    Prime Minister Scott Morrison has warned that the Australian government as well as private organisations have been subject to sustained cyber-attacks from a “sophisticated state-based cyber actor” on Friday morning during a news conference.The announcement comes just days after Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne called out online disinformation campaigns from China and Russia.Scott Morrison read a prepared statement to reporters in Canberra saying that the activity was targeting “Australian organisations across a range of sectors, including all levels of government, industry, political organisations, education, health, essential service providers, and operators of other critical infrastructure.”“We know it is a sophisticated...
  • No known animal host and 'almost perfect' human adaption: Top Australian vaccine scientist reveals how COVID-19's unique structure means it's either man-made - or a 'complete fluke' of nature

    Coronavirus is so 'perfectly adapted' to infect humans that the possibility it was made in a Chinese lab can't be ignored, Australian vaccine researchers conclude. Professor Nikolai Petrovsky said the virus was better at attaching itself to human cells than to any other animal, explaining why it has infected five million people. The vaccine expert warned the investigation into where COVID-19 started, as proposed by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, was as a result urgently needed and should have begun months ago. The startling results of his research were first revealed by the Mail on Sunday on the weekend - and...
  • Australia's PM says it's 'unfathomable' that WHO supports reopening of wet markets

    Australia’s prime minister is blasting the World Health Organization Tuesday over its stance on wet markets, calling it “unfathomable” that the U.N. agency supports them reopening in China. Scott Morrison made the comment just days after a bipartisan group of congressional lawmakers urged WHO to shut down all wet markets globally. The markets recently began opening their doors again in Chinese cities like Wuhan, which have lifted their coronavirus lockdowns. “I think that’s unfathomable, frankly. We need to protect the world against potential sources of outbreaks of these types of viruses,” Morrison told the Nine Network television station. “It’s happened...
  • Prime Minister Scott Morrison prays for God to 'give Australia strength' and compares the fight against Coronavirus to the story of Moses in leaked video

    Scott Morrison has asked for 'prayers for Australians' in a leaked video posted on a Christian website in which he appears to compare himself to Moses. The Prime Minister, an evangelical Christian, led a heartfelt prayer for the nation, saying Australia could 'rely on and trust in God' during the coronavirus pandemic. As he began reciting verses from the Bible, Mr Morrison discussed the story of Moses as he compared it to trying to steer the government through the crisis. Speaking about national cabinet meetings, he said: 'There are decisions we're taking now, which is to extends the borders as...

    Gatherings have been further restricted to two people, under "radical" and unprecedented measures agreed to by National Cabinet to slow the spread of coronavirus. Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the previous gathering limit of 10 people had been cut to two, after meeting with state and territory leaders on Sunday night. Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy said the changes were strong but necessary. "This is radical", he said. "The vast majority of Australians have done the right thing in the last week". "We have seen huge evidence of that, but have also seen some very silly behaviour of people who...

    On Thursday's New Day show, CNN correspondent Anna Coren highlighted accusations by climate alarmists that the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, is partly to blame for the intensity of the current wildfires because he has not done enough to support regulations to try to curb global warming, as if were possible for government action to do so. At 6:45 a.m. Eastern, after Coren spent most of a two-minute report recalling the plight of Australian residents in New South Wales who are having trouble finding a safe place because of the large area effected by the fires, the CNN correspondent concluded...

    NYT ^ | 09/30/19 | Mark Mazzetti and Katie Benner
    The discussion was another instance of the president using American diplomacy for potential personal gain. President Trump pushed the Australian prime minister during a recent telephone call to help Attorney General William P. Barr gather information for a Justice Department inquiry that Mr. Trump hopes will discredit the Mueller investigation, according to two American officials with knowledge of the call. The White House restricted access to the call’s transcript to a small group of the president’s aides, one of the officials said, an unusual decision that is similar to the handling of a July call with the Ukrainian president that...

    Donald Trump is intimidated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's boyish good looks, according to former White House aide Anthony Scaramucci, who calls his former boss an 'orange fat blob' by comparison. The famously caustic investor who lasted just 11 days as White House communications director told Australia's ABC television network that Trump is a 'malignant narcissist' who 'needs the spotlight at all times.' Trudeau, 47, has parlayed a telegenic movie-star image and deft political softness into a quiet, steady global image – the polar opposite of Trump's bombast. Scaramucci, now on a one-man crusade to stop the U.S. president...
  • Andrew Bolt: Scott Morrison’s ‘miracle’ win has already changed Australian culture

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison was right: his shock election win last month was a “miracle”. See how it’s already changed our culture. Start with the most obvious example. Before the election, ABC managing director David Anderson claimed not to see that our national broadcaster had been hijacked by the Left: “I don’t see any evidence to say we’re biased.” But with the Coalition government re-elected, a miracle! The ABC boss’s vision was healed. Now he admits: “The perspective of views that we represent is something that we could improve on.” Others in our intelligentsia have also had their vision miraculously...

    On Sunday, I explained how Trump-like politicians are winning all over the globe. As if on cue, the results came in from Australia. It was a stunning upset win for Trump-like Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Australia's election matched America's 2016 balloting in every way. It is a warning for Democrats and anyone building a campaign around global warming, the Green New Deal, massive government regulation, higher taxes on "the rich" and open borders. Same issues. Same leftist media bias. Same results. Just like America in 2016, members of the leftist party (called the Labor Party in Australia) thought they had...

    The Australian stock market has soared to an 11-year high on the back of the Coalition's shock election win. Investors reacted positively to Prime Minister Scott Morrison remaining in office, with the S&P/ASX 200 index rising by 97 points to 6,462.3 points during early trade on Monday. This was the highest point since December 14, 2007, before the the global financial crisis worsened and a month after Kevin Rudd was elected Labor PM. ... Investors appeared to be buoyed at voters rejecting Labor's plan to deprive share-owning retirees, who don't pay income tax, from receiving franking credits. They also rejoiced...

    Australia’s re-elected Prime Minister Scott Morrison once brandished a lump of coal in parliament, crying, “This is coal — don’t be afraid!” His surprise win in what some dubbed the “climate election” may have stunned the country, but voters should know what comes next in energy policy — big coal. Battered by extended droughts, damaging floods, and more bush fires, Australian voters had been expected to hand a mandate to the Labor Party to pursue its ambitious targets for renewable energy and carbon emissions cuts. Instead, Saturday’s election left them on course to re-elect the Liberal-led center-right coalition headed by...

    President Trump has extended his congratulations to Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, after his surprise election win over Labor leader Bill Shorten on Saturday. Morrison, who was considered a serious underdog in the race, defied opinion polls and betting markets to emerge victorious in the election – a result that even he dubbed ‘a miracle’. He credited the force behind the unexpected win to a populist wave – the ‘quiet Australians’, as he called them - which is a phenomenon that similarly upended politics in Great Britain in the Brexit referendum, and in the US, when Donald Trump unexpectedly cemented...

Guardian Australia editor Katherine Murphy: 2019 is the climate change election. It was indeed, and they lost. The Liberals look like being returned in a miracle come-from-behind performance, although they will have to form a minority government. In Queensland, where Labor seemed set to stop the giant Adani coal project, Labor went from picking up an expected three or four seats to losing three instead. (Adani will now almost certainly proceed. The Queensland...
