A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.

As we are treated to chilling photos of police crackdowns in Australia over their totalitarian COVID regime, this story has emerged:
In a real ‘WTF’ moment for Australia’s Covid dictatorship, NSW Police have been forced to investigate themselves after photos emerged on Facebook of a party held inside a Western Sydney police station. The party, which happened in July, may be in violation of Covid health orders. Sydney was under a strict stay-at-home directive at the time and the police station falls within one of the designated high-risk LGAs. Images uploaded online show the celebration was held for ‘Wear it Purple Day’ which supports the LGBTQ+ community.

California is seeking to ban gender-specific displays in stores. You know, because they don’t have anything more important to worry about.
