I'm honestly surprised it's "only" up 34%. It's the worst I've seen it at the moment, 90s skinheads levels of bad.

Australia seems completely incapable of taking ownership for the products of our society.

Can we stop referring to Russian bots and Russian trolls and start calling them what they are, Russian Intelligence Officers?

Exactly. But how do we get news agencies to change?

These rants are losing any ability to shock.

Still, high praise for Strzok.

Indeed. There is no evidence that Strzok's personal opinions had an impact on his work. I'm just wondering why the toxic Trump Republicans are ripping apart the FBI to defend Putin. That's suspicious, isn't it?

Since you’ve chosen to hang this off my comment, care to explain the “toxic Trump Republicans” phrase?

The sentiment I can agree with, the repetition looks somewhere on a scale between forced and inorganic.

When you spot a disinformation campaign, you consider all of that information worthless (edit: or at least agenda-driven) This particular OP is a well-known disinformation campaigner.

My inbox right now certainly aligns with that assertion.

No one likes her, she’s only been re-elected so many times because no serious contender ever manages to challenge her. This time it’s different. She’s not getting nearly as many endorsements—not from the state party or the unions. Kevin de Leon has experience in the CA state senate as the pro tempore. He’s not completely inexperienced.

The problem is that Western teaching methods have evolved over centuries, attempting to tune themselves to better be able to effectively teach relevant material to Western students.

That method does not seem to be working for Indigenous communities. Our ways of teaching aren't producing the results people want to see. What do we do?

We’ve had Ganma and similar style programs intermittently funded since the mid 70s.

As with so many other initiatives for indigenous communities, we know what works we just can’t get governments to commit to long term funding of those programs. It’s a problem that plagues health and mental health programs.

we know what works we just can’t get governments to commit to long term funding of those programs

Do you have any sources for the effectiveness of those programs? Do they bring these children on par with the national average?

Take a look at the Yirrkala Ganma Education Project, it’s probably the most documented. The AIFS website should get you going.

On the latter point, no. Remote rural education doesn’t for any community and certainly won’t in communities with other significant social and socioeconomic issues. But you can be effective without being a silver bullet.

Trump also said former foreign minister Boris Johnson would make "a great prime minister".

It’s a hoot; a pulpy, fiercely political and wildly silly action adventure that has traces of the Tarantino revenge fantasy Kill Bill, complete with camp villains, balletic ultraviolence and a kickarse heroine wreaking vengeance for centuries of colonial violence and oppression.

A 'hoot', writes the reviewer for Fairfax Media.

Yes indeed. A play about one ethnicity massacring another ethnicity.

Talk about progress!

It’s like they want you to think about the events on stage or something...

Watching Australia recoil at its own reflection, exploring and exploiting that, is enough material to sustain a genre right now.

Hey, maybe Breitbart are hosting it. We could link that one.

Lets assume every country adopted this stupid proposed bill. The end result would be Israeli factories/businesses, many of which are employing tens of thousands of West Bank Arabs/Palestinians, would be forced to move a few KM to other side of the 1948 cease-fire line. Because of the political situation this would effectively mean most of those non-Israelis would lose their jobs. All because useful idiots in Ireland think these Jewish towns, many of which were ethnically cleansed by Arabs leading up to the 1948 cease-fire, are viewed as illegal. Cool.

South Africa built factories in its Bantustans too.

Senate can block actions, but does the Senate also have initiative? In case of a crisis, can they deploy forces, attack countries, over the will of the Commander-in-Chief? I should think that title is there for that reason.

The war powers clause grants the power...

He can threaten, but he cannot do.

NATO is a formal treaty and US law is fully behind it. He needs the Senate to allow it; the Senate just rebuked Trump with a motion passing 97-2 for the rebuke of Trump.
