ABC poll shows approval rating of just 32 per cent

Staff writers

National broadcaster the ABC has shot itself in the foot yet again when head of news and current affairs Gaven Morris claimed 70 per cent of the population liked the ABC.

A poll published by the Institute for Public affairs revealed Auntie’s popularity rate was just 32 per cent among its home-grown audience.  Thirty-eight per cent of respondents had no view. A whopping 30 per cent said the organisation was out of touch with ordinary Australians.

General Manager of news and current affairs Gaven Morris likes to misrepresent a critical polling result. He would have learned how to do this after watching an ABC news segment.

When it comes to Trump, the ABC is blatantly way out on the left side with its comrades in CNN, Washington Post and The Guardian. Every news clip the ABC runs about Trump is negative. Conversely any news about the Democrats or presidential hopefuls Creepy Joe Biden or Marxist Bernie Sanders is positive.

Then there is the mass infection of ‘climate change’ which oozes out of the Sydney news HQ like sewerage.

Almost to every man and woman (woops they won’t like that) ABC commentators have been brainwashed by the climate cultists. It is embarrassing and no wonder most viewers switch off when faced with a sonic barrage of climate disinformation.

Liberals like Tony Abbott had the audacity to suggest the federal government stop funding the Bolsheviks at the Ultimo Centre in Sydney. He should have known better. He lost his seat at the last election.

Let that be a lesson to interfering politicians who want to upset the Marxist status quo. Notably Prime Minister Scott Morrison soon changed his tune after Abbott was tossed out.

Where to from here? The easy way out is to ignore but what about its 3.16 billion dollar budget?

International visitors would be horrified after viewing a typically jaundiced ABC news story about Donald Trump, whose approval rating at home is about to hit 50 per cent and growing.

ABC Chairman Ita Buttrose recently was reminded of her corporation’s sordid treatment of closely-aligned Trump. She said she noted the comments. Mmmmm what did she do with the notes?

Will the ABC change its stars and stripes discord when the Chinese or Indonesians start banging on the front door of parliament house?

Will NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons comment on this strange beam in the sky at a fire

These photos compliments of ‘State of the Nation’

Just like Operation Torch California, hard evidence of DEWs appearing throughout Australian bushfires (Video + Photo Proof)

NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said he was offended he wasn’t told the army was coming to help with logistics for the bush fires emergency. What a shame he didn’t get on his knees and thank them for coming or better still thank the Prime Minister for arranging the deployment.

Can the NSW Fire Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons explain what this beam of light might be which was photographed at a NSW fire by a volunteer?

 

Maybe the army reservists might have a better idea of fighting bush fires by dropping off some of military’s numerous bulldozers and graders to build proper firebreaks just as the rural brigades did in the past.

Defence Force Chief of the reservists Major General Justin Ellwood offered the Army’s vast array of heavy machinery to Victoria, NSW and South Australia. It is not known if the states accepted his offer.

The hundreds of thousands of people affected by these fires should be angry, bloody angry, and take their wrath out on the ALP/Liberal duopoly, the Greens the Wilderness Society and the Australian Conservation Foundation.

Political correctness and dangerous regulations have prevented volunteers from using proper fire controls

Don’t blame the volunteers who have been hamstrung in their valiant efforts by political correctness in fire management and control strategies which by the countless television footage seen across the world is just patently wrong and ineffective.

Dropping a few thousand litres of water onto flames from aircraft is ineffective and at $15,000 per plane, per hour, a waste of money. The only solution is to let the huge fire mass burn out on a wide break after back burning from the break.

Have the rural crews in place to extinguish spot fires with water, dozers and a helicopter.

Building a break naturally requires trees to be pushed over and even in the face of such massive destruction was not permitted by ALP/Liberal policies.

The RFS had sufficient time to build breaks in southern NSW and East Gippsland before the conflagration arrived. They could have started 6 months ago.

Have a Royal Commission? Another ALP sick joke from an Opposition leader so far out of his depth an oxygen tank can’t save him.

After the duplicitous Royal Commission into the financial industry few are interested in another show trial.

Drain the socialist, bureaucratic swamp, clean out the universities, get rid of UN Agenda 21/30 and a host of other, similar treaties various governments have signed us into, repeal the thousands of dangerous environmental regulations imposed by states and the Commonwealth and start again after input from rural farm land managers and Forestry Departments.

Can we get Donald Trump here on a three month contract?

 

Unprecedented attacks on Trump backfiring badly; ABC terrified Trump will be re-elected

Anti-Trump hysteria by Democrats resembles the Greens climate change madness in Australia

by James D. Veltmeyer, MD

The ongoing attacks by the political establishment on President Donald
Trump –which began even before he was elected – are without parallel
in history. The savagery, frenzy, and outright hysteria displayed by
the President’s enemies within the Democrat Party, the media, and the
various power centers of the globalist elites have no prior precedent.

Anti-Trump hysteria is backfiring badly. Polls yesterday had Trump leading every (mad) Democrat Presidential candidate by a mile.

This President has been spied on, lied about, made the subject of
phony foreign dossiers, insulted, ridiculed, scorned, mocked and
threatened. We have witnessed Hollywood celebrities advocate for
blowing up the White House, demand the President be beaten, jailed or
even assassinated, and his children tortured and sexually abused. We have seen politicians in Washington try to convict the President of
non-existent crimes, investigate him and his family members for
everything from tax returns to guests at his hotels, project on to him
crimes that they themselves have committed, and seed his
Administration with leakers and double-agents.

No other President in American history has been treated in such a
shameful manner. Not Lincoln. Not FDR. Not Nixon. Not Reagan.
What is it about this President that has roused such demons in his
political foes?  What is it about this President that drives his
opponents to the brink of insanity? What is it about this President
that so terrifies and terrorizes the Pelosis, Schiffs, Schumers and
the George Soroses?

Soros funding the Democrats/New World Order campaign to get rid of Trump

Is it simply that he is not part of the club, a brash outsider with a
different style? Is it merely because he’s outspoken and tramples on
political correctness? Is it because he’s sometimes unpresidential in
his demeanor (at least in their minds)?

Not at all. After all, aren’t these the same folks who loved Bill
Clinton whose extracurricular activities involved cigars and staining
blue dresses in the Oval Office?

Of course, Clinton was beloved by the globalist elites who pull the
strings on world governments. He gave them NAFTA, after all. He gave
them the WTO. He made tens of billions of dollars for them and their
stockholders through these unfair trade deals that cost America five
million manufacturing jobs and closed 70,000 factories. He also gave
the military-industrial complex plenty of profit-making military
interventions, from Haiti to Bosnia to Serbia and Iraq. Bill Clinton,
for all his corruption, delivered the goods for the New World Order.

Donald Trump, of course, never played ball with these globalists. He
was elected explicitly on an anti-globalist platform that put America
first. From day one, he started to implement that America-first
agenda, earning him the undying enmity of all those whose profits are
secured by selling out American workers, American jobs, and America’s
national sovereignty.

President Trump pulled us out of the TPP.  Billions in lost profits
for the globalists.

President Trump pulled us out of the job-destroying Paris Climate
Accords. Billions in lost profits for foreign nations like Communist
China, at our expense. Read NASA’s Report.

President Trump began the process of securing the U.S. border.
Billions in lost cheap illegal immigrant labor for the Business
Roundtable.

President Trump imposed tariffs on China, becoming the first President
ever to address Beijing’s annual $500 billion rape of our economy.
Billions in lost profits for corporations who ship our jobs to one of
the worst tyrannies on the planet.

President Trump renegotiated NAFTA. Again, billions in lost profits
for the cheap labor crowd.

President Trump launched the process of extricating the U.S. from
endless foreign wars and avoiding new wars with nations like Iran and
North Korea. Billions –perhaps trillions – in lost profits for the
globalist war machine.

Is the picture becoming a little clearer? In each instance, the
President’s policies have represented a dramatic upending of the
globalist agenda of both parties, the Carter-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama
agendas of continuous war and the continuous looting of America’s
wealth and hollowing out of the American middle class. With both
parties and their representatives in Congress beholden to campaign
donors whose profits are threatened by Trump’s America-first
initiatives, is it no wonder that both Democrats and Never-Trump
Republicans,  all Globalist-Socialist, are determined to bring this
President down? Most of the mass media is controlled by these same
global corporations. After all, doesn’t Amazon’s Jeff Bezos—the
richest man in the world – own the  Washington Post?

As was said in Watergate,(pedogate) just follow the money.  And—while you’re following the money—see if it leads to a $500 million left-wing slush
fund run by a   shadowy Soros and Clinton -linked group called
Arabella Advisors which is funding the anti-Trump political agenda
through dozens of high-sounding front groups

Folks, the New World Order gang is in full retreat all over the globe.
From Brexit in the UK to the populist governments of Hungary and
Poland to the Yellow Vest movement in France and Salvini in Italy, the
middle and working classes are demanding the overthrow of their
nation-destroying overlords. The overlords who have flooded their
countries with unassimilable immigrants from North Africa and
surrendered their sovereignty to the European Union and its
unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels. They have lived the unfulfilled
promises of the globalists, that giving up national sovereignty and
relocating jobs abroad would usher in a new era of peace and
prosperity. The exact opposite has happened. The globalist vision has
resulted in $7 trillion of pointless wars in the Middle East, an
immigration crisis, the loss of jobs, and declining standards of
living In the United States, Donald J. Trump has emerged as the New World

Order’s most tenacious and determined foe as   he fights the good
fight for the American people, our constitutional rights and liberties
and the sovereignty of our nation    He is an existential threat to
the New World Order. Unlike other Republican presidents of the
recent past, he can’t be bought and has no price. Unlike them, he
doesn’t give in and he doesn’t give up.

Go ahead, globalists. Try your impeachment games. Try your Senate
trials. It won’t work In fact, it will backfire on all of you as –
after three years of trying to prevent the Electoral College from
voting for Trump, stopping the inauguration, unleashing Jim Comey and
the FBI, CIA spying, Robert Mueller and his phony Russiagate probe,
tax returns, emoluments, Kavanaugh, and all the rest—the patience
of the American public is wearing thin. We aren’t as stupid as you
think.

Something you will recognize clearly come November 3, 2020.

 

 

 

Australian bush fires might have the same ignition source as California fires

How do 50 or more bushfires start almost simultaneously across NSW or Queensland? There have been no reports of lightning storms to speak of and just a handful of kids charged for allegedly starting fires near Brisbane. Power lines have not been blamed, so how do so many fires start in such a short time?
What is the end play? Authorities, some fire fighters, naturally the media in particular the jaundiced ABC blame ‘climate change.’ Well here is the evidence that something or someone is frequently changing the weather, causing unnatural fires and blaming it on climate change. Unnatural dry weather in the eastern states is driving the climate change hysteria. What has caused years of prolonged drought?

Who is the real enemy of mankind?

Letter to the Editor

An excellent well detailed documentary with link below, exposes the perpetrators & who our real enemies are, right up to the snakes head. The SATANIC Rothschild.

We are today living in the world of the victors of that war and without an objective, rational and balanced view of our history, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes. After World War Two, the victors of the war not only went on to write our history books, infiltrate our media and public education but even going so far as to criminalize the mere questioning of the official story’s orthodoxy. The truth is, that our world today can only be understood through a correct understanding of World War II, the architects of it and the conflicts between Globalism and Nationalism. Between the old and new world order. The Traditional and the “Progressive”.

Day in and day out, has the post-war propaganda been pounded into the minds of three subsequent generations. Every medium of mass indoctrination has been harnessed to the task of training the obedient masses as to what the proper and “acceptable” view of this event should be. Academia, news media, public education, book publishing, TV documentaries, Hollywood films and politicians of every stripe all sing the same song.

For very good reasons, most people don’t trust the mainstream media anymore. You have already heard the official history millions of times.

This new epic documentary gives an overview of how Europe has been shaped in modern history. In it, you will find the secret history, where you will find the real causes of the events. Watch this series and uncover the real root causes of World War II. It will take you on an epic timeline that will transport you back in time and lead you on the journey through the Bolshevik Revolution, the communist attempts to take over Germany; hyperinflation during the Weimar Republic, widespread unemployment and misery, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, World War I & II – all the way to the modern world. It presents the true historical events that lead to this world catastrophe known as the second world war, as well as the aftermath.

Green/ALP environmental policies killing eastern Australia

If you want to live among the trees then expect the worst

by Robert J Lee in Sydney

A succession of Green/ALP state governments in Queensland, NSW and Victoria has ensured the worst bush fires ever seen since the first settlement in 1788.

Blackfellas would not have allowed such high concentrations of forest detritus or would they have allowed open plains and sparsely timbered country to carry excess bodies of natural grasses.

Smart blackfellas burnt grasslands and forest whenever it would carry a fire.

If they didn’t they would have starved. Quite simple.

Forest burning on mid-coast of NSW due to Greens/ALP/LNP environmental policies of no machinery, no  firebreaks or no back burning. Pics -ABC

But the generational, socialist UN policies driving the major parties have allowed our once pristine rural land to become a tinder box due to lack of fuel reduction burning over decades.

In NSW more than 150 homes have been razed, nearly 900,000 hectares (2,250 million acres) have been devastated by wildfire and three people burnt to death because of Greens/ALP/LNP environmental nonsense.

Landowners under NSW and Queensland policies will end up in jail if they cut down a tree. There is no more problem with this stupidity now – there are no trees left.

NSW Liberal Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared a state of emergency, describing the crisis as “some of the most devastating bushfires we have ever seen”.

The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) confirmed the extent of the damage to date, ahead of a warning about “catastrophic” conditions facing Greater Sydney and the Greater Hunter areas on Tuesday.

Water bombing catastrophic fires ineffective and a waste of money

And the nonsense still continues in the face of a declared fire emergency; no graders or bulldozers to build fire breaks can be seen at most of these fires. Queensland is no different.

Instead the urban methods of water-bombing with aircraft is next to useless, but puts a lot of money into a few hands.

The NSW fire bill is expected to exceed $1 billion. Insurance companies are hiding under rocks. Great management by state governments!

Then came the UN Agenda 21 (which has morphed into Agenda 30) in 1992 which then Queensland ALP Attorney General, Rod Welford, an avowed socialist among other things, couldn’t wait to sign. On whose authority did he sign such a terrible agreement?

The we have the outgoing Queensland ALP Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk  and Deputy Premier Comrade Jackie Trad promising to sack 11,000 rural fire service volunteers if they don’t apply for a working with children blue card or telephone some ‘official’ from a raging fire ground for permission if they want to back burn.

Today Comrade Premier Palaszczuk issued a state of emergency forbidding any open fires, welding, grinding or acetylene cutting, warning landowners they will commandeer whatever equipment or water needed to fight a fire.

Maybe the desk-jockey morons of the ALP government have discovered they will need machinery to build fire breaks?

Far too little far too late. Get rid of these Trotskyites and replace them with One Nation, Katter and other independents at the next election.

Then form a new state of North Queensland and we can leave the Labor communists and their supporters to wallow in the denuded dustbowl of South East Queensland which no dams and no hazard reduction burning policies has created.

Now we now how little monster Greta was created

Australian and US universities the new Commissariat…ideological policing by academia

by Alex Bruce

Dr. Michael Rectenwald was a professor at New York University and he jokingly describes himself as having been a lifelong Communist, “to the Left of the Bolsheviks” before he ran afoul of his wokester peers in academe.

His story is very similar to my own, in that he was basically a professor of cultural criticism, which was my major. The analyses consisted largely of Marxist Deconstructivism. He could have been my professor. Like me, he was a Leftist until very recently, when his slight deviation from the party line revealed the shocking, totalitarian impulses hiding behind a thin veneer of egalitarian rhetoric.

Like me, he’s now swinging from the rafters and shouting from the rooftops about the pox of Leftism and his Twitter posts look exactly like mine!

His bestselling book, ‘The Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom’ is about how Big Tech, influenced by Marxist and Postmodernist thought increasingly enables a toxic mix of censorship, surveillance, social engineering and ‘social justice’ policies that, in effect create a digital equivalent of the Soviet gulag.

It is this climate that enabled the unprecedented collaboration between Big Tech, with the mass media and the intelligence agencies to saturate the infosphere with their chosen narrative and to ban all others.

Greta Thunberg is a product of the cultural revolution and ideological conformity

As he says here, “We have a soft Cultural Revolution going on in the United States and the West, in general. We need people to stand up to this Cultural Revolution and just speak back to these new Red Guards.

“We’re being surveilled upon, our opinions are being monitored and dissidents are being disappeared, just as they were during the Soviet Union. They’re being digitally erased or deleted…”

He joins The Epoch Times’ Jan Jekielek for what I feel may be the most important interview that I have covered in 9 years of publishing FKTV. I’ve transcribed some of the highlights below.

***

Dr. Michael Rectenwald: There’s this exclusive domination [on college campuses] of a particular ideological Leftism which is called “Social Justice”. It’s a misnomer, if you ask me but it’s a very rigid creed of identity politics and a kind of adherence to sort of inverse hierarchy, in order to debunk the so-called “oppressors” from the top and put them on the bottom. It is instituted at NYU and universities all across the country; 230 universities at least have instituted what they call “bias reporting” hotlines, in which students are encouraged to report the bias infractions of their professors or fellow students.

So – very much like Communist Soviet Union and Communist China – this kind of ideological policing that was going and that I found very disturbing and everybody was going along for the ride. The no-platforming of speakers, the way that the Left shut down any ideological diversity from appearing on campus at all; burning campuses down, like in Berkeley, when speakers were invited that they didn’t approve of.

Then, of course other things like trigger warnings on syllabi…it’s a slippery slope toward ideological conformity…For example, ‘Dante’s Inferno’ has been stricken from curricula because it has a depiction of Muhammad in one of the circles of Hell. This is one of the greatest books and one of the greatest poems in the Western canon and it’s a shame that the Western canon is being eradicated. Also, for example at the University of Pennsylvania, they took down from the [web] portal the picture of Shakespeare, because he’s a white male… a university in London struck all white philosophers from the philosophy curriculum…

I thought it was censorship. I thought it was ideological conformity being forced on professors and students, I thought it was a…narrowbanding of our intellectual capacities and as kind of an indoctrination of students, rather than teaching; rather than exposing students to diverse perspectives it was…funneling them into a particular perspective and that really disturbed me.

Jan Jekielek: Fascinating. How did the faculty respond to your complaints?

Dr. Michael Rectenwald: Well, I did an interview for a reporter for the Washington Square News, which is the student newspaper at NYU. Within two days of this interview appearing in their online and print edition, I was denounced by a committee calling themselves the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Group”, which I’ve since dubbed the “Conformity, Inequity and Exclusion Group” because they demand ideological conformity. They attempt to exclude anyone who doesn’t conform and you’re certainly not considered a peer, if you have views that differ from theirs and then I was put on an immediate paid leave of absence, as well.

So I was basically banished from the University for a semester and punished with this ideological condemnation by an official committee of the university.

Jan Jekielek: So you were basically an early recipient of Cancel Culture.

Dr. Michael Rectenwald: Very much so. Before Cancel Culture existed, I was a victim of Cancel Culture…

The things I want to make clear is that these the Big Digital is not some politically neutral set of principles or companies Big Digital consists of a bunch of left-leaning authoritarians and they’re doing so they have the same ideological character in a softer sense of course as the CCP.

Jan Jekielek: OK, so that that’s a big thing to say. You’re gonna you’re gonna have to offer some pretty solid evidence here.

Dr. Michael Rectenwald: There’s a ton of evidence that shows that the Google stacks their search results in a Left-leaning way. All this has been shown by Dr. Robert Epstein and it was exposed by Project Veritas. Google has a worldview that’s reflected both in their algorithms; their outward-facing algorithms and their internal policies. Their internal policies show that they favor almost all kinds of Leftists views about identity. They’re very, very strong in encouraging transgenderism, they’re very strong in discouraging anything like traditional ideas about gender, they also have extremely Left-leaning views about the political economy. They have monopolistic ambitions, I think and they also have state functions. They are – first of all Google was started by funding from the CIA – and that’s not to prove that they have a state function but they also keep they continue to cooperate with the state… Read the rest of this entry

US gun massacres sponsored by Deep State and fake news

Witnesses in the El Paso shooting reported seeing 3 or 4 masked shooters wearing all-black and one reported killed by police

It has many similarities to alleged New Zealand shooting

El Paso Shooter’s Father Was a Therapist Tied to John of God

by Alexandra Bruce

The two mass-shooters from this past weekend are being grossly misrepresented by the Fake News to push an anti-Trump agenda, in tones that can only be described as incitement to civil war. The press has lied to us so much over the past few years that there is no reason to believe anything they’re reporting about these mass-shooting events, especially with so many details coming out that contradict the scripted narrative that “white supremacy” is the greatest threat to the US.

Dozens of Antifa members following and followed by 24-year-old Ohio shooter, Connor Betts are mass-deleting their social media accounts as I write this but I got a look at some before Betts’ Twitter account was taken down. Betts clearly expressed that he was a Satanist who hated Trump, hated ICE, supported (Marxist) Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and he specified his gender pronouns as “he/him”. Last June, he tweeted, “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding”. Nowhere to be seen was anything about white supremacy. One of his shooting victims was his own sister. How Betts is being spun as a “white supremacist” and being blamed on Trump by the Democrats and the Fake News truly beggars belief.

Witnesses in the El Paso shooting reported seeing 3 or 4 masked shooters wearing all-black. Besides the one suspect apprehended, a second suspect was reported killed by the police to the DC Examiner’s Anna Giaritelli. Despite this, the Fake News quickly propagated a classic Lone Nut narrative about 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, while officials refuse to release any of the numerous security camera videos.

As seen in this video, Crusius’ Instagram account reveals him to be a Far-Left Progressive who is “Pro-LGBTQ+, Pro-immigrants, Universal healthcare for all, Free college, Agnostic, and
🚫🚫RACISTS!🚫🚫”

The “manifesto” published to 8Chan and attributed to Crusius has NOT been linked to any online account belonging to him and the authorities have wavered as to its authenticity. But before any confirmation was made, the Fake News reported that the manifesto and its anti-immigrant, anti-race-mixing views were his, even though manifesto’s ideology is 180º opposed to that on Crusius’ Instagram account. The MyLife account of his mother, Lori Lynn Crusius is still up and she self-reports to be Hispanic-American.

The creator of this video, my new favorite YouTube channel, Where We Go 1 We Go All (WWG1WGA), also shows us video of Crusius’ father, Bryan Crusius, a recovering addict and a psychologist who specializes in child psychology.

WWG1WGA gets into many other interesting details about these mass shootings and Bill Cooper’s 1991 prediction that these events would be deliberately staged in order to make the public beg to repeal the Second Amendment.

 

Aborigines are not the only indigenous Australians

Letter to the Editor

My wife and I were both born in Australia, as were two children and four grandchildren. Our parents were born in Australia as were all of their parents. And some ancestors go back much further in this land.


I feel rage every time I have to sit through another patronising “welcome to country” charade, designed to make me feel an intruder in my own land. Indigenous history on this continent is the same as our family story – it just goes back a bit further.

The first aboriginals probably walked here over a land bridge and Europeans came later in sailing clippers. All caused displacement of prior inhabitants. They brought dingos which are now “protected” – we brought cattle, sheep, horses and ploughs which are increasingly condemned. They mined ochre, quartzite and basalt, which are now heritage sites – but our coal mines are widely condemned. They brought spears and boomerangs – we brought guns and swords.


Racial referenda, indigenous “Welcomes”, talk of Treaties and special land rights for some Australians just create and maintain division. How long before we are one people with the same rights and responsibilities?


Two centuries is surely time enough?

That’s correct Viv, but wait until you have to sit through a phony ‘smoking ceremony.’ Our northern blackfellas shudder every time they see one.

Australian Federal Police threaten freedom of the press

from Kevin Moore

After Assange’s Espionage Act Indictment, Police Move Against More Journalists for Publishing Classified Material

Less than two months after the arrest of journalist Julian Assange, and two weeks after his indictment under the Espionage Act, emboldened governments have sent the police after journalists who’ve challenged the state. Joe Lauria reports:

https://consortiumnews.com/2019/06/05/after-assanges-espionage-act-indictment-police-move-against-more-journalists-for-publishing-classified-material/

So is the Julian Assange case different? –

ABC vows to protect sources after AFP raid

The national broadcaster says a raid on its Sydney offices over a 2017 story that Australian defence personnel may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan “raises concerns over freedom of the press”.
The ABC vowed to protect its sources even as the federal police raid was continuing at the broadcaster’s offices in Ultimo on Wednesday.
A warrant indicates digital forensic officers will target documents and computers linked to reporters Dan Oakes and Sam Clark as well as news director Gaven Morris, the ABC reports.
The news organisation says the raid is in relation to a July 2017 story that revealed “hundreds of pages of secret Defence Force documents leaked to the ABC give an unprecedented insight into the clandestine operations of Australia’s elite special forces in Afghanistan including incidents of troops killing unarmed men and children”…………………. The West Australian

Julian Assange arrested by British police

Assange illness won’t stop extradition by US

Julian Assange has been arrested and is now locked away in British custody. The U.S. government wants to extradite him, regardless of the official version, for the crime of revealing our government’s crimes. Nearly every government on our third rock from the sun despises the man for bringing transparency to the process of ruling the unwashed masses.
It is politically inconvenient at this time for the screaming corporate news to remind our entire citizenry what exactly WikiLeaks has done for us. So you won’t see the following list of WikiLeaks’ accomplishments anywhere on your corporate airwaves—in the same way the mainstream media did not begin every report about Chelsea Manning’s trial with a rundown of the war crimes she helped reveal.
And Chelsea Manning’s most famous leak is arguably also WikiLeaks’ most famous leak, so it’ll top this list:…………………….

https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/it-isnt-just-us-government-assange-has-lot-enemies/

“……………The raid against Smethurst, however, raises the prospect of prosecutions of journalists and media organisations for publishing leaked material, in a direct attack on freedom of the press.

This was signalled by the phrasing of the warrant, which reportedly stated that the raid was partly in relation to the “alleged publishing of information classified as an official secret, which is an extremely serious matter that has the potential to undermine Australia’s national security.”

The phrasing corresponds to Espionage and Foreign Interference legislation passed last year by the Coalition, with the full support of Labor. The new laws make it a criminal offense to “deal with” information that “harms” “national security.” “Deal with” is defined to cover a long list of activities: “collect,” “possess,” “make a record of,” “copy,” “alter,” “conceal,” “communicate,” “publish” and “make available.”

Journalists have a limited defence, if they “reasonably believe” the information they published was in the public interest. However, this proviso is entirely undefined and subject to interpretation, meaning that journalists and media organisations could still face prosecution.

The AFP raids are part of a deepening assault on the democratic rights of the population, which is aimed at suppressing growing opposition to militarism, war, social inequality and the escalating expansion of police powers. In both cases, journalists who have revealed evidence of crimes by the government and military are raided and implicitly threatened with criminal prosecution.

This is part of a broader drive by governments around the world to abolish freedom of the press and other fundamental civil liberties. The sharpest expression is the attempt by the US administration of President Donald Trump to prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for his role in exposing US war crimes and diplomatic intrigues.

America’s next civil war could start in Oregon very soon: can Trump hold the fort?

from Natural News

“America just one trigger event away from all-out open warfare on the streets”

This story is getting very little coverage in the legacy media for obvious reasons. Just like California, Oregon has gone full authoritarian in trying to force its fake science “climate change” agenda on everyone. Over the last few days, Oregon’s Gov. Kate Brown has ordered the gunpoint rounding up of Republican lawmakers by police in order to force a vote on a climate change “cap and trade” scheme (HB 2020) that only enriches corrupt Democrat insiders.

Can Trump hold the fort? His demise by illegal alien voting fraud will have serious implications for Australia

As BigLeaguePolitics.com reports, the Oregon Three Percenters appear to be getting involved to protect the citizens of Oregon from the authoritarian tyranny of the corrupt Democrats(Australian equivalent is the ALP):

The Oregon Three Percenters, who participated in the armed takeover of a wildlife refuge in 2016, was one of many groups to support the Republican legislators’ defiance. Apparently this, along with support for the legislators by other right-wing groups, was unsettling to law enforcement.
