• Socialist Left taking over Victorian Labor

    That’s what the headline should be. This is what we find instead: Dan warned over party bloodshed which completely misleads any potential reader about what is going on. Here’s the sentence that matters. The administrative body – controlled by Daniel Andrews’ Socialist Left faction … is looking to oust several “internal enemies”. “Oust several internal…

  • “Former US president Donald Trump was right …”

    Now there were words I have not seen in any newspaper anywhere, possibly ever. Yet there they are in today’s Oz in Adam Creighton’s column: I caught Covid and it was no big deal – providing a perspective equally rare in this day and age. Here’s the full sentence: Former US president Donald Trump was right…

  • “Just zip it Andrews…we have had enough of you”

    I think Daniel Andrews is finally beginning to see what a screw up he has been and how tragically he has mangled the response to Covid. Of course, he doesn’t put it quite that way: Andrews declares Covid response a ‘triumph’. From the article: Daniel Andrews has declared Victoria’s response to the pandemic has been a…

  • All-cause mortality tells the story

    Israel started vaxxing young children in late November, as did Canada and the United States. Reports out of the UK suggest it may start there in Spring.  I see from this morning’s news that the TGA here has “provisionally approved” Pfizer for 5- to 11-years-olds. Only one child under 12 years has died with Covid…

  • Leunig in conversation

    With Nick Cater of the Menzies Research Institute. He does not describe himself as a conservative but he sees that some of the best commentary at present is coming from conservative voices.

  • Mater’s Musings #44: Again, why stab the kids?

    STOP: DO NOT FLICK BACK TO THE OPEN THREAD JUST BECAUSE YOU SEE A GRAPH DOWN PAGE. As of October, the CDC started providing weekly data on COVID-19 cases and deaths by vaccination status. Let me start this thread by saying that I’ll treat this data as though it is a true reflection of reality,…

  • We’re all stuck in South Park

    I wish this was actually in any way funny. It is a madness that just will not go away. I came upon and watched these one after another with the parallels so striking it is beyond idiocy. We should be ashamed but this is where we now are at. 

  1. This gas shortage hasn’t happened by accident, or just, sort of, crept up. And it’s actually not due to Big…

  2. Also anyone want to bet money their ABCcess just happens to rerun a few nuclear disaster films/series in the next…

  3. Being unplugged from much of the current psychopathy, I’m unaware of the ‘Jeep’ story, but only hope that the four…

  4. Ronnie RAAF, earlier, and clearly still smarting from previous interactions (backhanders) on this august journal of record: Perhaps some of…
