When Rudd and Gillard (Labor Party) were going through their games way back when, one could have been forgiven for thinking that the media were in bed with the opposition party. But now that the opposition party (National Liberal Party) is in power, we are seeing the same game played against it. The truth is that all this game playing, no matter the source, damages the country. And since this damaging game play has been going on continuously for several years now, one must ask:"Who is pulling the strings and what do they have to gain?" Why is there a constant threat to the stability of the "Office of Prime Minister?" Constantly targeting Prime Ministers would be a cost effective way of destabilizing a country - Yes?
Media control of the Australian Government
by R.P. BenDedek (12:24 PM 2/28/2015 Beijing Time)
In 2017 I think the points I made in this article are even more applicable. The amount of hot air, misrepresentation, misdirection and outright lies in the Media over the whole President Trump issue has well and truly gone beyond journalism. It has become abundantly apparent that media of all sorts are trying to bring down the US Government. Media is relying on the inability of people to actually read primary text and is instead relying upon their own ability to cause emotional reactions in less than intelligent people. It has become boring beyond belief - yes! But it has also become dangerous!
Would someone please shoot the Australian Media
As an Australian living and working in China, I can only count my blessings that I am not living and working in Australia these days. Since prior to the overthrow of the Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd by Julia Gillard, Australian politics has turned into something base and despicable.
Gillard overthrew Rudd; Rudd overthrew Gillard; Abbott overthrew Rudd at the next election, and now according to constant media speculation, someone within Abbott's government is getting ready to over throw him. Or is this all just a media con. Perhaps the problem is not party politics but Media interests.
In an (...msn.com/en-au/) article today it is reported that Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, in responding to a journalist's question about all the speculation, said:
"These are hypothetical questions and this is all based on speculation and rumour. I've not seen any source attributed to any particular member or minister. So it's hypothetical, it is speculation, I don't intend to add to it."
Party politics are a political game, and what goes on in the backrooms of political parties should be anyone's guess, but over the last couple of years in Australia, politics has been led by the Media. In a telling line from the abovementioned article, one sentence contained two extremely pertinent phrases. The first was "But reporters persisted" and the second was related to speculation that "ongoing political uncertainty in Australia would weaken" government plans. Is that second point the consequence of or purpose of Media enflamed political turmoil and speculation? In either case, the Media circus persists.
When Rudd and Gillard (Labor Party) were going through their games way back when, one could have been forgiven for thinking that the media were in bed with the opposition party. But now that the opposition party (National Liberal Party) is in power, we are seeing the same game played against it.
The truth is that all this game playing, no matter the source, damages the country. And since this damaging game play has been going on continuously for several years now, one must ask: "Who is pulling the strings and what do they have to gain?"Why is there a constant threat to the stability of the "Office of Prime Minister?" Constantly targeting Prime Ministers would be a cost effective way of destabilizing a country - Yes?
Another telling line in the article mentioned above is this:
Ms Bishop said the fresh wave of leadership speculation, brought about by reports the Prime Minister has lost the backing of key supporters, was unhelpful.
Who is doing the speculating? -- The Media! Where are the reports coming from? -- The Media! The report also quoted Ms Bishop as saying:
"There was a motion for a leadership spill. It did not succeed. The Prime Minister asked the party room to focus on the job at hand, which is governing for Australia and that is what I'm doing. I'm getting on with my job as Foreign Minister. The Prime Minister is getting on with his job as Prime Minister. We urge our colleagues to focus on the interests and the concerns of the Australian people. That's what we were elected to do."
Presuming that members of parliament are getting on with their jobs and members of the party are faithful to their party, who then is doing all the talking?
I have to wonder if it is deliberately false newspaper allegations that lead to political turmoil or if it is just party turmoil that leads to media speculation and subsequently a fanning of the flames. Who would know that there was a problem in the party if the media did not fan the flames. Is it true that 'we have a right to know?' or is that just media speak for making money at the risk of destabilizing the country. Or could it be more sinister than that?
In any case, it is the Media which controls public perception, and the media which brings the country into disrepute. To repeat Ms Bishop's statement: "I've not seen any source attributed to any particular member or minister. So it's hypothetical, it is speculation.."
And isn't this exactly what the media does best?
Would someone please shoot the Australian Media! We have enough traitors in the country already!
Politically Correct Ideologues are people who become so trapped inside fundamentalist thinking, that they lose contact with the real world and see nothing other than their ideology. In short, they are totally focussed on what is inside their own heads, which is why I constantly refer to such people as ‘sociopathic.’
If the dates calculated for Kandalanu, or the understanding of ‘the year in which there was no king’ (after Kandalanu’s death), or the understanding or interpretation of various business contracts is incorrect, then the reigns of Kandalanu, Nabopolassar and Nebuchadrezzar, from 648 BC to 587 BC will be incorrect.
It seems that the Marxists, in the pursuit of their superior ideology, not only oppress Jews, not only oppress Muslims and not only oppress women, but they welcome an immigrant influx of deeply religious Muslims. And yet, religion is anathema to Marxism. Whatever you may or may not believe, what is clear to any person with eyes to see and ears to hear, and to any person who has watched Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s video, the only way to effectively integrate Muslims into our Western non-Muslim societies, is to STOP aiding and abetting those who wish to destroy us, and START supporting those who seek to stop radical Islamic fundamentalism.
The following is a list of excerpts from 'Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story.' There are a total of 18 excerpts published here at Kingscalendar. This book will become available very soon. If you like what you see and choose to purchase this book (which no publisher will touch) you will find in it 133 links to stories about China. As the book is only available via my website which is one of those held back by Google, the book will not receive much publicity and so I would hope that you will - should you like it - recommend it to others on your various social media sites.
If you refuse to publish and refuse to reject it – then if must be inferred that you do so because your company does not have sufficient funds to follow through with the financial reimbursement if you choose to cancel the contract – or – you intend to hold me to ransom neither publishing the book nor giving me freedom to submit to another company.
The Jewish settlers of Ofra and Amona have been wondering what has happened to neighboring Arab villages such as Silwad. According to Gibor, between 80 and 90 percent of Dir Dibwan’s residents have an American citizenship. One local resident, Muhammad Manasra, who splits his life between the village and California, estimates the population in the two neighboring villages at 16,000, most of them living abroad…
In the years ahead, all conservatives everywhere absolutely MUST do two things. Firstly, they must not act like sociopathic liberal progressives, and secondly, they must do their part to maintain the freedoms inherently granted them in their Republic. The reason madness got so far in the past is that sane people kept their mouths shut!
In Book One of those travel adventures, I talk about a number of different times I traveled to Chibi Village and Puqi (Chibi City) in Hubei Province. On this page today, I have collated from the articles listed below, a few photographs which I have tried to present sequentially as a trip to Chibi Town and Chibi City/Puqi. Each has a little commentary which might only make sense if you actually read the articles or eventually buy the book.
In Exodus 14:5 however, we read that Pharaoh had to be told that the Israelites had fled, as though it was unknown to him. Furthermore, he appears confused by it, asking ‘Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?’ In Antiquities 2:15:3 [Whiston. W. (1993) The Works of Josephus. Hendrickson Publishers. Massachusetts. USA p.75] Josephus records that pharaoh ‘was mightily concerned that this (Exodus) had been procured by the magic arts.’
Our current perception of what is recorded in relation to the death of Josiah has been influenced by two very prominent things, one of which is the wording in the biblical historical narrative, and the other is ‘academic opinion’ in relation to ancient history. On this latter point it has to be reiterated that academic opinion only relies on biblical texts when there is an absence of other evidence. In fact our perceptions of this biblical event may not be correct within the true historical context.
Since 2004 he has been writing academic articles, social commentaries and photographic 'Stories from China' both here at KingsCalendar, and formerly as a contributing columnist at Magic City Morning Star News (Maine USA) where from 2009 to 2015 he was Stand-in Editor. He currently has a column at iPatriot.com and teaches English to Business English and Flight Attendant College Students in Suzhou City Jiangsu Province People's Republic of China.)
BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
