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
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
Liberty Works, by Stephen Cable, April 5, 2017: In a stunning display of ideological incompetence, the Prime Minister appointed his friend, Justin Milne, to fill the role of chairman of the ABC. Justin is so unsuited for the job he can’t even see the bias that’s so obvious to the general public. He appears to… Continue reading ‘No bias at the ABC’, in other news: ‘no Catholicism at the Vatican’
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?
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
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
Did the Australian government pay heed to the idea of ignoring Indonesia after the row over ‘offensive training material’? Unfortunately not, as instead, our Defence Minister has announced an ‘investigation’ into the incident. If we are truly interested in investigating something that ‘offended’ Indonesia, a country which practices female genital mutilation, and lashes females for being… Continue reading Poor move from Australia
Earlier today, Indonesia suspended its military cooperation with Australia after a ‘training material insult’. This action came despite our nation’s sincere apologies, and that reportedly the training material which so easily insulted our northern neighbour, was not an official document. When dealing with reasonable countries, this sounds like an odd set of circumstances. But Indonesia has a proven track record… Continue reading Indonesia cancels its military cooperation with Australia
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 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
As the Andrew Bolt and QUT case had shown previously, section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act is the great Trojan horse of modern Australia, as it subtly yet meaningfully moves to chip away at our great democratic tradition. The legislation’s most recent victim in Bill Leak, demonstrates the trivial, squabbling mess that we Australians have become: a people… Continue reading Freedom of speech under siege
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
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
Malcolm Turnbull’s grovelling Itfar dinner held in Kirribilli House last week, has taken its latest turn for the worse. In extraordinary revelations, dailymail has reported that caterers of this dinner brought in ‘special crockery’ to accommodate for devout Muslim guests, who refused to eat from plates previously used by non- Muslims. Given at the dinner, and in the days since,… Continue reading Dhimitude from an Australian Prime Minister?
Hardly in the existence of this blog, have I spent much time praising Malcolm Turnbull. For any supporters of the Australian Liberal party, the past 9 months have been difficult times, particularly for those on the Conservative side. But an election is approaching, and the time had come; to decide between Bill Shorten and his union hacks,… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull and his leadership credentials
