“Today I got the Pfizer vaccine in the event I need to travel to Tokyo for the Olympics,” tweeted Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk this week. Such understatement is typical of the great woman. More
Good Morning America! Whom on Earth would have thought that with such a wonderful Democrat win for the demented Joe Biden that the state of the nation could collapse so magnificently—now tell me who? Millions of people I hear you say. As the headline says and that should be taken on board by the Australian voter also: ‘Start Making Better Decisions on Who You Vote For’.
Florida was the No. 1 relocation destination for Americans in 2020, according to Move.org. New York and California took first and second place in the contest for which states had the most people choosing to leave. Justin Pearson is a 27-year-old truck loader for a Target distribution center. A resident of Hemet, California, for 22 years, Pearson moved to the town of Riverside for another three years until the dramatic change in policies and rising cost of living made it impossible for him to live on his own. There also was no way he could afford to buy his own home, he said. In order to survive at all, he fled to Lake City, Florida. More

10.06.21. Michaelia Cash has placed the Religious Discrimination Bill back on the political coffee table. After the faithful expressed frustration with Christian Porter’s failure to pass the 2019 election promise, the new Attorney-General has quietly started meeting with church groups. Remember when Scott Morrison said fixing laws that discriminated against LGBTI kids was his top priority? “I will be taking action to ensure amendments are introduced as soon as practicable to make it clear that no student of a non-state school should be expelled on the basis of their sexuality,” the Messiah from the Shire preached on October 12, 2018, during the heady days of the Wentworth by-election and Philip Ruddock’s review.

10.06.21. How dare they cancel the Queen! I shall write a stern letter to …er, well, somebody damned important—bloody hide of them! I shall halt my donations from this moment forth, and for ever!
The Queen has become the latest victim of cancel culture after students at an Oxford University college voted to remove her portrait from their common room. Students at Magdalen, one of Oxford’s most traditional colleges with a long association with the Royal Family, voted to remove the portrait on the basis it symbolised “recent colonial history.” The portrait, a colourised print of a famous 1952 photograph of the Queen, has hung for years undisturbed in Magdalen’s Middle Common Room (MCR).
However, a MCR committee agreed to remove it because “for some students depictions of the monarch and the British monarchy represent recent colonial history,” UK media reports. More
10.06.21. Editorial from The Australian: The emerging Pacific Century remains the defining economic, defence and geopolitical story of the new millennium. It represents a shift in the centre of global power away from the Atlantic sphere of Europe and the US towards an increasingly China-dominated Asia. For Australia, the shift presents major economic opportunities, which are well understood. So are the risks the world has been slow to confront. The Gillard government’s 2012 Asian Century White Paper attempted to focus domestic debate on the issue. It said the (re) coupling of the major centres of global population (China and India) and the major centres of global economic growth meant that “Australian businesses and their employees can be big winners from the Asian century, with new and expanding opportunities for our miners, manufacturers, farmers and a broad range of service providers’’.

10.06.21. While digesting the ‘return of the Tamil family’ it should be remembered in the moments of enormous compassion that this family has been relentless in its refusal to accept the many court decisions that has cost the taxpayers about $6 million, but Labor cares not about that—their record on border control is historic. Sky News host Peta Credlin says it is not right to try and paint the issue of illegal immigration on the argument of “compassion on the left versus cold-hearts or cruelty on the right” and it is not immoral to “stop the boats and keep them stopped”. “There’s nothing compassionate about deaths at sea, there’s nothing compassionate about lining the pockets of criminal people smuggler gangs that prey on the vulnerable,” she said. “There’s nothing compassionate about a limited amount of resettlement places in this country going mainly to young men who can pay their way here from the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent while leaving women and children for years and years, in the world’s most over-crowded refugee camps.” More
