  • Forget January 6 2020. Remember Beautiful Monica From The 2022 Protests Against The Bureaucratic Persecution And False Imprisonment Of Novak Djokovic In Australia

    01/13/2023 10:40:31 PM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 5 replies
    A year ago today I made this post (in the link below the title above) about the disgraceful exclusion from the Australian Open of world number one tennis player at that time, Novak Djokovic, because he refused to surrender his bodily autonomy and get the "compulsory" vaccination. Forget the politicized over focus on the excesses of January 6, 2020, in Washington, but remember January 2022 in Melbourne, Australia if you want a better world. Seeing gorgeous, God-fearing Monica almost every day at the Free Nole protests (Nole is Novak's Serbian nickname) was one of the great pleasures of that time...

    Novak Djokovic has arrived in Australia almost a year after he was deported over his stance against COVID-19 vaccination, Tennis Australia confirmed Wednesday. Djokovic will open his 2023 campaign in Adelaide as he prepares for a shot at a 10th Australian Open title. >snip< Djokovic missed the Grand Slam event last year because of his refusal to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Australia has since lifted strict rules for unvaccinated travelers. Immigration Minister Andrew Giles last month confirmed that Djokovic, who had been facing a possible three-year ban after being deported, has been granted a visa.

    Former world number one Novak Djokovic arrived in Australia on Tuesday (Dec 27) almost one year after he was deported for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, tennis officials said. The nine-time Australian Open champion was initially banned from the country for three years after losing a high-stakes legal battle in January over his vaccine status. Australia has since lifted its requirement for visitors to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

    MELBOURNE, Australia — Novak Djokovic is set to be granted a visa to play in next year’s Australian Open despite his high-profile deportation in January. The Australian Broadcasting Corp. on Tuesday said it had confirmed newspaper reports that the immigration minister had overturned a potential three-year exclusion period for Djokovic. The Australian Border Force has previously said an exclusion period could be waived in certain circumstances — and that each case would be assessed on its merits. ... The 21-time Grand Slam singles champion wasn’t allowed to defend his Australian Open title this year after a tumultuous 10-day legal saga...

    Greetings, Babylon Bee readers. You may or may not be aware of the case of Novak v. City of Parma, Ohio. A quick rundown for the layperson: Mr. Anthony Novak was temporarily jailed for creating a parody Facebook page of his local police department. He has thus far been unsuccessful in suing for damages, as the courts have ruled the police have qualified immunity, and so is asking SCOTUS to review the case. While the knockoff Babylon Bee site The Onion filed a petition in support of Mr. Novak, we reject Mr. Novak's claim that parody is protected free speech,...

    Tony Bobulinski, one of Hunter Biden’s former business associates, is worried that former elite FBI agent Timothy Thibault may have helped hide information he provided the bureau about his relationship with the Biden family, directly familiar sources told The Washington Free Beacon. Except that wasn’t supposed to happen: “Someone please remind Democrats that according to the precedent established during Alexander Vindman, nobody gets to question the veracity, the motives and the integrity of great Patriot and naval veteran Tony Bobulinski while giving testimony to the Senate tomorrow. Check and mate.” Bobulinski was brave enough to give his story to the...

    Could the Biden administration all be some huge joke? A parody or some crazy dark comedy in which a career political hack with rapidly advancing dementia somehow becomes president and bumbles around as his radical handlers begin implementing a dizzying number of measures to weaken America and endanger Americans? Is there anything the Biden administration is doing that would make it clear that this is not actually what’s happening here? The latest appalling news to come from Biden’s handlers is that they are allowing illegal immigrants to board commercial planes using their arrest warrants as identification. No, they’re not then...

    The White House sidestepped a question about why it continues to let untested and unvaccinated illegal immigrants into the United States while tennis star Novak Djokovic is not allowed to enter to play in this year's U.S. Open. Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy questioned the Biden administration about the paradox during Monday's news briefing. "How come migrants are allowed to come into this country unvaccinated, but world-class tennis players are not?" he asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. "The U.S. government cannot discuss the details of individual visa cases. Due to privacy reasons, the U.S. also does not comment...
  • Justice In Sport: Australia Cheated Novak -It Was A Crime

    01/28/2022 2:44:04 PM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 37 replies
    Rafael Nadal is a truly great tennis player but the once great sporting nation of Australia has abandoned it's own proud history of sportsmanship to persecute Nadal's rival Djokovic for insisting on his rights to medical privacy and personal control of what substances are injected into his own body. I rate the chances pretty low of Cheif Commissioner Shane Patton doing anything to bring Novak's vicious criminal persecutors to justice. But I have started the formal process by demanding an investigation and one young police officer took the first step toward doing that. Patton should support her. And when and...

    Surfing icon Kelly Slater will be banned from competing in Australia if he refuses to get the Covid jab, the Sports Minister Richard Colbeck has warned. The 11-time world surfing champion, 49, has is yet to reveal his vaccination status but has made waves online railing against jab mandates and posting anti-vax rhetoric to his social media pages during the pandemic. Mr Colbeck said the American will face a wipeout similar to world No. 1 tennis star Novak Djokovic who was sensationally booted from the country on the eve of the Australian Open, if he fails to prove he's vaccinated.

    Defending Australian Open Champion Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia, the day before commencement of 2022 tournament play. He entered the country on a visa including a medical exemption based on recent Covid infection. Due to public outry over “special treatment,” his visa was revoked upon arrival in the country, only to be reinstated by a court. It was later revoked by an immigration minister, whose decision was upheld by another court, sending Djokovic packing — potentially for three years. This draconian act puts Djokovic at a serious disadvantage in his Grand Slam rivalry with Rafael Nadal, who is competing...

    Tennis Australia demanded to confiscate the group’s signs because they were deemed “inappropriate”.. Video has emerged of tennis fans at the Australian Open tournament being harassed by an official ordering them to hand over all their homemade Novak Djokovic signs or be thrown out. In the wake of the Australian authorities revoking the tennis star’s visa and holding him hostage for days, it appears that fans are now not even allowed to express any support for their favourite player. The footage shows a fan at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne being approached by an official who eventually admits that...

    Serbian tennis champion Novak Djokovic is the latest innocent victim to be sacrificed on the altar of COVID at the Australian cult headquarters. The reigning Australian Open champ has not been vaccinated against COVID but he has already contracted it and recovered from it. Two separate medical boards cleared him to return to play without the vaccination, concluding that his natural immunity should satisfy Australia’s supposed safety protocols. Australia agreed and allowed Djokovic entry, but then he made the mistake of celebrating his travels, and all hell broke loose. (snip) The senior Djokovic said this isn’t about safety but about...

    Could We Have Prevented the Attacks? by William Norman Grigg During the 1990s, the FBI uncovered clues indicating that bin Laden was planning to attack America with hijacked airliners. This information was never shared with local police. On April 19th, police arrested 30-year-old Leo V. Felton and 21-year-old Erica Chase after they had tried to pass counterfeit $20 bills at a Dunkin’ Donuts in East Boston. After the pair was booked and processed into the Nashua Street Jail, police turned the investigation over to the Secret Service. Seven days later, Felton was free on bail, despite the fact that federal ...

    THINNER GRUEL [Jonah Goldberg] has a "defense" of Joe Wilson. For the most part, the piece is a dull, he-said she-said about the controversy so far, generally sympathetic to Wilson, with some sneaky bits hid in the dull prose in order to make them seem more reasonable. For example the author, Mary Jacoby, says "But no sale of uranium ever took place, Wilson reported, and that conclusion is not in dispute." That's true, but Bush never said Iraq purchased the uranium, he merely said Iraq sought it. Wilson said Iraq didn't and that his cryptic sweet-tea swilling conversations proved...
  • Novak memoir written from crass superficial thinking

    02/10/2014 8:29:02 PM PST · by Epistolizer · 3 replies
    Memoirs have always been a favorite literary genre. Some, like Winston Churchill's war memoirs, track important events from a single, and commanding, vantage point, yielding an insight into the contingencies of history. Others, like St. Augustine's Confessions or John Henry Newman's Apologia pro Vita Sua, detail a person's intellectual and spiritual development over time. Some, like Katharine Graham's Personal History, are just fun. Michael Novak's Writing from Left to Right: My Journey from Liberal to Conservative is more Forrest Gump than Churchill. It evidences none of the brutal self-inquiry displayed by Augustine or Newman, and, unlike Graham's memoir, it is...
