history is being written by the developing countries away from the american empire.....

History will not look fondly upon the “Nazis and the liberals” who are pushing progressive ideology, such as transgenderism, onto children, political analyst Jackson Hinkle told RT in an interview on Tuesday. 

The host of ‘The Dive with Jackson Hinkle’ stressed that the US and Western Europe are beginning to lose their global influence in an “ever-changing multipolar world” and are becoming a “hollow skeleton of power” and a “crumbling empire.” 

“Empires are most dangerous when they’re rising or falling, and right now that’s definitely the case for the United States and the West,” Hinkle said, noting that apart from a nuclear war, there is little Washington could do to stop the development of countries like China and Russia.  

breaking rupert's heart......

Rupert Murdoch often wishes that Donald Trump was dead during “frothing at the mouth” rants about the former US president, according to a new book.

The media tycoon’s Fox News backed Trump as he won the White House in 2016 but Murdoch, 92, is vehemently opposed to the possibility of a second Trump presidency.

Murdoch has become a “frothing at the mouth” critic of the 77-year-old, who is the overwhelming favourite to face Joe Biden, 80, in the 2024 presidential election.

Trump’s death has become a recurrent subject in the Australian billionaire’s rants, according to new book The Fall: The End of Fox News and the Murdoch Dynasty by Michael Wolff.

How Grandgouzier spared Toucquedillon humanely….

Toucquedillon was introduced to Grandgouzier, and questioned by him about the princely and affairs of Picrochole, what end he meant by this tumultuous uproar. To which Toucquedillon replied, that his end and his destiny was to conquest the whole country if he could, to avenge the offence done to his pâtissiers (cakemakers). 

zelensky is a liar.....

On Feb. 23, 2015, Robert Parry, the late founder of the CN website, warned that a U.S.-backed coup in Kiev and a war launched against the coup’s resisters in Ukraine’s east threatened the world with nuclear holocaust. It seemed an extreme position to take then. But does anyone think so today

a no-brainer: vote YES......

Australians have been able to witness the voter remorse that can arise when a nation votes on a specific question of policy in a referendum that has the potential to set their country on a new course. Referendum questions with that level of significance don’t come along very often for democratic nations but when they do the cost of getting them wrong can be far bigger than we might expect.


Remember Brexit? Australians will regret voting No on the Indigenous Voice    By Bronwyn Kelly


aussies — always singing and betting on war......

Increasingly I keep finding myself singing, even humming or whistling the old Graham Nash song, ‘Military Madness,’ sometimes hardly aware that I am doing so.

‘Military madness is killing my country

Solitary sadness comes over me,

War, war, war, war, war, war.’

Of course Australia has always been obsessed with war. While still ‘opening up the country’ in the Frontier Wars, euphemistically called, ‘the drive,’ we couldn’t wait to test our military mettle overseas. Involvement in the Maori Wars (1845-72) was followed by an expeditionary force sent to Sudan (1885), with Australians soon back fighting on the African continent in the Boer War (1899-1902).


back to the treadmill......

Ukrainian lawmaker Sergey Grivko has suggested using the country’s prison population as a source of electricity. According to the MP from the ruling Servant of the People party, inmates could use bicycle generators in exchange for shortened jail terms.   

In a Facebook post, Grivko revealed that he had “one of my creative bills registered” for consideration by the country’s parliament, TASS reported on Tuesday. He explained that he was aiming to “motivate 50,000 inmates to generate electricity with the help of bicycle generators.”   

The lawmaker suggested rewarding prisoners by shortening their terms by one month each year.    

baerbock’s absurd comments violate china’s political dignity.......

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has summoned German ambassador Patricia Flor after Berlin’s top diplomat, Annalena Baerbock, referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as a “dictator.” 

The ambassador “was summoned to the Chinese Foreign Ministry [on Sunday],” a spokesman from the German Foreign Ministry told AFP on Monday.

Baerbock made her remark while on a visit to New York on Thursday. Speaking to Fox News, she claimed that if the West allowed Ukraine to lose its conflict with Russia, this would embolden “other dictators in the world…Like Xi, the Chinese president.”

in need of federal protection as well....

 reportedly faced an assassination scare after a heavily armed man posing as his security entered his campaign event on Friday. 

The suspect was allegedly carrying two holstered weapons and a US Marshals badge when he entered the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in .

He was wearing protective gear and had two spare ammunition magazines in his possession, it has been reported.

He reportedly claimed he was part of Kennedy’s security detail when Federal ID approached him. Los Angeles Police later confirmed that a man was arrested for posing as a federal agent.

pour les pleurs et les cris sans yeux et sans oreilles.....

It is not the great ones, but the simple peasant, 

Whom the earth knows as children complacent

The earth does not like blood nor filth 

From tyrants and their impure hands comes nothing but blood and filth. 

The loving plowmen open nature’s breast with such beautiful colours,

Make the streams run through the green meadows, 

In variegated enamel, through the wild flowers; 

By order and by compass the azure gardens 

Show to the laughing sky their measured earths, 

The mown flowerbeds, and the straight paths

Ruler in hands, a straight line re-casts; 

They are painters, embroiderers, and then their large carpets blacken 

With grapes and turn yellow with spices from heaven; 

The shady forests, their more open dwellings, 

refreshing: a simple YES will do....

make the voice referendum a success.....

Tony Abbott’s prime ministership was short-lived and mostly memorable, for all the wrong reasons. But for Liberal conservatives in need of a feelgood story, the 10-year anniversary of Abbott’s landslide 2013 election win was an opportunity to let their greying hair down, with about 250 gathering at Sydney high school formal favourite Doltone House on Friday night to ruminate about what could’ve been...

The revellers included several relics of the Abbott government – among them former prime minister Scott Morrison, Abbott’s treasurer Joe Hockey, current shadow treasurer Angus Taylor and desiccated ex-Tasmanian senator Eric Abetz.

when war had a godly reason.....

The Massacre of Vassy (French: massacre de Wassy) was the murder of Huguenot worshippers and citizens in an armed action by troops of Francis, Duke of Guise, in Wassy, France, on 1 March 1562.


kisses from a walrus.....

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has received five kamikaze-drones and a Geran-25 surveillance drone from the governor of Russia’s Primorsky Region, Oleg Kozhemyako, the local administration has said.

The gifts to the North Korean leader, who was on the sixth and final day of his visit to the country, also included a full set of body armor for assault operations, the press-service of the Primorsky Region revealed on Sunday. The state-of-the-art gear provides protection to the chest, shoulders, throat and groin, while being “much lighter than any known counterparts,” it added.

The gifts were handed to Kim as he and Kozhemyako visited the Far East Street Exhibition on Russky Island in Vladivostok to inspect the hardware being produced in Primorsky Region for the needs of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.
