Jack the Low Information Insider

The Australian corporate media have been an arm of Government Covid propaganda these past eighteen months.  The Murdoch press has been at the forefront.  One of its prominent journalists has been the pointy end of the propaganda spear.  His name is Peter Hoysted.  He even gives himself a pseudonym.  He talks rubbish.

Australia’s Deep and Sinister Covid North

While it is difficult to know exactly what is going on in the Northern Territory, there is enough news emerging about which to be very worried.  With yet another mini-me dictator at the helm intent on pushing people around, absent any knid of serious crisis.  This article was written mainly for a British readership.

Many have written about the causes and consequences of the Covid tyranny, the "pandemia".  But we also need strategies for legitimate dissidence by the Covid sceptics and also for the Covid true believers who might, just might, be feeling a little queasy about the current direction of travel of the Covid State.

Vaccine Logic

There has never, ever been vaccine logic during the current pandemia.  There certainly isn't now.  While Victorians are grappling with new dictatorial powers seemingly about to be passed by its Parliament, the State to its immediate north has entered the vaccine twilight zone, with medical apartheid now extended indefinitely.

Heroes

Covid has thrown up heroes.  Don't expect them to be acknowledged as such by the Covid class.

Covid and Euthanasia

The NSW Parliament considers granting a right to assisted dying.  To the old and infirm.  We are killing them off already.

The Great Covid Panic

Three economists have written a cracking book on the Covid affair.  Gigi Foster is at the University of New South Wales.  She and her colleagues have sought to explain the madness of the past nearly two years.  The book should be required reading for those who value freedom and sanity.  A public policy master class.  It was an honour to review it.

I'm Double Vaccinated - Get Me Out of Here

This week saw the surreal scapegoating of a visitor to Byron Bay who was authorised to travel there and who, testing positive for Covid, "caused" a lockdown.  The town's hopes for economic recovery were crushed yet again by Macquarie St fiat.  But there is more.  The woman was ... vaccinated!

The war on the non-vaccinated is being ramped up by the day, with vitriol, discrimination and malice.  But not with science.  There is no medical justification for this evil being perpetrated on our fellow citizens by governments in Australia, with a merry band of Pharma companies, corporates, bureaucrats, journalists and low information bloggers leading the charge.  Some of these claim, erroneously, to be "liberal".  It is a time of shame.

Losing Our Religion

Will Covid kill the Church?  It is a question that demands our attention.
