Truffles (Bill Leak’s title for him) yesterday spoke grandly of our wonderful security agencies that were intent on “keeping us safe”. Oh, the warm feelings of safeness and security he imparted to his nervous subjects. The trouble is, as with all things Truffles, it was a load of bullshit. It took US and UK security agencies to tell us of the active terrorists in our midst we were ignoring.
Perhaps only one innovation is equal to the effects of the computer and that could be the drone. It is already encroaching on every part of life from serious weapons of war to kids’ toys.
With Fairfax and the ABC leading the way there is good reason to doubt accuracy in reporting. False reporting seems to be their MO when trying to explain normal climatic movements yet, after around four billion years of volcanoes and fires, it seems the Left still needs a conduit to its hopes for a New World Order and it doesn’t give up easily when trillions of dollars and a far Left ideology are at stake.
The newly appointed White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, will not last long in the coveted White House role. This filthy mouthed, vertically challenged jerk, with an unjustified huge ego, will get swept out with the next lot of White House trash.
The only time a politician wants to talk about increasing the term of Office is when blokes like Shorten are convinced they will win the next election… clearly his suggestion of four years was prompted by inaccurate media predictions.
Of course not!. He remains the Number One ticket holder of the “Friends of the ABC” fraternity. But if he wants to win the next election he must stop cuddling up to Shorten’s ample breasts where he finds comforting solace in non-adversarial positions. He believes if he agrees with Shorten on everything he will win by force of his superior personality. That won’t be enough.
I first became aware of the gooey gut of the Liberal Party when I stood for it. I accepted a request from the Young Liberals that I stand in Canberra and that was okay by me at the time but I wanted confirmation that I would definitely win pre-selection. Apparently that had already been decided as they readily attested that that would be the case.
As explained here at the time, Rudd’s last-minute illegal refugee patch-up with P-NG's Peter O'Neill, after Shorten’s henchmen had given him the nod over Gillard, was never an agreement, nor was it a 12-month treaty. It was nothing more than a notated memorandum of understanding that took up half a page of A4. Whatever it meant was sheer gobbledygook and unenforceable anyway.
The ABC gets Michelle Guthrie as MD and she immediately upsets comfortable ABC staff by declaring 200 of them will get the chop. Ms Guthrie, who was not on the ABC Board’s shortlist of MDs to replace the disastrous Mark Scott, wants to take on global giants Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Netflix.
And that’s how crazy this Russian bullshit is! One President speaks to another President at a G20 meeting and forgets to tell CNN? I thought that’s what was meant to happen at G20 meetings. Had Trump avoided Putin the CNN headline would be: “TRUMP SNUBS PUTIN, RISKS WORLD WAR III".
I took a chance, nervously fingered the remote, and switched to ABC TV last night. I wanted to know if it had improved, as it used to be my regular Monday night TV must but I had sworn off that channel as I cannot afford any more new TVs.
