On Friday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison renewed calls for an independent assessment of how COVID-19 originated in China.
The continued push by the prime minister has been met with criticism from within the communist regime.
“Morrison has been right to call for an independent international inquiry and right to stick by it after strident and threatening responses from China,” Mr Kenny said.
He also said, “reports now confirm that Australia is supporting Taiwan’s bid to be re-admitted under observer status at the WHO, against China’s wishes of course”.
“Again, that’s well done by our government”.

Giants appear in almost every culture throughout history-they’ve wrestled gods, conquered empires, and inspired heroes to rise in stature.

Examine the role that such famous tales as David and Goliath and Paul Bunyan played in their respective cultures; hear from director Ray Harryhausen, who helmed the legendary films Gulliver’s Travels and Clash of the Titans; and see how the existence of real-life giants is far less romantic than it is for their fictional counterparts. From the pages of myth to the annals of medicine, HISTORY presents a comprehensive look at these larger than life figures.
“Twitter suspended me for 12 hours last week & now gave me a WEEK LONG suspension for supposedly “promoting or encouraging suicide or self-harm.” Can anybody please tell me where you see any that in any of these tweets?????? The only thing I see in them is me talking about hydroxychloroquine – an anti-malarial drug that was ALREADY approved by the FDA to treat patients with the Coronavirus a day BEFORE they made me delete these tweets. These absolutely evil creatures would rather people die & Trump look bad than people knowing about a cheap, safe & EFFECTIVE cure. Nothing will make me happier than the day these corrupt social media tech giants are held liable. And believe me, that day is coming. WE are the news now!”
