I started writing this back in August. I’ve long believed that Trump has been part of a Russian ploy, even if he knows it, or not. Tinfoil hats at the ready!
Current affairs this week: escalation in the Crimean peninsula, a racially motivated schoolyard assault, student protest against government climate change inaction, and further erosion for the Libs.
Just in time for the Helinski summit, a wave of anti-Russian sentiment has made it to the front pages. It’s as obvious as it is lazy.
A hideous aspect of endless war is the fact that we’ve got comfortable with it. I say it’s time we normalise the opposite.
Trump’s escalations against Russia might bristle, but it’s nothing new. In fact, it long predates the man.
Well, it was a week of negatives. Trump bombed Syria and Yassmin Abdel-Magied was kicked out of the US. But, one man went to extreme lengths to exhibit his love for Taylor Swift, and that’s something, right?
What a week it has been. old enemies have kicked off fresh hostilities, Peter Dutton hit both a new high and a new low, and one man took a train ride he’ll never forget.
We never set out to be our parents, but whether we want to admit it or not, even the most notable of liberal minds are now dangerously close to Pa’s conservatism.
Despite the generally held view that a war in Europe is a thing of the past, the truth is that Russia has quietly steered us towards the next one.
Welcome back to another week of your life that you won’t be getting back. But don’t think about that, North Korea has launched warheads over Japan.
As the war in Syria becomes all the more serious, it’s easy to blame Donald Trump. However, we’d be wrong in doing so.
Donald Trump’s links to Russia make for a topic that won’t go away. However, the true source of these rumours is something else altogether.
We’ve had a rat attempt to bring down the Trump administration, Turnbull lose 18C but gain Nick Xenophon and the world trying to con people on a very obvious day. What a week.
Yes, we all cheered when one of the Trumps handed in his resignation, but the manner of Michael Flynn’s exit speaks of a rather bleak, and easy to imagine future.
One week closer to Trump, and seemingly the edge of reason. The week that flew by also featured Pauline cleaning house and a radical new way to love your job. Don’t ask…
Will Trump be able to build foreign relationships with his unique brand of tweetplomacy? Or will this approach lead to something darker? Or not?
Accidental home ownership, a village missing its idiot, Centrelink on how to deal with people in crisis and an intercontinental Presidential romance. So 2017 is off to a great start?
While the west turns more nationalist, Right-wing and nativist, Putin is viewing a better seat at the table. After 20 years in the shadows, Russia once again takes center-stage, fanning the flames of a new global ideology.
Happy 2017! Just a quick reminder, 2016 wasn’t that far away, and despite the ‘new year, new me’ euphoria, here’s a heavy grain of salt to add to your hangover. Sorry.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. For those looking for a dash of reality on the grandest day of all, here’s what happened in the week that was.
Enough, already! This week saw the reemergence of blame in the results in the US election, the return of a 1990’s approach to stop piracy and the promotion of idiots on YouTube.
In 2016 Australia, fear is not an emotion, but rather an idea. As my father taught me, Europe looks to the next war, as the past frequently shadows the present.
