’s justice. Allah Almighty is just; through his infinite wisdom he has given the weak a weapon the strong do not have and that is their ability to turn their bodies into bombs as Palestinians do”.

In 2009, Qaradawi said on Al Jazeera: “Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption...The last punishment was carried out by Hitler...Allah Willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.”

Also promoted on AIM Victoria’s Facebook page, is a lecture by Dr. Harlina Halizah Siraj, organised by IKRAM, an organisation in Malaysia that says Muslim physicians should perform amputations in accordance with sharia law. Cutting off hands, feet and heads is a punishment under sharia law, for crimes such as being homosexual. This is often performed in public squares. 
In 2010, a former president of AIM, Zachariah Matthews called for sharia law to “function as a parallel system”.
In 2001 Matthews wrote that two of the principles to be learnt from studying the life of the Prophet are that “secrets should be hidden…and only disclosed to those with strong ties” and that “deception is necessary”. The article referenced Al-Qaradawi and Dr Jum’ah Amin Abd al-Aziz, a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
Anyway, I’m sure the Greater Bendigo City Council will have taken all of this into account and decided there’s nothing to worry about in the interest of multiculturalism, when approving the Bendigo mosque. 
City councillors may have a greater 'risk appetite' than the HSBC bank.
Anybody can easily research the background behind the people behind the mosque. Google a few of these groups, associations and names and watch the links pop up onto your screen.
Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that, even knowing what we now know, all will bode well for Bendigo in the future. 
If you’re religious, keep the people of Bendigo in your prayers. 
Our National, State and Local 'leaders' are not showing prudence. They are blind. Or perhaps stupid. Maybe, Bad.

We shall see as we continue down the slippery slope.

Meanwhile this old Tavern Keeper will become a little older and a little more knackered but still keep vigil outside the abortuary for the babies.

Have a Good New Year. As best you can, considering we shall all be carrying a lot of baggage from 2015.



  1. My goodness that was a far-ranging one but a goody.

    1. It could have ranged much further of course, but that would be more befitting an hour long doco on the tele.

  2. I do hope the Councillors in all rural Victorian towns become more aware!


Ne meias in stragulo aut pueros circummittam.

Our Bouncer is a gentleman of muscle and guile. His patience has limits. He will check you at the door.

The Tavern gets rowdy visitors from time to time. Some are brain dead and some soul dead. They attack customers and the bar staff and piss on the carpets. Those people will not be allowed in anymore. So... Be Nice..
