Last month, the federal government, in a ham-fisted way, cancelled the Victorian government’s largely ceremonial Belt and Road Initiative agreement with China. Yet Canberra’s own critical infrastructure register shows China controls the Victorian energy market from generation to transmission to retail supply. More
19.05.21. MediaWatch host Paul Barry seems “determined to undermine” the investigative journalism of Sharri Markson, according to Sky News host Chris Kenny. The host of the ABC’s flagship program last year said Ms Markson “should have told readers that almost every virus expert had dismissed the lab escape theory”. Mr Kenny said this is despite Ms Markson’s critics now admitting there is a 40 per cent chance of her findings on the origins of COVID-19 being the reality. One of the Nine newspapers said officials in the US and Australian governments put the “probability of a leak as high as 40 per cent”. “Sharri’s reporting has only ever said that this was a possibility that warranted serious investigation and now, even her critics admit that what they once called an unfounded conspiracy theory is now a 40 per cent chance of being the reality,” Mr Kenny said.

In the stately reading room in the country’s oldest museum, Laura McBride casts her eye over a passage from a 1920s edition of the Australian Museum magazine. “The mind of a savage is simple, passionate and changeable, his brain soon wearies of continuous effort,” it reads. More
19.05.21. Sky News host Cory Bernardi says “politicians love saving us in a crisis, not from a crisis” because “they get no credit” if they prevent something from happening. “You see if they prevent something from happening they get no credit. For political authority, they need to overstate the severity of the issue, scare you witless, and then have you experience less pain than originally forecast. “Let’s acknowledge that every death is a heartfelt event for someone but we can’t wrap ourselves in cotton wool forever. “Let’s accept that we all have an expiry date and that it’s reasonable to think that a life taken prematurely is more tragic than a life lost in its ninth decade, even one that’s lost through government incompetence.” More
A south-west Victorian koala population is being moved from its Cape Otway home for the eighth time in six years after eating its way through the local manna gum habitat. The koala population in the Great Ocean Road town, three hours’ west of Melbourne, boomed in the mid-2000s and quickly outgrew its food source, resulting in the secret culling of 700 koalas in 2015 due to “overpopulation issues”.

19.05.21. Animal activists plead with farmers not to kill mice plaguing regional NSW. This presents the argument for farmers and legislators alike as to what presents the most danger to good citizens and what creatures should be culled for the overall benefit of the nation—does it not? A global animal rights organisation is pleading with farmers not to kill the mice plaguing regional New South Wales. PETA argues the rodents shouldn’t be denied their “right” to food because of the “dangerous notion of human supremacy”. The infestation devastating farmers and their livelihoods are on track to cause a $100 million damage bill. Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack has condemned the organisation as “idiots who have never been outside the city”. More
All we have to worry about is “what if the Labor party wins the next election?”, not who the US president is.
Sure, we might get attacked by a mongrel Chinese Dictator’s storm troopers, but with luck the rest of the world would react to push them back to the Middle Kingdom.
We might get another wave of the Chinese pandemic and give our Pollies more opportunity to lock us down once more.
We might have to put up with the ABC for some more years, but in the main you can turn those bastards off, so no real issues. This is unlike many countries that suffer, as Cal Thomas explains, because of a crook US election result: More
