Australian media blockades the truth

As I write this there’s a convoy of trucks that are effectively blockading Ottawa, Canada. It has been brewing for a week now and has been pretty hard to miss but then, I don’t take any of my news from local news sources.

On Friday I worked with my business partner who is a very clever Elec Eng who takes his news from ABC, Ch7 or Fairfax. When I asked what he thought of the Canadian truckies, he just looked at me with a complete blank.

He’d never heard of it … not even a whisper.

So today I did some Googling (for what that’s worth) and confined the searches to Australian sites. Tried Microsoft Edge too but I got nothing except for a single mention from

Media blackout.

How is it that such a significant event is effectively wiped from the Australian consciousness?
All of them … all at once?

CBC News in the US reckons it’s the Russians of course.

So how does everybody feel about being lied to on a national scale?

Are we feeling safer yet?

Lucille Ball was suspected of being a communist!

I have friends who are reading a just-published book about the execution of Ethel Rosenberg for espionage in 1953. On the left, every issue from which more mileage can be driven remains alive forever and is stoked to the fullest extent thereafter. Of course, there is no doubt whatsoever that her husband, Julius, had passed on information on the building of the atomic bomb to the Soviets at a time when the Soviet Union was imposing communist regimes on each of the nations it had overrun at the end of World War II, and that she had assisted in the espionage. This is from Wikipedia which like most other sources of “information” on the net is heavily weighted to the left. 

For decades, the Rosenbergs’ sons (Michael and Robert Meeropol) and many other defenders maintained that Julius and Ethel were innocent of spying on their country and were victims of Cold War paranoia. After the fall of the Soviet Union, much information concerning them was declassified, including a trove of decoded Soviet cables (code-name: Venona), which detailed Julius’s role as a courier and recruiter for the Soviets. Ethel’s role was as an accessory who helped recruit her brother David into the spy ring and did clerical tasks such as typing up documents that Julius then passed to the Soviets. 

Guilty, guilty, guilty. 

So why bring this up? Because of this movie review which I saw in The Age Continue reading “Lucille Ball was suspected of being a communist!”

Where’s the evidence that these vaxxines are actually safe?

Police look on as protesters gather in Melbourne's CBD.

From Melbourne’s ‘freedom’ protest fever spreads across the country but I want you to notice this passage in particular.

“No matter how much misinformation and propaganda you put out there, Victoria is going to win.”

Dr Cumming has appeared regularly at the anti-government protests and has been promoting them online.

She railed against the vaccination of children with a COVID-19 jab and claimed Mr Andrews was “coming after her children”.

The vaccines approved for use in Australia have strong scientific backing as being both safe and effective in preventing COVID-19.

“I want to make this very clear, Daniel, when you come after my children you come after every single Victorian,” Dr Cumming said. “We are together as a freedom family… Good luck Mr Andrews.”

And what I found so remarkable was the second-last para which you will notice has no quotation marks. It is a parenthetical comment made either by the journalist or an editor that completely distorts what Dr Cumming was trying to say. 

The vaccines approved for use in Australia have strong scientific backing as being both safe and effective in preventing COVID-19.

What’s more, the statement is false. There is an ocean of evidence related to the dangers related to these vaxxines but you will not read any of it in the mainstream press or see it discussed anywhere in the electronic media.

Which reminds me of this: FDA will wait until 2076 to release Pfizer Vaccine data….

The FDA has asked a federal judge to make the public wait until the year 2076 to disclose all of the data and information it relied upon to license Pfizer’s vaccine.

It wants 55 years to produce this information to the public.

Surely that must make you wonder why they are so reluctant to put this information before the public at the present time, especially if we “have strong scientific backing [that the vaxxines are] both safe and effective in preventing COVID-19.” 


Now there is this to think about: European Medicines Agency Data Shows 1,163,356 Adverse Drug Reactions and 30,551 Fatalities by COVID-19 Vaccinations

The official European Union database of suspected drug reaction website is now reporting 30,551 fatalities and 1,163,356 adverse drug reactions from COVID vaccines Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and AztraZeneca through November 13, 2021 based on the data submitted to its system….

All the data shown in the websiteand individual case report forms were taken from EudraVigilance, “a system designed for collecting reports of suspected side effects, used for evaluating the benefits and risks of medicines during their development and monitoring their safety following their authorization in the European Economic Area (EEA).”…

From ADRreports website:

  • A side effect is classified as ‘serious’ if it (i) results in death, (ii) is life-threatening, (iii) requires hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation, (iv) results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity (as per reporter’s opinion), (v) is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, or (vi) results in some other medically important conditions.

30,551 fatalities is not a trivial number and there were far more side-effects than that. Who is Daniel Andrews or anyone else to tell others that they must take these vaxxes to participate in society?

The Age fires Michael Leunig for contradicting the covid narrative

Freedom of the press also apparently includes the right to suppress news you do not want anyone to hear. This, however, is astounding: The Age cartoonist Michael Leunig axed after anti-Dan Andrews cartoon. The story is from The Oz.

“Gay feels this type of cartoon is not in line with public sentiment, and The Age’s readership, who it does seem are largely in favour of the Andrews Covid narrative. But my job is to challenge the status quo, and that has always been the job of the cartoonist.”

Leunig cartoon

That is, Age readers refuse ever to see or read anything that contradicts what they already prefer to believe. It is obviously the editor’s responsibility to ensure this never happens. Leunig, however, has a different view.

“If what Gay says is right, I don’t much want to work for the sorts of readers who are so censorious. It seems that at The Age in particular, you can’t go near the Covid story except in a way that’s supportive of the Victorian government’s handling of it. And if you’re not supportive, that’s reason enough for you to be cancelled.”

Speaking of Dan Andrews, and also from The Oz.

Good thing he doesn’t work for The Age.

What he means is that the media are filled with political fools from one end to the other

He doesn’t even add that there is a strong possibility that the election was stolen. He is focusing on the absolute stupidity of those who wished to see Donald Trump lose and Joe Biden win. And this was with virtual unanimity the media, not just in America but across the world.
