"They [the media] are news-as-entertainment professionals – packaging glossy corporate content for maximum distribution and big bucks. The goal is not objective reportage. Their targets are quantifiable and highlighted in a business plan somewhere. Success is based on a simple formula: stay within parameters "understandable" to a wide audience that devours sound bites and familiar storylines on the hour, every hour.

Like trained seals whose every desire, instinct and buying pattern has been measured by corporate media's marketing department for the consumption of its advertisers, the audience demands satisfaction – and western media delivers it." -- Sharmine Narwani

In a landmark decision, the Queensland Supreme Court has ruled that the COVID-19 vaccine mandates for police officers and paramedics were unlawful.

Justice Glenn Martin delivered a detailed 115-page judgment on Tuesday, stating that the directives issued by Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll and John Wakefield, director general of Queensland Health, violated the Human Rights Act.

The contentious mandate required all police and health workers, including paramedics, to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of their employment.

Australia’s authorities are once again putting pressure on social media, X this time, threatening that the company will face big fines and “big trouble” in general – unless “mis- and dis-” information is censored.

The ruling implies that employers will no longer be able to claim that they are protected from compensation because they were complying with a lawful state government directive.

Australia has become the latest country to delve head-first into the first goal of The Great Reset, which is to digitise its citizens.

When digitised identities get matched with central bank digital currencies, it’s game over for freedom of thought, movement, etc. All human behaviour will be monitored, assessed and scored 24/7.

For the third time the Australian Senate voted down an inquiry into the nation’s high excess mortality today. Every Covid death mattered, but suddenly the politicians don't want to know what's killing thousands of people.

The taxpayer-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) has been forced to scrap a drag queen story time session for children as young as three after opponents forced a backdown.

The four-hour event set for a Sydney, NSW, suburb was designed to be a lead in to the city’s annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras week of events.

Drag performers were scheduled to read books to children which sparked outrage from locals, Christian groups, and lawmakers who questioned whether the session was appropriate for very young children.
