By Mike Lyons There has been constant discussion about whether Australia needs to choose between its ally, United States of America or China, its major trading partner. Make no mistake, Australia has chosen and its clear choice is USA Observing Australian leaders pandering to the whim of USA leaves no […]
The way Australian authorities have acted in regards to ten years of TORTURE of Julian Assange, is proof that Australia de facto is not independent country. Various governments of Australia (Liberal-National Party as well as Australian Labour Party) just followed instructions issued by senior members of the “Five Eyes” (United […]
This is who they’ll end up targeting going forward, and whatever Biden and Company wind up rolling out to fight ‘domestic terrorism’ will help them do so.
“There’s no way anybody can come and play around with our country… We cannot tolerate this arrogance of anybody coming to decide for us who is good and who is bad.”
British Judge Vanessa Baraitser has ruled against US extradition for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, but not for the reasons she should have. Baraitser’s frightening ruling supported virtually every US prosecutorial argument that was made during the extradition trial, no matter how absurd and Orwellian. This includes quoting from a long-discredited CNN report alleging without evidence that Assange made […]
The new documentary I Am Greta follows the Swedish soothsayer from when she began her protests in 2018 to today. It was intended to show her global campaigning impact, but my feeling after watching it was just one of pity.

Social media has replaced genuine human contact with abstract virtual connections that encourage selfishness, narcissism and anti-social behavior.
John Hewson The case for a truly independent Federal Integrity and Anti-corruption commission is beyond question If, in today’s COVID world, we could do a “pub test”, the message would undoubtedly be that people simply can’t understand why the major parties haven’t got together and established it years ago. Rather […]
Australia has become the complacent country. Complacent about its future economic competitiveness. Complacent about climate change. Complacent about how to navigate our future in the region given China’s rise, America’s response and a neighbourhood increasingly torn between the two. Complacent too about the gradual erosion of our democracy itself through a growing “pay for play” culture from financial donations to political parties, an increasing assault on the independence of the public service and the abuse of monopolistic media power.
“Assange had to be made to suffer horribly and in public – to be made an example of – to deter other journalists from ever following in his footsteps. He is the modern equivalent of a severed head on a pike displayed at the city gates.”
This is the time to change tack. We have spent too long defending an innocent man for leaking power’s guilty secrets. We have protested too long against their right to destroy Julian’s body so as to silence his voice. We have pleaded for too long for them to stop torturing a […]
