TRUMP FIGHTS A HEAD WIND

... and suffers unfriendly fire from the rear

Larry Pickering

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.

Forecasts that he would self-destruct have proven wrong and Donald Trump has broken the mould for nominee elections forever. No-one has ever seen anything like this before. In between promising to deport 11 million illegal entrants and having an unpresidential punch up with the Pope his successful loony shenanigans have forced his opponents to adopt similar unfamiliar tactics.

If Cruz loses Texas and Rubio looses Florida it’s all over... it only needs Hillary to sweep South Carolina and Donald will face her in November and incredibly he’s the only one likely to lose to her.

The Republican machine detests him and it, like everyone else, expected him to fail miserably, so now the game has changed in an attempt to do what the Democrats couldn’t do... kill off the Don.

Mitt Romney, the Republican who threw in the towel and gave the world eight years of the disastrous Obama has been trotted out to demand Trump’s tax returns. Obviously the back room Republican machinery has been flat out finding a way to destroy the Don before he gains the nomination. It’s clear they would rather see the Clintons back in the White House than Trump.

So too would the Saudis and the former Government of Julia Gillard, after all both have contributed up to $25 million each to the Clinton Foundation.

Hard to believe that the GOP wants Trump gone? Well, where are the endorsements from the Republican heavyweights? There is not one. Only another maverick in Chris Christie has offered his support in return for some auspicious posting, the rest are busy undermining the Don.

Over the past 50 years conservatives have slowly yet surely moved further Left to capture the populist socialist ground. Australia is no exception. The ADF, Security Agencies along with quangos and the education and welfare systems, the ABC and most of the Press and Television, even Government Ministries have been quietly infiltrated over time by the Left, and no-one noticed.

In years past Turnbull could never have garnered support to unseat Abbott from within his own Cabinet. And Turnbull is a foggy thinking third rater who only now is considering a Double Dissolution ... too late Malcolm, you needed a DD election before the May budget not after it.

Conservatives are a lazy lot, they let things drift, they ignore the signals and changing body languages until one day they lose power and they wander off into the commercial world confused as to what happened.

Abbott hung around waiting for job offers but there were none. Yet sacked Labor luminaries have always been found cushy well-paid spots somewhere. Socialism has become respectable, but only to those who promote it or to those who have never experienced it.

Independent Bernie Sanders, a crusty old cold war communist, has found astonishing popularity with the blacks and anyone under 25 who believes in free stuff. The world is changing, we have come a full circle.

Those who realise what has happened to conservatism have reached out to Donald Trump but it may be too late. The Republican Party itself has set out to destroy him, because they know if the Don wins the Presidency the GOP is finished as a political force.

The attractiveness of socialism/communism in the early 1900s will again be fashionable.  

Everything old is new again.

The old lefties never really lost their passion & conviction even when the evils of communism were there for all to see. The mindset that holds that human beings are essentially selfish & grasping & must be controlled is so embedded in their thinking that it continued to dictate their public & private lives. It is very clear that while conservatives just got on with their work & family life, this lot used every opportunity to implement their ideas in their workplaces. Sadly, they have been very successful in every level of the education system in western countries. Many young people can no longer see the actual benefits of a democratic system. I have no idea how we are going to pull this back before it has disastrous consequences for the very survival of the Enlightenment ideals.

Bill Bennett comment is False. Refer Snopes. Conservative commentator William J. Bennett did not pen an essay hypothesizing that Donald Trump would be killed before he could be elected President.

GOP??

"The Republican Party, commonly referred to as the GOP (abbreviation for Grand Old Party)"

If anyone is interested, here's the latest on the US Presidency race from the Bookmakers prices change over the month of Feburary BETTING PRICES AVERAGED OVER 20 US BOOKIES
US PRESIDENT 2016 4th FEB 2016 1st MARCH 2016
CANDIDATE AVE PRICE AVE PRICE
Hillary Clinton $1.19 $1.62
Marco Rubio $2.54 $9.05
Donald Trump $6.84 $3.08
Bernie Sanders $7.35 $18.13
Ted Cruz $14.33 $86.45

Trump is saying what we the people think, same as Pauline did all those years ago. Being able to say what you think after years of PC crap is a breath of fresh air and the only clowns who decry open speech are those who live under false pretenses.
Or in other words, bullshit artists.

Having been brought up in state housing I think that's a very bad idea Hunter. A property owning meritocracy would seem to be the best idea. State housing should in the main be only a temporary measure. If able bodied people wish to rent then it should be private. Anything less is socialism.

SLAG well and truly on the skids: "Australia's largest personal injury law firm is on life support - Slater and Gordon has one month to convince its bankers that it has a viable plan to restructure the business or it's all over."

According to U.S. News and World Report, there's a model which has correctly predicted the result of every U.S. presidential election since 1912 with the single exception of the Kennedy-Nixon election (which may have been rigged). This model is now predicting that "the Donald" will be the next U.S. president. (http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-02-26/trump-will-become-president-statistical-model-says)

Thought I'd leave this here, one and a half hours of doco. It is amazing the resilience of the German people to have rebuilt their country after the Hellstorm from the East and West.

There is so much wrong with this ridiculous piece of tripe, I don't know where to begin, but I might as well start with conservatives being 'lazy'. If there's one group in society that looks after itself, pays its way, does its job and looks after everyone else it's the conservatives. Larry should be ashamed of himself slanging off conservatives in that way.

If we've been slow to fight in politics it’s because we’re courteous, and the left is dirty as all hell. Secondly, Trump is going to destroy Clinton in the general. He’s going to do it surgically and effectively. If you want to see a political master at work, watch Trump. He took that ludicrous buffoon iJeb! down with two simple words. Two words that destroyed hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars of donor money. He will dismantle Clinton, totally, at his leisure, for the fun of it. Clinton will be mincemeat and all Trump has to do is make a brief statement.

The Donald isn’t the end of conservatism - it’s a new lease on life for conservatism. The Dems have altered the demographics of the US with 50 years of immigration from the third world, they’ve swamped the colleges and high schools with activists, they’ve taken over the media and entertainment. The old-school style conservatives haven’t a hope in hell of overcoming those headwinds.

Only Trump, who can bring working-class whites over, plus many more blacks and hispanics than Romney won - can win. Conservatism is a lost cause, and I say that as an arch-conservative. We can’t get our message, which is complicated and subtle, through the media, when they’re so strongly against us.

There are bigger things also than political philosophy at stake here. Do you think, when whites are a minority, that other races will treat us kindly? Whites will be a minority in the US in twenty years, on current forecasts. The left has spent decades impugning whites historically, and the whole world blames white ‘oppression’ for not being as rich as - whites.

It’s all bullshit of course, and in a perfect world, other races would be doing what Korea and Japan and now China are doing, and that’s emulating white institutions. But South Americans and south Asians and Africans won’t - they can’t. They will continue to blame Europeans for their poverty when everyone else knows it’s their own innate incapacity that’s the cause. But that doesn’t stop them wanting to simply take our wealth as recompense for their lack of organisation and industry.

The US HAS to remain majority-white, or whites will become an oppressed group like they are in South Africa. If Clinton wins, she will massively accelerate the influx of Latinos from South and Central America, completing the Dem ambition of permanent government due to demographic change. Latinos vote around 75% Dem, every time.

We are already past the danger zone. 2012 was, as I and my friends watched that hot November afternoon, virtually the end. No conservative could win after that. We are now into territory when only a ‘movement’ politician can win - someone who can steal den votes, get cross-over from blacks and, yes, Latinos. Trump has emerged to save the day. He can win. He’ll destroy Clinton in the general, he’ll get cross-over. It’s not just the future of the US at stake here. It’s the future of the West. Larry might consider lending his support.

THE PAINTING


At the National Art Gallery in Cardiff, a husband and wife were
staring at a portrait that had them completely confused.
The painting depicted 3 black men totally naked, sitting on a park
bench.
Two of the figures had black penis', but the one in the middle had a
pink penis.
The curator of the gallery realized that they were having trouble
interpreting the painting and offered his personal assessment.
He went on for over half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual
emasculation of African Americans in a predominately white, patriarchal
society.
'In fact', he pointed out, 'some serious critics believe that the pink
penis also reflects the cultural and sociological oppression experienced by
gay men in contemporary society'
After the curator left, a Welshman approached the couple and said,
Would you like to know what the painting is really about?
''Why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator of the
gallery?', asked the couple.'
Because I'm the bloke who painted the picture, 'he replied.
'In fact, there are no African Americans depicted at all.
They're just three Welsh coal miners

and the guy in the middle went home for lunch.'

I believe negatively gearing was an out by the government to stop building commission housing or at least to supplement the lack of government housing.

If you could trust a government to use the tax offsets of negative gearing to build new government housing it might be a step in the right direction. At least the housing will be government owned unlike private rental housing.
