Malcolm Turnbull’s submission to China

Last year, I highlighted the problem of infinitely expanding trade with China. And suggested that in a trade deal where Australia is flooded with cheap, disposable products, while China gets jobs and wealth, China comes out as the clear winner. Likewise, it appeared that when push came to shove, China would exercise a stranglehold over… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull’s submission to China

Goldfields to get cashless welfare card after report finds drinking, drug use down

Since I blogged about the trialing of cashless welfare cards for Centrelink recipients back in November 2015, results have been positive. The cards have been found to reduce alcohol and drug consumption across 2 different communities, with the Goldfields now picked to conduct this experiment. Barring future findings of this trial contradicting earlier results, these cards… Continue reading Goldfields to get cashless welfare card after report finds drinking, drug use down

Bishop to cut trip short amid Libs drama

Julie Bishop cutting short a long planned trip to the Philippines, seems to suggest something dramatic is mounting within the Liberal Party. For as Malcolm Turnbull appears unable to control his backbenchers over the proposed gay marriage plebiscite, it therefore seems the Prime Minister has lost control over the Liberal partyroom. While a potential challenge… Continue reading Bishop to cut trip short amid Libs drama

Malcolm Turnbull’s political suicide and historic revisionism

  Understanding the scope of Malcolm Turnbull’s extraordinary miscalculation in claiming the Liberal party is ‘not conservative’, requires a brief trip down memory lane. The year was 2013, and as this author was often swamped by rabid Leftists in his first year of University, the Aussie Conservative Blog’s ideological roots were taking hold. Meanwhile, conservatives championed… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull’s political suicide and historic revisionism

Malcolm Turnbull says government considering laptop ban on international flights

If Turnbull wants to ban laptops on international flights from high- security risk countries, perhaps he should jump to the chase in better securing Australians, via putting an indefinite suspension on flights from such areas? Perth Now, by Claire Bickers, May 16, 2017: MALCOLM Turnbull has confirmed the federal government is considering a ban on… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull says government considering laptop ban on international flights

Malcolm Turnbull reveals tough new citizenship crackdown

Two days ago, I was somewhat cynical of Malcolm Turnbull’s proposed changes to the 457 visa program, with the move resembling a short-term political stunt. Regardless, Turnbull’s ambition to establish himself as an ‘Australia First’ Prime Minister has continued, with his government proposing tougher citizenship tests for aspiring migrants, which would more stringently assess English competency and the… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull reveals tough new citizenship crackdown

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to slash 457 visas

Yesterday, Malcolm Turnbull announced that he would be cutting the 457 visa program, which provides Australian residency for some 100 000 foreigners. According to our Prime Minister, this decision was motivated by a desire to place ‘Australians first’. But knowing Turnbull’s record of supporting left leaning policy and back pedaling, I doubt the sincerity of these newfound… Continue reading Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to slash 457 visas

PM Malcolm Turnbull’s lack of guts is heart of his problem

It is important for all politicians to seek appeal among traditionally ‘Left’ and ‘Right’ voters in order to achieve electoral success. However, voters also crave decisiveness, which Malcolm Turnbull woefully lacks. “PM Malcolm Turnbull’s lack of guts is heart of his problem”, Herald Sun, March 11, 2017: THIS will truly be the winter of Malcolm… Continue reading PM Malcolm Turnbull’s lack of guts is heart of his problem

Marise Payne to meet with General Mattis?

In fairness to Marise Payne, she may be a lovely person, and provide good company in private. But this non- imposing woman, who was confused last year about the role of her job, appears set to meet with the legendary US Secretary of Defense, General James ‘Maddog’ Mattis. From all that we have heard from President Trump,… Continue reading Marise Payne to meet with General Mattis?

Malcolm Turnbull destroys Bill Shorten

As I’ve made clear in the past, I’m no huge fan of Malcolm Turnbull, and I lost major interest in the Liberal party after he betrayed Tony Abbott to become Prime Minister. However, Turnbull’s demolition job of Shorten is not only entertaining, but when considering the union- controlled, parasitic, disconnected nature of the Labor party, he… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull destroys Bill Shorten

Trade is about more than jobs

Despite Donald Trump withdrawing from the TPP via executive order, Malcolm Turnbull has desperately attempted to salvage the trade deal. At one point, Turnbull even proposed that China could join the TPP, before Japan slapped down this foolish suggestion. In arguing for a revised TPP, Malcolm Turnbull has repeatedly justified these attempts with claims that a… Continue reading Trade is about more than jobs

The gradual relinquishing of our national sovereignty

Australia’s basic democratic principles and culture, were forged both internally and from the influences of Britain. Moreover, when Australia breached the civil rights of Aboriginals or committed other wrongdoings, it was Australians who converged to remedy the problems, not foreign bodies or international organisations. Basically, Australia was made great because of Australian people and the well-… Continue reading The gradual relinquishing of our national sovereignty

The staunch defence of our borders

The Australian government recently announced it will seek to alter the Immigration Act, to ensure that those coming to Australia by boat, will never gain citizenship and/ or entry of any kind. Moreover, should these legislative changes take hold, all boat people deemed legitimate refugees will be resettled elsewhere. Malcolm Turnbull reflected these ambitions on Sunday when… Continue reading The staunch defence of our borders

Turnbull’s Defence minister does not even know her own role

Malcolm Turnbull’s leftist Defence Minister Marise Payne, has made headlines but for all the wrong reasons. Pressed in a Senate estimate hearing yesterday morning, Payne struggled to coherently outline the difference between her own job and that of Christopher Pyne, whose role is Defence Industry Minister. In other words, there is no clear distinction between… Continue reading Turnbull’s Defence minister does not even know her own role

Islamism whitewashed by political elites

Today, Malcolm Turnbull moved a bipartisan- backed motion on ‘equal rights and racial tolerance’ within the Federal Parliament. Carried out in response to polling which revealed that one third of Australians believed Muslims should be subject to greater screening and scrutiny, the motion showcased just how disconnected Canberra elites across the spectrum are to ordinary people. In his motion,… Continue reading Islamism whitewashed by political elites
