THE SWAMP IS NOW BEING DRAINED... SO WHAT ABOUT OUR BILLABONG?
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.
A change in US Administrations involves getting rid of the dead wood the electorate has said it no longer trusts. A change in an Australian Administration involves maintaining the very same heads of the very same agencies that got a former Government into a heap of trouble in the first place! Is Turnbull right about his Republic notion?
Government Departments need a thorough spring clean each time a Government is thrown out and that is exactly what is happening in Washington right now. If not, there will be former ideological regimes working to bring down the soon-to-be-current one of Trump’s.
The IRS was found to have targeted Republicans for special audit over the past eight years. Our ATO also has a political agenda, as do all Government Agencies. So why the hell are incoming Governments obliged to keep the very Agencies that are certain to work flat out to kill them?
Oh yes, I know, Heads of Agencies are mostly term appointments made under the Governor General’s Office in order to maintain continuity. Yep I’ve heard all that guff before.
That’s why we are still burdened with the likes of Gillian Triggs of the HRC, the ABC and the Director General of ASIO, Duncan Lewis, who is also a recent GG appointment who appears to be in the same useless mould as the former Director General, David Irvine who spent more time doing after dinner speeches than looking for manic Muslims.
Irvine (and now Lewis) was in budget allocation competition with five other related Australian Security Agencies who still refuse to pool security intelligence for fear of losing the kudos that drives their budgets.
The CSIRO over the past 30 years has nurtured and promoted a global warming culture that has cosseted Left Greens in high office promoting Left Green policies. It is currently led by loony Larry Marshall, who pushes the dishonest warming “science” while developing his pet occult venture of water divining.
Larry Marshall (above) has had his tenure extended until 2025. Now there’s a surprise!
Minister Greg Hunt commented, "I look forward to working with Mr Marshall as CSIRO continues to deliver outstanding science for the benefit of Australia and Australian industry". Again that’s no surprise from the little Minister for Global Warming who hands over $10 billion a year in “science” development costs and works hand in hand with Gillard’s $10 billion Renewable Energy Fund.
How Abbott could possibly have successfully led a Conservative Government with such entrenched Left departments actively determined to unseat him is not a mystery...we all know what happened.
The plush new Canberra offices of the CSIRO
The CSIRO has an office in every State and Territory with over-fed bosses who fold to any outrageous union demand. WTF does it need an office in every State for, if not for the interstate business class airfares to ensure they all enjoy long lunches to discuss the venue for the next bout of long lunches?
The CSIRO is allowed to fraudulently promote and represent itself as an innovator and inventor but with 6,500 staff on luxurious conditions it has been unable to even partially pay its way, still demanding huge dollar injections, greater than does the ABC, despite its claim of making big money from its endless list of phony inventions .
The CSIRO’s main claim to fame is the “invention” of WiFi. This is totally incorrect and has landed CSIRO in a phalanx of permanent US litigation with laptop makers Sony, Lenovo and Acer.
John O'Sulivan receives the PM's award with Kim Carr
WiFi was invented by two US companies long before a Dr John O’Sullivan was employed by the CSIRO on the basis of his WiFi “add-on”, a sort of app, to the early 90s technology discovery.
The CSIRO, no stranger to constant litigation, then set about suing dozens of US companies. Huge Companies such as Acer, Atheros, AT&T, Broadcom, Gateway, Lenovo, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sony who paid the CSIRO an embarrassing pittance just to get rid of the serial litigant.
Joe Mullin of ARS Technica Magazine, said, “The partial transcript from the 2009 trial still stands as the only public record of CSIRO's outsized claims to have invented WiFi.
But hang on a minute, there are thousands of dodgy QANGOS dependent on our taxes and the CSIRO is but one of hundreds of organisations that suck on the taxpayer’s teat while dreading the election of another Tony Abbott.
Abbott was a successful micro version of Trump without the ability to drain anything.
If a Tony Abbott happens again, they will be there to contribute to another assassination... their inflated incomes and obscene expense accounts depend on it.
As PM, Abbott was confined to wet lettuce, nominal cutbacks to these obese Government Agencies. Anyway “Green Energy” and ABC cuts were restored by Turnbull and Hunt immediately after the sacking of Abbott.
And of course the stick insect rushed back to the UN with a replenished sack full of money to contribute even more to Australia’s belief in the global warming hoax that Abbott rightly claimed was "crap".
We can sit back and watch Trump drain the swamp... but hell will freeze over before the billabong gets drained of our bludging Left Green freeloaders.
