25.01.22. WASHINGTON — NYT. President Biden is considering deploying several thousand U.S. troops, as well as warships and aircraft, to NATO allies in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, an expansion of American military involvement amid mounting fears of a Russian incursion into Ukraine, according to administration officials. The move would signal a major pivot for the Biden administration, which up until recently was taking a restrained stance on Ukraine, out of fear of provoking Russia into invading. But as President Vladimir V. Putin has ramped up his threatening actions toward Ukraine, and talks between American and Russian officials have failed to discourage him, the administration is now moving away from its do-not-provoke strategy.

25.01.22. If you’ve been wondering about the extent of voter fraud in America, we may be seeing a staggering amount of either fraud or grotesque negligence in Wisconsin voter rolls. A review of the state’s voter roles showed that 569,277 voters registered on January 1, 1918. Of that number, 20% of these people, all of whom must be at least 124 years old, voted last November. Biden “won” in Wisconsin by 20,682 votes…. For regular American Thinker readers, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Roughly two weeks ago, Jay Valentine wrote about the extent of fraud he and his team have discovered as they’ve uploaded voter rolls (which often had corrupted data that seemed deliberately intended to keep information opaque) into Valentine’s system.

25.01.22. If we are in any way to be thankful for the bloody two-year pandemic it has to be that the miserable and tiresome Australia haters and the noisy activist cretins that drive the Aboriginal industry—the same ones recently arrested for allegedly setting fire to the Old Parliament House in Canberra, see here, have remained ‘locked’ down. A recent poll suggests that those interviewed were largely ignorant about Australia Day. The reason for that should be upon the heads of teachers and idiots like Bruce Pascoe who choose to promulgate their own twaddle and lies—although, both for different reasons.
The proposal that January 26 should be a day of truth telling should not be dismissed lightly, especially by conservatives.
As Martin Luther King said, nothing is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. It is hard to have serious discussion about the meaning of European settlement unless we first can agree on the facts. Yet fewer than four out of 10 Australians know which event they are supposed to be celebrating or mourning on Wednesday, according to a survey last week by Compass Polling. More
Two years ago today, Australia first joined the COVID club. We’d been hearing about a strange new virus circulating in a Chinese city — little known outside the country at the time — for a few weeks, as it grew from a cluster of a pneumonia-like illness into a city-wide outbreak. The 11 million residents of Wuhan went into lockdown on January 23, a move the World Health Organization said at the time was “unprecedented in public health history”. More
Several Coalition MPs have vowed to boycott the massive Chinese language messaging app after it was revealed that the Prime Minister’s account had been taken over by a Chinese company. The popular Chinese messaging application WeChat appears to have blocked access to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s account, leading one senator to call for a parliament-wide boycott of the service. Senator James Paterson, chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security, said on Monday the prime minister’s team had been having trouble accessing the WeChat account for months. It was finally taken out of the government’s control in early January despite formal representations from Morrison’s office, he told radio station 4BC. More
The British Medical Journal (BMJ) has demanded the full and immediate release of all data related to COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, saying it is in the public’s interest to do so. BMJ, a weekly peer-reviewed medical trade journal published by the trade union and the British Medical Association, called for the release of the data in an editorial published on Wednesday. “Today, despite the global rollout of COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, the anonymised participant-level data underlying the trials for these new products remain inaccessible to doctors, researchers, and the public—and are likely to remain that way for years to come,” BMJ said.

25.01.22. Those who have updated their Microsoft Windows operating system in the last week will be interested in what they have done to improve their user’s spellchecker language. Writers will be amazed when their stories come out without any offensive language or colourful turn of phrases. It’s all going to be cleaned up by the wokishness of a dumb computer, and programme writer. For example, users won’t be using many words that involve gender, such as male, female, Martian, or boy and the like. If the ‘compositor’ wants to alter the names of things, like cockroaches, blue tits, blackbirds, Dutch courage, homo sapiens or French fries, it will be auto-Woke-corrected. Luckily there’s a manual over-ride.Rick Manning describes the new Microsoft spell checker: More

24.01.22. Before co-founding Bondi Partners, the Honourable Joe Hockey served as Australia’s Ambassador to the United States of America, taking up his posting in Washington in January 2016. Notably, Mr. Hockey was responsible for Australia’s relationship with the US during the final year of President Obama’s tenure and the first three years of President Trump’s term. As Ambassador, Mr. Hockey emphasised the importance of a free and fair trade and an investment partnership between the US and Australia, while promoting innovative infrastructure investment throughout the US. Now retired, Joe spearheads his firm, Bondi Partner’s strategic direction in both the US and Australia. As Joe said during the Ben Fordham Radio 2GB interview last week, the Morrison government “walked away” from the Australian company Ellume to spend $60 million on imported RATs. The article below mentions a few names involved in the mix, including the controversial TGA. Morning Mail makes no assumptions of any wrong doing and such. However, the result is a rotten deal for Australia and that stinks to high heaven! First listen carefully to the interview below. Then figure the rest out yourself! More
