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)



I had a dream – about Tony Abbott

All this praise for Malcolm Fraser from the left must have prompted a dream or perhaps a nightmare about Tony Abbott.

It is sometime in 2017, after the election in late 2016. Abbott and his government have suffered a massive loss. The people have rejected his attacks on the poor, Aborigines, workers, the sick, the elderly, women, the homeless, the unemployed, victims of violence, Universities, schools, public transport etc etc. The list is almost endless.

In his confusion and despair Abbott seeks solace in his Catholic religion.

His good friend Cardinal George Pell lines up an audience with the Pope.  After over 2 hours Abbott emerges drained.

He recants his position of turning back the boats. He says we should welcome asylum seekers to Australia. He adds that we should go further and airlift them from neighbouring countries to Australia.

“The Pope has shown me that my demonisation of asylum seekers for cheap political advantage was wrong and against all the tenets of my religion and the teachings of Jesus Christ, ” Mr Abbott said. “I am truly sorry for the atrocities I have committed against refugees and will do all I can to make this great country of ours welcoming of them from now on,” he added.

Mr Abbott said that  he was now proud to honour the legacy of another great Liberal leader Malcolm Fraser on the issue of asylum seekers.

The liberal and reformist left began dancing in the streets. This is great news.

Meanwhile the impact of Mr Abbott’s attacks on the poor, Aborigines, workers, the sick, the elderly, women, the homeless, the unemployed, victims of violence, Universities, schools, public transport etc etc continued unabated. There was no cheering from them.

I don’t think Malcolm Fraser has the same awareness of power plays when he was PM as later when he retired. I did not like him as PM or their illegal sacking of Gough Whitlam.

To his credit Malcolm fought to the end injustice and created awareness of the war mongering Western Imperialists. Malcolm on his facebook page never took down any of my comments unlike Abbott who only wants positive feedback.

Russia is coming under increasing attack and the Western psychopaths think they can win a limited nuclear war with Russia and China. The USA is increasing pressure on Russia in the hope they will start a war. Yes they are MAD.

Putin has nuke missiles that will fire on the mere detection of too much radiation. So theory of having superior anti-ballistic missiles or interference systems does not work. Those missiles you do destroy, although they don’t reach their target still release lots of radiation. Just a small % of the nuke missiles fired are enough to kill most of the life on this planet.

Unfortunately we are led by puppets of the corporate system who are gutless morons.
