Elections

Says the man who bought a waterfront property

Says the man who hung out with his mate who owns an airline, train and cruise line on the back of a gas guzzling motor launch.

Perhaps Obama should have mentioned President Biden’s new climate czar who has his own private jet, 12 cars, 6 houses and 2 yachts?

We don’t begrudge the wealth to obtain such items but we don’t think it lends well to sanctimoniously lecturing soccer mums, who drop their kids off at practice in second-hand SUVs, about their irresponsible behaviour. Or bashing the lawnmower man whose gas guzzler taxes on his work pick-up truck go to subsidize the Tesla of his customer who pays him to keep his garden tidy.

All the while the Paris Accord is a protection racket for China which can pollute to its heart’s desire. EU countries can burn wood chips which have a higher carbon footprint than brown coal yet get to count it as a zero emission renewable as a replanted tree which will take 100 years to grow will compensate even though we’re all supposed to die within 12 years?!?

How ironic that America’s carbon emissions fell under Trump. Just shows that you don’t have to join a club of group thinkers to get better results than them. Alas, in today’s world empty tokenism is a thing.

The rank hypocrisy. Watch the hips not the lips.

Australia Day – feel free to have your own minute’s silence

It is that time of the year again. Australia Day. Time for the woke brigade to shame any Aussies thinking of firing up the BBQ and sinking a few beers with friends and family. If some people don’t want to celebrate it, then they’re free not to. But what is the point of making people feel guilty for something they didn’t do to people they never knew 150 years before many were born?

Our local member in the House of Reps, Zali Steggall OAM, has called for a minute’s silence on Australia Day. By all means, if she feels that way, she should go right ahead and make her personal statement. Just quit the vacuous virtue signaling.

We’ll dismiss it with the same out-of-touch “Roadmap to Zero” program she has running in Warringah. You know, the climate change virtue signaling page where well over 98.5% of households in the electorate haven’t even bothered to sign up, despite her insistence that the gas guzzling SUV drivers of Mosman elected her to put a stop to climate change.

When are we going to drop this shaming every year? Why is Cricket Australia (CA) now buying into woke antics, especially that of a foreigners violent Marxist group? Can anyone in CA management point to any data or conclusive studies which prove the lives of indigenous Australians will improve by dropping the name or the date? Surely all 365 days of the year should be deemed invasion day if January 26th is considered so reprehensible.

Cricket Australia’s Mel Jones said, “We’ve got five Indigenous players playing those games and a lot of Indigenous fans that come to the cricket, we just want to make this space as safe and inclusive as possible.”

What could be more inclusive than watching cricket over a few beers? Surely CA’s focus should be on winning after the drubbing against India but toxic identity politics is front and centre. Wallabies anyone?

Honestly, can CA identify the fans by name who feel triggered when they voluntarily pay hard-earned coin to watch cricket matches? The Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island flags adorn major cricket venues. Every game. Is that not inclusive?

But why can’t those who want to change the date get the facts straight on Australia Day?

Australia Day is celebrated on the 26th January for a very good reason.

The First Fleet arrived in Botany Bay on the 20th of January and an expedition party was sent to Port Jackson on the 22nd of January with the rest of the fleet following on the 26th of January. So the “day” Australia was technically invaded was almost a week prior.

On January 26th, 1949, Australian nationality came into existence when the Nationality and Citizenship Act 1948 was enacted. That was the day we were first called Australians and allowed to travel with passports as Australians rather than British subjects. Hence Australia Day was officially born and celebrated.

Under the Nationality Act 1920 (Cth), all Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders born after January 1, 1921, gained the status of British subjects. In 1949, therefore, they automatically became Australian citizens under the Nationality and Citizenship Act 1948.

So for all the protestors and virtue signaling groups trying to win woke points, perhaps they should spend that minute silence learning the actual dates of what they’re protesting.

Maybe Aussies can strike a deal. Will the activists promise that they’ll stop protesting forever on this issue if the date is changed to one of their choosing? Of course they can’t. Moving the date would embolden the mob to push more grievance politics. Remember that many of the protestors don’t represent the majority of the people they claim to represent. As is usually the case with most protestors.

The overwhelming majority of Aussies are fair minded people aware of their history. The government is so aware that those minority groups are paid 6% of the national budget, twice the level of their representative population. Every year. Shame on Cricket Australia. Stick to the core product and stop telling the fans how they should participate when they part with cold hard cash.

Petition to change name of Glasgow Prestwick Airport to Joe Biden

A petition has been doing the rounds to change the name of Glasgow Prestwick Airport to ‘Joe Biden’ as former President Trump often uses the terminal due to its close proximity to his golf resort.

Should every city, town or airport that hosts a Trump property nearby change the name of an important landmark? Maybe rename the street of the entrance to Trump’s resort to Joe Biden Blvd? Should balloons shaped in the form of Trump in diapers be flown permanently above the town square just to rub it in his face until he is no longer alive?

As much as the left hate Donald Trump, when will the derangement end?

Yet it isn’t just about him. This isn’t a joke. It’s an extension of cancel culture which seeks to punish those the mob disagrees with.

My Pillow founder, Michael J Lindell, has had several large retail stores stop selling his merchandise because of his support of Trump. Many other brands have caved to the mob for the same reason – cowardice.

Instead of letting individual consumers decide for themselves, weak corporates are kneeling at the altar of wokeness, afraid to be cancelled by a bunch of fringe activists who aren’t likely to be customers anyway. We hope My Pillow sales boom online. Or will USPS, FedEx or UPS refuse to ship his goods down the line?

We were astonished to see a group of companies publicly denounce the Capitol riots. For the love of God, when people saw the despicable act of a few people overestimating their agency, did the names Toyota, GM or Pfizer pop into the heads of anyone as being related in any way? We’re guessing not but why did these corporates self-appoint themselves as moral guardians? Goodyear is hardly a bastion of balance when its HR pushed radical leftist training completely unrelated to the tyre business.

Why didn’t the PGA grow a spine and say that Trump’s course would provide the best golf. Do they honestly believe they’d lose a single fan? Pushing back works as proven by RedBull and Goya.

While the Prestwick Airport stunt might appear like a decent Scottish joke it is nothing more than an extension of cancel culture. For as much as the left scream about equality, compassion and fairness, they seem to want to hound Trump to his grave. Guess what, this will only embolden his supporters who are growing ever more weary of the deliberate suppression of free speech and ability to have a voice.

To the cancel culture, unity only comes from coerced conformity and every time a corporate caves, it emboldens them to go in even harder.

Be careful what you wish for.

Take your pick

Take your pick.

Senator Chuck Schumer implied the Capitol riots ranked up there with Pearl Harbor. Arnold Schwarzenegger likened it to Kristallnacht. Now ex FBI Director Jim Comey thinks it was a Chernobyl.

If a true disaster hits America, what will it be compared to?

Good to see the media make absolutely no effort to issue an “are you serious?” question to these audacious claims.

As complicit as ever, await all the ‘Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are saviors who make Mother Teresa’s achievements look as impactful as a highway cafe diner waitress pouring free refills’ puff pieces from the media. Reach for the nearest bucket.

The media will preach unity while they simultaneously flip the bird to 74million Americans who they disagree with as the problem dividing America.

We wish the Biden Administration the very best of luck for all the right reasons but we fear his agenda will drive an even larger wedge which will send the country over the abyss when it comes to free, open and inclusive discourse.

Trump was the catalyst. Americans have just reappointed the cause. Buyers remorse.

Another reason I don’t read The Ecommunist (in pictures)

There was a time when I used to enjoy a business trip abroad. That would enable me to hoover every word in The Economist. From cover to cover. It was great reading. And informative. I always knew I would learn something interesting. Punchy journalism that was well researched and entertained both sides of an argument.

Now it is little more than an activist rag. It hates Trump (even before he took office). Every second article seems to be about climate change or another social justice topic du jour. Anti-Brexit. Anti-America First. Anti-coal. Anti-Tory. Pro-China. Pro-Corbyn. Pro 16-yo kids getting voting rights. Pro-globalism. Check out these covers over the last 5 or so years. 

If one thing rings absolutely true, we should never judge a magazine by its cover. Hint: And The Economist has always published excellent covers.

The socialist ‘Red Flag‘ magazine should be livid that The Economist has encroached on its turf. From the top of the journalism totem pole towards the bottom in a little over a decade, exacerbated by Trump’s term in office. 

WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin celebrates America Last

So wonderful to see the true colours of the left.

Recall WaPo opinion writer, Jennifer Rubin, demanded that Walter Reed Hospital be defunded after Trump convalesced there.

What makes her think her opinion is valid in any context about the outgoing administration given the chronic Trump Derangement Syndrome she suffers from? The self-belief in her comments are worthy of addition to the DSM-VI.

This was her other tweet highlighting the utter impartiality in her own mind.

Journalism has been dead for the last 4 years. It will be a rotting corpse for the next 4.

We await all the mainstream media puff pieces on all the America Last policies that Biden will introduce – Rejoin Paris, re-sign a deal with Iran, path the citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants, $15min wages etc – as good for the country.

Media already holding new administration to account

While the mainstream media released starving lions every time a Trump administration official was interviewed, just look at the fluffy miniature poodles set upon VP-elect Kamala Harris in this catch up.

Surely America has been waiting to know more about Harris’ sneakers than what she will do with her vote in the hung Senate!

Oops

We had forgotten the time when Hollywood celebs asked Electoral Colleges to ignore who the people casted ballots for and vote their conscience instead. The media would have you think the only ones trying to overturn election results are Republicans.

Why is it that Hollywood elites think ordinary people are craving their respect?

Banks & Insurers lecture customers on morals

Baseball legend Curt Schilling has claimed that insurance company, AIG, has cancelled his policy over tweets he made about the recent events on the Capitol.

Schilling stated he had a AAA rating and no claims for 17 years.

Aren’t insurance companies supposed to assess risk? Did Schilling have a major endorsement contract with AIG? If so, we’d understand. If not, isn’t he an anonymous customer among millions?

What relevance does an insurance policy have to do with a customer expressing first amendment rights? Has AIG gone through the Twitter accounts of all of its policy holders to check they have not said anything similar to Schilling? If not, would be highly discriminatory, no? Should he sue?

Wasn’t AIG found guilty of entering into sham transactions in order to inflate the reserves and to conceal losses in 2005? Didn’t Schilling, a taxpayer, indirectly bail out AIG post the GFC?

Deutsche Bank has also moved to end its association with Donald Trump. Ironic, that a bank which has been fined repeatedly for unethical behavior such as money laundering thinks it has an opportunity to save its skin by signaling it has repented. Will a flood of customers open accounts as a sign of appreciation? Probably not.

Fascinating that – bank worth 8% of its peak value, is lecturing customers about morals when it has a self-documented history of being a bank for the Third Reich, including the provision of funds to build the Auschwitz extermination camp.

Since when did corporates self-appoint themselves as moral arbiters of their customers individual constitutionally enshrined liberties? Will customer social media profiles now form part of the loan application documents? “Sorry sir, your credit rating is outstanding but the application has been rejected for something you posted when 13 years old.” Got it?

More corporate cowardice masquerading as courage. This is nothing more than companies showing they are going out of their way to make public sacrifices on the altar of the Marxist fringe mobs in the hope they become the last to be cancelled. What a joke.

We never thought it imaginable but today, corporate PR departments have less spine than internal compliance officers.
