  1. In their busy schedule of promoting fear of Virus amongst the Australian people the mainstream Media has, once again, promoted lies. The ABC and CH 9 are just two of these assassins of truth.
    The Australian and Victorian Governments have selected this garbage as fact and with the support of their highly paid medical maestro’s have chosen to propagate this lie to support the Virus fear campaign that has being orchestrated against the Australian people.
    We need to do some culling and soon!
