The Biden Administration has finally achieved deflation… of a Chinese spy weather balloon. There’s been a lot of political hot air about why it wasn’t shot down sooner. Meanwhile, the ABC and Lidia Thorpe reach new lows. That plus the other highs and lows on Tim’s News Explosion.

Lidia Thorpe today resigned from the Australian Greens. She is demanding a treaty before the voice referendum is held and announced she would now be speaking for the Blak Sovereign Movement. She is now a Senate squatter given she was elected as Green in Victoria for a 6-year term but will now be an Independent.

The ABC has sort of apologised for a news report about an Alice Springs crime town hall meeting implying that it was about white supremacy. The ABC has not apologised for comments on The Drum by Nareen Young who has said previously only Anglo men eat white bread, she compared the Alice Springs meeting to the film Missippi Burning about KKK murders. Apparently, white people are not allowed to gather to talk about how to keep their town safe. The NT Chief Minister Natasha Fyles announced she will only restore Grog bans in Central Australians if local residents vote for them. The Reserve Bank of Australia announced King Charles will not be on the $5 instead images from First Nations history and culture will be.

In the lead-up to the NSW State Election, the ABC aired a Louise Milligan 4 Corners report on Opus Day schools the Catholic sect that Premier Dom Perrottet’s family is a part of. The next ClubsNSW CEO Josh Landis was sacked for claiming that Perrottet was acting on his Catholic gut in pushing for cashless gaming machines. The Perrottet Liberal Government is trailing the Labor Opposition led by Chris Minns 44-56. Perrottet signed the National Cabinet Statement of Intent on the Voice without consulting his Cabinet colleagues.

LGBT protestors picketed George Pell’s Funeral at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney chanting Pell go to hell. The Chaser tried to drop off a coffin full of child sex abuse evidence to be buried. Will any of them be charged with disturbing religious worship?

Teal Independent Monique Ryan has been taken to court by her Chief of Staff lesbian activist Sally Rugg who’s accused Ryan of asking her to work unreasonable hours. The Teals and the Liberals were at Melbourne’s Midsumma Pride March. It was led by Premier Dan Andrews who received an uncomfortable question from a member of the public about vaccine mandates. The NSW Government funding is the upcoming LGBT World Pride.

In health news, the Cochrane review into face masks during the covid era has concluded that they didn’t work to stop the spread of covid infections. A South Korean study found ugly people were more likely to wear masks. The BBC has warned bird flu could be the next pandemic as it has been transmitting from birds to mammals.

The Chinese spy weather balloon was allowed to fly over the US for days until it was shot down by a military jet. It has been claimed it couldn’t be shot down over land because of the risk of debris. The fake news media have attempted to claim Chinese spy balloons flew over the US under the Trump Administration.
