Tim Pool has an excellent podcast on YouTube and he’s found a new niche as a Left-of-Center journalist who’s appalled at the unhinged radicalization of the Left in the US.
Lately, he’s been reporting on how journalism has been invaded and killed by what he calls “fringe activists” and that the data proves it. He says, “So long as actual news organizations provide safe harbor to these people journalism will remain dead.”
The data he refers to comes from fellow journalist, Zach Goldberg, who ran several “woke” keywords and phrases through a LexisNexis search, yielding graphs showing the frequency of these words’ appearance in mass media articles between 1990 and today.
We see the same radical hockey stick pattern starting in 2011 and going into overdrive in 2016 for all of the following: 1. “Diversity and Inclusion”, 2. “Whiteness”, 3. “Critical Race Theory”, 4. “Unconscious Bias”, 5. “White Privilege”, 6. “Systemic Racism”, 7. “Diversity Training”, 8. “Privilege”, 9. “Discrimination”, 10. “Social Justice”, 11. “Police Brutality”. 12. “Marginalized”, 13. “People of Color”, 14. “Racism”, 15. “White Supremacy”, 16. “Intersectionality”, 17. “Implicit Bias”, 18. “Political Correctness”, 19. “Diversity”.
Here, Pool dissects the tactics of these Alinskyite mercenaries, who are not content that 95% of the media in the US is Leftist, they need it to be 100% and they aggressively seek to de-platform anyone to the Right of Xi Jinping. This is what Vox journalist, Carlos Maza achieved last week with the de-platforming of thousands of YouTube accounts. Maza, who formerly worked at the George Soros-funded activist group, Media Matters, is a classic example of an activist posing as a journalist.

The ‘climate’ hoax
Environmental terrorist, Greenpeace on its Facebook site warns it will start a renewed environmental terrorism campaign in earnest following a predictable defeat for Bill Shorten and the Labor Party at the May 18 election. Time now to ramp up background information about the environmental octopus gripping the Greens and their roots to Nazi Germany, where pagan environmentalism began.
From the Greenpeace official statement:
“This is not a post we thought we’d have to make.
We’re looking into the eyes of our friends, families and colleagues and seeing them all searching for answers, but only able to ask the same questions:
How? Why? Where do we go from here?
This result flies in the face of all Australians who’ve fought for our climate. For pristine oceans, for clean air, for the thousands of young Australians scared for what their future holds. We demanded they declare an emergency, and they shook a lump of coal in our faces.
So it’s right now, more than ever, that we want to tell you this:
This fight is not over, and none of us are going anywhere.
Tonight we learned something profound, something that changes the ballgame. Something that will require every one of us to stand up and take action in a way we’ve never before.
The system is broken. And as long our politics are shackled to the coal industry and vested interest, we’ll never fix it.
It’s time to change the game. It’s time to be disruptive. It’s time to take the power back.
If our government won’t declare a climate emergency, we’ll declare an uprising.
Last week Laura, one of the brave climbers who scaled the Sydney Harbour Bridge, said that that we can’t afford to rest on our laurels amidst this climate emergency. She put her body on the line and promised us that she’d never give up. And we shouldn’t either.
Now is not the time to leave. Now is the time to hold each other close, to pick each other up, and to stand up and fight.
If the climate-wreckers in the Coalition think we’re going to go away quietly, they’ve got another thing coming.
If Scott Morrison thinks he’s won the war on coal, he’s got another thing coming.
If anyone thinks the fight for our planet is over, they’ve got another thing coming.
We’ll be fighting back. Harder than we ever have before.
Now a new fight begins.”
From the School Strike4Climate website’:
1. Stop the Adani coal mine
2. No new coal, oil and gas projects
3. 100% renewable energy by 2030
Greenpeace linked to the ‘School Strike4Climate’ movement
According to the “School Strike 4 Climate Australia” website, their network is student-led, decentralised and grassroots. But it doesn’t take a researcher long to discover this network is controlled top down, and funded, by the City of London-centred financial oligarchy. Two mobile numbers are listed as contacts for media inquiries. Are they for school students—Year 12 student leaders perhaps? No! A quick internet search shows that they link to Charlie Wood and Alex Fuller.
Wood is Australian Campaigns Director of 350.org, an environmentalist activist organisation with a presence in 188 countries. It had a US$16.8 million total revenue in 2017, and public records show wealthy foundations such as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation have collectively funnelled in tens of millions of dollars to 350.org since its founding in 2007.
The CEO of 350.org in Australia, Blair Palese, was a board member of Greenpeace Australia Pacific. Greenpeace has collectively received billions of dollars from establishment-run foundations such as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Tides Foundation, and the Schmidt Family Foundation established by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. The late Lord Peter Melchett, heir to the Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) fortune, was executive director of Greenpeace UK.
Fuller is Communications Manager of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), which had a total income of more than $2.8 million in 2017 alone. Curiously, the AYCC Facebook page links to the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) and GetUp. Both have been establishment fronts from their inception.
The ACF was established by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in 1964; its patron was the Governor-General, and its Chairman of the Benefactors and National Sponsors Committee—i.e. chief fundraiser– Sir Maurice Mawby, managing director of Conzinc Riotinto Australia (CRA, later Rio Tinto). The two co-founders of GetUp, Harvard graduates Jeremy Heimans and David Madden, both worked for the Soros-funded MoveOn.org in the USA. Among GetUp’s founding board members were John Hewson, former Macquarie Bank executive director and Liberal Party leader; and Don Mercer, former ANZ Bank CEO.– from CEC
Bob Brown, Queensland Labor and the ABC want to save the planet with these cow fart bags.
Queensland has about 9 million cattle. Will Bob Brown, Bill Shorten and the Qld Deputy Premier Jackie Trad go west to fit the bags? Naturally the cattle producer would have to buy them first.
There could be a new rodeo event named ‘bag fitting.’
Who empties them when they are filled with gas? What happens when a cow walks under a prickly acacia tree and the bag gets punctured. Got any patches Jackie or do you take the cow to Beaurepaires?
A vote for the major partiers in the next state election will perpetuate this madness.
The ABC: it’s almost like incest
This is only at the Federal Level. If you add the State Personalities it is worse.
Smile this is what you are funding a little homework has come up with the following…
· Why does the Left media protect the left?
· Because the political commentators of the Left media are either intermingled or married to the left politicians.
· It’s a family thing and they protect their own:
· Greg Combet (Labor) partnered to Juanita Phillips (ABC).
· Gai Brodtmann (Labor) married to Chris Uhlmann (ABC)
· David Feeney (Labor) married to Liberty Sanger (guest commentator on ABC)
· Barry Cassidy (ABC) former speech writer for Bob Hawke (Labor) from 1986-1991
· Heather Ewart (ABC) married to Barry Cassidy (ABC) speech writer for Bob Hawke (Labor) from 1986-1991
· Maxine McKew (ABC) married to Bob Hogg (former ALP national secretary)
· Maxine McKew (ABC) became Labor politician replacing John Howard for one term only.
· Virginia Trioli (ABC) married to Russell Skelton (The Age)
· Mark Kenny (Fairfax) married to Virginia Haussegger (ABC)
· Christine Wallace (ABC & Fairfax) married to Michael Costello (former Chief of Staff to Labor’s Kim Beazley)
· Annabel Crabb (former Fairfax journalist now with the ABC)
· Tony Jones (ABC) married to Sarah Ferguson (ABC) Coincidentally Jones took over the Lateline role from Maxine McKew (from ABC presenter to Labor politician)
· David Penberthy (journalist) married to Kate Ellis (Labor)
· Paul Kelly (former Fairfax journalist) formerly married to Ros Kelly (Labor)
· Kerry O’Brien (ABC) former press secretary to Gough Whitlam.
· Mark Colvin (ABC) married to Michelle McKenzie (Leichhardt deputy-mayor and Greens Councillor)
· Denis Atkins (ABC Insiders regular) married to Melanie Christensen (ABC Canberra)
· Paul Barry (ABC) married to Lisa McGregor (ABC)
· The lamentable Mike Carlton (formerly Fairfax) partners Morag Ramsay (ABC)
· Andrew Fraser (Fairfax) and Catriona Jackson (formerly Fairfax and Laborpress secretary)
· And so the list goes on.
Labor, Fairfax and the ABC are joined at the hip. Much like the relationship between Labor and the unions.
They’re on the Aussie payroll.
Now you know why Bill Shorten wants to increase your taxes.
To fund the propaganda and jaundiced news.
How do we get rid of their false news about ‘climate change’ and politics?
The New Zealand and Australian Governments are in full crisis mode over the video games movie released onto the internet by intelligence agencies supposedly depicting a mass shooting in a mosque.
Any kid with half a brain would know immediately the rifles are air guns and the video which has terrified governments and their perpetrators is full of crisis actors who get shot by Tarrant’s air gun and naturally don’t bleed.
If Tarrant had a real weapon there would have been blood and guts all over him and spread across the floor and walls.
Firing a 5.56mm rifle with military grade ammo sends a 55 grain projectile at 3260 feet per second and has a muzzle energy 1294 lb-f. In other words if you get hit by the round at 10 to 40 feet distance you are dead and the impact leaves an awful entry wound easily seen at that range and a massive exit wound with blood and tissue everywhere.
Did any viewer see this occur in the video? Even the Port Arthur hoax was better than this, and that was in 1996.
Any person found transmitting or publishing this dodgy video can face up to 14 years in jail warns the NZ Government.
Take you pick on which one if either is Tarrant. In any case both are over age 40.
A photograph of the man charged in the Christchurch Magistrates Court taken in the court and without a blurred face shows a completely different person to the video still of the alleged shooter Brenton Tarrant sitting in a car.
The real identity of either man in these photographs is now in doubt. New Zealand Prime Minister and leader of the NZ Labour Party Jacinda Adern either is totally incompetent or has been involved in this shooting scam since the plot was hatched.
Who is the person in court and who is sitting in a car in the footage released at the time of the shootings?
Irrespective of the identity of the two different men in the photos, nothing alters the amateurish video mentioned above. A US reader sent this information and we leave it to readers to decide:
LMAO FFS! The face photoshopped onto Brenton’s body is actually SAM HYDE!! a famous guy for memes created about him. /pol/ 4chan likes to blame him for every shooting that happens its part of the meme. There is no False Flag.

Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is having herself on, at the behest of the rabid, green Deputy Premier Jackie Trad thinking she can curb the growing influence of Katters Australian Party across the north by sacking their government employed staff.
One of the most mendacious media campaigns in recent years, naturally spearheaded by the left wing of the ABC, against Senator Fraser Anning and his now famous immigration speech has spectacularly backfired.
While it is a normal occurrence, Bob Katter has been mobbed by the old and young alike. It was evident at weekend functions across Shane Knuth’s state electorate of Hill and in Katters federal electorate of Kennedy, ordinary people, the quiet majority have emerged from their slumber.
Grandmothers, grandfathers, mothers, fathers and kids were lining up for photos with Katter like never before. Similarly in yet another failed attempt by the rather obnoxious socialist hosting the ABC’s Q&A, Tony Jones, Bob Katter was unable to leave the Mackay premises of the Q&A show after the program. Again he was mobbed by audience members who wanted to thank him for Anning’s speech and his contribution to the immigration debate.
As he explained to many, it was not only Anning’s call for a referendum on immigration, it was the odious reaction of the ALP/LNP duopoly which sparked life into a sleeping giant.
It is evident the Labor Party is running scared of KAP. On Sunday, in front of the ALP rent-a-crowd at a state conference, Palaszczuk promised to remove five of the KAP parliamentary staff because Robbie Katter refused to denounce Anning’s call for an immigration referendum.
It is plain to see the ALP is heavily reliant on the vote of Muslim immigrants.
In effect the not-so-smart Premier is purposely hindering the duties of an elected member which attracts three years goal under the Crimes Act 1995.
The ALP hierarchy was shocked when 75 per cent of respondents, ironically to an ABC poll said Fraser Anning should not apologise for his comments about Muslim immigration.
This sent the ALP into a frenzy and their knee-jerk reaction was to penalise KAP.
Now, most voters are not silly and older Brisbaneites should remember Annastacia’s father Henry, who was the member for the state seat of Inala for years. He even made it to Primary Industries Minister but it was no secret poor Henry was not the sharpest tack in the box.
Some scientists believe intelligence is hereditary and if so Annastacia missed the boat.
The bite she hasn’t seem coming will be from her ambitious deputy, Trad, who has made it known on several occasions, she wants the top job.
When the house comes tumbling down, Comrade Trad will pounce.
The ABC, setting the Marxist agenda for aspiring Communist politicians from all sides, targeted a completely innocuous phrase in Annings hallmark speech, trying to foment hate among middle eastern Muslims in Australia.
Fraser said in his revered speech: “We should go back to that and ban ALL immigrants receiving welfare for the first five years after they arrive.
“The final solution to the immigration problem is of course a popular vote.”
It is this phrase ‘,…the final solution…’ which the perfidious ABC, ALP and LNP have taken completely out of context, likening it to Hitler’s so-called holocaust.
This nation building speech is so monumental and significant, it will endure for a generation among parents, children, clergy, small businessmen, teachers of truth and hopefully genuine parliamentary representatives.
It should be mandatory reading in citizenship classes in every public and private school.
Like the ALP, this lying campaign has come back to bite the ABC. Fewer and fewer viewers among a dwindling audience now disregard the ABC as the leading source of news. Gone is the mantle of respectability, neutrality and accuracy, if these attributes have existed over the past 20 years.
It seems the ABC, Guardian and Fairfax have modelled their news gathering and dissemination on that of US fake news channel CNN.
If we had a leader unafraid of Murdoch, Fairfax and the ABC and astute as Donald Trump these insidious news agencies would be shut down, their monopolies broken up and smaller, reliable news sources would fall into place.
Suggestions in the past by former Prime Minister Tony Abbott to defund the ABC and remove its egregious snout from the public trough, were the predisposing cause of his downfall.
Today KAP sought legal advice and if successful Trad will be top dog sooner rather than later.
Former West Australian One Nation Senator Rodney Culleton will appear on the ABC 7.30 Report Monday Night EST
7.30 pm June 4, 2018.
He will tell all about the One Nation imbroglio, the Royal Commission into banks which he and Bob Katter initiated and how the Commonwealth Constitution has been subverted.

War has always been about theft of kind or another. Traditionally, it’s meant conquering and usurping territory and resources. In modern times, it has also come to mean the business of war; where military contractors and government entities take enormous allocations from annual defense budgets. The targets today are not just the traditional state enemies but also include the Taxpayer, the object of total surveillance and media mind control, who must not rock the boat over being divested of hundreds of billions of dollars every year.
As everybody knows, the US spends more than China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, France, the UK, Japan and Germany combined, with an annual budget of $611 billion versus the others’ combined total of $595 billion in 2016. This does not include the US’ Black Budget, which according to the Snowden leaks totaled $52 billion in 2012.
Woe betide anybody who threatens this massive racket, whose profits are only surpassed (more than doubled, in fact) by the financial industry.
For over two centuries, Russia has been branded the enemy of the West. This Boogey Man status remains, even though Russia’s population growth peaked in 1991 and its economy is ranked #12, after Brazil, Canada and South Korea. Russia does not represent anything like the geopolitical threat posed by China, by unfathomable orders of magnitude. The Russkie Boogey Man exists solely for the business purposes of the Military-Industrial Complex.
“The Great Game” was a political and diplomatic confrontation that existed for most of the nineteenth century between the British Empire and the Russian Empire over control of Central Asia and India. It continues to this day, with the ongoing US invasion Afghanistan (the longest war in US history) and in the abiding Russophobia propounded by the DC Establishment, with its accusations of “Russian hacking” and “Russian collusion” in the 2016 Presidential Election.
“The Great Game” was reignited in the UK front over the past week, with the rapidly escalating Skirpal poisoning case, which has now seen 23 Russian diplomats expelled from Britain and Russia’s expulsion in kind of 23 UK diplomats and with the UK and the now US voicing concerns about “Russian cyber reprisals” against its financial and infrastructure targets.
Kim Dotcom, the Finnish-German-Kiwi Internet impresario gets this. It’s not every day that we get to see him speak. He joined Black Pilled 10 hours ago to drop some truth:
“The Deep State is a business. It’s a business operation, okay? The Russia Department of the Deep State is a significant percentage of their business. Imagine if, all of a sudden, relations with Russia were friendly and we were at peace and we were cooperating and everything was happy? That means that this large department has to shut down or has to significantly be reduced in its numbers, which ultimately means a significant budget cut for the Deep State and obviously, they don’t want this.
“It was not Russia that hacked the DNC. It was their very own conduct, that an individual was so unhappy with it, thought it was so unfair and dishonest and unethical that that person decided, ‘I want the truth to be known.’ This is how we get the truth. It’s people on the inside, like Snowden seeing what’s happening, how our rights are being undermined, how the processes are being perverted to achieve an outcome that is predetermined, that some powerful people have made in a boardroom and are now pushing down our throats…
“It is sad that Hillary Clinton is still seen by quite a large number of people in the US as a clean operator. She is a complete fraud, a criminal scum, and I’m really happy, even though it’s really a tiny, tiny, tiny role that I played but I’m really happy that I was a part of stopping her from becoming President.”

The ABC has been caught out acting as an agent of government perpetuating the lies and terrible media misinformation that surrounds the Port Arthur massacre where 35 people allegedly were killed by a lone shooter, Martin Bryant.
For 22 years the ABC and other mainstream media have been paramount in manipulating the true story of Port Arthur, how a drill turned into a massacre which has been covered up at the highest levels of government.
This week the Tasmania Liberal Party Government, in election mode, announced it will free up the stringent provisions of the state’s firearms laws enacted by all states after the Port Arthur event in 1996.
The Liberals have proposed changes to gun laws which would give farm workers and sporting shooters greater access to category C weapons, including pump-action shotguns, self-loading rifles and silencers.
The usual cries of horror by the media and now a survivor of the shooting, are screaming foul that the laws should not be tampered with and left alone.
The excerpt below from an ABC news transcript released on March 2, 2018, clearly shows how a manipulative journalist, Fiona Blackwood, has inferred Port Arthur victim Peter Croswell was shot by Martin Bryant.
“…survivor Peter Crosswell said he would be devastated if Tasmania’s gun laws were weakened in any way.
Mr Crosswell was shot by Martin Bryant while lying on the ground trying to protect two women.
He was one of the few people to survive the shooting massacre inside the Broad Arrow Cafe at the convict-era tourism site at Port Arthur in 1996, later being awarded a bravery medal for his actions.
“After Port Arthur, there was a lot of work put in by a lot of people, a lot of people were in a great deal of pain then, to get these gun laws in place,” Mr Croswell said….”
Nowhere in the ABC article was Mr Croswell directly quoted as saying Martin Bryant shot him.
Thanks to expatriate Australian, now Austrian-based investigative journalist and author Keith Noble, his hallmark work MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014) reveals a great deal about the massacre the Federal Government would not like published in the news media.
Indeed on April 28,1996, the same day he was shot Mr Croswell was shown a number of photos including one of Martin Bryant and in his statement told police:
WITNESS: CROSSWELL, Peter David
DATE: 28 April 1996 (same day as incident)
CONCERNS: “At this point a male person stood up. He yelled out something like ‘No No Not Here.’ I then saw the gunman shoot this guy in the head.” &
“I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” &“I then saw a yellow car of some description leave the car park.”
WITNESS: CROSSWELL, Peter David
DATE: 1 July 1996 (63 days after incident)
CONCERNS: “…long shoulder length blonde hair.” &
“I do however remember that he was carrying a long bag when he came into the restaurant. The bag appeared to be heavy.” &
“I have been shown a photograph identification board by Detective GHEDINI which consisted of thirty (30) photo graphs of male persons. I am unable to identify any of these males as being responsible for the shootings in side the Broad Arrow Café.”
A footnote by author Keith Noble identifies the man who stood up in the Broad Arrow café when the shooting started:
“This witness(Peter Crosswell) was wounded inside the café. To his credit and that of witnesses Pamelia (sic) Law and Thelma Walker who were with Crosswell, none of them identified Martin Bryant as the gunman. It would have been easy for them to say it was Martin. They all saw the gunman, but they all stated the truth – they did not see Martin Bryant. Thank you. The person this witness saw get shot inside the cafe, the person who called out “No No Not Here,” is believed to be Anthony Nightingale, a suspected intelligence agent. (see INDEX)”
The news clip from ABC archives shows Mr Croswell in hospital, but his narrative does not mention Martin Bryant.
This is the depth of depravity into which our mainstream media will prostitute themselves to keep the real truth from the public.
We could make excuses for the ABC journalist as she would have been a young girl at the time of Port Arthur, however she was either under instruction or had not bothered to do any basic research about the events of that fateful day at one of Tasmania’s iconic convict outposts.
NOTE: Cairns News does not in any way suggest Peter David Croswell is involved in a cover-up of the actual events at Port Arthur, then or now. Major amendments to Australia’s costly, unworkable and ineffective gun laws are long overdue consequently the Cairns News editorial board wishes the Tasmania Liberal Party all the best for the election and sincerely hopes it can retain government. Read our archives for more in-depth investigations of this tragic event. There you will discover a photograph and the names of the real shooters, as well as the true reason why the President of the Australian senate was forced to quit Parliament last year.
