#hypocrisy

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.

Media worth consuming – a recap of December 2020

My good mate Jonathan Rochford of Narrow Road Capital has compiled a brilliant summary of the recent madness in markets, politics and economics. One could be forgiven for thinking it is a lot like satire. Link here.

California’s Classist Clown

Who knew? Not much more than one week after he was caught red handed violating coronavirus restrictions dining in a fine restaurant with a dozen others including the CEO of a major medical association no less, California Gov Gavin Newsom is talking of far harsher restrictions to prevent another ‘rona outbreak issuing the threat that ICU beds could be over 100% capacity by Christmas.

Perhaps the waiters at the French Laundry know all about tipping points. Newsom knows nothing of the sort.

Rules for thee but not for me.

Oh, and don’t forget Newsom thinks Hollywood is an essential industry. Classist clown.

California Gov Newsom considers Hollywood an essential business

More liberal hypocrisy. So soon after being busted for violating his own rules by dining in a flash restaurant with health association executives no less, California Gov Gavin Newsom has declared Hollywood an essential industry which is not subject to lockdown rules imposed between 10pm and 5am.

What a joke. Then again, Hollywood leans left so they get a pass in California. How typical of the elitist mentality of the Democrat party. Best not waste precious police resources on actors. Far more useful to arrest paddle boarders social distancing 200m away from anyone else and threaten them with 6 months jail.

We prefer the words of South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem who said, “who am I to tell you whether your business is essential or not?

Rules for thee but not for me.

Institutional Hypocrisy

Rules for thee, but not for me. The left talk of institutional racism incessantly. Perhaps they need to talk about institutional hypocrisy instead. Far more compelling evidence, especially during coronavirus.

Why the Mute Button will benefit Trump in the final debate

Problem solved? The debate moderators intend to have a mute button in the forthcoming debate to avoid interruption experienced in the first debate.

It sounds wonderful in principle, but we believe if the moderator is of sufficient ability, she shouldn’t require technological assistance to fall back on if her biases seek to stifle robust debate through balanced questioning and reasonable time to answer and redirect.

One can only imagine how fairly the mute button will be applied in the final show off between Trump and Biden on October 22nd given we know that the moderator, Kristen Welker, is staunchly in the Democrat camp.

We are sure when the microphone cut offs are tallied, Trump will outscore Biden on a 10:1 scale, if not more.

We have no doubt that Trump is the more likely of the two to interject but we think it will work in Trump’s favour to be cut off because we know that the deranged mainstream media will openly celebrate and applaud the idea of suppressing the free speech of someone they disagree with on a whim.

We don’t think that will play well to level headed Americans who want to hear and see the reactions of both candidates when pinned on the ropes. A good moderator would seek that type of courage under fire.

Unfortunately, the debate will likely end up being 3 on 1. Softballs will be tossed at Biden and hand grenades lobbed at Trump.

Should Trump leave the stage after being cut off countless times, we won’t be the least bit surprised. He will prove the point of just how biased the moderator was and how she relished the ability to muzzle the most powerful man in the world to feed her own derangement. She’ll prove his point about free speech. Never forget Reagan slammed a moderator for threatening to cut the mic in 1980.

If he leaves, the media will divert all attention to Trump as to why he did so and prove back to their faces that they have absolutely zero interest in objectivity other than to justify using authoritarian cancel culture tactics to silence and humiliate him.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Best they put this on full display.

Best montage you’ll see all day

What a pack of total frauds. This montage exposes the utter hypocrisy of the Democrats.

In 2020 they are foaming at the mouth to prevent a SCOTUS nomination when in 2016 they were 100% for it.

Beyond this hypocrisy, is this idea that if the Dems get power in the Senate they’ll look to increase the SCOTUS bench to 11 and ram in liberal judges to skew the judiciary.

So on the one hand, Democrats are saying RBG’s dying wishes to hold her vacancy til after the election should be respected. On the other hand they are ignoring her very own words with respect to numbers on the bench:

“…nine seems to be a good number; it’s been that way for a long time” adding that “court packing” was a “bad idea.

Minny City Council panics as crime surges

Who ever would have guessed?? How could the Minneapolis City Council predict that calls to defund the police would lead to a 55%YoY surge in arson? Or murder, carjackings, robberies or assaults???

These woke Democrats thought “reimagining the police” would just work. What happened to the army of social workers who had the skills to reason with an irate 350lb armed narcotics dealer chasing up accounts receivable from his financially constrained customers?

Minny City Council President Lisa Bender, who led the charge in the initial calls to defund the MPD, complained that the law enforcement officers were being defiant by not answering the calls of constituents.

As we pointed out in June, Lisa Bender tweeted,

If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?

So no Lisa, three months later they want more police.

“Policy wonk” council member Phillipe Cunningham said,

What I am sort of flabbergasted by right now is colleagues, who a very short time ago were calling for abolition, are now suggesting we should be putting more resources and funding into MPD.”

Who knew?!

Media response to same comment made by Trump & Biden

As ever the media left out the context of the conversation with Bob Woodward which was that Trump “didn’t want people to panic” when it deliberately edited the comment to say that he “downplayed the virus.”

Trump said virtually the same thing in an April 2020 press conference at the White House. Why no outrage then? Ahh, because there is an election that needs narratives to switch away from riots, looting and civil unrest to a virus where deaths have been largely caused in Democrat run cities and states.

How strange that Joe Biden said in February, “it’s not a time to panic about coronavirus.

Orange man bad. Whatever Trump says is bad. Total silence about Biden. Who knew?

Perhaps the most telling display of “minimal panic” over coronavirus has been the behaviour of so many Democrat mayors, governors and members of congress who have broken so many of the laws they proclaim is so dangerous for the people who elected them. Surely if there was a need to panic, these politicians wouldn’t be sneaking off to get their hair blown out or reopen gyms inside public buildings while the rest are closed to the public.

CNN has been so worried about coronavirus that it made a point to admonish Trump for the lack of diversity on the response team.

Make no mistake, this will be 60 straight days of mudslinging. This type of muck will be churned out by the mainstream media non-stop in order to prevent Trump from reelection. Last week it was comments from anonymous sources that Trump had disparaged fallen soldiers as “suckers and losers.” Even John Bolton, who hates Trump, denied he ever said it and he was there. Had Trump mentioned it, what an explosive chapter for his book.

Who knew that 86% of people polled think that the media is divisive. The worst numbers in living memory.

Queensland Double Standards Act 2020

Posted by Queensland Senator Matt Canavan.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has shown nothing but egregious double standards. Her government threw on the full works for AFL players from Victoria at taxpayers expense after the state secured the AFL grand final. Several players returned the favour by getting into a brawl.

However 12-yo kids looking to spend time with their families would be subject to ridiculously strict quarantine provisions.

We so hope Queenslanders have the good sense to turf this government in 54 days.
