And then there are the facts, not the lies.

Authorities in Australia have arrested close to 200 people for deliberately starting the bushfires that have devastated the country, yet the media and celebrities continue to blame “climate change” for the disaster.

The fires have caused at least 18 deaths, destroyed thousands of homes, millions of hectares of land and killed hundreds of millions of animals.

A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.

In New South Wales, 24 people were arrested for arson, risking prison sentences of up to 25 years.

In Queensland, police concluded that 103 of the fires had been deliberately lit, with 98 people, 67 of them juveniles, having been identified as the culprits.

“The link between arsonists and the deadly fires that devastate Australia every summer is well known and well documented, with the rate of deliberately lit fires escalating rapidly during the school holiday period,” reports Breitbart’s Simon Kent.

Around 85 per cent of bushfires are caused by humans either deliberately or accidentally starting them, according to Dr Paul Read, co-director of the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson.

“About 85 per cent are related to human activity, 13 per cent confirmed arson and 37 per cent suspected arson,” he said. “The remainder are usually due to reckless fire lighting or even just children playing with fire.”

"How many forests do we need to burn until you believe man is destroying the planet?" - Leftists


"It's climate change, not arson. They could only confirm 13% arson, so obviously not an arson problem." - also Leftists

They have a number of Muslim suspects. Hard to tell how many, but what other religious group gets "protected" from accusation. If all the suspected arsonists were white, there would be NO PROBLEM stating that. But back to the small number. A small number may have started more than one fire each. They had noted how the fires were started along a train route. Start a fire, hop the train. Hell, that was a big problem in LA where south central folk would jump a Metro Line train to rob in Pasadena.

No, they don't.

Fact Checked.

Overall, we rate the Pacific Pundit a Questionable source based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda/conspiracy, use of poor sources, a complete lack of transparency and failed fact checks.
Detailed Report
Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Lack of Transparency, Poor Sourcing, Failed Fact Checks
Country: USA
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 48/180

History

Founded in 2012, Pacific Pundit, like most questionable news sources does not provide an about page to describe their mission or ownership.

Funded by / Ownership

Pacific Pundit does not disclose ownership and revenue is derived from advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, Pacific Pundit exhibits extreme right wing bias through wording and story selection that always favors the far right. For example, this headline: NFL THUGS WHO DISRESPECTED THE NATIONAL ANTHEM IN WEEK 7 uses a derogatory racial term to describe protesters of inequality and police violence. Pacific Pundit also does not source to credible media, for example they use Infowars: “CRAZY LEFTISTS PLAN ‘SCREAM HELPLESSLY AT THE SKY’ EVENT” and Blacksphere: “MAJOR DNC SHAKEUP – MEDIA SILENT.”

The website also frequently promotes right wing propaganda and conspiracy theories such as this: ILHAN OMAR DOESN’T DENY SHE SUPPORTS AL QAEDA AND COMMUNISM. A quote from the article demonstrates extreme loaded language that is not supported by evidence “Trump wanted to exposed these communists and terrorist sympathizers for who they are and it looks like he finally did it. They’ve been well hidden and protected by the media up until today. Now, they are basically the face of the communist Democrat party.”

A factual search reveals a few failed failed fact checks
.


QUOTE=rufusprime99: Hard to tell how many, but what other religious group gets "protected" from accusation.

Really, what other religious group gets protected from accusations?
How about the Catholic church and all the money that's no longer in the Catholic church coffers to pay for silence, concerning SODOMY.
Or the White Right ™.


QUOTE=rufusprime99: If all the suspected arsonists were white, there would be NO PROBLEM stating that. But back to the small number. A small number may have started more than one fire each.

Each and every arsonist has so far been accounted for, and we have yet to read a factual source that any were muslim.



QUOTE=rufusprime99: They had noted how the fires were started along a train route. Start a fire, hop the train. Hell, that was a big problem in LA where south central folk would jump a Metro Line train to rob in Pasadena.
Wow, another Earth2 conspiracy theory, in LA, they start fires on the trains they hop to and from robberies, it's the wild, wild west.

It turns out that only 24 people are currently facing criminal charges for deliberately igniting fires in New South Wales, and even fewer have actually managed to start large fires. Remember that this is the number of people charged over the course of three months. There have been thousands of bushfires burning across Australia since September, scorching an area larger than West Virginia. As of Thursday morning, there were close to 150 different fires burning across New South Wales. Many of them are burning in remote, sparsely populated areas. So clearly this is not just the work of prolific pyromaniacs.

Officials in the state of Victoria have also refuted arson as a major cause of bushfires. “Police are aware of a number of posts circulating in relation to the current bushfire situation, however currently there is no intelligence to indicate that the fires in East Gippsland and north-east Victoria have been caused by arson or any other suspicious behaviour,” a police spokeswoman told The Age on Thursday. In the State of South Australia, 10 people have been arrested since September for deliberate or reckless fire behavior.

The main cause of fire ignitions of Australia’s bushfires is dry lightning, essentially lightning from thunderstorms that don’t produce rain. “The majority of these bushfires have been generated by lightning strikes associated with weather and climate effects,” Dale Dominey-Howes, a professor of hazard and disaster risk sciences at the University of Sydney, told HuffPost.

In fact, some of the bushfires have grown so large they have created their own thunderstorms, in turn producing more lightning.

The Catholic Church did not escape accusation, nor did they escape being demonized. And they deserved it. Did they get properly punished. No. But then again, neither did Obama for giving billions to Iran, that Iran then used to attack the US.

And who are YOU to be worried about sodomy. You should go sign up to be an alter boy. You might get lucky.

Muslims in a number of western countries get protected to mask their generally negative effect everywhere they go. They are masked so folks don't realize what a threat they are.

did you see em light it ???... could be a framing .. high speed rail wont let people rebuild in the same spot
... govt leader goes to Hawaii . when it starts..most nsw and vic is lightning and its always happened .
. but look when we spend so much money on f35 fighter jets for war and for every 1 fighter we dont need could have bought something like 9x 737 water bombers
... green political party always hides when this happens.. not a f#kn word from them... the greens regulations saved lots of bugs and larvae in the dead wood that people are restricted in collecting for firewood at roadside etc over the last 10 years.. but all those insects , animals and plants are dead now x 20000+.
Saved nothing.
government rules state that cfa can only control burn if they get permits weeks in advance EPA wont let them burn wet forest floor due to smoke pollution. so they burn on the dry days.. EPA saved a lot of us from pollution there didnt They???????????????????????????.
so the short of it is locals know how to prepare their area . governing bodys . F3k it up . WAKE UP australia AND smell the coffee/ smoke .
An x firefighter is a co worker.. and we have a local cfa here. and they all say once shes out of control ya just got to watch it burn .. probably will fall on deaf ears again and sheeple will vote greens liberal or labour .its not a cure all so people wont want to minimise the risk and authoritys will come up with a reason again to make money and put us in danger... anyway who cares if you believe me .
SO ANYONE ANYWHERE IN THE BRITISH COMMOMWEALTH CANT SEE ITS ALL ABOUT OPPRESSION.

Default with fires and hot nth westerlys etc

its for a approx 2 weeks after they can reignite .. i drove in the forest after last march 60000 hectare fire big logs were still smouldering and some had embers attached. you tell me if the green leaders turn every 4wd track into a walking track that a fire truck is going to go anywhere near a spot fire thats out of reach..????
and if the dead wood not far from the roadside and gets lit by something like a smoke butt or fire bug.tell me that its not going to burn hotter and longer than if the dead wood is not prohibited for collection ???
As far as i know if i put sticks in my fire place the fire goes out quick and is not intense , but if i put logs in there? well it burns long and hot.
Does that make any sense ?? Oppression , when a govt makes living hard for people in their own country.. Buy firewood then your govt will collect GST out of it ,,. dont buy firewood and not allow people to collect dead wood .. then the govt makes GST from gas and electricity mate .. im not worried about free firewood i got too much cos every year 2 big trees blow over at my place and i burn every cold night possible . still havent cleaned the yard up and i can legally cut the ones on the fence line not to mention 1/3 of every trees canopy. i just dont like the fires and being ruled by dip sh1ts in this country///buy water bombers / controlled burn //// firebreaks ///open tracks...
