““Well, what I’m sayin’ is that there are known knowns, and there are known unknowns, but there are also unknown unknowns. . . “ …..I won’t bother referencing that quote, you know it already, or else you have been living under a rock…unlike the rest of us who, like mushrooms, are kept in the dark and fed on bullshit!
This is one of those articles where one’s arms feel like lead being dragged to the keyboard to even be bothered to type the words…where the mind becomes so wearily stultified with trying to simply explain what seems the bleedin’ obvious to welded-on LNP supporters or swinging voters, that one only feels like curling up into a foetal position and rocking back and forth rather than have to go down to the depths of child-like logic to justify one’s instinctive (and usually proven true with time) premonitions.
What I am talking about is trying to prove the logical truth behind political and authoritative policing actions that seem to go nowhere..for instance, the FACT that why does the IPA seem to have unlimited political influence, unlimited media access.. and could quite easily get its funding from you and I : the taxpayers, through a convoluted but well disguised pipeline of LNP donations gained from Parakeelia type grants ( http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-06-23/bradley-explained:-the-liberal-partys-parakeelia-rort/7535372 ) to the LNP then diverted to the IPA..or from Murdoch Inc. through grants from the LNP to his corporation via the public purse…OR . . . and there you go…and of course you know it’s true..for when have those fuckin’ useless upper-middle-class bastards EVAH—-EVAH paid for anything out of their own pockets or through honest hard work?…WHEN??….NEVAHHHHHH!
But this is one of those “unknowns” that the likes of you and I can not prove…and will likely never be investigated..WHY?…because while this LNP criminal organisation is in office and has control of ALL the authorities that DO criminal investigation, it will be put in the “go slow” tray awaiting the blowing of Gabriel’s Trumpet announcing the second coming!
How can I say that?…One argument put forward by an acquaintance who quite rightly defends public service integrity, was that perhaps the appropriate authority IS investigating but we cannot know where that is at this moment….and we await the outcome which could be at any moment!
“Oh..like the AWU raids?” I cynically proposed “Where the media was alerted and were waiting on the Union’s doorstep?..like that level of secrecy?”….. “Or when Craig Thomson was arrested and the coppers were booked into a local motel overnight and the media was hunkering down outside while his pregnant wife was taking a shower and then filmed it all for the nightly news?”….I was on a roll..”Or the TURC Royal Commission, where some union officials and even the leaders of the Labor party were openly investigated with the MSMedia giving hourly updates, then accused and some even charged, handcuffed, dragged away publicly and arrested though nothing was yet proved…that sort of ‘secret investigation’?”
You see…THESE are the “unknowns” that neither you nor I can prove…and yet there they are…Why has the investigation into Michaela Cash and the AWU tip-off to the media stalled ?…Why was the investigation into Barnaby Joyce and his girlfriend costing shenanigans stopped?…Why is Kathy Jackson still swanning around buying properties after she was found guilty of charges to answer?…Why was the ASIC and the ACCC so powerless to investigate banking and corporate corruption on the LNP govt’s watch?..How does the IPA get financed ?..Why was Murdoch’s media mob recently given $30 million without explanation? Why is the coal industry STILL getting LNP and govt’ support when it’s bleeding obvious coal is yesterday’s fuel?…all these “unknowns”..and there are more..you may add to them as you wish..I will not dwell on them longer…but there must be dozens..!
But seriously…we..that is YOU and ME and TH’ PUBLIC makes three already know why…we knew why when the first words were uttered by those upper-middle-class bullshit artists who run the show..Like this little beauty from Malcolm.. :
“Malcolm Turnbull ordered a departmental investigation into whether Barnaby Joyce breached the ministerial code of conduct – but his departmental head has now canned the inquiry on the basis that there is “little to be gained” now that the former Nationals leader has moved to the backbench.”
Hey…hey…isn’t THAT just peachy!…that’s a beauty, eh?…: “Oh we decided to can the inquiry into the murder on the basis that the murderee was now deceased. . .”…That’s how it goes, isn’t it? Like when Ashby and Pyne conspired to steal The Speaker’s diary to debase and slander the Speaker of The House…OUR FUCKING DEMOCRACY!!…How do you stop the investigation?..You sack the victim!….Craig Thomson was found guilty..ergo…Jackson MUST be innocent!…bloody marvellous iddn’t it?…The offices of the AWU was raided by the AFP, ergo they MUST be up to something…so it matters not who informed the Media to gain political points..the primary action dismisses any culpability of responsibility for any secondary crime…
So who funds the IPA?…we already know by their refusal to say…
What is the guilt of Barnaby’s salacious relationship costings?…we already know from the travel/hotel data…
Why was Rupert given $30 million?…we already know when the MSMedia pumps out their rubbish polls and bullshit propaganda for the LNP..
Why was Nick Ross driven from his job by Turnbull when he wrote of Turnbull’s rubbish “Multi-Mix NBN technology”?…We can see the evidence of the treason all around us now!
Why was there no banking RC back when it was badly needed?… well…we are seeing so now that the gory details are pouring forth and the LNP is busy shredding into the wee hours every document that will eventually associate and incriminate them when we have that one big Royal Commission into everything IPA / LNP / Murdoch / BCA….and perhaps by then the AFP will be de-politicised so that they can do police work rather than cover-up work!
So sure..there are those “known unknowns”…but given our age and learned knowledge and experience of the lies and cover-ups and utter-utter criminality of ALL the LNP members of The House..you just know they will do..will HAVE TO DO everything in their power to corrupt the authorities that could incriminate them…and that is why when Labor gain office (excepting perhaps the possible corruption of the electoral commission) they will need to create a tribunal to adjudicate on the mountain of accruing evidence of political/corporate venality.
