Auctioneer Haesley Cush thought he had auctioned every before — until now. AAP Image/Claudia Baxter.I have auctioned some amazing stuff over the years. Some great homes, some amazing experiences for charities, beautiful pieces of art and artefacts from around a the world.Regularly people ask, “What’s the craziest thing you’ve been asked to auction?”.But yesterday I received a call from my dear friend, Diane O’Reilly, who asked if I could do an auction at the ‘Mother of Boys Lunch’ next Friday 11th May.She is emceeing the event with Kylie Lang and they’re are raising money for the Red Rose Foundation.As I was checking my diary, I casually asked her “What are we selling?”.There was a pause.“Well Haesley you’ve probably not done one of these before” she said“Try me,” I jeered condescendingly.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours ago“We are auctioning off a vaginal rejuvenation treatment”. Long pause.“You’re right” I replied after what seemed like an inappropriate amount of time.“What is that?”.Diane went on to explain the amazing work conducted by Brisbane gynaecologist, Rod Allen. She went to great lengths to explain that the procedure was ideal for many woman, that it was not cosmetic and it was a highly in demand procedure that could be life changing for may women.After her pep talk and knowing I would have a room full of captive women. I flicked through the diary to ensure I could recite my new insights in modern magical medicine.Unfortunately I will be overseas!!But in true Mothers of Boys spirit Diane jumped straight on the phone and my good mate Peter Bergin, from Place Estate Agents will be wielding his gavel over what I can honestly say is the most surprising prize I have ever seen on an auction catalogue.

Republican consultant Roger Stone, who is currently facing a federal indictment related to the Mueller investigation, spoke to our news partner, CBS12, on Saturday evening, three days before his trial is set to begin.Stone did not comment on his case due to a court-imposed gag order.He says it has been “quite some time” since he has spoken with President Trump, to whom Stone served as a close confidant leading up to the 2016 campaign.Stone believes the current impeachment inquiry against the President could hurt the Democratic party, while galvanizing Trump’s supporters. He adds that impeachment by the House of Representatives is an “almost certainty,” and suggested that Trump use campaign funds to advertise in states with Republican senators who might be “undecided” in a potential Senate impeachment trial.According to Stone, “I think the president has not only an obligation but a responsibility to investigate official corruption by government officials. Donald Trump did nothing wrong,” referencing the President’s call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky.As for the Democrats’ allegation that the call shows Trump pressuring a foreign leader for dirt on a political rival, Stone says, “I think the president’s done nothing wrong. I read the transcript of that phone call, as did every American, and I still don’t see any impropriety about what the president did.”Stone thinks Trump supporters will rise up if impeachment occurs, adding, “I don’t think it will be violence but i do think there will be a political revolution. I think that the Republicans might well take back the house because of this impeachment drive.”In terms of his overall thoughts on President Trump’s style in handling the impeachment inquiry, Stone states, “He’s a brawler, he likes a good fight. he’s fearless. you can’t judge him on bass of judging past presidents. He has a unique style. It’s a style some people love, its a style that grates others.”
Police have issued an ultimatum to protesters they’ve now surrounded at the city’s Polytechnic University.Protesters who spent days trying to keep police from getting into the campus are now desperately trying to get out.Police used tear gas and rubber bullets on a surging crowd. The U.S. is condemning what the Trump administration calls the unjustified use of force against pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong.A senior official Sunday said China needs to protect the semi-autonomous city’s freedom and that both sides need to refrain from further violence.The official also said the White House wants both sides to engage in constructive dialogue.The threat of violence continues to escalate in Hong Kong as police sealed off a university and protestors armed themselves with bows and arrows.
As impeachment hearings into President Trump enter a second week, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says the President wants to testify before Congress.Bondi, who now works as a special adviser to Mr. Trump during the impeachment inquiry, says the President wants to testify because he did nothing wrong.She told “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday, “No human being should have to come in and prove their innocence, ever.”However, Bondi thinks it is unlikely that Trump will end up testifying under oath.She adds, “No one would advise him to testify because this is a sham court.”

An airline mechanic pleaded guilty on Wednesday to sabotaging a jetliner with 150 people aboard at Miami International Airport, causing the pilot to abort the flight just before its scheduled takeoff.Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani entered his plea in federal court in Miami. He previously admitted to investigators that he had committed the sabotage in order to receive overtime to fix the American Airlines jet, which he later did.“I do admit the guilt,” Alani said through an Arabic interpreter.The 60-year-old man, a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Iraq, has been an airline mechanic for 30 years.According to prosecutors, he has a brother in Iraq who may be involved with the Islamic State extremist group. They add that Alani made statements wishing Allah would use “divine powers” in order to harm non-Muslims.Investigators also say he had Islamic State videos on his phone that show mass murders, and that he did not tell the FBI that he traveled to Iraq last March, following his arrest.Despite the evidence, Alani was not charged with any terrorism-related crimes. He has pleaded guilty to attempted destruction of an aircraft, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence. He is scheduled to be sentenced on March 4.Court documents reveal the sabotage involved gluing Styrofoam inside the nose of the Boeing 737, in order to disable the crew’s ability to monitor airspeed, altitude and the pitch of the plane. Authorities explain that if the flight had taken off as intended on July 17 for Nassau, Bahamas, it would have crashed.Alani’s actions on that day were caught on surveillance video, and co-workers also identified him as the suspect.Jonathan Meltz, Alani’s attorney, says his client has led a “law-abiding life” and that he did not intend to harm the aircraft or the people aboard. He adds that Alani’s sole motivation was “just trying to provide for his family like most of us try to do.”
