12.06.21.  “China is on the verge of launching a “grey zone” war against Australia that would see flotillas of armed, unmarked and unsanctioned militia ships deployed on incursions through Australian waters in a bid to bully the nation into bowing to Beijing’s will. The stark warning comes from Taiwan’s Foreign Minister, Joseph Wu, as the heads of the world’s leading democracies gather for a G7 summit widely anticipated to address China’s growing hostility and the risk of a global conflict involving the communist regime. Dr Wu said Taiwan had been “in the frontline” against Chinese misinformation, economic coercion and military brinkmanship for decades, and urged “like-minded democracies” to form a united front against Beijing aggression.” More

12.06.21.  There is little interest in Meghan Markle’s life—let alone her book. An obnoxious woman she is and what she has done to the reputation of the Royal Family is reprehensible to say the least. Perhaps the best medicine for her is to treat the meddling creature with ridicule. Like the use of words that rhyme, Meghan Markle, for example sets the stage for a bit of fun. The first to come to my mind was, ‘Murgen Treacle’—something murky and gooey, a sickly sweet that cloys in one’s throat.
I have largely avoided the House of Windsor’s recent travails, the rapid departure of a subset of their own who rejected the privileges of royal birth and marriage, preferring the sort of fame normally associated with celebrity chefs and the inventor of jazzercise. Leave these people alone with their excruciating emotional pain, I thought. But that was never going to last because the artist presently known as the Duchess of Sussex, has knocked out a book; a children’s book no less and has done so presumably because children’s books have fewer words. No staring at a blank page with the grim task of knocking out 100,000 of them in vaguely coherent sentences or whispering sweet scandals to a ghostwriter for Meghan. The Bench’s word count comes in at a neat 169 words. More

12.06.21.  The ABC’s Paul Barry appears to have a “double-standard” when it comes to defending reporting by the national broadcaster, according to Sky News Australia Digital Editor Jack Houghton. The Australian’s Sharri Markson has been leading the world with her coverage of the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. International newspapers have followed her lead, including with revelations employees at the Wuhan Institute of Virology fell ill and were admitted to hospital in November 2019, prior to the first recorded COVID-19 case. Mr Houghton said that Barry had been on a taxpayer funded “crusade” to discredit Markson’s work, mainly her reports which mention the theory that the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. “While the ABC may be happy to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars defending the publication of unprovable allegations, it appears to have a double-standard when it comes to actually important investigative journalism,” Mr Houghton said. “This demonstrates a contrast between how much evidence you need to publish life-destroying allegations against a conservative politician and how much evidence you need to raise questions about the biggest global catastrophe in living memory.” More

12.06.21.  China’s President Xi Jinping continues to clarify his agenda with alarming frequency. Buoyed by crusty-old communists from a bygone era Xi gathers support for expansionism and sooner the better it would appear. Obviously, the old guard sees Xi as the man to do the job given that he is 67 years-old—running out of time for such grandiose. The recent step up of military might and aggression in the South China Seas, and their investment in Pacific nations, also those in Africa, suggests a ten-year plan of execution is quite plausible.
Beijing has arrested members of ultra-left groups, including staunch supporters of Mao Zedong, before the communist party’s 100th anniversary celebrations next month. The detentions, which began on May 12 and were revealed by a news agency in Taiwan, show President Xi Jinping’s determination to suppress any criticism of the regime and prevent dissidents from promoting an alternative history of the party. Mr Xi will look to suppress any discussion of darker moments in the last century such as the Great Famine, the Cultural Revolution and the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.

12.06.21.  “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s vaccine advisory committee plans to hold an emergency meeting this month to discuss the higher than expected reports of heart inflammation in young males following a second dose of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The June 18 meeting will address the conditions that are very infrequent and have not been directly linked to the vaccines, the agency announced on June 10. The first portion of the meeting will feature an update on COVID-19 vaccine safety, including myocarditis cases seen after the administration of vaccines built on messenger RNA technology, according to the meeting agenda. Myocarditis is a rare disorder that leads to heart inflammation. Causes include the flu and COVID-19.” (We post this news with no recommendations one way or the other—it’s your body, your choice! MM. Ed.) More

12.06.21.  Sky News has obtained exclusive vision of a security breach inside the quarantine hotel at the centre of Melbourne’s Delta [Indian] outbreak. Security camera footage from the Novotel/Ibis hotel in Melbourne’s CBD from April 27 shows a man making his way into the carpark before prising a number plate off the back of a vehicle. Sky News understands the vehicle belongs to the Australian Defence Force and the incident was reported to police. The man managed to gain access to the carpark by making his way into the foyer at 408 Lonsdale which is an apartment block at the back of the quarantine hotels. Head of the owners’ corporation at 408 Lonsdale Sarah Paparo has told Sky News this is one incident among many others demonstrating the hotel quarantine facility was not as safe as claimed. Ms Paparo also said a staircase used by hotel quarantine workers to get to staff areas is owned by 408 Lonsdale and is also used by those who live in the apartments. The Novotel/Ibis hotel quarantine has been in the spotlight recently after health officials discovered a genomic link between a returned traveller and a Melbourne family who became infected with the Delta strain. COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria has been asked for a response. More

11.06.21.  A fine thing it must have been in the courtroom when the legal jackals for the defence watched with glee as their prey, Australia’s decorated soldier, a hero, buckles under their savagery and cowardice by breaking down—a scene not seen on the madness of a battlefield. How the jackals must be. How to finish him off is now the topic in their poisonous huddle!
All day, Ben Roberts-Smith’s ­descriptions in courtroom 18D of battlefield encounters – machine gun fire from insurgents, clearing Taliban compounds, crawling up cliffs with the barest of cover – had been clinical and precise. But shortly after 4pm, the former Special Air Service Regiment soldier finally broke down in tears. Folded into his chair in the witness box, the 202cm-tall veteran described the battle at Tizak, in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province, for which he received the Victoria Cross. More

11.06.21.  Sky News host Peta Credlin says global economic partnership arrangements are “about more than trade” – they are “a signal to the wider world about who matters and who you trust”. “As current chair of the G7, what Boris Johnson is really trying to do here is refashion the old Euro-centric, economics-focused G7, into something that’s global and geopolitically focused,” she said. “He wants it to be the D10 – the ten major democracies: with Britain, the US, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, and Canada joined by Australia, South Korea, and India. “If at some point the G7 can formally segue into the D10, that will be good for our standing in the wider world as well as a key signal to China that the democracies are taking a stand against regional bullying and unfair trade practices.” Ms Credlin said this of course would not come without some awkwardness given China remains our biggest trading partner and also the greatest strategic challenge. “This is where, as the emerging democratic superpower, India has such a big role to play. As a country that understands commerce and respects the rule of law, India could readily meet some of the supply chain challenges that losing China could bring,” she said. “An important task for a prime minister with an increasingly deft grasp of diplomacy will be kickstarting the Australia-India free trade talks.” More
