Battle between Abbott and Turnbull precipitated by Bernardi's departure?

It's clearly on between Abbott and Turnbull now. Tension really heated up after Tony made it very clear what he thought the Government should do at the launch for the book Making Australia Right.

I'm sure Tony sincerely believes that he's only speaking up in the interests of his beloved Liberal Party. And his prescriptions are all good, IMO. (I particularly like the one about abolishing the Human Rights Commission. Boy, would it be great if that happened. So much money saved and misery avoided!) That said, it's pretty clear he also wants his old job back. So he's being a bit disingenuous when he says that he's not white-anting. 

In any case, Turnbull is clearly losing his patience. He's said that Abbott's attack on his leadership is "sad". (Hmm. Maybe he's emulating Donald Trump, who often ends tweets with that adjective. If so, it just doesn't have the same effect ... which is actually kinda sad in is own right.)
I think that this open conflict between the two was inevitable. The tension has been palpable, if undeclared, for ages. But I do think that Cory Bernardi leaving the Liberal Party to form his own has sped the whole process up.

With Bernardi's new party Australian Conservatives doing so well in the polls, Tony has realized there really is something massive happening. And he'd better start making some serious moves to stop the Coalition "drifting to a defeat". 

I'm going out on a limb here. But I reckon an Abbott challenge to Turnbull is inevitable. Just a matter of when ...

And whatever happens it's a good thing. There's now a contest again. That's definitely been missing so far under Turnbull.

Caleb Bond's youth and conservatism trigger the Left big time

You may have heard of Caleb Bond. He's a 17 year old columnist for the Daily Telegraph.

He's obviously precocious and prolific. And he's doing very well for himself. But he certainly cops an inordinate amount of snark -- some of it from other media "professionals".

Now, if he were a young leftie he'd be all over the mainstream media with fellow progressive columnists and journos gushing about him non-stop. They'd laud him as wise beyond his years and a great hope for the future and all the rest of it.

But because he has the temerity to be a conservative, they -- along with their fans on social media -- consider him to be fair game. You see lots of witless, nasty abuse of him on Twitter that focuses almost entirely on his young age and ignores what he actually says.

I actually laughed at that tweet. It's such an own goal! After all, it's lefties who insist on remaining child-like their entire lives. Replace "Caleb Bond" with "Jessica Irvine" and it'd be much closer to the mark ... 

Some of the worst abuse of the young commentator comes from leftie women. Disturbingly, it often has a sexual tone to it.

Now, that's actually from a "news editor". (Although she does work at Pedestrian Daily, which is chockas with credulous lefties. So, "fake news editor" would be more apt.)

Now, imagine if there were a 17 year old female columnist employed at The Guardian. And a male editor at the Daily Telegraph mocked her on Twitter, making creepy allusions to her sex life. Not only would this provoke a tsunami of condemnation on social media, it would likely become a mainstream media story in its own right, with female media professionals (perhaps even Alex Bruce-Smith herself!) leading the charge to have him sacked. And they would succeed without a doubt.

Ugh. The Left! They are such a bunch of sexist, ageist bullies aren't they?

In pressers Trump mocks and bypasses the “very fake news” media

So funny to watch the reaction of self-important MSM “journalists” during and after President Trump's recent press conference. They, and the Left generally, really don't get what's going on.

They still think that they matter and should be taken seriously. So they're appalled and dismayed by Trump's expressions of disdain for them. They then report his behaviour as unhinged, chaotic, narcissistic, etc.

But Trump's theatrical railing at these purveyors of “very fake news” is not evidence of delusion as many of them claim. It's actually him playing a yuuuge joke on 'em. They're not laughing, of course, because they are the butt of it.

See, Trump long ago figured out that the MSM's claims of objectivity and balance were a massive load of bollocks. They were clearly all in for Hillary and the Democrats, prepared to tell massive, brazen lies to boost her chances and destroy his.

So during his campaign for election and since his win he's focused on bypassing the MSM -- mainly through the use of Twitter and other social platforms. Not only did he use pithy rhetoric to speak directly to voters, he trolled (pranked) the liberal media repeatedly.
Liberal “journalists” are pushing the line that they've been provoking him into fits of rage with their courageous reporting, and he's revealing his true, dangerous nature. But it's actually the other way around!

He's goaded them into showing their jaw-dropping bias and dishonesty -- not to mention po-faced sanctimony. So, when he gives pressers he's turning to the voters and saying: “Take a look at these bozos. They, like Hillary, are utterly corrupt and think of you as deplorables. I respect you, but they hate you.”

This has worked big time, and he's actually built up his own narrative. Out in the real world of the electorate -- where it really matters -- this narrative is beating the ol' PC one peddled by the MSM -- mainly because it's so much closer to the truth.

I find it incredible that his enemies can't see this … But they are lefties, I suppose. They have a habit of believing their own BS. You can see that this tendency is just as strong in the Australian Twitterverse as it is in the American MSM.

Individualist Trump in classic struggle with collectivist deep state and its allies

I'm sure I'm not alone in being continually gobsmacked by the scale and intensity of the struggle going on in Washington DC. Even though Donald Trump won the battle for the presidency fair and square he still has to deal with the Democrats and every baying pack to the left of them claiming that he's not a legitimate POTUS. The mainstream media, too, have discarded any pretence of objectivity and are doing their utmost to portray the new administration as a lying, incompetent, dysfunctional rabble. Then there are the white anters in the GOP  itself. And to top it all off DJT has the bloody deep state to contend with! While it does seem there are many in the FBI and some in the CIA in his corner, perhaps the majority in the intelligence community see him as the enemy. 

What's really interesting about their successful takedown of Michael Flynn is that it seems to have been in retribution for his (and his son's) interest in Pizzagate, the “conspiracy theory” about how politicians and the CIA are involved in human trafficking and sexual abuse of children. Even Hillary Clinton herself, a big supporter of the IC who shares their goal of starting a war with Russia, retweeted a former advisor who alluded to the pizza parlour at the story's centre (Comet Ping Pong).
Rather than helping to debunk this theory, actions such as this actually give credence to it. It just makes any sane, rational observer wonder why this is such a raw nerve with these people. It also shows the extent of collusion between the Democrats, the deep state and the MSM. Not only have big news outlets totally avoided objective reporting of the story -- or quickly pulled any that were mistakenly broadcast -- they've also dutifully repeated the line that “there's nothin' to see here folks. Move along now ...”.

No wonder they absolutely loathe Trump and all he stands for. I don't think I'm being OTT in saying this is a classic contest between a flawed but courageous individual fighting for truth and the independence of his nation against a vast, sinister collective that has managed to covertly control hundreds of millions of people for many years in an immense web of brazen lies.

It's also not surprising that so many of those who were so completely taken in by this false narrative for so long are finding it hugely traumatic that Trump is now their president. It's like their whole world view is under sustained assault from the new narrative he represents. The emotional pressure is so great, many are even ending the deep relationships they've long had with those who now espouse it.

Milo Yiannopoulos exposes the truth about Berkeley: It's a PC zombie factory

I remember having a conversation with a leftie friend maybe 15 years ago about political correctness. I argued that it was primarily about controlling people's behaviour and she was using the usual defense: It was just about being compassionate and tolerant, etc. Claiming it sprang organically from goodhearted folk, she said, “I mean, people don't actually sit in offices and make this stuff up!”.

“Actually they do,” I replied. “It comes out of the universities, mainly.”

She rolled her eyes, and sighed exasperatedly. So I figured it was best to change the subject.

I always remember that conversation because it's sooo relevant to what's going on these days in the West, particularly in the USA. The insane campus reaction to Milo Yiannopoulos and speakers like him makes it crystal clear that most of these institutions are completely dominated by lefties, many of whom are on the extreme end of the spectrum.

These unis don't educate students. They indoctrinate them with cultural Marxist ideology. Being young and impressionable, the students simply accept this as the only acceptable way to view the world. They don't question these dogmas because, being so young -- and having been served similar junk through their school years -- they have no other way of seeing things.

If they do try to resist, they quickly realize this is a big no-no. Lefties are expert at subtle intimidation. If this doesn't work, they'll keep intensifying the tactics -- even to the extent of using the kind of outright mob violence they committed at Berkeley in reaction to Milo.

Desperate to do well in their courses and terrified of social ostracism most potential skeptics develop a facility for self-censorship. They learn to nip “wrongthink” in the bud almost before they become conscious of it. 

By the time they graduate, the poor young things have become politically correct zombies! They score gigs in government and big business (already captured by the cultural Left) and begin their slow climb up the career ladder, careful not to put a foot wrong politically. Some become journalists and perpetuate the PC narrative in the form of fake news.

Their heads are so full of this rubbish and their hearts so full of fear of questioning it that they remain in a state of denial about reality itself! But the older they get, the psychological effort required to maintain this false reality increases inexorably.

That's why we've got so many deranged middle-aged folk now. And given the powerful rise of conservatism across the West, this problem will only get worse.

Links between the MSM's fake news, pedophilia in high places … and Antarctica

If you are, like me, a right-leaning conservative or libertarian type, or even a left-liberal who's had a bloody gutful of all this PC crap, you've prolly been keeping an eye on a lot of the developing obsessions of what can loosely be called the alt-media. Which is why you would almost certainly have heard about Pizzagate, and how the MSM are desperately trying to “debunk” it. (Correction: They're frantically denying it by saying it has been debunked, which it clearly has not.)

Now, more than a few “online investigators” have clearly gone way OTT on this issue, letting their imaginations run wild. They've, er, spirit-cooked up surreal scenarios in which world leaders rape and sacrifice kids in satanic rituals, then drink their blood!

Now, I don't think the situation is quite that dire. But there's clearly something really sick and twisted going on that involves pedophilia and human trafficking that many extremely powerful, well connected people (in Washington DC mostly) want to keep secret at all costs.

It's telling that the term “fake news” entered the mainstream media in a big way at about the same time there was a massive explosion of online interest in claims that a pedo-ring is somehow associated with a pizza joint in DC.

I don't think this was the only reason for it, though. “Fake news” is an all-embracing term that can be used to discredit any competing narrative such as “climate change denial” or the view that Islam is anything other than a “religion of peace”. Still, the term clearly got a massive boost in the wake of Pizzagate and is often associated with it.

But given the kind of tosh the MSM have been cranking out lately including the Russian hookers stuff and numerous hate crime hoaxes on campuses there's a massive irony here: Those most zealously warning against “fake news” are the ones most likely to be broadcasting it. It's projection personified!
The reason for this is pretty clear: CNN, the New York Times and other big US media outlets are not just ideologically biased; they're massive corporations whose owners are fully paid up, card carrying members of the globalist elite.

These guys aren't just fat cats. They're corpulent lions and tigers ... who own fleets of jaguars, natch! They've been pulling most of the strings for ages now, and they've managed to do it on the sly because the MSM -- who've long had near total control of most people's perceptions of current affairs and politics -- were firmly under their command.

We often hear about the West versus Islam. And sure, that's happening. But the other big, and closely related, "cold war" we're currently engaged in is the one between globalist elites and various nationalist movements growing apace in Europe, the USA and even down here in Oz. One of its major fronts is the media. It's an epic duke-fest over competing narratives.

With the rise of Trump, the mainstream media monopoly on journalistic truth has been well and truly busted -- perhaps permanently. He and his many supporters managed to get around the PC narrative to shed light on what Hillary and the Democrats were really up to with their creepy globalist cronies. That had heaps to do with why he won.

They achieved this mostly by using social media, which is how many -- if not most -- of us prefer to get our news these days. Even though the biggest players in this sphere -- Facebook, Twitter and YouTube -- are part of the globalist power base, and are playing “whack a mole” with certain influencers to stop the spread of politically incorrect, anti-globalist narratives on these platforms, they are fighting a losing battle. There are just too many users on there to control completely.

So the elites and their “journalist” lackeys are getting increasingly desperate. And things really seem to be coming to a head -- particularly pertaining to pedophilia in high places.

In the last week or so there's been a lot of alt-media chatter about how Trump and his army of swamp drainers have started going for the long-protected, extremely powerful rock spiders in American politics. It seems likely that jaw-dropping revelations involving some household names will unfold in coming weeks.

If true, this would no doubt constitute a death blow to the globalism-media complex. Which is why they need a yuuuge distraction.
Now, there's a theory gaining traction in the alt-media that Antarctica (of all places!) might supply this. Seems a lot of international luminaries have lobbed there recently, purportedly to see some mysterious objects buried under the ice -- perhaps even the remnants of a lost civilization. Mystical, New Age types have even been talking up a UFO connection! (I'm very skeptical about the veracity of these claims BTW. Finds like this are reported from time to time, and they usually turn out to be outright hoaxes, or at least discoveries whose significance is highly exaggerated.) 

Anyhoo, there's a widespread belief that the globalists, in a kinda “Hail Mary” move, will, through the MSM, beat up some super-duper-mega-uber fake news about Antarctica -- a shock and awe blitz about a game changer for humanity that will make any other news seem like extremely small beer. 

Now, I know this sounds completely and utterly whacked out, truther-level stuff. And frankly if anyone had told me I'd be writing a blog post like this even a few months ago I woulda laughed in his face!

But given what's transpired recently it's very clear that the mainstream media have long been peddling massive porkies at the behest of their super-rich masters. They still keep trying it on because they've been getting away with it for decades and haven't yet figured out that we just don't believe them anymore. So why wouldn't they try something like this? I wouldn't be surprised, TBH.

So, keep an eye out for news reports about stunning finds in Antarctica. It will be very interesting to see if this turns out to be a damp squib or not.

Breakaway Bernardi will erode LNP base, making Abbott's comeback more likely

Heaps of pundits, including some so-called “conservatives”, have been saying for ages that there is absolutely no chance that Tony Abbott will ever lead the LNP again. But I think this was because they were utterly terrified of what he represents. They were doing what lefties always do: repeat something over and over in the belief that it will actually become true.

I've long thought Tony could make a comeback. And while it's clearly far from certain, it's just become a whole lot more likely IMHO. 

That's because Malcolm Turnbull is a dead man walking. It took a while, but the electorate has finally woken up to the fact that this guy has no core principles. He's just fulfilling his lifelong dream of being PM.

Seems the main thing motivating him is his desire to be adored by the virtue signalling luvvies of the mainstream media. Being the PC totalitarians they are, their goals are in direct opposition to those of most of the electorate.

Then there's the fact that dinkum conservative Cory Bernardi looks set to start his own political party, which will draw a whole buncha conservatives, many of whom are “delcons”, away from the LNP.
With its conservative base being eaten away by Bernardi's party, One Nation and the Australian Liberty Alliance, the Coalition will have to do something pretty, er, radical to stay in the game. And I think re-installing Abbott as PM is what they may well choose to do. (Yes, they might ultimately decide against it. But they're still gonna give it some very serious thought, I'll bet.)

Now, when Tony was PM he certainly made some crazy calls. And the narrative about him giving Credlin too much sway, thereby causing much resentment from MPs, seems to have a lot of truth to it. So replacing him wasn't solely due to the Coalition's many left-leaning pollies responding to Turnbull's skullduggery. Still, these were huge factors.

And without a doubt the voters were really pissed off about the way he took over, particularly after the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd saga. Now, knifing Malcolm before the next election will of course be more of the same in a sense because he was ultimately elected as PM. Still, it has a kind of karmic symmetry to it that I think a lot of voters will appreciate!

And Tony definitely has qualities that the LNP desperately need right now and into the future. Firstly, he's a known quantity. Like his mentor John Howard, he's a conviction politician. Love him or loathe him, you definitely know what you're getting.

Also, he is a sincere conservative. Any other household names in the LNP who fit that description?

By putting him at the helm again they'll be saying to their traditional base: “We hear you. And we won't ignore your concerns again.”

If they don't do this -- or something pretty similar -- they're screwed, let's face it.

"KKK" stunt at NSW Young Liberals debate exploits our obsession with American politics

Recently I wrote about how fascinated we are with American politics these days. Obviously, that's got heaps to do with DJT now being the Big Enchilada. But it's long been the case that local pollies have looked to their counterparts in the USA for instruction on how to approach most issues. And the mainstream media here march in ideological lockstep with CNN and the like, of course. Clearly, this has much to do with that nation's global dominance in terms of popular culture. Just as movie and TV references are part and parcel of our own cultural lexicon, so too are American political and historical icons, stereotypes and other references.

This little ruckus at a NSW Young Liberals event is a case in point. They were debating the Trump refugee ban and a coupla meatheads in KKK garb crashed it, causing amusement and a bit of outrage.

Hard to know exactly what this was all about. But on first blush it looks like this was a false flag (or rather false sheet) operation of some kind. I suspect it was prolly anarchists or other far lefties who wanted to make the whole event look like a redneck jawfest. Or if they were sympathetic to the LNP, perhaps they were on the, er, progressive end of that spectrum, trying to tar their more conservative opponents with the racism brush.

Whatever was motivating these arsehats, I think it's well nigh impossible that they were dinkum Klabees, Kligrapps, or Kludds. Let's face it, of that there'd be a "snowflake's" chance in ... a real KKK meeting!

I mean, does the Klan even exist in Australia? Maybe there are about six or seven sad ol' loons in the local franchise. Even in America it's the fringiest of fringe movements nowadays. Even claiming that Trump himself is somehow beholden to the KKK is silly as (even though the Left does actually do this -- when they're not saying he's Putin's bitch, that is). So to say that Klansmen call the shots with the LNP here in Oz is completely and utterly absurd.

Yet sure enough robotically PC pollies and journos are treating this story as if these fools coulda been genuine representatives of the KKK. And racism "experts" have been consulted, natch. Check out this guy's analysis. He says he thinks it may well have been a stunt to get publicity for the Young Liberals.

It was a publicity stunt alright. But I think it was more likely one aimed at getting people like him and his fellow right-on hand-wringers to push the PC narrative that racism is rising in Australia, with the LNP somehow encouraging it. If you look at it this way, it was roaring success.
