Amanda Stoker, dominionist bigot

June 27, 2020 - 14:46 -- Admin

Amanda Stoker is a Liberal National Party
senator from Queensland. In 2009, she lost preselection to Mark
Robinson for the state seat of Cleveland1. Mark Robinson has turned
out to be a hopeless local member2,3, which may say something about
Stoker. Despite this disappointment, she ran for the Senate at the 2013 federal
election, but failed to get elected. However, in 2018, Stoker was appointed to

Sky News is the
Murdoch-owned zoo of right wing nut jobs. The main aim of their world view is
to keep ultraconservative governments in place where Murdoch has media

philosophy is all about.”1

Fiona Kotvojs has been
selected as the Liberal candidate for the July 4 Eden-Monaro by-election recently
vacated by Mike Kelly, who has resigned from parliament. Kotvojs lives at
Dignams Creek1, which is about 15 km southwest of Narooma and 10 km
northeast of Cobargo, and Kotvojs is a member of the Cobargo Rural Fire Service
brigade. The odd thing about the launch of Kotvojs’ campaign was that it was in

As readers of this
blog can attest there is an enormous number of things I worry about when the nations
of the world are being shaken to their core by a rampant virus for which there
