Vote to Keep Our Politicians (Safe) Behind Bars

The temporary fence before the real “wall” is built

by Dee McLachlan

As usual, the government is tight lipped and secretive — this time about a fence to keep them “safe.”

A security fence across the lawns of Parliament House will be under construction within weeks, and is the result of a September 2014 security review — prompted by the perceived terrorist threats in Australia. The attacks at the Canadian Parliament in October 2014, and the recent London’s Westminster episode has politicians worried — so many are happy with the 2.6 metre (nearly 9 feet) fence that will soon insulate them from the dangers of the outside world.

“Keeping You Safe” From Bombs (on Planes)

Keeping us safe in the air. The false alarm bomb scare on the Virgin Airways flight to Albury

by Dee McLachlan

It’s been a busy time for bombs, planes and terror — as Dr Day had predicted in his ‘Everything Is In Place And Nobody Can Stop Us Now’ lecture, in 1969:

“Terrorism would be used widely in Europe and in other parts of the world… and just a little bit of terrorism would help convince Americans that the world is indeed a dangerous place, or can be if we don’t relinquish control to the proper authorities.” [Read more…]

Uncle Sam Wants Mary

by Dee McLachlan

While Mary Maxwell makes her way around Alabama trying to get voted into the US Senate, she has not gone unnoticed.

She wrote to me yesterday saying that she had refused an interview request to be on CNN. Pity. I was hoping to catch her on the mainstream news — giving them a go. [Read more…]

The Goat on Parliament House — Is it Munching Our Politicians?

The goat has allegedly been a powerful symbol for the occult.

Well again, Kevin Woodman’s “google-eye” spotted a goat on the top of the parliament buildings in Canberra.  [Read more…]

Gumshoe News Gets a Message From The Queen

By Dee Mclachlan

I was very fortunate in getting Her Majesty on the phone for a few minutes to send a Christmas message to Gumshoe News followers and Australia. She and Prince Philip had cancelled their usual train trip to Sandringham due to feeling a little under the weather, so she had a few minutes spare to send a message to her loyal subjects Down Under.

 

Susan Sarandon on Big Banks, Voting, and Water

You may have seen the famous Ridley Scott movie, Thelma and Louise. At the end of the film the characters, played by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, escape from the law by driving off a cliff a high speed.

Well maybe Americans feel like they are watching a version of Thelma and Louise as their election unfolds — hoping that Hillary might drive over a cliff to escape from the law (which I doubt). At least high profile actors like Sarandon are speaking out against the big banks and the media brain washing. Here she talks to the BBC. [Read more…]

Trump Might Adopt Many Canberra Politicians If He’s President

by Dee McLachlan

The idea that Donald Trump might become President of the United States frightens most Australians.

I was at a script meeting last week, and during a brief segue from our fictional story, someone mentioned Trump. When asked, I suggested that both Presidential candidates were a poor choice, but I’d reluctantly tick “Trump.” I was figuratively shown the door in no uncertain terms. [Read more…]

A Sneak Peek at the Planning of a 1996 Massacre (Satire)

 boardroom-2

by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

How did Australia get to where she is today?  I’ll play-act three scenes here of some 1990s “planning meetings.” The setting for this is a foreign land. I’ll pretend I am the boss, giving out assignments for an event to take place in Port Arthur, Tasmania in 1996.

1990: “Have a Look at Australia”

Men, we need you to go down there and pick a spot where we can do a disaster. There was already a rehearsal in Melbourne in 1987, so the people have an idea of what these things look like.  Aussies can be a bit hard to arouse. So we’ll try for 50 deaths all on one day in a dramatic setting. [Read more…]

Malcolmus Maximus to Rival Khufu

All right it’s out: Malcolm will be constructing a pyramid for himself, the envy of Khufu.

Now that he can sign off on behalf of the people of Australia, it will all come together faster. But then it will be a double because: Lady Lucille, Princess of Point Piper, Baroness of Wentworth, and Consort to Pharaoh Malcolmus Maximus The First, would not approve otherwise. [Read more…]
