Edward Kent, Suffolk Park

First, it was ‘Global Cooling’. Then, it was ‘Global Warming’. Finally, it has been the most stupid, simplistic and scientifically tenuous proposal of all – ‘Climate Change’. So, how many of you weak, febrile-minded, goody-two-shoes, righteous, world-saving ‘climate crusaders’ have just spent the better part of two years traipsing about in a little mask, aiding and abetting the fraud we were besieged with, of lethal contagion, doing QR Code sign-in like lost puppies and dutifully getting all your ‘jabs’?

Well, now that we have all been through two years of a pharmaceutically coerced martial law fire-drill, complete with all the constitutional trammelling politicians of every stripe and jurisdiction could muster, plus ‘four billion out the door’ to destroy small business, communities and families, our global political cuckolds are pulling lint from their pockets in the wake of the most massive flood disaster in 50 years.

At precisely the moment the ABC/Sky News complex is so obviously helping the political class bury COVID and polish a turd for their upcoming election farce, promoting red-herring rubbish about tragedy in Ukraine, you lot decide now would be the opportune time to assist the political class in their criminal negligence assisting the narrative change, cashing-in, exploiting, perverting and reducing the widespread flood destruction down to bogus climate politics, while consigning the tens-of-thousands of home-grown internally displaced refugees to the scrap heap of inconvenient truth? How dare you!

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. I’m sorry Edward, but what planet are you on? Is this another satirical letter of such an absurd nature that it is a bit scary. I hope you better respect the community than is indicated by this letter.

    • Respect has to be earned. Your comment makes his point.
      Do you seriously not understand how we have come to the conclusions we have? These are not uncommon positions.
      When you call our world view satire then demand respect, while not bothering to understand so that you could at least engage in debate, well …. How dare you

  2. On matters of Ukraine read Jacques Baud (Former Colonel of the General Staff and former member of Swiss strategic intelligence) published 14th and 28th March 2022 at French Center for Intelligence Research (cf2r.org) and not the slop dished up by the ABC.

  3. Why did The Echo choose to publish this? You have an editing role. Virtually every part of this letter is provably misinformation.

    • ChrisR, did you miss information?

      “pharmaceutically coerced martial law” – most global governments that are heavily influenced by the WEF, WHO and the UN, and funded (also known as political donations) by big pharma, acted in lock-step. Pharma gets immunity from and legal liability whatsoever and their contracts with Govt are extremely secretive, for our health of course.

      “constitutional trammelling politicians” – Govt over-reach has been a thing, courts have begun to confirm same albeit very slowly.

      “consigning the tens-of-thousands of home-grown internally displaced refugees to the scrap heap of inconvenient truth” – maybe ask a few of the thousands of locals just on the Northern Rivers who have been displaced by recent flooding if this is true

      Imagine if others you didn’t agree with, took your position and called for your opinions to be edited or not published?

      Swallowing a mass of re-assuring lies can be very comforting for most…… much easier than the inconvenient truth provided by a few.

  4. Ah the trifecta: Climatology, Covid and Ukraine v Russia. Tell me, is it the same forces behind all these scams? Got to hand it to them, that’s some conspiracy!

    • I could imagine Liz in 1920s Chicago saying “The prostitution, drugs, alcohol, gambling, protection rackets. Tell me, is it the same forces behind all these scams? that’s some conspiracy!”
      Well it’s well known now that J Edgar Hoover was being black mailed which is why the FBI would say the Italian Mafia didn’t exist. Believing in the Mafia made you a conspiracy terrorist back then. And a racist.
      When criminals organisations figure out they can get away with stuff, they do more stuff and bigger stuff until everyone wises up, usually just after everything falls down.
      The last act of any government is to loot the treasury and the people.
      Your living at the end of your empire. If you trust the system, then you obviously failed history class.

      • Not a good analogy I’d suggest. There are clear relationships between the areas of vice you list here. And you’re talking about Chicago not the international cooperation that’s mooted here.

        Sure it’s POSSIBLE the same forces are behind all these “scams”, but how probable? And each group of internationally noted authorities, amongst whom cooperation would be needed adds improbability. Enough improbability to suggest to me that I’d like a little more evidence than social-media-perpetuated theories.

        What “system” do you feel I have absolute trust in? Such vague imprecise terminology is not useful when discussing this scale of organisation. History is about more than drawing selective examples to drive wild generalisations.

        Just in relation to a discussion elsewhere on these pages, your uses of “your” – in your sentence, “ Your living at the end of your empire” – are not interchangeable. In the first example you are using a contraction of “you are” so that the accepted written manifestation is “you’re” with an apostrophe to denote the excised letter “a”. The second example denotes possession as in “my empire” and is correct. Just to assist your home schooling.

        I don’t get that fussed about the pedantry really – we all knew what you meant and usage will see the distinctions disappear no doubt. I’d just hate your pupils to feel they didn’t receive the highest standards at the time.

        • Does it require your freedom to be reduced?
          Does it require you to be taxed?
          Does it make large corporations richer?
          Does the media smear dissenters?
          Have there been simulations run by think tanks about it?
          Can you only see it or it’s effects through a screen?
          Does it make you feel like treating a group of people differently?

  5. Yes Ruda, I have read Jacques Baud. It’s a case of rolling the dice from
    the bottom to the top. Still, as he’s said ‘the problem is not so much to
    know who is right in this [or any] conflict but to question the way our
    leaders make their decisions’. Many are just ‘loopy’. However, it’s the
    killing-control that is sick without question.
