More Media Manipulation

Jul 17, 2014

One could rightly ask: Why bother doing media interviews if you know they are going to deceptively distort and twist your words to push their own agenda? Good question. It sure does happen – and often. But not always thankfully.

And They Call This Research?

Jul 9, 2014

OK, another set of banner front-page headlines telling us that children do just peachy keen in homosexual households. Yep, it must be some rock-solid research there. After all, the mainstream media has run with it, and the homosexual activists are

“Moderate” Muslims and Western Dupes

Jun 25, 2014

The ongoing saga of radical Islamist Uthman Badar continues to make the news. And as to be expected, the only thing more repulsive than the man himself are all the Western dhimmis who are falling over themselves to defend the

More Mental and Moral Meltdowns

Jun 11, 2014

The ABC, Q&A, and Stalinism

This Is How They Operate

Mar 6, 2014

With over 25 years involved in debates with all the usual suspects, especially in the mainstream media, I have long ago gotten a pretty good understanding of how the other side operates. And I can tell you that it just

Climate Capers and Inconvenient Truths

Privatise the ABC

Nov 5, 2013

“Our” ABC is nothing of the sort. Sure, we are all forced to fund it through our hard-earned tax dollars, but it is certainly not mine, or that of most Australians. It does not reflect the whole of Australia, but

Our ABC Lie Makers

Nov 2, 2013

So are you aware of the fact that your tax dollars are going to pay the PC zombies to lie publicly, and promote the agenda of the homosexual activists? The recently established ABC FactCheck unit is anything but. It would

On the Situation in Egypt

Aug 19, 2013

Most people in the West have no idea what is really happening in Egypt right now, because the mainstream media is not doing its job properly. It is derelict in its duties, and most of what you hear about the

A Tale of Two Women – of Faith

Jul 15, 2013

Faith and the mainstream media do not exactly mix. About the only time you see the two going together is when the latter is seeking to do a hatchet job on the former. The MSM is overwhelmingly comprised of secular

We’re Not Allowed To Talk About This

Jun 17, 2013

About what? And why can’t we discuss it? The “what” concerns a number of violent and ugly attacks taking place around the world. People are being raped, assaulted and killed, religious buildings are being laid waste, and we are barely

Debate ABC Style

May 28, 2013

If there ever was a reason to immediately halt taxpayer funding of “our” ABC, it was last night’s edition of Q&A. Of course just about every episode of this show for the past five years has been reason enough
