Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Why protest Trump?

A ‘bigot’ is “a person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions”. This describes the followers of Left Wing ideology more than it does most other people in the community.

The protests in the US are protests against democracy! But hey, the Left believes in violent revolution – not democracy. So I guess the temper tantrums in the US are only to be expected. Most of those protesting are very young anyway – who don’t bother voting, and have no experience of the real world – pampered princesses all! They grew up under Obama.

Had Clinton been elected, the so-called right wing ‘bigots’ would have peacefully accepted the democratic outcome. They are far more mature than the left wing rabble!

Doing good is not in the job description

The US ‘Presidential cretinism’ (to adapt a phrase from Marx and Engels) is just that but again the Left is suckered into the media’s obsession with personalities. A Trump win will have two outcomes of import beyond the hoop-la. First, if he threatens the Empire, the Daleks will take him out. Secondly, his win would be a tiny plus for the forces of progress globally because the burst-arsehole face of imperialism and its reality would come closer. Bush was hated but seen as an amiable drip. Obama did blackface for the Wall-street Warlords – as Billary is doing now by pretending to be a woman – like Thatcher. The disjunct between the anti-social media’s version of Trump and picturing the US as the world’s last best hope is oceanic. Trump’s bad look won’t bring the Empire down but it gives a tad more space to those of us who know that that demolition job is what has to be done, and that it will take more than 100 years – look at the clapped-out British one still in its death throes. A French comrade said to us in Paris in 1983: for the Yanks there is no ‘other’. To them, we are all latent US consumers. That mentality is only the surface of what we are up against.

Trump in this short clip exposes the criminal New World Order. No potential leader on the planet has ever said words like this about these evil elites. Was Trump pretending to be on our side?

He does not mention NWO. He does not talk about it. he does not make the argument for it. The fact the NWO nutters fit this into their warped views shows he can appeal to a wide range of people. He is pretending to be on the side of those opposed to the ruling class. He is part of the capitalist class. He is as Jeremy Corbyn said a rich white faker.
