The Limits of Military Supremacy

“Americans Need to Rethink War and Look Honestly at Ourselves and Our Friends”, ANTIWAR.com, by Arnold Issacs: “This time, they think they have it right.” So declared an Associated Press story reporting an upbeat assessment by this country’s top military officer at the end of a five-day visit to Afghanistan earlier this spring. Marine General… Continue reading The Limits of Military Supremacy

The ABC’s Trump Derangement Syndrome unveiled

In recent times, the ABC has descended into an intolerant, anti- Australian, biased organisation devoted to spreading Leftist views, despite legislation and a civic duty requiring otherwise. Because of these harmful trends, the ABC’s funding of $1 000 000 000 per annum ought to be eliminated, to inflict irreversible institutional damage extending beyond the current… Continue reading The ABC’s Trump Derangement Syndrome unveiled

Is Trump Assembling a War Cabinet?

By Pat Buchanan, March 27, 2018: The last man standing between the U.S. and war with Iran may be a four-star general affectionately known to his Marines as “Mad Dog.” Gen. James Mattis, the secretary of defense, appears to be the last man in the Situation Room who believes the Iran nuclear deal may be… Continue reading Is Trump Assembling a War Cabinet?

A US-Turkish Clash in Syria?

By Patrick J. Buchanan, January 18, 2018: The war for dominance in the Middle East, following the crushing of ISIS, appears about to commence in Syria — with NATO allies America and Turkey on opposing sides. Turkey is moving armor and troops south to Syria’s border enclave of Afrin, occupied by Kurds, to drive them… Continue reading A US-Turkish Clash in Syria?

Russia · The Donald Trump Presidency

Encouraging signs in America- Russia relations

In 2016, then- candidate Donald Trump railed against pointless overseas ventures, and sought to warm relations between America and Russia. And for promoting peace, President Trump was then accused of ‘colluding’ with Vladimir Putin on the campaign trail, in an allegedly grand act of treason. Since then, collusion delusion proponents have largely won out, in… Continue reading Encouraging signs in America- Russia relations

The UN’s Assault On Our Sovereignty

While I was suspicious of Australia’s ascension to the UN Human Rights Council in October, this organisation’s recent behaviour confirms these concerns. Clearly, the Human Rights Council as well as the UN more generally, is not interested in genuine human rights, freedom, or transnational cooperation. Rather, it forces neo- Marxist, globalist agendas down the throats… Continue reading The UN’s Assault On Our Sovereignty

Red Lines & Lost Credibility

Sometimes the simple lessons which can be drawn from international affairs, are better. So one of the most important steps in justifying a non- interventionist foreign policy, involves assessing whether overseas wars generally achieve the goals they originally set out to. The United States along with other Western countries, once united to destroy supposed chemical weapons… Continue reading Red Lines & Lost Credibility

America First, or a new interventionism?

In attempting to uphold campaign ideals, President Trump declared before the United Nations his desire to place ‘America First’. However, he also threatened Venezuela, Syria, Cuba, Iran and most notably, North Korea along the way. Distinguishing audacious rhetoric from actual policy on the ground, is often difficult and unclear. But what remains clear, is that… Continue reading America First, or a new interventionism?

Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

The Aussie Conservative Blog supports the tenacious, principled, consistently conservative political activism of Cory Bernardi, along with his Australian Conservatives party. And in his recent speech, Bernardi is more than correct: how can a nation continue to fund futile, globalist economic endeavours, while we are incapable of pulling our own finances into order? We hear… Continue reading Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

The case against war with North Korea

Recent reports have suggested that should North Korea conduct another nuclear weapons test, the United States may respond by attacking their country in a preemptive strike. Whether or not these reports are correct, such a move against North Korea–the desolate, archaic, pariah state–appears foolish. While Kim Jong- un seems mentally unhinged, and may indeed be seeking to escalate… Continue reading The case against war with North Korea

Why we should put Australia first

After seismic waves of right wing populism have swept across the Western world, now appears a good time to replicate the same here. So while One Nation has experienced a controversy- laden rise in the polls, the time has come more generally for Australian people and politicians alike to put their own citizens first, and for an ‘Australia First’ ideology to… Continue reading Why we should put Australia first

The future for India- Australia relations?

While I don’t wish our foreign policy to be purely based upon idealism or measures of democratic health, the future for Australia- India relations should be bright considering our historic and current similarities. While written in 2014, the following article provides an interesting insight into the state of contemporary Indian politics and of the nation’s leader:… Continue reading The future for India- Australia relations?

Senator Benardi’s speech on the UN

The following is an excerpt from Senator Benardi’s speech on the UN, following his 3 month parliamentary secondment to the organisation. And for the most part, I find myself agreeing with the Senator’s measured and rational criticism of the UN. Excerpt from Senator Benardi’s speech: Last year I was fortunate enough to spend three months as part of a… Continue reading Senator Benardi’s speech on the UN
