Australian Media Silent for 407 Days on Julian Assange

The Australian media seems transfixed by events unfolding in the United States. Seemingly addicted to propaganda mainstream outlets like CNN and the Washington Post, they bay for Donald Trump’s blood. Surely, they surmise, the people will not elect him again. This narrow focus sells copy. It won’t change a vote …

Journalism is in crisis and so is democracy

One of the great eyeopeners of the current Covid 19 “crisis” for those of us who still care is the absolute lack of integrity of corporate mainstream media in all Western countries. There seems to be a determination to shape and mould the news to fit a narrative, regardless of …

What is your state of mind? Do you sleep well?

Hey, I’m glad you stopped by – you’re just the person whose opinon I need right now. Take a seat, grab your favourite beverage and let’s have a little chat. Nothing serious really – I’d just like to take your soul’s temperature. What’s that? You don’t believe in souls? Let’s …

When Thinking Becomes An Act of Rebellion

The New York Times recently took time out to ridicule people who questioned the official narrative about Covid-19. I am one of those people and I don’t give a flying frog’s leg for the NYT’s opinion. This is the same publication that clings to the Trump/Russia collusion delusion and has …

What really happened to Diana Spencer?

Diana Spencer is, to my mind, a great enigma. A young girl thrown in at the deepest of deep ends and expected to swim amongst a school of sharks. She was no shrinking violet and became quite a thorn in the Royal family’s side. I’ve read the theories about her …

Is There Already a Cure For Coronavirus?

There is a lot of doom and gloom being pedalled by most mainstream media outlets about the effects of coronavirus and how long this pandemic may last. A coronavirus cure seems to be months, perhaps years away. The situation is quite serious with the disease seeming to be particularly deadly …

Maybe we need a little March Madness

So, this is March madness. Empty supermarket aisles, a toilet paper shortage, politicians slashing regulations and pumping money into the economy like crazy, CEOS resigning en masse, travel basically ceasing, major sport playing to empty stadiums, bars closing (now I’m scared) and a thousand talking heads insisting that the world …

Shameful, Pathetic & Sad

I’m staring up incredulously at an earnest young man telling me and the scattered “crowd” that the young people of Australia are uniting behind Assange and that revolution of the working class is all but assurred. He means it. I don’t know what he’s been taking, but I want some, …

When you come at the King

You’d best not miss. It’s a classic line that I’d attributed to Shakespeare but actually comes from the classic TV series The Wire. The line has been running through my head for the past couple of days as the dust settles from the failed attempt to remove Donald Trump from …
