She took her time .taken her five months to call .and today she asked about our bushfires which occured last summer. how disingenuous her call she spent 9 hours on the phone with Dan Andrews and 3 minutes with Morrison... Oh my God its get better every day. At her age, she should be. Thanks to DanielAndrewsMP !!!!! He should be our PM!!!!!

Tell her to talk to Andrew and Allan. They are experts on everything. Meanwhile, regular doctors like me are using HCQ + Azithromycin and Zinc to good effect. One nursing home in NE Ohio had 30 cases - started everyone on HCQ, no deaths. Quick recovery. Why would the MSM hide this? Why would twitter block people who question the WHO? This cure

Immigration into Australia 'is a giant ponzi scheme' | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Andrew Bolt says the economy is in such trouble now that Australia “can’t afford the old idiocies of the past,” which includes the bipartisan consensus regarding a high net immigration rate.\n \n“One of those idiocies is that idea that mass immigration is of course good for us,” he said. \n\n“That we can import a quarter of a million immigrants every year and that just makes us richer”. \n\n'Of course this giant ponzi scheme makes us better off.'\n\nIt comes as Shadow Home Affairs Minister Kristina Keneally has sparked an internal party stoush by arguing Australians must get a first go at jobs as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact aspects of society. \n\nMs Keneally has written an op-ed in the Nine newspapers arguing that migration cannot remain at the same levels post-pandemic. \n\nShe said Australia could be 'harmed' by an influx of temporary workers when restrictions are eased.\n\n“We must make sure that Australians get a fair go and a first go at jobs,” Senator Keneally wrote.\n\nMr Bolt said the wrath incurred by Ms Keneally for “saying something so sane,” is she has now been “called a xenophobe and ignorant”. \n\nMr Bolt also spoke with The Australian’s Judith Sloan who said she 'didn't quite get the objection' to what Ms Keneally had said. \n\n We cant have debates without being labelled racist. NZ lowered immigration numbers years ago to protect their locals from sharply rising real estate and a dramatic shift in culture yet we are racist.. True I’ve always been told by Australians that Australians are lazy and don’t want to work. Is that why you have so many immigrant workers?

‘Australia enters the COVID-19 crisis from a place of economic strength': Cormann | Sky News AustraliaFinance Minister Mathias Cormann says he wants “to see economic restrictions eased' as soon as it is 'safe from a health point of view”. \n\nCurrent restrictions in Australia are costing $4 billion each week with one million jobs having been lost over the past five weeks across the country.\n\nMr Cormann said the government had “put measures in place to help the economy operate in a way that is COVID safe”.\n\n“In a business as usual situation it is very important that government doesn’t get in the way of individual enterprise and private sector businesses,' he told Sky News host Paul Murray.\n\nHowever, “we’re dealing with a very specific crisis caused by an external event beyond our control and these are the moments when the government has to step up … to provide a significantly enhanced safety net'. \n\nAccording to Mr Cormann, Australia is going into this crisis “in the strongest most resilient position possible” due to the Coalition government's economic management over the past few years. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia MathiasCormann Yeah, right now. Before business owners and those who’ve lost jobs, homes and families start necking themselves by the thousands. Screw thos communist BS you’re supposed to be a forward thinking government not idiot wreckers. MathiasCormann I don’t think Mathias is smoking cigars anymore... he’s moved on to marijuana!
