View From The Hill: For Morrison, AUKUS is all about the deal, never mind the niceties | The New Daily

Scott Morrison, whose COVID face masks have the Australian flag emblazoned on them, likes to talk about “the Australian way” of doing things and Australian values. But it is not “the Australian way” to secretly plan, over a very long time, to deceive a close friend of this country, and then to treat them in a most humiliating and disdainful manner. That does not align with “Australian values” of honesty and fair dealing.

Fox News’ critical race theory obsession | Media Matters for America

Fox became a pipeline for attacks on the study of systemic racism

In its ongoing 11 month smear of critical race theory, Fox News has mentioned the topic no less than 552 times. Fox’s coverage began in the summer of 2020, focusing on schools attempting to fold anti-racism teachings into their curricula. First, Fox’s opinion side hosted Christopher Rufo, an anti-civil rights activist who has targeted critical race theory, and ginned up controversy over purposeful misreadings of the approach — before the network’s self-described “news” side took over to report on state attempts to ban the study of systemic racism in classrooms. The network’s coverage steadily climbed in 2021 and featured a massive spike in April, with 235 mentions in that month alone.

Republican Senator Ron Johnson, a staunch Trump sycophant, let his racist flag fly high when he said that he was unafraid of the insurrectionists on January 6 because they were not members of Black Lives Matter or antifa.

Housing Hypocrites: Tim Wilson’s housing affordability crusade just an assault on super – Michael West

Housing Hypocrites: Tim Wilson’s housing affordability crusade just an assault on super – Michael West
Housing affordability

Tim Wilson is the latest Coalition politician to cry crocodile tears over the housing affordability crisis, calling for Australians to access their superannuation to buy a house. Yet Coalition policies – from negative gearing, property subsidies, money-laundering, super fund borrowing to banking and lending standards – are all about pushing house prices up for those who already own them, writes Elizabeth Minter.

Biden Address: Deception

Biden's Inaugural Address: An Exercise in Mass Deception. 64166.jpeg
Democracy is and always will be at a tipping point. It’s a process that needs to be respected by at least a majority

While Putin is arrresting 1000’s of it’s citizens Pravda is crying corocodile tears, no real tears, for its asset lost Donald. Will the Russians finance his incompetence amplifying theirs?

They’re beholden to dark forces controlling them. Will martial law be declared ahead on the phony pretext of foreign threats and domestic terrorism to counter? Will what remains of a free and open society be replaced by full-blown totalitarian rule, enforced by police state harshness? Make no mistake. Biden/Harris and members of their regime are enemies of ordinary people, hostile to their interests, wanting them exploited, not served. Along with likely escalated foreign aggression against one or more invented enemies, homeland despotism will likely harden on their watch for our own good we’ll likely be told.

Revealed by the Wikileaks exposé: The fragile, thieving ‘un-Australian’ lie

No one knows what a right-wing politician means when they say ‘un-Australian’ in the present, least of all the politician saying it. It is not even a negation, but blanker than that. It reduces the meaning of Australian-ness down to whatever might, or might not, live inside the unconscious borders of the speaker at that particular time. ‘This is so postmodern’, I thought, the first time I heard one of the crazies say it, and I could almost smell the stale Union beer.

Sloppy Methodology: Social Media, Censorship and New York Post’s Hunter Biden Story – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Sloppy Rudi doing his best to scandalize Biden

The email correspondence had been purportedly obtained from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, though the owner of the computer repair store who passed on the material to the FBI and one Rudy Giuliani was unsure if Hunter had left the computer with him. Thin stuff to go on. Father Biden repeatedly claims to have never discussed his son’s “overseas business dealings” with him. The Biden election campaign has also denied that the meeting ever took place. “We have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.” At another time, the move by the platform might have caused a shrug of indifference. But Biden is leading in the polls. Every anti-Trump agitator is concerned to ease the pathway for the president’s defeat. Every advocate for Trump is keen to ensure that flames are lit under his opponent.

Satellite images expose China’s vast network of secret re-education camps in Xinjiang – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Illustration of Uyghur prisoners in front of the flag of China.

Isn’t this what Tony Abbott and right-wing pundits recomend for Indigenous Australia, and other Australian minorities ditching multiculturalism in favour of cultural asimilation. Indigenous, Muslim and African Australians represent over 6.5 % of Australia. Indigenous Australians represent 25% if not more Aussies in our retraing camps called prisons and youth detention centers and Dutton and Matthew Guy Islamophobic racists want more for disastrous outcomes.

China’s education camps of which we know very little represent 0.015%. There seems to be some level of heavy stone throwing at glass houses going on here with little interest in intention and outcomes. (ODT)

After years of frustration in winning the hearts and minds of disaffected ethnic groups, Dr Leibold believes Beijing has ditched its multicultural approach in favour of cultural “mingling”, or assimilation.

The prevailing party ideology dictates that social harmony can only be achieved with the “standardisation of human behaviour”.
