The GOP might lose the House but as long as they win the Senate they have the advantage, long-term. Only the Senate nominates and confirms judges so for the next few generations the Supreme Court will adhere to the Constitution and not invent crazy new laws the Dems demand.
Sky News’ pundits, radio and Press are still reciting “disunity is death” while they pore over Wentworth’s entrails. Well, I used to live in Wentworth, and I can tell you Saturday’s result had nothing to do with “disunity”.
As said here often, it is easier to bring a Party to its knees from the inside, and it has become the new normal in Australian and indeed world politics. Julia Gillard had been well-schooled in communist political tactics when she swore to infiltrate the Labor Party with the help of some of Australia’s best known communists.
We could have a similar problem Donald Trump is about to have with the Saudis … and it all comes down to trade. The fact that Joko Bonobo is making noises about Australia shifting its Israeli embassy to West Jerusalem is an affront to a first world nation like Australia by a dysfunctional third world nest of Islamic malcontents, crooks and jihadists.
Goodness me, we also don’t have a law that forbids teachers from giving pupils chili flavoured shit sandwiches for play lunch. “Oh how did we overlook that one?”, scream the loony Left.
It was Britain in 1926 that fell over itself to recognise the new State “kingdom” of Saudi Arabia. The US fell into line after the second world war when the world’s largest oil reserves of the Saudis became important in that it allowed the "kingdom” to effectively govern the price and amount of oil the West was entitled to. In return the Saudis did pretty much as they wanted. Not any more!
The hard Left is close to death with the loss of its bodily functions. It has devolved into its infancy years of early learning where things repeated often enough become fact, much like the times tables where eventually, through repetition, they sound right, even if they’re wrong. “Four fours are fifteen”… say it often enough, it will sound right, so why not stick with it?
Six months ago Trump engaged the normally aggressively hawkish John Bolton as his senior Foreign Policy adviser. Six months ago UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, told Trump she would need a break.
It’s well known that ‘political disunity’ is death, but a more certain and more agonising death is ‘political uncertainty’. Try to placate both sides and you will win the support of neither side.
A few years ago, I wrote a book entitled, “The Path: A Spiritual Guide to the Fifth Age.” Its main gist was that no matter which religion or means from which you start in your search for the divine, it is possible to get there by following your own heart, where God lives in each of us.
Like our by-elections, the US mid-term elections have traditionally hurt the incumbent Administration, but there is a change in the wind and Trump is about to place another feather in his cap with a clear example of the private sector having a huge IQ advantage over the public sector… which is also the case here.
