violence erupts in san francisco as trump supporters and counter protesters clash

Violence erupted at San Francisco’s United Nations Plaza on Saturday as Trump supporters protesting Twitter for censorship clashed with counter-protesters supporting Black Lives Matter and anti-fascists from Antifa and 161 Crew.  

Pro-Trump protesters sporting MAGA hats and waving pro-law enforcement Thin Blue Line flags flocked to downtown San Francisco Saturday in outrage at Twitter which they claim is censoring free speech.  

The free speech rally was organized by right-wing group Team Save America after the social media platform blocked circulation of a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s emails and locked the Trump campaign account this week.

Several hundreds of counter-protesters also turned up and faced off with the conservatives, some holding up Black Lives Matter signs and photos of Breonna Taylor – the black EMT who was shot six times by Louisville cops and killed in March during the botched raid on her home.

Other counterprotesters came waving flags for extreme left-wing group Antifa while some sported t-shirts claiming membership in the anti-fascist action group 161 Crew.

The Team Save America event ended up being called off before it even started as violent clashes broke out between the two sides within minutes of people arriving, leaving several in need of medical assistance. 

Police tried to form a barrier to separate the two sides but fights broke out almost immediately.  

Footage posted online showed rally organizer Philip Anderson being pushed by another man. 

He took the stage around 1 p.m. and was met with plastic water bottles and glass bottles thrown over police barricades at him. 

Anderson later posted graphic photos on social media of his bloodied mouth missing a tooth and wrote that ‘Antifa attacked me for no reason’.

Another pro-Trump supporter, sporting a Trump 2020 t-shirt, was seen having a drink poured on him by a counterprotester as he cowered on the ground.

The event was canceled, but some people on both sides lingered in the area into the afternoon sparking concerns of more violence to come.   

The pro-Trump event was scheduled to demonstrate outside the United Nations Plaza before moving to Twitter’s Market Street headquarters.

Conservatives have hit out at Twitter accusing it of censorship after the social media giant locked Donald Trump’s campaign account.  

On Wednesday, Twitter first blocked the New York Post’s story that Joe Biden met with Ukrainian businessman Vadym Pozharskyi, an associate of his son Hunter, months before Biden pressured Ukrainian officials to fire a prosecutor who was investigating Pozharskyi’s firm.

Accounts that posted the story were also locked including White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal account and the Trump campaign account.   

Twitter and Facebook – which also limited the circulation of the story citing a need to fact check the allegations – were accused of censorship over the move.  

Trump threatened to remove the US legal protections – known as Section 230 – that exempts social media platforms from liability for the material users post on their networks.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Wednesday night apologized for the lack of explanation around the social media giant’s decision to block the story but stood by the company’s move to do so.  

Dorsey tweeted that his company’s actions had been ‘unacceptable’ and admitted there had been a lack of communication surrounding Twitter’s decision.  

‘Our communication around our actions on the NYPost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable,’ he said. 

He then linked to a statement from the company that said it was restricting the link because ‘personal and private information’ had been shared in the story.  

Senate Republicans vowed Thursday to subpoena Dorsey to appear before the Judiciary Committee days before election day over Twitter blocking the story.

Victorian Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton was the star of a reality television series

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton has been spotted in a reality television series dating back to 2006.  

The professor, who has picked-up a bizarre cult following after appearing at months of televised press conferences, popped-up in Channel 7’s Medical Emergency program while he was just an ordinary general practitioner. 

A trapped Melburnian – unable to sleep in locked-down Melbourne – recognised the young Sutton while watching a re-run of the program in the wee hours of Monday morning.

Professor Sutton had been working as a GP at Sandringham Hospital, southeast of Melbourne, where parts of the series were filmed. 

In it, the young Sutton is seen sitting back while observing a colleague attempting to gas a tearful child, who had a bead lodged in her ear and pea stuck up her nose. 

After that fails, Professor Sutton suggests plying the child with a liquid sedative, which she is also reluctant to consume.

Upon taking her medicine, Professor Sutton’s colleagues promise to reward the child with a ‘bravery’ sticker. 

Eventually she takes the drugged cordial, allowing Dr Sutton to go to work on her. 

‘Bingo,’ he exclaims as he extracts the purple bead from the child’s ear. 

He then pulls a stinking, snot-covered pea from her nose.  

Victorians smitten with Professor Sutton have for months now swooned over the chief medical officer’s good looks. 

Several social media sites have been dedicated to the professor, with one amassing thousands of followers. 

But not everyone in locked down Melbourne is a fan. 

‘Jeez he’s aged,’ one person commented on the professor’s 2006 television appearance.

‘He’s a wannabe reality TV star. Once his CHO days are over he’ll pop up on the next series of Survivor and get voted off first week,’ another wrote.

‘Survivor? Personally I’d lay a bet on ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’,’ came the response. 

On a day where Professor Sutton condemned Melburnians to an extended stay in lockdown, some took the opportunity to sink the boot in. 

‘Even then the kids hated him!!! See how smart kids really are!’ one stated. 

‘A failed ‘doctor’ who, like most failures, go into Admin and tell real doctors how to do their job!’ another chimed in. 

On Monday, Professor Sutton conceded that frustration had reached ‘boiling point’ in Melbourne after its 14-day COVID-19 case ­average dropped below five — the threshold for reopening — but the city remained locked down. 

He said authorities needed another 24-48 hours to analyse test results to determine whether an outbreak in Melbourne’s northern suburbs was under control.

Professor Sutton said while Melbourne’s lockdown had been incredibly difficult, the community could take some comfort from the fact that Victoria’s cases were moving downwards.

He warned of the perils of opening up too quickly, pointing to the spread of COVID-19 across Europe.

‘The Czech Republic was lauded, they had a celebration I think in the middle of Prague, to say “we’ve beaten coronavirus”,’ Professor Sutton said.

‘They now have the highest case numbers and death numbers per capita in the world.’

On Monday, Victoria recorded its first instance of zero new COVID cases since June 9. 

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt has called on Premier Daniel Andrews to re-open Victoria, declaring the only reason he hadn’t was because ‘they don’t have confidence in their own contact tracing system’.

Daniel Crennan: ASIC deputy chairman resigns over expense scandal

daniel crennan asic deputy chairman resigns over expense scandal

A top public servant has resigned after spending $70,000 of taxpayer cash on renting a home in Sydney.

Daniel Crennan stepped down as deputy chair of corporate regulator ASIC on Monday after his lavish expenses were exposed on Friday.

ASIC chairman James Shipton has also stepped aside after it was revealed the organisation paid more than $118,000 for him to receive personal tax advice. 

The scandal comes after Australia Post boss Christine Holgate stood aside last week for buying four highly paid executives Cartier watches worth $19,950 as a reward for their hard work.

Mr Crennan, whose base salary is $588,433, was given $70,000 over two years as a rental allowance after moving from Melbourne to Sydney in early 2019.

Last week the auditor-general wrote to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg raising concerns that this tipped his pay above the amount allowed for his role.

Mr Crennan, a former corporate lawyer, said he did not break any rules but has agreed to pay back the cash and has resigned. 

He said in a statement: ‘I had been intending to retire from my position in July 2021. However, in the current circumstances, I have decided that it is in the best interests of ASIC for me to resign now.’ 

Mr Crennan said he was told the rental payments were consistent with ASIC policy but later learned about concerns raised by the auditor-general.

‘I requested that ASIC cease paying me the rental allowance. I also offered and agreed to repay the rental allowance ASIC had paid to me,’ he said.

The auditor-general has recommended an independent review be conducted into issues raised regarding relocation payments, including those given to Mr Crennan.

ASIC boss Mr Shipton, whose base salary last year was $811,654, has agreed to repay the $118,000 he received for tax advice after relocating to Australia from the United States to run ASIC in 2018. 

He has stood aside temporarily as an independent review examines these costs.

Last week Australia Post boss Ms Holgate was stood aside pending a review after telling an estimates hearing she bought colleagues Cartier watches as a reward for securing a deal to do banking in post offices.

She originally said the four watches cost a total of $12,000.

But on Friday Australia Post Chair Lucio Di Bartolomeo said he had been made aware of ‘further details of the purchases’ and wished to clarify the record ‘as a matter of urgency’.

He said the four items were purchased in November 2018 at a cost of $7,000, $4,750, $4,400 and $3,800, coming to a total of $19,950.

Mr Di Bartolomeo said Australia Post will continue to participate transparently with the budget estimates process and fully cooperate with the investigation to be conducted by the federal communications and finance departments.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison told the parliament on Thursday the gifts were disgraceful and appalling and demanded Ms Holgate step aside. 

Australia Post is a commercial business that does not get taxpayer funding – but its only shareholder is the Australian government which means its finances are scrutinised by politicians.

NRL Grand Final: Sportsbet pays out $5million to gamblers who backed Cameron Smith Clive Churchill

nrl grand final sportsbet pays out 5million to gamblers who backed cameron smith clive churchill

One lucky punter raked in $40,000 from a $100 bonus bet in last night’s NRL grand final, and Sportsbet has lost over $5million after a massive blunder.

The betting agency deciding to pay out Cameron Smith as the man of the match at half time when the Melbourne Storm went in the sheds with the score at 22-0 over the struggling Penrith Panthers. 

The 37-year-old skipper was in scintillating form in the opening 40 minutes and scored a pivotal try under the posts just before the break.

He appeared to be a shoo-in for his first Clive Churchill medal until 22-year-old speedster Ryan Papenhuyzen put his stamp on the game.

The Melbourne fullback was not only safe under the high ball in the slippery, windy conditions, he also scored an 80-meter try at the beginning of the second half which gave Melbourne an unassailable lead.

Later in the match when the gritty Panthers clawed their way back, he leaped from the field of play and batted a Nathan Clearly kick for touch over his head, giving Melbourne possession at a crucial time. 

New South Wales coach Brad Fitler was so impressed Papenhuyzen’s performance, he named him in the Blues’ State of Origin squad, with the first match set to kick off next week on October 4.

The red-faced betting agency had to pay out all bets for both Smith and Papenhuyzen.

‘After 430 NRL games including eight deciders, we figured he would know how to play out a whole match,’ Rich Hummerston from Sportsbet said.

‘The silver lining is the $1.3million we paid out early on Labor to win the 2016 election doesn’t seem so bad.’

Meanwhile, one punter won $40,000 after placing a $100 six-leg same game multi-bet on the grand final.

He backed Penrith’s Brian To’o, Josh Masour, Stephen Crichton and the Storm’s Suliasi Vunifalu, Ryan Papenhuyzen and Justin Olam to score a try at any time during the match.

The 24-year-old Twitch streamer said on Twitter, the winnings will go towards ‘an eventual house deposit one day’.
