Reporting on asylum seekers is “advocacy parading as journalism”

Looks like Australia has the same problems with their Media Party as we have with ours.

Now the ABC has been caught making up claims about an imaginary 5 year old refugee.

The ABC has admitted to an “error” in a story that claimed a five-year-old raped at Nauru was slated to return to the island and face his attacker, after immigration officials on Monday labelled the report a “figment”.

The report on ABC’s 7.30 program this month said paediatricians had detailed their concerns about the child. It came on the eve of a High Court ruling that ultimately found the government’s offshore detention network was lawful.

An error? You mean they lied?   Read more »

Aussies whinging like Poms over cricket loss

The Aussies are sounding more and more like whinging Poms with their weapons-grade whining over the latest cricket loss.

Brendon McCullum’s hypocrisy and “mob rule” by a “rabid” crowd combined to bring Australia down at Seddon Park, according to Australian media as they reacted to the Matt Henry catching controversy.

“McCullum’s (international) ODI swansong will be remembered for the bizarre wicket of Marsh, which will further raise doubt in the Australian dressing room over the Black Caps’ status as the modern day torchbearers for sportsmanship,” the Sydney Morning Herald’s Andrew Wu wrote.

Wu reported there were “…heated scenes between the two teams with claims Matthew Wade had called Grant Elliott a “f****** coward” for sledging an angry Marsh as he left. Marsh then appeared to yell “f****** bullshit” as he walked off the field despite a consolatory tap from McCullum.”   Read more »

German spy agency knows that refugees contain Daesh infiltrators

Again, I told you so.

The Krauts have a big problem and it’s one they were warned about…terrorists infiltrating refugees.

Germany’s secret service has received more than 100 tip-offs that ISIS militants are hiding out among asylum seekers, it was reported today.

The head of the domestic intelligence agency (BfV), Hans-Georg Maassen, mentioned the figure at a discussion in the Interior Ministry, according to local media.

It comes a day after police conducted raids on suspected Islamist militants at locations across the country, including two refugee centres.

But Mr Maassen also said that among those tip-offs there were some cases of untruthful defamation, the Berliner Zeitung newspaper reported, without citing sources.

The BfV was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Reuters news agency.   Read more »

Will Zika kill the Olympics? Can it be moved?

Could the Olympics be in trouble because of the Zika virus?

The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has told sports federations that athletes and staff concerned for their health over the Zika virus should consider not going to the Olympic Games in August in Rio de Janeiro.

The message was delivered in a conference call involving USOC officials and leaders of US sport federations in late January, according to two people who participated in the hook-up.

Federations were told no one should go to Brazil “if they don’t feel comfortable going — bottom line”, said Donald Anthony, president and board chairman of USA Fencing.

The USOC’s briefing to sport federations is the latest sign Olympics officials are taking the Zika threat to the Rio Games seriously, and acknowledges at least some athletes and support staff could face a tough decision over whether to attend.   Read more »

America fails to learn from Europe and imports rampant rape and crime to Texas

They say history always repeats itself and unfortunately it does. Despite there being clear and violent evidence of the problems associated with Muslim refugees, America has ignored what is happening in Europe and has imported rampant crime and rape to its own shores. Australia is not far behind and New Zealand has already cracked open the door.

It is not as though they can claim ignorance. They can’t say, “We had no idea this would happen.” The evidence is there, the statistics are there, and the violence the crime and the rape is clearly evident. Yet America, Australia and New Zealand seem determined to head down the same suicidal path as Europe.

The rape and violence crisis attributed to the influx of “refugees” may not be a problem exclusive to European countries. According to at least one woman, it’s already started in the U.S.

Karen Sherman recently moved to Missoula, Montana, and stood in front of the local courthouse Monday to warn residents about the “civil unrest” they might be facing should the Obama administration’s plans to plant foreign migrants in the town go through, WND reported.

More than 120 protesters gathered to hear Sherman’s account of what happened in her former hometown of Amarillo, Texas.

“Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” Sherman said. She claimed the refugees have been given preferential treatment ahead of Americans to get benefits. “Now they’re expecting us to give them cars,” she said.    Read more »

Onya Australia: tells asylum seekers to go die in their own country

The Aussies are taking a tough line on asylum seekers – ratbags trying to jump the queue to enter Australia- by wanting to deport them despite terminal illnesses.

Some of the 267 asylum seekers Australia wants to deport to an offshore immigration centre following a court ruling are suffering from cancer and other terminal illnesses, a senior government official said on Monday.

Australia’s High Court last week upheld the government’s right to deport detained asylum seekers to the tiny South Pacific island of Nauru, about 3000km northeast of Australia.

The decision provoked criticism from the United Nations and sparked protest, with church leaders offering asylum seekers sanctuary.

The centre has been widely criticised for harsh conditions and reports of systemic child abuse and sexual assault.

Some deportations could begin within days, but others would have to be dealt with in a staged fashion, because of the illnesses, said Michael Pezzullo, secretary of the department of immigration and border protection.   Read more »

Twitter users don’t want anything changed: please keep running it at a loss

Most Twitter enthusiasts are actually the major reason why the platform is dying. ..that and the fact it doesn’t make any money.

It is full of bullies and nasty people, mostly left wing, all claiming outrage on an almost daily basis on the cause of the day.

Now they are upset that Twitter is wanting to make changes and they are outraged at the suggestion.

The hashtag #RIPTwitter became the top trending US item on Twitter after a report from BuzzFeed said the company is planning to change how it displays users’ tweets.

The BuzzFeed report, which went live on Friday night and did not disclose the source of its information, said the social media platform will reorder tweets to prioritize those it believes more users will want to see. Currently, Twitter arranges tweets in chronological order.

The response to the news on Twitter was overwhelmingly negative, with the hashtag #RIPTwitter suggesting many users of the micro-blogging site believe the changes would mean the death of the company.

Many users were upset that tweets from accounts with fewer followers could possibly be suppressed under the new system. Others complained that the changes would make Twitter too much like Facebook, which arranges content through the use of an algorithm.   Read more »

One in four Germans happy to shoot illegals at the border

The face of "far right" politics in Germany

The face of “far right” politics in Germany

If it’s one in four today, it will be two in four later this year.

The Alternative for Germany (AFD) party leader Frauke Petry caused a storm a week ago when she advocated the right of border police to gun down migrants. But her comments have struck a nerve in a country being pushed to the brink by the crisis with 29 per cent of respondents in a weekend poll backing her extremist plan. Read more »
