I share my thoughts on May 18, 2019 Australian Federal Election and the shocking result, what it means, why I think we have the neoconservative Morrison government we have. I discuss the Australian Labor party and what I think are its ongoing failings. I talk about Australian electoral politics, how neoliberalism and neoconservatism is rife. What is the remedy for the move further and further to the right? and more.

"Freed eight days ago, Manning was subpoenaed before a new grand jury investigating Assange. Despite grave danger to her health, she refused to testify, saying she would rather die in prison than change her principles"
"Chelsea Manning was not only put back in jail, but Judge Anthony Trenga ordered her to be fined $500 every day she is in custody after 30 days and $1,000 every day she is in custody after 60 days. This is unprecedented." https://www.sparrowmedia.net/2019/05/statement-from-chelsea-mannings-lawyers-regarding-chelsea-being-remanded-into-custody/

A preface sharing my thoughts about this recent action by "Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) members Ajamu Baraka, Netfa Freeman and Paul Pumphrey physically struggling with neo-fascists who were trying to prevent food the Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. brought to the Venezuelan Embassy Protection Collective. Four bags of food and power supplies were delivered, only because police did not prevent it as they usually do by blocking deliveries or cutting rope. See the whole 9-minute struggle. After watching, mobilize for this Saturday's rally at the embassy by organizing a car pool as NJ Anti War Agenda is doing:" https://www.facebook.com/events/668818256898123

Mnar Muhawesh: "The Trump administration is violating international law and besieging American journalists in plain sight! I will be releasing an official statement today demanding an end to the power blackout, food to be allowed in and the police/secret service be held accountable for besieging and allowing for the assault against our journalist Alex Rubinstein, and Grayzone reporter Anya Parampil at the Venezuela Embassy in Washington DC. This is a clear violation of press freedom and international law. Stay tuned.."

Report: US Sanctions Have Cost 40,000 Venezuelan Lives. The 27-page paper was authored by economists Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs, who determined that sanctions have “inflicted very serious harm to human life” in Venezuela. ... They also contend that sanctions have also stunted any possibilities of tackling hyperinflation and Venezuela's severe economic crisis.

The Failed US backed coup in Venezuela. The US empire will not give up until they have crushed the Bolivarian revolution, and have gotten access to the oil which they have publicly spoken about. Now that the military coup has failed, will Erik Prince and 5000 mercenaries conduct a military coup of their own?

Federal Australian Green Party Calls for Protecting the very Industry causing the Climate Crisis
The Federal Australian Green Party states in their election ads that they will protect the dairy industry from the climate crisis. The dairy industry and the "beef" industry and other forms of animal agriculture, are the very industries that are the major driver of climate crisis. The ad states that the Greens will address the climate crisis with renewables to protect the dairy industry and other businesses. The irony. Surely we can do better than this?

Trish here: Looking through rose-coloured glasses today ;-) I talk about the deliberate uniform mainstream media dehumanisation of Julian Assange which is just another clear indication that the 4th Estate is Dead. I speak about this and also about the poverty draft, and our attitudes which keep us in a state of perpetual war.
