• Lockdowns our fault, apparently

    “The reality is that we can’t live in lockdown forever. We have to live with Covid and that means getting vaccinated as quickly as possible.” Reportedly, said Josh Frydenberg, taking aim on Monday at Australians who refuse to get the jab. Of course, name most every politician and their media cheerleaders from the left or…

  • The ongoing woke undermining of Australia’s economy

    The march of the woke inspired destruction of the free-market economy continues apace. The additional baggage it is being required to carry is evident from articles and views from the past couple of day’s media. The Business Council of Australia continues to call for additional costs to be imposed on the firms it is supposed…

  • “Ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID-19.”

    In regard to Ivermectin, you really need to read this: Ivermectin for COVID-19: real-time meta analysis of 63 studies. Very long, very detailed, but this was the bottom line. “Ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID-19.” Anyone who says anything else is [you tell me].

  • Mater’s Musings #18: More Perspective

    2020 2017 Let’s put that side by side to make it as clear as we can (noting the slight variation of the 0-44 age bracket): Yes, yes, I know – ‘But…but…but the lockdowns prevented greater deaths!’. How do we know it wouldn’t have just dwindled away like every other one before it, just like the…

  • Wind power fails in SA & Victoria

    SA took the lead in the green power race, blowing up their last two coal stations and achieving accolades as a “clean energy superpower”.

So here’s some positive news: Matthew Guy launching leadership coup to oust Michael O’Brien.  FORMER opposition leader Matthew Guy will launch a sensational bid to overthrow Liberal leader Michael O’Brien.

  • Mater’s Musings #17: Resistance to Interrogation

    Despite what you see in the movies, modern methods of interrogation are more about psychology and less about violence and pain. It aims to maximise the ‘shock of capture’ (which is always an unbalancing experience), and build on that through complete disorientation and disconnection from reality. This they do in order for you to do…

  • Rights into the Covid dustbin

    What does New York Mayor Bill De Blasio have in common with most right-of-centre commentators on, say, Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News Australia. To be fair, most everything is probably not the correct answer. However, what they do have in common is an appetite to relegate our inalienable or God-given rights to the category of privileges…
