After President Trump accused ‘Animal Assad’ of committing another chemical weapons attack, a fresh media clamour for Western intervention in Syria began.

After the Coup, What Then?

With the Trump Presidency growing further imperiled each day, it is worth contemplating the consequences of a deep state coup. Notwithstanding beltway talk of ‘Russian interference into our election’, if Trump was removed from office, an entire generation of American voters and perhaps millions of populists around the world, would have their faith in democracy… Continue reading After the Coup, What Then?

The Independent, Andrew Griffin, April, 7, 2017: Many of Donald Trump’s most prominent fans have abandoned him after his decision to launch air strikes… Continue reading Donald Trump’s biggest fans desert him over Syria air strikes

Sen. Rand Paul Opposes Trump Airstrikes in Syria: ‘The United States Was Not Attacked’

Here at the Aussie Conservative Blog, I have staunchly supported Donald Trump’s Presidency thus far. However, Trump’s recent actions in Syria are blatantly reckless, and woefully contradict the foreign policy promises he once made. For now, we cannot be sure whether Trump’s strike in Syria was a simple retaliatory act, or whether it will signal the… Continue reading Sen. Rand Paul Opposes Trump Airstrikes in Syria: ‘The United States Was Not Attacked’

Cambridge Joins Growing List of Cities Taking a Stand for Trump’s Impeachment

The below article is yet another instance of Leftist hypocrisy when it comes to treating President Trump. Since his inauguration, Democratic politicians/ voters have endlessly aspired to legitimize the Trump Presidency, with them salivating almost daily whenever Trump and the term ‘impeach’ is mentioned in the same sentence. In addition to all of this, they continue to exhaustively… Continue reading Cambridge Joins Growing List of Cities Taking a Stand for Trump’s Impeachment

How to think about Vladimir Putin

Hillsdale College, by Christopher Caldwell, March 2017: Vladimir Putin is a powerful ideological symbol and a highly effective ideological litmus test. He is a hero to populist conservatives around the world and anathema to progressives. I don’t want to compare him to our own president, but if you know enough about what a given American… Continue reading How to think about Vladimir Putin

Is a Trump- Putin Detente dead?

“Is a Trump- Putin Detente dead?”, Pat Buchanan, February 20, 2017: Among the reasons Donald Trump is president is that he read the nation and the world better than his rivals. He saw the surging power of American nationalism at home, and of ethnonationalism in Europe. And he embraced Brexit.

Moral Supremacy and Mr. Putin

America, Australia, and all other nations on earth, do not possess histories clean of moral sin. So while we wish for morality to be enforced across the world wherever is possible and should act accordingly, on certain occasions such luxuries cannot be afforded. Likewise, when governments enact democracy crusade foreign policies, such strategies are ineffective, and generally harm the world… Continue reading Moral Supremacy and Mr. Putin

The implications of ‘Russian hacking’

Evidence is said to be mounting, that the Russian government sought to indirectly interfere in the 2016 Presidential election, by aiding the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton. While the whining Left are using these reports by US intelligence agencies to delegitimize Donald Trump, a crucial home truth is first worth acknowledging. Throughout the last election cycle, despite lies… Continue reading The implications of ‘Russian hacking’
