Megan Rapinoe’s missed shot costs the USA the World Cup joining other losers from the week including Shane Drumgold, the Voice, Pfizer and all Republican challengers to Donald Trump. Plus we cover the winners on Tim’s News Explosion.
Many Americans have cheered Megan Rapinoe’s penalty miss against Sweden knocking the USA out of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Rapinoe is a Black Lives Matter activist who takes the knee during the US national anthem. In 2017 the Women’s national team lost to FC Dallas under 15 boys’ team yet they demanded equal pay with the men’s team.
The report into the failed prosecution of Bruce Lehrmann in the ACT by inquiry chair Walter Sofronoff KC found the ACT DPP Shane Drumgold “knowingly lied” to the ACT Supreme Court, engaged in “grossly unethical” conduct, was found guilty of a “serious breach of duty” made false representations to Chief Justice Lucy McCallum, and failed the “golden rule” of not disclosing a key evidence report to the defence. Drumgold resigned on the weekend. The Australian newspaper first leaked it before it was published by the ACT Government today which now wants to investigate Sofronoff for providing embargoed copies to two media outlets.
The latest poll on the Aboriginal voice referendum has the No vote leading 56-44 nationally with No now ahead in all states. Anthony Albanese said at the $ 2,750-a-head Garma festival there would be no delay to the referendum. An ABC Insiders panellist falsely attributed AI-generated ads of Aboriginals speaking against the voice to the official No campaign. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is 26 pages, not the 1-page document that Albanese has claimed. Western Australia Premier Roger Cook is planning to repeal his government’s recently enacted Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Laws despite labelling opponents racist.
As part of the truth and treaty elements of the Uluru Statement, Dan Andrews will be giving all new government schools Indigenous names and a new settlement agreement with local Indigenous tribes includes a list of proposals that would hand sweeping powers overruling 10 local government councils. Dan has forced the resignation of Will Fowles as a member of the Labor Party room and referred him to the police over an alleged sexual assault.
National Socialist Network members Thomas Sewell and Jacob Hersant will each plead guilty to a charge of violent disorder over an alleged confrontation with Antifa members who followed the group into Victoria’s Cathedral Ranges in May 2021. The Age newspaper reported on Thomas Sewell saying Heil Ben Roberts-Smith and down with its reporter Nick McKenzie during his Nationalist Seminar speech.
The Australian Federal Police revealed they have arrested a 45-year-old Gold Coast man on 1623 charges over the alleged sexual assault of 91 young girls at centres across Brisbane and Sydney over the span of 15 years. A Current Affair interviewed a former childcare manager Yolanda Burucki about how this monster used the current system of rules to avoid detection.
Local Pfizer representatives appeared before the Australian Senate and denied they pushed for vaccine mandates or that myocarditis is a major side effect of their product.
Donald Trump has been indicted for a third time, the second indictment by Special Counsel Jack Smith accusing Trump of conspiring to defraud the United States and to obstruct an official proceeding on January 6 2021. Mike Pence tweeted that no man who puts himself above the Constitution should be President. Trump responded that “Liddle Mike Pence” had gone over to the “dark side”. Republican candidate Ron DeSantis will debate Californian Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom. DeSantis recently promised he would go after foreign countries that he deems are anti-Semitic.
A riot broke out in New York City which police and Mayor Eric Adams blamed on Twitch streamer Kai Cenat after promising a giveaway at Union Square. Police charged him with inciting a riot and promoting an unlawful gathering. Black Alamba woman Carlee Russell has admitted to faking her own kidnapping which she claimed was committed by an orange-haired white man.
In New Zealand, the man who led the running of Kellie-Jay Keen out of the country claims TERFs broke into his home in a hate crime.
