‘More must be done’ to expose how ‘deeply China has its tentacles’ in Pacific regionSky News host Peta Credlin says even though Russian President Vladimir Putin's threat of nuclear warfare is currently a main concern, Australia should be aware of what China is doing in the Indo-Pacific. Ms Credlin said a new report highlights the Chinese government's “sustained attempts to subvert the leadership” in the Solomon Islands in an attempt to build a naval base – which would be “capable of interrupting the shipping lanes between Australia and the United States”. “According to a report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, print and social media in the Solomons increasingly claims that the government's security agreement with Beijing is a necessary response to ‘colonialist bullies’,” she said. “More must be done to expose just how deeply China has its tentacles into some Pacific leaders, if we are to avoid a hostile military base on our doorstep.” Anyone asked Kermit the Frog what be thinks? The only way to prevent this was strong diplomacy. Instead we had ministers joking about islands drowning because of sea level rise.

(Weatherzone) record-breaking rain , some of the heaviest falls have been recorded in Australia's traditionally driest regions. Weatherzone reported that the outback town of Bourke in New South Wales received more than its monthly average rainfall in one day yesterday. Part of the reason why the RBA is lifting rates so quickly is because it’s trying to keep up with the US Federal Reserve’s rate rises. Storms dropped 39. Ten days ago, the magician pulled this rabbit out of the hat and – as you may dimly be aware – has since detected some kind of adverse reaction to the trick.2mm on the town yesterday, compared to its October monthly average of 26. Why? Because people overseas would suddenly feel like Australia’s goods and services were relatively cheap, so they’d try to buy more of them – and that would push prices up in Australia.3mm. You know the saying: “If you come for the king, you’d best not miss?” Well, last month Doiron took a shot at deposing charcuterie boards from their place on the millennial dinner party throne, and it seems her camera-ready blend of softened butter, herbs, zest and edible flowers managed to hit its target.
And the intense weather isn't just restricted to rain, with 400 lightning strikes recorded near the little hamlet of White Cliffs in NSW's north-west. And on the second point, curbing demand is possible in this situation, it’s just that it’s being done in a brutal way.” Righto. Weatherzone meteorologist James Rout said more rain in Australia's isolated rural areas was likely. "A number of low pressure troughs are crossing south-east (Australia), and the negative IOD and La Niña are providing abundant moisture," he said. That process is literally forcing people to give more money to their banks every month, which means they have less money to spend in other markets – which curbs demand. "There's also a large high pressure ridge extending over the Tasman Sea which seems to be slowing down the eastward progress of the systems, allowing more time for rain to fall.
