A Reuters report which claims the Russian death toll in Syria this year was four times higher than officially released data has drawn strong criticism from Moscow, with the defense ministry saying it causes nothing but contempt.

In his book “Times of Crisis” (2009 — published 2014 in English/US), on the GFC (Global Financial Crisis, with a punny reference to a French song “Le temps des Cerises”), Michel Serres tells us:

We celebrate our good luck in Australia but, writes Dr Samuel Douglas, when things don’t always go our way, we’d be glad to live somewhere that values the "fair go".

Born 115 years ago today in Hermannsburg, Northern Territory, Albert (Elea) Namatjira remains one of Australia’s most famous artists, for his landscape paintings that celebrated the country through a unique lens of reds, ochres and purples. His story is a tragic one: the Western Arrarnta man became the first Aboriginal to be granted Australian citizenship in 1957. He was then exempted from laws that denied Indigenous Australians the right to vote, own property and drink alcohol, but was arrested for introducing liquor into his community – a charge which he denied. He was released from prison after two months but never recovered, and died of a heart attack in 1959, aged 57.

Dante, following Virgil, comes to the gate of Hell; where, after having read the dreadful words that are written thereon, they both enter.

In the USA, the left leaning media has been marginalised. Some silly pundits call “The New York Times” a publication of the left — as if being a capitalist/Democrat supporter means being an organ in favour of equality and restraint of governmental abuses. It’s a bit like Le Monde in France or Der Speigel in Germany. These papers will expose the trickery of the Right but rarely expose the mischiefs of the “fancy caffe latte left”, which in the USA are the establishment hawks, the warriors and the cash manipulators of the Democratic party.

Today (23/7/17), the glacial Sundae Turdograph pluges to new depth in the sewer of effluential commentary on news and other subjects, including the unimportant Karl Stefanovic. Who? I hear you say.
