I am hearing more and more that Anthony Albanese and the ALP should be screaming to the rafters about the shortcomings of our pitiful Prime Minister. And I agree.
He is very much the invisible man in Australian politics. I have seen nothing in the Mainstream print, radio or TV media. As far as they are concerned, he does not exist.
What we hear about is that Wonder Man who does not lie or leak messages or information. The one who cooks curries, supports the Sharkies and listens to Jen. And the one who has saved us from the ravages of Covid-19 by organising all the vaccines. Eventually. Not that timelines are ever mentioned. They do not exist in the world where Super Scomo rules. Once the announcement has been made no further action is required. Any questions about the matters are brushed off with a reference to the announcement.
All of this is mentioned on front pages, in TV and radio headlines and on late night Fox TV. There is no room left for anything Albo or his team says. And they have been saying plenty. So why don’t we hear any of his statements, thoughts and ideas? Because it doesn’t suit the media moguls.
The reporters, the journalists have been replaced, to a large extent by opinionistas. Paid for from the seemingly bottomless pockets of those media moguls and their advertising big business clients. It would be bad business to upset these cash cows.
The course many ALP supporters would like their preferred party to take would have Albo and his team shouting their ideas into a vast sound-swallowing bowl. The LNP would be able to pick up all those ideas which resonate with the general electorate and then claim them as their own policies. And we know how honestly the IPA errr LNP treat their election promises.
The only time the ALP is able to get anything like equal time in the Media is after an election has been called. Those special 33 days where everyone is trying to turn off from ‘This bloody election!’
That is the only time Albo, Penny, Tanya and Tony will be able to spread their ideas. The only time they will be able to negate the nine year propaganda campaign which has been run on behalf of all those corrupt foxes who are in charge of the hen house we live in.
So, as people who really want a change from the corruption and evil which passes for our Government, we need to seek out Albo’s Twitter account (@AlboMP), his website (anthonyalbanese.com.au) his Facebook page (Anthony Albanese) and read more Guardian and less News Ltd!
Retweet him, share his Facebook posts, spread the ALP message.
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.
It has decided that the Extremely Honorable Christian Porter should not be referred to the Privilege Committee despite the Speaker’s ruling.
So the Morrison Government has decided to ignore the advice of their Speaker. Or could that be better stated as ‘expressing no confidence in said Speaker’.
When that happens the Speaker normally resigns. Speaker Smith has not at this time resigned.
In the light of his recent adverse rulings directed at the Prime Minister, could it be that there will be an escalation in Smith’s reaction to the often over-looked bad behaviour on the Government benches.
Known for often removing Opposition members under Section 94a could he be planning to punish Government Members in the same way?
The immediate effect would be to upset the balance of the House. A simple ‘I move the Member no longer be heard’ could be lost. Clever footwork by the Opposition could pass legislation unwanted by the Government.
This could all be averted by a formal removal of Speaker Smith from his position. Excepting that opens the door for an ex-Speaker Smith to move from the Liberal Party Room to the Cross Benches!
Creating the very situation the Government is so desperate to avoid that they made the decision to reject the Speaker’s ruling.
That of losing a majority on the floor of the House.
Oh what a can of worms has just been opened – – –
And I have stocked up on popcorn!
We keep hearing about the wonders of the ‘Doherty Report’ and how it will, like Moses, lead us to the promised land of no lockdowns, no COVID-19 and an economy where capitalists can carry on enslaving the plebs ever more cruelly!
But just what IS this fabled report and how accurate is it in its prophecies?
Here is one detailed attempt to decipher its methodology, its conclusions and its misuse by a Prime Minister desperate to achieve something. ANYTHING!
This article contains much that our political ‘leadership’ is NOT telling us. Such as just how ineffective Hotel quarantine really is.
It is a long article but well worth a read!
Resurrected from 2013. A part of the past of the star of Fox News After Dark. The evidence is all there in the newspapers of the time.
News Ltd on May 20th, 2013 reported that, “TONY Abbott has called his chief of staff Peta Credlin “outstanding” after she was caught drink driving on the night of the Opposition Leader’s budget reply speech. Mr Abbott said Ms Credlin was “an outstanding chief of staff”. ”Yes, she has made a mistake, she has done the wrong thing, she accepts she made a mistake and will go through the ordinary process every Australian in this position goes through,” Mr Abbott said. Mr Abbott, who was speaking to the media after a visit to a print factory in the Sydney suburb of Silverwater today, added that Ms Credlin had been caught drink driving “during her private time”.
Well, Peta Credlin is not actually a murderer. And she was not charged with attempted murder.
NOT QUITE! More by good luck than good management.
She was drunk and lucky. Stopped by a policeman before she hit a car with a mother and five year old on board or a late night pedestrian or a – – – Any one of a hundred scenarios.
DRUNK PEOPLE WHO DRIVE EVENTUALLY KILL PEOPLE!
On 25th September, 2013 after the change of Government, ABC Online news reported, to the total surprise of absolutely no one, “Prime Minster-elect Tony Abbott’s chief of staff has avoided punishment on a drink-driving charge in the ACT Magistrates Court. Peta Credlin, 42, arrived at court flanked by her high-profile defence lawyer and Mr Abbott’s press secretary. Ms Credlin was charged with low-level drink-driving in May when ACT police caught her returning home from Mr Abbott’s budget reply speech. Ms Credlin pleaded guilty to blowing 0.075 during a breath-test, but today avoided having a conviction recorded.
Ms Credlin’s lawyer argued for the charge to be dismissed due to her otherwise clean driving record and the punishment already received by having the matter play out in the media. Her lawyer also told the court that incoming Attorney-General George Brandis, had written to the court describing Ms Credlin’s exemplary character and how she had a 21-year unblemished driving record. Magistrate Maria Doogan noted that Ms Credlin pleaded guilty at the earliest possibility. “I find the offence proven but I’m not recording a conviction,” Magistrate Doogan said.
I’m sure many other Australians charged with the same offence have been grateful for the Court’s ‘ordinary process’ and understanding in this way.
McDonalds are being good corporate citizens here in Australia and are creating a new burger.
It will celebrate the Prime Ministership of Scott Morrisonl.
The McMorrison Burger. Just $6.95.
It comes with double cheese, fries and extra meat.
It says so, right there on the advertising.
Of course, when you get it, the price has an added $19 Robo-debt, the cheese has been removed after a NDIS independent assessment, there will be no sauce because the Prayer Room is closed for cleaning and you will never get the fries you were originally promised because they are not available on the Indue Card.
Oh, and it’s only got half the meat.
Acting-Prime Minister Scott Morrison (for all Prime Ministers act only until they are replaced, by the people or by their own party) do you recognise these words?
‘From my faith I derive the values of loving kindness, justice and righteousness, to act with compassion and kindness, acknowledging our common humanity and to consider the welfare of others . . . These are my principles‘
These were the words that came out of your lying, corrupt mouth during your self-serving and delusional maiden speech in the House of Representatives on 14th February, 2008. Some thirteen years of corruption ago!
As the disciple Matthew said in that Book you claim to revere and follow, ‘By your actions, so shall you be judged.‘
And what actions have we seen? We will ignore the way you destroyed Michael Towke’s life to make your way into Parliament. Of course he is a Lebanese and so lacks that ‘common humanity‘ you promised to respect. May your God have mercy on your soul.
Shall we begin by remembering the way you so famously stopped the boats. With the best of intentions. Saving refugees from drowning. Only to rebrand them ‘Illegal Immigrants’ and consign them to offshore camps which are indistinguishable from the Concentration Camps so often used by nations to hide inconvenient people from sight. And then allowing them to die by their own hand or by medical neglect. Acting with ‘compassion and kindness‘ in that mostly forgotten maiden speech. May your God have mercy on your soul.
Then there was Robodebt, a scheme to defraud the poorest amongst us. Driving many to suicide and many more further into the penury our Social Security system is supposed to avert. Carefully avoiding considering the welfare of others. May your God have mercy on your soul.
More recently there was the so-called ‘Sports Rorts’ affair. Like attracts like and criminality attracts criminality so it is no surprise to see that those closest to you are also careless with facts and truth and the Law. Taking from the deserving and giving to the undeserving. A classic case of not caring for justice and righteousness. May your God have mercy on your soul.
Of course, you, Scott Morrison, may claim all that is simply politics and has no impact on your faith and on your private life. Yet it was you who decided that your wife and help-meet could not cope with her own life while you spent time in Canberra. Having spent a life caring for you and cleaving only to you as a handmaid it seems she had no friends, no support for herself and so you chose to pay someone some two thousand dollars a week to be her professional friend. It seems your ‘Jen’, who you so love to quote for her wisdom, is incapable of looking after herself. So that is the result of your loving kindness. May your God have mercy on your soul.
And now the Government you lead, and the Ministers you have appointed, have allowed a three year old girl under your control, to develop sepsis. Your people refused even the most basic of pain and fever control until it was necessary to fly her to the mainland to save her life and so separate her from her family. It would appear that the death of this young girl, and possibly the future death of her sister will be useful to you for it will allow their parents to be deported with no legal hindrance. To act with compassion and kindness, acknowledging our common humanity and to consider the welfare of others.’ May your God have mercy on your soul for few of the voters in Australia who have children of their own will show mercy to you and your Government!
I shall leave you, worshipper of a God I do not recognise with the words written in the Book you revere. They are found in Jeremiah 34:17.
‘Therefore this is what the LORD says: You have not obeyed Me; you have not proclaimed freedom, each man for his brother and for his neighbor. So now I proclaim freedom for you, declares the LORD–freedom to fall by sword, by plague, and by famine! I will make you a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.‘
Some time ago, now safely out of the memory of the average Australian, a political staffer working for Linda Reynolds, named Bruce Lerhmann was accused of rape inside Parliament House by Ms Higgins, a fellow staffer. The moment the matter went public, Mr Lehrmann disappeared.
There were rumours that he had returned to Texas to be with his parents. His mother is on the bench of the Texas State Court.
He has proved to be untraceable but information surfaced today which may solve the mystery.
That information was based on this.
The link to that page is now inactive yet, according to some social media people, it was still active this morning. An inspection of the home page for the above entry shows that it is a slick and very well presented website with several subordinate pages.
The six subordinate pages are fairly standard and five of them are operable and work very well.
The exception is the ‘Our People’ page. It is suddenly not available.
Although this does NOT locate the missing Staffer with certainty. The page could be a forgery or the person named as Bruce Lerhmann could be a different person to the political staffer, perhaps further investigations could find the facts and verify that Bruce Lehrmann has been found!
Could it be that the sudden disappearance of that page could indicate a sudden resignation from the firm of Parker and Partners.
This may be the reason the ‘Our People Page was withdrawn. Found on the Twitter account of Marie @mariewalsh18
Portrait of our Sacred Prime Minister
Immaculate in life
Chosen of God
Perfect in all He does.
Keeper of the Word of Jen
Having been Minister for Foreign Affairs in the Morrison Government since 2018, and was also appointed Minister for Women in 2019, and with a looming leadership crisis within the Federal Liberal Party, there is a possibility that Marise Payne may be elected leader. Although Payne is a Senator there is a precedent. Senator Gorton was elected leader, became Prime Minister and was then successfully elected to the Lower House in a by-election. Good Grief! Was that in 1968? Nearly 50 years ago!
Payne has a number of advantages over Peter Dutton, the obvious Morrison replacement now that Porter has lost his place at the head of the queue.
First and foremost, she is not universally disliked and mistrusted. Peter Dutton carries a lot of very negative baggage and would be a severe electoral disadvantage for the Liberal Party. This would probably still be true even with a major Murdoch campaign to turn him into the guy next door.
Secondly, there is a spreading panic within Liberal Parties across Australia following the McGowan Landslide in Western Australia. The first signs have begun to appear with a snap spill in the Victorian party room.
Thirdly, she is a woman in the midst of a Women-led protest at the age old gender status quo.The potential for her to reclaim the Liberal female vote is great. After all, it worked with Julia Gillard. And Payne is also a redhead!
Fourthly, as the ‘yes-woman’ she has become, the men who will promote her know that she will do as she is told. She may not iron shirts for the party leadership but she would be trusted to keep the seat warm while a more electable male is groomed.
I am sorry if this affects you badly. Memories of past atrocities can be offensive.
It is meant as a warning, as a sombre reflection on what is happening in our society today. Concentration camps did not begin with gas chambers (The British started them during the Napoleonic Wars) Yet the carelessness for human life grew as the camps became commonplace in The Nazi Empire.
That carelessness for human life is beginning to show in our Australian society.
In the Refugee ‘facilities’, in our ‘care’ for the unemployed, in our Aged Care ‘Homes’, . Unless we, as a nation rise up and say, ‘ALL our people are valuable. All humans have worth.‘ then we are committing our nation to a path which I dare not contemplate.
They imprisoned the Refugees and I said nothing because I was not a refugee.
They forced the unemployed into crime, prostitution and drugs but I said nothing because I was employed.
They imprisoned the aged in understaffed, underfunded institutions and starved them but I said nothing because I was not old. But I accidentally lived long enough and the Old caught up with me!
