One of the reasons I write for Pravda.Report is its gracious editors frequently allow me to avoid the esoteric punditry and subdued tone that America’s corporate-controlled media often demand. In that media world, behind every political action or inaction there is supposedly a well thought out “strategy,” and any sense of urgency about the consequences of such actions or inactions is diluted.
I say this to stress that there is nothing esoteric about politics and law in America today, and nothing to justify the current complacency. Trump is a criminal and Barr is a Trump lackey and an unabashed liar, and the United States Congress is allowing both of them to destroy America’s democracy for future generations.
Impeachment is not an “option.” It is a necessity.
Those who doubt this, I close with Amash’s words: “America’s institutions depend on officials to uphold both the rules and spirit of [America’s] constitutional system even when to do so is personally inconvenient or yields a politically unfavorable outcome. [America’s] Constitution is brilliant and awesome; it deserves a government to match it.”

I seem to remember Christensen, also in 2017, ranting against foreign aid, saying that “not one dollar should be spent on foreigners.”
Christensen is paid a significant salary, and very generous entitlements, to represent the people of Dawson and, further, to make the laws which govern all Australians. He is not paid to spend months overseas visiting his girlfriend.
The Hippocratic Oath pits the Liberal Party against Medicine. Politicians are better judges of illness because doctors can’t be trusted as Tony Abbott ex- trainee priest and PM Scott Morrison devout Christian say “doctors are too compassionate” Their justification is a rumoured ASIO leak that sounds more Trump than Australian. This Bill will allow the currently detained murderers,drug traffickers criminals and pedophiles into the country. How Trumpster fearmongering is that? How amazing as soon as your’e elected to politics you become smarter than a Doctor, know all about climate science and have direct access to god.(ODT)
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has declared the government will not negotiate over a bill giving doctors more say in treating sick refugees, setting up a pre-election battle on border security if Labor votes for the legislation next week.
“Bring back Sam Dasyari Abbott says “I didn’t know” isn’t good enough. He was there touting for donations (ODT).
The Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s CCP influence researcher Alex Joske said the event included “some of the most prominent and active United Front players” to ever share a room in Australia.
“These United Front figures seek to be seen as representatives of the Chinese community but they are in fact advocates of CCP interests. They dismiss claims of the CCP’s foreign interference campaigns and instead emphasise the friendly trade based relationship with China,” he said.
Has anybody been to the psych ward of a public hospital? It’s not unusual to find people with severe mental health issues to be telling you they are Jesus or getting messages from god,being paranoind an a danger to themselves an others. We don’t instantly label them as ‘radicalized’ or even self-radicalised terrorist Christians. However if a Muslim has these mental issaues we don’t describe them as severely mentally ill. Why is it politician’s and the conservative right-wing media jump the gutter and immediately declare we are all in danger. The problem being is that we have buried the issue of menal health so that none of us recognize it and if we do we do nothing about it and often allow it to escallate and then excuse it for something else and that’s not a religious issue. Christians with severe mental illness exiist and have done extreme criminal things that have take them to Thomas Embling the hospital for the criminally insane and even under the most strict supervision serious incidents have even occurred there. Our issus isn’t “Muslim radicalisation” our problem is we refuse to recognize the increasing mental health problems our youth are suffering. We refuse to recognize that our politicians and media politicize events for their opportunity disregarding experts who tell them they are wrong. Currently we see White Right-Wing Christian terrorists week after week in the USA killing more Americans than Muslims ever did since 9/11. In that case politicians readily look for the mental health issues and avoid the “radical right” narrative. Our politicians need to stop politicizing the division between religions and calling it a National Security issue when it’s clearly a mental health one. Ali like Garoulos both were criminally insane both terrorized but neither were terrorists. Not a word mentioned about mental health here

Iran’s mullahs are corrupt, but the Trump administration isn’t perhaps the one with the standing to criticize them.
Pompeo complained about Iran’s “aggression.” Iran hasn’t militarily invaded another country for a very long time. The United States, in contrast, overthrew the elected Iranian government in 1953 and aggressively invaded Iraq in 2003 with no casus belli, occupied it for 8.5 years, and left it a smoldering mess to this day. The US goes around overthrowing democratically elected governments the way Switzerland makes watches and chocolates. Moreover, not only has the US been active in invading other countries, but its chief client in the region, Israel, invaded or mounted bombing campaigns against others in 1956, 1967, 1982, 2006, 2009, and 2014. Pompeo is all right with those acts of aggression.
In response the NIAC reply
“It should be abundantly clear that Secretary Pompeo, who called for bombing Iran instead of negotiations, is no friend of the Iranian people.”
—Jamal Abdi, National Iranian American Council
Far from what its title would suggest, National Iranian American Council (NIAC) vice president for policy Jamal Abdi argued in a statement that Pompeo’s speech is a blatantly cynical effort to “exploit” Iranian-Americans with the goal of advancing the Trump administration’s aggressive regime change push.
“What President Trump and Secretary Pompeo want is to exploit Iranian Americans and co-opt the Iranian people to provide legitimacy for the Trump administration’s Iraq War redux for Iran,” Abdi said. “Just as the Bush administration cultivated a few Iraqi exiles and talked about human rights to provide legitimacy for a disastrous invasion of Iraq, the Trump administration appears intent on using Iranian exiles to advance dangerous policies that will leave the Iranian people as its primary victims.”
“It should be abundantly clear that Secretary Pompeo, who called for bombing Iran instead of negotiations, is no friend of the Iranian people,” Abdi added. “As Americans, we have a vital role to play in ensuring our democratically elected government does not start wars on false pretenses or destroy lives in our names. As Iranian Americans, our voices are particularly vital when it comes to the U.S. government’s efforts regarding our ancestral homeland. We will not be exploited or silenced at this critical moment in history.”

Tasmanian antiques dealer John Hawkins, said the election of Senator Abetz in 1994, 1998 and 2004 could only have been challenged in a 40-day window after each election. His election in the 2010 election could not be challenged because by the time Senator Abetz nominated for the 21 August 2010 election he was not a dual citizen.
Last year, Cory Bernardi wrote a blog entitled, “Freedom to Refuse Must Be Defended”, which included the following: “And this is the essence of the dilemma we now face; is it okay for any business to say they simply don’t want your business for any or no reason?” “Personally I think it is, but that…

Wednesday 10 February 2016 Bias is a bastard of a topic because it’s like rust. It spreads everywhere. The most common form of bias is found in sport. The one-eyed football supporter is so biased he/she can see no redeeming features about the opposition. Collingwood supporters in the AFL are acknowledged as the most feral…
