Why I believe Trump will win in November

Just three days before the 2016 US election I told a fellow ALP member, “I believe Trump will win.” He looked at me incredulously. “What about the polls?” I shrugged and smiled. “What about the tape of him bragging about grabbing them by the pussy?” “It won’t matter,” I replied. …

Does the media cycle kill stories deliberately?

Have you noticed how the media cycle never follows through on a story? Is that deliberate or is just the news cycle? Or haven’t you noticed? Have you become absorbed in the news of the hour? Do you salivate at the latest contrived scandal/crisis/manufactured outrage? Do you rush to social …

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 …

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 …

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 …

MSM dying by its own hand

Mainstream media stenographers masquerading as journalists  have been furiously clinging to the belief that it was Russia that hacked the DNC  server and distributed Hillary Clinton’s emails to WikiLeaks. This is despite the Forensic analysis  conducted by the former technical director of the NSA William Binney and other technical experts …

Did Australia Spy On The Trump Campaign

One of the very interesting and largely ignored aspects of the entire Trump collusion delusion farce is the insistence by George Papadopoulos that Alexander Downer and by extension Australia were actively involved in spying on the Trump campaign. Most Legacy media journalists refuse to investigate Papadopoulos’ claims.   That’s a red …

Is ABC Australia the Deep State’s Bitch?

It’s Your ABC Isn’t It? For most of my life, I have regarded the ABC as an Australian national treasure.  I bought the 19c a day campaign.  I bought the independent and fearless line that it’s high profile current affairs shows implied. I grew up watching 4 corners, listening to …

Pathetic, Conflicted and Corrupted: Welcome to Fake News

Regular readers will know that I have a deep abiding mistrust of “mainstream” media, it’s sources and the narratives it runs. It wasn’t always that way.  For much of my life I’ve had a deep respect for many news institutions.  That respect has gradually ebbed away as the MSM has …
