It is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and the myths that surround it

ANOTHER HIROSHIMA IS COMING UNLESS WE STOP IT NOW This is a woman burned into the steps of a bank in Hiroshima by the atomic bomb on 6 August 1945. Remember this when you don't speak up against the fanatic Pompeo's lies about China, now leading us to war

Having reported from five places on Earth devastated by nuclear weapons, I regard the provoking of a war with China as a high crime. Those who beat the media's war drums with myths and lies insult the memory of Hiroshima, 75 years ago this week.

No matter the spin on their shameful trip to Washington, the two Australian ministers summoned to appease the war plans of Trump's fascist holy roller Mike Pompeo have brought a war with China closer. Watch my film, free of charge, on this link:

Under cover of Covid, 400 police in Sydney intimidated and fined a handful of peaceful anti-racist protesters. Meanwhile, Crikey reports dozens of anti-China secessionists allowed to march outside the Chinese consulate - no police intimidation, no fines.

Australia's Indigenous people will tell you what happens when they are "detained" by police. Today, a brave band of protesters led by the ever-principled Paddy Gibson were harassed and fined by police as they mourned the death of David Dungay, who also pleaded, "I can't breathe".

Australia's day of shame. Two deferential Australian ministers are in Washington, summoned by the fanatic, Mike Pompeo, to plan a war with China. Nothing less. Watch my film, The Coming War on China, on my website, free of charge. This is the link:

We have a serious problem in NSW with a highly politicised police force led by a police commissioner who aggressively engages in politics with a right wing agenda. As ⁩a Greens MP I call this out in Parliament and the media. Where are the other voices?

Australia has among the highest rates of black incarceration in the world. The voices of protest must be heard, not silenced by politically motivated false claims. Demand an end to the virus of racism in Australia. Sydney; Tuesday, 28 July.

Mike Pompeo, Hermann Goering lookalike and true 21st century fascist, wants a war with China: nothing less. My film, The Coming War on China, broadcast in 2016, is a warning to all of us. It can be viewed on my website, free of charge. This is the link:

To quote, without verifiable evidence, "western intelligence sources" is never journalism; it is almost always propaganda. I learned that as a reporter. The cold war drum beat of the BBC and others is leading us to a world war.

With Anglo-American propaganda now rampant, the truth about the overthrow of Gough Whitlam's reformist govt in 1975 provides a rare glimpse of how criminal power works. This piece by Guy Rundle breaks the current silence.

The Queen's private Secretary, Sir Martin Charteris, was up to his neck in the coup against the reformist Australian govt of Gough Whitlam. But Charteris did not act alone. This was an Anglo-American coup, and no amount of silence will change that truth.

In September, in a courtroom in London, Julian will be fighting for his life. His 'crime' is to have revealed the virus of America's war crimes. Please read this fine account of a case so lawless and corrupt it 'damages the soul' ....

Well done Jenny Hocking on forcing the release of royal letters on the dismissal of Australia's only independent government. But what was done in the Queen's name remains an unmentionable crime executed by the same sinister forces that hold sway today.

The ruthless sell-off of Britain's National Health Service during Covid by the Boris Johnson govt is a crime against humanity. Read this shocking, moving story about Wendy Peake then go to the second link to donate to save Wendy.

The poorest, most deprived people are imprisoned by 500 thuggish armed police and denied proper food, care, respect. Bushfire victims are abandoned with only the memory of their glad-handing, cynical prime minister. This is Australia the world doesn't see.

Scott Morrison, the marketing man and Trump courtier now anointed Australia's "war leader" (in the coming war on China) is also part of the Hong Kong "refuge" fraud.

Visionary leaders Johnson and Trump are making [dodgy] "refuge" offers to Hongkongers they call "pro democracy". No such refuge is on offer to the millions of Libyans, Iraqis, Palestinians whose societies have been subverted or destroyed by the West.
