He Who Pays the Piper, Selects the Tune.

News is in the headlights of late and as the organisation’s bid for our gold coin per day we the public must also look at the quality we are being served up.

I’m on the record for being in favour of balanced and investigative journalism across the board and fortunate enough to have the time to be able to source different outlets world wide and my concerns about what is truth are growing.

Our news sources are diminishing and centralising, our national broadcaster is being defunded buy a thousand cuts, and extreme groups are infiltrating the talking heads who impersonate professional journalists, no wonder it becomes just too hard for joe citizen to find the illusive truth and turns off.

It’s red alert when media groups hold fund raising events for political party’s, when journalists are arrested for doing their job, when investigative journalism is regarded as a enemy of the state, and politicians run to politically friendly news services to avoid scrutinisation, we have to ask is this the way a democracy works or are we on the soft fascism road and no ones game to ask?

Loss of democracy moves slowly, feeding on apathy, as once we could regard media as the watchdog, but today that dog has too many masters, and we the punters are left making the decision who really is telling truth and who has a agenda to gain power in a government of their choice?

America, on the Highway to Hell. (Opinion)

Daily we on the outside can watch the antics of the politicians, the media, the cross cultural reactions and responses portrayed on whatever slanted media you want to suit your view.

It’s more interesting to go outside America to view the coverage of truly international sources and see non partisan journalism analyse and deliver copy without the complications of sponsors withdrawing funds from a network for example.

Such is America, every facet of their society having to facilitate their existence by sponsorship of some kind. Health, Politicians, law enforcement, education, Judges, States, their entire existence built on a capitalistic system which once served them well, now is being used as a weapon against its people and health.

Also, the ingrained culture of individualism, my rights, my freedoms, me,me me,the great American dream crawling over everyone and everything regardless of any ethics is admired, worshipped in fact, a culture that is vividly displayed in its discipline against Covid-19.

I’ll make it quite clear I have no, REPEAT NO time or respect for Trump or Biden, both in my mind are dangerous to the health of the nation in these times of absolute turmoil the nation is suffering, so much so it like selecting the bullet or the needle on which way you chose to die. Both senile old men, portraying they have the silver bullet to save America from it demise. Even if they change in November nothing will change the corrupt system of divide and conquer.

The saddest thing in fact is the people have no idea how a government for the people really works, and have been conditioned for that to be some sort of leftist communist plot, dumbed down by both sides to keep their arses in leather. Free medical, hospitalisation, and medications, the basic need for a population to survive in the richest country in the world (That’s America’s own Propaganda Spin) could be done but for the influence of big profit making companies who are sponsoring the politicians who are on the take openly accepting cash to keep the status quo.

Just imagine a Crime and Corruption investigation as in Australia into American politicians across the nation. Where would you start? They would have to build new jails first.

To the present, between now and November it’s my assumptions of what May evolve into certain scenarios

.1 Trump will ramp up the pressure so the blacks will not be able to turn out to vote.

2 In a short time Trump will activate his Cult to counteract public discourse and you will have civil conflict elevated to a point of war, a survival tactic for him, and I think the politicians will be too scared to act.

3 Covid 19 in the background will kill over a 2 million Americans and it will happen quicker as he will downplay its spread as political democratic plot.

4 Biden will loose and a political vacuum will be created as Germany where any opposition to government and media will be outlawed and rule by declaration will apply, and the politicians will be too scared to act.

5 Biden wins and by the time it takes to re invent the new administration, settle the riots of the Trump Cult, and Lefties, and then Covid 19 is out of control and looking at 3million deaths he will declare a national state of emergency and have to have troops on the street, and it goes on from there.

A failed state, with a government structure that cannot facilitate any resurrection and to be quite honest will have to hit the absolute bottom, and then and only then will it be able to make America great again, but in a totally different way where it’s people are it’s biggest asset not it’s dollars.

In world terms, while all this unrest is taking place the world has bypassed Trump and is making its own arrangements, and again the people are blindsided by his hat logo.. as did Hitler with his logo and I might add it’s amazing Trump has declared ANTIFA a terrorist organisation..

History Lesson, check Google, ANTIFA (ANTI FASCIST) was formed in the 1930’s to fight against Mussolini, Hitler, and other fascists despots and being them to justice internationally. Used by America in the Nuremberg trials, and is ongoing around the world so its clear Trump and his media support fascism, America style, obviously, and that should make that public.

In saying that, the parasites that are doing the looting and burning need to be identified, and charged. There agenda is anarchy, which is a right wing cause if history serves me correct, (English riots as we speak) but can be both.

And I hope I’m wrong… so wrong and be pleased to eat humble pie.

With red wine of course !!!!

Keep the Electric Fence on our Boarders.

In these different times to some and others indifferent my observations of my fellow humans is becoming frustrating to say the least.

A visit to my local bakery and on arrival all customers were observing the distance markers and progressing in a respectful fashion and in walks a lady with a kid past people waiting outside and both totally ignorant of others protocols.

Before full lockdown was declared we had the grey nomads in their vans rat running at night to avoid the government requests to stay put in their parks and police, so age is not a benchmark for stupidity levels.

New Zealand has recognised Queensland’s effort as a world standard and prepared to enter a travel bubble, irking those states with lower performance rates to try and drag us down by opening the borders and us to their failed government decisions like the Ruby Princess.

It’s quite obvious the federal government like Trump see business first and lives second and is playing classic wedge politics, supported by its slanted media outlets to spin its dollar driven agenda.

We Queenslanders have done the hard yards well before the Federal Government and the other states penny dropped and yes the capitalistic system has failed and we have fallen into the socialistic safety net, truly irking those who think their world of everything has a price, and lives are part of that price.

Murdock Butchers our Local Newspapers

For those who are not so News aware the Murdock Press has made the decision to cease all hard copy news papers to the regional and country areas across Australia and go digital.

This action in effect sends the little and older generations into news darkness as many have no IT or basic computer knowledge.

This may have been self inflicted by some granted as they refused to grow with the times and others unable to grow due to educational limits.

With all that’s said, the facts are people will loose the fabric that binds smaller communities together, a lifestyle that is incomprehensible to the self centred generations living their little boxes with make believe acquaintances online, many unable to communicate face or face let alone read and comprehend a news article.

A bit savage you may think? Yes but truthful and if you need proof, spend a hour or two on a polling booth and see humanity in its raw form doing something that should effect their lives and their family’s.

You will be amazed at the ignorance not only of the political systems but of general manners expected of a human being.

That said as true to form as you can get from Murdock the said they’d keep regional and small papers on takeover from APN and they lied, nothing new again from these bottom feeders of toxic text, and they will expect you to buy the Courier Mail if you want a hands on paper which in fact is nothing more than a LNP newsletter as I have stated many times and subedited out or simply consigned to the junk mail.

Truth and Murdock should never be put in the same sentence, as you now know from their actions.

In my case my editorial days may be limited as many times before my View does not sit with the owners ideology and I have been extremely lucky to have a editor who still feels balanced reporting is a key factor in a democracy, but like the QT she too is moving and many of the contributors may join me in the junk mail due to our views clashing with the owners ideology also.

That’s life but it does not help those who have been thrown into darkness, those businesses who’s adds were accessible freely will not have a presence of picking up a paper, the sporting body who wants any press to help them survive, the cocky who wants the cattle prices, the auctioneer, the church, the garage sale, and you can go on all gone to the iPad or smart phone of the fortunate.

To be honest I’m looking at community radio as a service, not a competitive entity but NFP (non for profit) organisation and any other media stream APP to try and compensate the losses, and any ideas please fill in at the bottom of this blog. Also Periscope the live App has been mentioned.

And I cannot close without mentioning the silence of the Hanson’s, the Katters, the Nationals all supposed to represent country people but obviously terrified to upset their puppet master Murdock, their absolute silence says why we as a nation need to govern ourselves for ourselves not run the agenda of a non tax paying overseas jerk , but not one of the conservatives have the guts to call him out. Political Harlots. All looking for that headline from Rupert.

Why America, Why??

At the risk of being told I know nothing again abut America one can only surmise that the once greatest nation in the world ,if you listen to the them, that is is crashing into a totally failed state. #Failure

I appreciate they were totally disenchanted with politics after Obama, and they punished themselves by jumping on the Trump train OR were that that lethargic they thought Clinton would shit in and didn’t bother to get off their arse to vote.

Either way they would have elected a fraud. #Failure

No doubt Clinton was the establishmentarian puppet and following Obama would be a tough act to follow. Looking at the Obama stint one thing is certain, Americans broadly could not accept a black president event though he was a Blue the undertones within his own party reflected a racial culture deeply Imbedded, and how he completed his tenure without a attempt on the life’s of him or his family was remarkable.

No one can imagine, even the media the internal networks that have vested interests in both sides so it’s the average Joe Citizen runs a solid last when it comes to the earning a priority from government, yet they reject any government support in health or wellbeing as some sort of socialist plot exemplified by fact government has outsourced responsibility to big businesses who sponsor their election campaigns. No it’s not corrupt at all, trust them, so I fully understand their attitude. A #Failure in human rights as not all can be privileged to have any Health cove so they will die in the gutter.

By keeping the masses dumbed down, a state that is easy when you control the media coverage into minimal outlets all within America you can sell the masses like mushrooms in the dark and feed them bullshit., particularly when you have a illiteracy rate numbering higher than the entire Australian population. Another #Failure their society.

I won’t go down the road of equality to all because that is a impossible dream, be it equal rights for women, races, sexes even religions, educating the masses and cultures is enormous but our country Australia #Failure gets a #Failure that category if the truth is known.

Enter Trump and his Drain the Swamp, Make America Great slogan and the destruction of the establishment became a obsession as Hitler did when he took his dictatorship, exterminating opposition and controlling media or eliminating it, and it worked until enter #covid_19 at distraction at the time, a plot to overthrow him, while his total focus was on getting the stock market up to keep his backers bankrolled, while selling himself as a man of the downtrodden, and they bought it hook line and sinker and still do.

This virus however has highlighted the fact Trump has Mental health issues magnified by the heat in the kitchen, exposing a psychopath with split personalities and actions and whoa behold anybody who gets in the way of a personality governed by a poll or media report or a professional who tells truth to the masses in contradiction to his spin. A #Failure sheer basic democracy that extends to what will be genocide as a result of sheer incompetence.

So what of the future or the way forward for the Trumps Titanic ?

Personally I see no way out in the near future. Politically I believe Trump will continue as Biden is a absolute #Failure as a person, a politician, and a leader,and should never be the nomination but that’s America #Failure in itself and while they continue to elect senile old men to their congress and presidency the nation will be continually locked in the past as by keeping there outdated constitutional beliefs waiting for the British to re invade.

The Republicans will eventually tire or he of them and he will move to his own Party or Cult to survive and mobilise his followers to a civil rebellion if he looks like being defeated, and who would back Biden not getting the nomination at the big conference and them accept a nomination from the floor. Wow the odds of that are about as far out as Trump starting a war to deflect the masses when the true death toll of #covid_19 is revealed.

Someone’s God better Bless America it’ll need it real soon.

Our Youths Health is Not a Political Tool

There is lot of political noise about who when and where our educational system will resume to what is seen as normal again but let’s see who is driving this debate and If our kids are really the cherished concern of politicians.

The higher education faction are split into the high profit making sector and the general day to day public sector both with differing needs highlighting the fact that education should never be outsourced with reliance on outside clientele to support our national mainstream system.

Out tiered primary and secondary system geared to the your wallet is always a tool used as a vote catcher appeasing the ideology’s of each and every constituency hence we are having this national debate on when is it safe to return to schools.

Our National Cabinet of State Premiers is proving it worth and each premier has the responsibility for their populations some vastly different in demographic, density, and cultural diversity so no comparison can be drawn, however that does not stop politicians and the media making hay out of this complicated situation made worse by a PM spreading crumbs to keep his keepers on side.

Until we put our youth’s health and well-being first and unleash the media on who is stands to make a buck by getting their puppets to squark, we will be no better than Trump’s America.

Goughs Quote Hits home In Covid-19 Times

We are all updated daily if not hourly on how the Covid -19 battle is going at home and with our trading partners little media is being give to the poorest and less higher profile nations fight against the virus.

This is a vital mistake and oversight not only will it keep the virus alive worldwide but it time will effect every manufacturing process and eventually our national supply

All manufacturing process start with the basic minute product at the start of the chain and many of those poor nations supply and manufacture those basic products at sweat shop rates.

If the virus become rampant in those nations that link ceases to exit and the chain slows or dies effecting basically every item we use.

We have all become aware that our workers, the truck-loaders, drivers , shop assistants, cleaners are vital to our survival and these poorer nations products and services are critical to the manufacturing process so it’s in our own interested, particularly the more affluent nations to support these struggling ones for our own benefit.

Unfortunately in the past the narrow views of foreign aid has been apolitical football for the ignorant, now that self interest will come back and bite us.

Gough’s Quote rings so true in these times

“The punters know that the horse named Morality rarely gets past the post, whereas the nag named Self-interest always runs a good race.

Gough Whitlam, writing in the London Daily Telegraph on October 19, 1989.”

Let’s be The Adults and Not Play The Blame Game.

Like on the farm you just have to accept animals do what they do as part of life. In politics it’s the same. 

In a world that is in kayos, millions being infected and death now accepted as  the norm, some of our illustrious leaders are looking for blame. 

Waisting  vital political oxygen on it where the focus should be on survival of their citizens shows they just can’t get away from their own personal politics of political survival first. 

There will be plenty of time later to do the risk assessments and cause and effect processes but now it’s time  leadership and bi partisan behaviour at the highest level. The infantile behaviour of Trump trying to deflect his incompetence mirrors a Romper Room episode gone bad, yet it seems our government wants to join his sandpit as a show of lapdog solidarity. 

We should stand with the adults in the room and get on with sticking process that so far is saving lives but this movement by our foreign minister sends the cynics a clear message that we may follow America in trading our standards of protection off for capital gain regardless of lives lost. 

We are a intelligent race us Aussies so let’s not get ahead of the game, beat the virus first then rebuild our economy and social structures with zest from the bottom up.

Let’s Lead and not Follow.

Titanic Trump ask Anyone.

I’m am not a supporter of any political side in America, and to be quite honest I think both Trump and Biden should be in nursing homes. Both verging on senility, one a psychopath who changes personality as the polls or the wind blows, the other stumbling and old man who I find dodgy to say the least.

Trump has no social conscience only self preservation and would have no problem abandoning ship and leaving the people to die if the polls or Fox indicated he would somehow gain in PR or politically.

I think the Titanic photo about nails his personality and reactions to a tee and the lower demonstrates his ability to keep the American people dumbed down.

I was totally devastated to see who’s is happening, but after siding with the dissenters on separation he signed the nations death warrant now I feel nothing can stop America from apocalyptic genocide of itself and all you can do is watch it happen in slow motion and record.

I am quite comfortable saying if Trump had decisions on who to live he would have no hesitation to decide by political affiliations, ethnicity, religion, or whatever his whim is at they particular moment as they did in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

History is live and free and Trump is the “Best Captain of the Titanic ask anyone.”

This Play is not a Rehearsal

Today our national archive is calling for our reflections on what is happening to our lives as we speak so it can be kept in the annals of time forever.

They are calling on all citizens to contribute and that will be a true record of what is happening at this point in time regardless of any political pressure or spin.

We as Aussies have the natural ability to self analyse or not backward in analysis of each other in public without much fear of being shot ,maimed, or sued if we go outside public expectations of behaviours.

We are fortunate and we do have vast opinions across many subjects and probably I’d be safe in saying religion is the most source of divide, then politics and racism fight for the lowest common denominator.

Over my life I have been through the phases of submission, rebellion, inclusion, exclusion, independence, reliance, and many others as me and my family evolve often with totally different opinions and views yet still close and maintaining respect.

Health is the most important issue and really nothing else matters. Money and status is jack shit if you body is fucked. Yeah the relatives will be caring up front while they are thinking what’s in in for me if you do have some sort of legacy pending.

The phrase “ I want nothing from death” sometimes rings truth, and other times a blatant lie, what I will say is generational ethos of to make your kids life better than yours was more prevalent in the post war baby boomer parents while their kids are much more selfish and self centred in many cases.

As a boomer I’m embarrassed daily on the behaviour of some of my aged counterparts who over time have forgotten their parents standards and become those Quiet Australians who’s focus is on self interest, spending the inheritance, grey nomad, all about me because I earned it, and I’m a victim look at me ,I’m special ,mentality which would make our parents roll in their graves.

That also should be recorded in the archives which is now magnified under the restrictions of the #covid_19 .

Saturday last we made a legal trip to our doctor for the full flu shot which was done in a regimented military precision exercise for safety, instructions clear and precise yet we witnessed older generations stalking the doors, impatiently pushing in on people who we’re complying with instructions.

Just plain grubs, driving their new cars all much more important than those about them and sadly it’s now ingrained in their personalities.

How far have we fallen from our Aussie roots I ask?

Then we see the next generation with no control over their kids leaving it to everyone else to educate and set standards as often the parents which are morally bankrupt themselves.

The current world crisis might shake a few ideologies as well individual self analysis as I hope we are in need of a life reset in this nation. The last thing we want or need is the American model that is proving so self destructive as the dog eat dog capitalistic system based on profit over people will play out before your eyes and the results incomprehensible to not only us but worldwide. Fragmentation of public service responsibilities at national level may seem cost effective, politically blame shifting, at the ultimate cost to its population. Money is useless, business is irrelevant until the virus is defeated and trying to give it a timeline is idiotic without real developed vaccines not silver bullets. Trump and his cronies are looking for those bullets and it’s pure fantasy deluding the population as Hitler did as they were closing in on Berlin.

Truth is the first casualty of war, so please listen to real news from real journalists not talking heads, opinion junkies, all looking for self indulgence…

And yes I could be judged but I don’t have a rating or advertising accountabilities, my opinion is just that , a opinion.

Cheers
