26.11.20.  Sky News host Alan Jones says political and military leadership has a lot to answer for as Australia has announced the guilt of our soldiers in Afghanistan to the world before anyone has walked up the steps to a court of law. “We learn today, two Australian defence members – fathers – took their own lives this month,” Mr Jones said. “We have announced to the world guilt of our soldiers in Afghanistan before anyone has walked up the steps to a court of law. “Political and military leadership has a lot to answer for.” Mr Jones spoke of the apologies offered by Australian defence authorities to Afghanistan and the alleged victims’ families. “What do we know about the statues of the so-called victim other than what is alleged and untested?” he said. “The pile on continues, how do you defend the nation by demoralizing those charged with that responsibility of defence? “The Prime Minister has done awful damage to the morale of our troops talking about the ‘brutal truths’ of this report when none of the allegations have been tested in a court of law. “The Prime Minister can repair part of the damage he has done by sacking the Chief of the Defence Force General Angus Campbell and the Chief of the Army Lieutenant General Rick Burr. “That would help restore morale.” More

26.11.20.  Being thankful for small mercies, the coronavirus pandemic, US election debacle and the now the war crimes issue has put asunder the irksome rubbish from the always whingeing indigenous mob demanding more. The charge to stuff constitutional recognition down the throats of all Australians is led by Morrison’s front man Ken Wyatt, minister for indigenous Australians, 3% only, but socks the taxpayer for pretending to bat for all simmers on the back burner. The following article by James Macpherson in the Spectator will help Australians when the day comes to make a decision at the ballot box.
When a black man hits a black woman it’s a white man’s fault, according to Diversity Council Australia. The Council, quoting Indigenous activist Kelly Treloar, yesterday tweeted that a high rate of domestic violence in Aboriginal communities was the result of colonisation. More

26.11.20.  It’s true! Niki Savva makes rare mention on this blog, a fact substantiated by a file search. When respected ladies called Ms Savva, “helmet head” and other disparaging epithets, the name Savva and her opinions slipped off the editor’s desk. Much like an annoying pet that’s kept in the garage so it doesn’t bother the neighbours. Nevertheless, that familiar hairdo pops up with a round-up on several identities. Her predilection for Malcolm Turnbull lives on within her bosom with the same intensity of her catty talons. Go get ’em Niki!
Two iconic images last week are destined to leave their mark on global and local politics. One was accidental, the other staged, yet each of them was ridiculous, vain and given the circumstances, slightly pathetic. The first was the former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, hair dye trickling down his face, sweatily prosecuting Donald Trump’s malignant agenda to poison Joe Biden’s presidency before it had even begun. More

26.11.20.  Sky News host Chris Kenny who has adopted an unfortunate sneer toward Trump says the transition of a Biden Administration at the helm of the United States will be a return to orthodoxy, or in other words, likely a return to underachievement. “Joe Biden and his team have begun their transition to power, and Donald Trump has given his staff the green light to facilitate briefings and resources, although he still reckons he won the election. How very Trumpian,” he said. “Biden has announced key members of his team. It is a return to orthodoxy. In other words, a return to underachievement. “I mean John Kerry, the former senator and secretary of state – the millionaire who loves to fly around on private jets – he’s your climate envoy and he’s gonna get everyone else to reduce their carbon footprint. Mr Kenny said one of the bizarre things about the post-election period was that the public profiles of the two candidates had completely swapped. More

26.11.20.  In the US yesterday the Democrates were whipping into a state of euphoria over Trump’s move to facilitate the transition of bureaucracy. On PBS the term “president elect” Biden switched to president Biden and that carried like the virus throughout media presentations. It used to be called, “counting your chickens before they are hatched!” And so might that be as news trickles forth, but not from MSM. A national organization has filed an emergency petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court asserting it has identified 150,000 “potentially fraudulent ballots” in the state’s presidential election, which Biden unofficially won by 20,000 votes. Wisconsin is one of several swing states where credible claims have been raised in the election, which President Trump is contesting.
On Tuesday, the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society said the number of ballots in question is more than enough to challenge the validity of the state’s reported election results. “Moreover, these discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law,” said Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project.

26.11.20.  Poor-old Cloive is not doing well with his latest court battles and like anything legal , as now see unfolding with the US elections, legal victories are more often words and terms sucked from the original when written many decades ago—black becomes white sort of thing. This is a popular pastime for activist judges as they bounce up an down, twisting and turning on the trampoline of lexicography!
The WA Government has had a victory in its $30 billion iron ore fight against Clive Palmer, with Attorney-General John Quigley claiming the mining magnate has had his legal position “considerably weakened”. The Queensland Supreme Court has overturned a previous decision in the state that could have thwarted WA’s efforts to end the bitter legal fight. More

26.11.20. Unlike the US, Australia does not have a bill of rights and, in fact, is the only Western liberal democracy not to have one. While Australia does not have an explicit freedom of speech, it does have an implied freedom of political speech. Freedom of political speech was first recognised in Nationwide News Pty Ltd v Wills, the High Court of Australia finding this right was implied in Australia’s Constitution. It is the nature of a democratic society to require freedom of political speech as if the country is to be led by the people (or individuals representing the people’s interests), then the people must be heard, and be able to develop informed opinions. However, current woke attitudes means we have little protection from the bullying Townhall’s Lela Gallery suffered, as described by her: More

25.11.20.  UPDATE: Audio added below. Brendan Nelson did a fantastic job managing the Australian War Memorial, his dedication is legendary. The AWM has been undergoing renovations and Morning Mail suggests that one of the tradies has left the lid off the latex glue drum and the extremely toxic odour has wafted into the office of the Director Matthew Anderson and his completely coddled brain. That’s what ‘glue-sniffing’ does. What is aptly named a, “brain-fart,” is Mr Anderson’s incredibly offensive decision to “reflect on the war crimes inquiry.” He said the institution is “a place of truth.” So, he wants to prattle on about crimes, the charges of which are not yet laid and no court judgement rendered! Can you imagine the invective this fool will receive today. Anderson is a bloody disgrace to the ADF, every soldier past and present and the citizens of Australia. On ya bike mate! Brendan Nelson might like to revoke what he said about Mr Anderson:
Dr Nelson said Mr Anderson possesses all the requisite personal and professional qualities necessary to lead the Memorial through its development.
“Beyond his sharp intellect, strong work ethic and humility, above all else he brings to our nation’s most iconic and loved institution empathy for young veterans and the ability to tell their stories. He is the right person for this role,” Dr Nelson said. More
