Abbott: Majority Doesn’t Rule Unless I Agree With Them! – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Just when I started thinking how pleasant it is here in New Zealand where the press don’t report everything that the person leading the Liberal Party says – they don’t even report on what the titular head, Turnbuckle, says – the person determining policy pops up in London to explain that just because scientists agree that doesn’t mean that they’re right.

Hannity goes rogue, helping O’Reilly attack the women who reported him for sexual harassment and asking him to return to Fox

Fox News host Sean Hannity turned his radio show into a platform for embattled former colleague Bill O’Reilly to undermine the reports of sexual harassment that led Fox to terminate his employment earlier this year, and repeatedly urged him to return to the network. Hannity’s decision to take the side of his former colleague over his employer provides more evidence that he is a rogue actor who is no longer restrained by the network.

The Genuine Article in Australian Politics – » The Australian Independent Media Network

 

The Australian, a Murdoch paper usually in favour of drum beating reactionary politics, found this particular idea dazzling for its original stupidity. “The proposal to invade Iraq raises the issue of Mr Abbott’s judgment – it was made two months before his decision to award a knighthood to Prince Philip.” Trump would have been impressed with both.If deploying Australian armed personnel into a Ukrainian war zone to consolidate an air crash site was possible, he would also step up to the mark. This nugget surfaced in the revelations of former Australian Army officer James Brown, who called this “the clearest case in recent times of a prime minister struggling to grasp the limits of Australian military power”.

This is what Sean Hannity’s Fox News show is like on a daily basis. It’s pure propaganda, an effort to support the president at every turn, while castigating his enemies — particularly the press. His viewers are living in an alternate reality — one that he’s carefully crafted to benefit Trump.

How to lie with Statisics.| Andrew Bolt’s Threat

The invasion of Germany continues: 250,000 more

 Image result for Images of  German welcome

Bolt’s Threat 
“This is going to end very badly”

Bolt’s predictions last year were  that  1mill plus refugees invaded Germany . He reduced that to 600,000, the official numbers in his latest and recent blogs, simply because the official data showed the 1 million figure was obvious bullshit. However he’s back again saying  the 2015 number  was a million  400,000 more than the official figure why, for impact alone.

How disappointed is he that this year’s estimate is only  250 – 300 k a little over  the 220,000  of Australia’s immigration intake. Germany is  a country with X4 times our population so comparatively the  600,000  input in 2015 is 33% proportionately less than us. Consequently the truth in fact is not as bad as it seems” .

 With aging populations small towns in Germany are crying out for immigrants to replace their dying populations. Like Shepparton in Australia they are only too grateful for newcomers who have integrated exceptionally well when welcomed. You can’t rely on Andrew Bolt for any truth in  news can you! He’s the Arthur Daley of media selling truth without wheels no without an engine. 

Immigrants in Sweden are beginning to get homesick and apparently leaving the EU in greater numbers  something Bolt doesn’t tell you, which indicates they never arrived for economic opportunity alone. Bolt’s greatest argument was these people were economic refugees. In fact the poorest remain in camps outside the EU. These people are in fact  home sick. So Andrew Bolt not only exaggerating the numbers but he isn’t even  attempting to quote nett  annual numbers. He’s simply putting in numbers to feed his imaginary story to whip up fear. Incoming refugee numbers are dropping and outgoing are increasing which simply says if the wars the West began stop Bolt’s Muslim invasion is little more than a right wing fantasy. Nigel Farage Bolt’s not he is however worse and more like Trump even a bigger liar supported by News Corp.  Who is also all  biggest media support of all three.
