ELECTED MINISTERS OR AN APPOINTED BIASED JUDICIARY
… who rules the roost?
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
So now elected politicians need to explain to a court why a decision was criticised and why it was suggested that judges display an ideological bias? Are these fancy dressed galahs for real? Of course judges show bias, that’s why political parties appoint the buggers.
Justice Kirby and partner
Openly gay High Court judge Michael Kirby (above) cannot be expected to rule against the LGBT community, and he didn’t! He also backs Labor’s hideous “Safe Schools” program and even deviously misquotes its intentions. He, as expected, openly supports gay marriage. What else could be expected?
Most people understand the judiciary is a far Left organisation where it’s difficult to get a decision that reflects conservative values.
In Queensland alone there are 93 magistrates… 75 were appointed by Labor and only 18 by conservative governments. And to suggest Queensland’s female magistrates don’t carry an ideological Left, anti-male bent, in their decisions concerning Family Law and domestic violence is simply untrue and naïve in the extreme.
Peter Dutton (above) agrees saying, "Queensland magistrates are hopelessly soft Lefties"
In the US equivalent of our High Court, (their nine-member Supreme Court) Chief Justices Roberts, Thomas, Alito (and now Gorsuch) were appointed by Republican Presidents and are openly described as the Supreme Court's Right wing.
Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan were appointed by Democratic Presidents and comprise the Court's Left wing. Cheeeeez, bias is not a bloody secret!
Antonin Scalia was a conservative stalwart who among many other conservatives mysteriously met an untimely death. Last year while on holiday, he collapsed, leaving Supreme Court decisions deadlocked at four-all with Obama and Trump competing for a new nomination that reflected their own Party’s ideology. Trump won that battle with Gorsuch.
So for any judiciary to suggest its decisions are based solely on legal values is a load of frog droppings.
Australia’s Sir Garfield Barwick (above) was a Liberal Parliamentarian nominated by Menzies and appointed to the High Court by a Liberal Government. He was instrumental in the sacking of Gough Whitlam after Governor General, John Kerr, sought his advice. WTF do you reckon that advice was?
The three senior Turnbull Government ministers (Health Minister Greg Hunt, Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar and Human Services Minister Alan Tudge) are to be hauled before the Supreme Court of Victoria today to explain why they should not be charged with contempt after accusing the judiciary of giving softer sentences to known terrorists.
They will not turn up of course and will instead pay their lawyers to plead their cases. But it is outrageous that they need to justify their criticism of out of step judgments. It is even more outrageous that they could be found guilty of contempt for doing so. The three Ministers were elected! Judges were appointed by partisan Parties’ Attorneys General.

Judges must adhere to legislation, and in doing so their decisions must reflect contemporary community values. That is not happening and Ministers of the Crown have every right (indeed a responsibility) to point that out. Who the hell do these judges think they are?
The judges I have known are a breed apart who believe they are on a higher intellectual scale than we bogans. They are not, their shit still stinks and their golf handicaps certainly don’t reflect anything superior.
But how gobsmackingly arrogant of any court is it to suggest that their decisions are sacrosanct? For Christ’s sake, many decent people are dead because of their inane decisions concerning bail. Many Americans have been wrongly put to death by judges who don't give a stuff!
Left wing parole boards refuse to accept that there are people who are innately bad and that they will kill again and refuse to believe that Muslim terrorists are actually instructed to kill us.
I noticed last night Andrew Bolt was furiously dancing around this issue fearing a subpoena over his right shoulder.
Well, I suggest Andrew, if he believes in free speech, tells the three Ministers to instruct their lawyers to tell the Victorian Supreme Court to go and get properly fornicated.
