Open Letter to America from Australia

Dear America,

As one of your closest allies, we cherish our long term relationship. Long may it prevail. We have spilt blood together in the defence of democracy. Australia has always been the first country to sign up to support the US on the battlefield to protect freedom and liberty.

For a bit of perspective, we thought we’d subject what is going on over there to what Aussies call a “pub test.” It is a figure of speech which depicts bar patrons decide what passes as truth or fiction over a beer. After all, a drunk man speaks a sober man’s mind.

From the offset we want to declare we have absolutely no say in how any of you choose to vote. Nor do we want to have a say. Your future should be in your hands, not ours. Although we are struck by how many liberals from other nations demand you vote according to their wishes, not yours.

We hope that November 3rd can deliver a free and fair election where democracy is the only winner. We have our doubts here.

Sometimes a voice who has no say in the outcome can provide perspective. We have no skin in the game. We just hope to provide our view of things.

In Australia, we also suffer the daily musings of a left leaning mainstream media obsessed with clickbait over facts. Nothing as bad as what you have over there but the ideology behind it is the same. Steeped in identity politics and pushing woke causes.

Our journalists, like yours, believe that Twitter is an accurate representation of the majority. Nothing could be further from the truth. We often write that journalistic integrity will only return when the media loves Americans more than they hate Trump. Ours too. What used to be a profession that thrived on facts, now focuses on activism. How many obituaries of slain terrorists read like they were scholars and selfless philanthropists of the highest order?

Watching the VP debate this week, we heard Senator Kamala Harris make the absurd assertion that foreign leaders think more highly of Chinese President Xi Jinping than President Donald Trump. Really?

What many of you may have missed several months ago was that soon after our Prime Minister Scott Morrison proposed an independent investigation into China’s mishandling of COVID-19 outbreak, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) retaliated with tariffs and one senior bureaucrat even went as far as to say Australia waschewing gum stuck to China’s shoe.

Aussies are stoic. To us that was a spit in the face. That annoyed us. We are sure it would rile Americans too. We maybe a small nation but we aren’t a bunch of pushovers.

Unfortunately, up to that date, our political class had long kowtowed to China because of the relatively huge size of the trading relationship with Australia. Expediency was put ahead of principle.

Since coronavirus, many Aussies, including our law makers, have come around to the same philosophy of Trump. All bets are off when it comes to China now. We’ve had enough. We don’t trust the CCP. No one wants to be insulted without reason.

Look, we understand President Trump has an unorthodox style to say the least. He can be petulant at times. He is prone to exaggeration and has a glass jaw. But he gets things done which is ultimately the main aim of his role, no?

Trump must be the only politician in living memory to be condemned for actually keeping his promises.

You don’t have to like Trump. After all who looks to their politicians for moral or spiritual guidance? Yet he is mercilessly attacked every single day by the media which often finds itself peddling false narratives. It seldom apologizes but surely American citizens must be growing tired of story after story about how the orange man is bad.

To us he is a breath of fresh air. No massaged or nuanced comments. Full blunt force. He doesn’t care who he offends. He only looks forward. We totally get that he ruffles feathers. Yet after decades of failed administrations, isn’t he a monster of their own creation? Didn’t they give birth to him? Had they executed on behalf of the American people, Donald Trump would never seen the light of day in the Oval Office.

We post a legitimate question. Can you honestly say that the Left side of politics in America has made a sound argument to the voting public as to why it considers itself the sensible, credible and morally superior alternative via its actions?

The Russia hoax – which now looks like a hit job which goes all the way to the top of the Obama administration – has revealed the sinister side of the establishment.

If this were Australia, no matter which party affiliation one supported, few if any would blindly accept such blatant collusion courtesy of taxpayer funded agencies seeking to pervert the course of democracy. We would demand those responsible be brought to justice and punish the party that indulged in the duplicitous behaviour.

You can be absolutely sure if Biden prevails, #Obamagate will be dead and buried forever. That is the sincere hope for the guilty parties. Who doesn’t delete their phone records by entering their password incorrectly? Who doesn’t take out indemnity insurance if they are following the letter of the law? Is it any wonder Obama is campaigning so hard for a man he took forever to endorse?!

Let’s not forget that Barack Obama even took to using John Lewis’ funeral as an opportunity to make a campaign speech during his eulogy. Crass. Michelle Obama has hardly graced herself talking about her “low grade depression” from her $15m Martha’s Vineyard mansion.

Even if you hate Trump, having him serve four more years to bring corrupt officials in public agencies to heel is the cheapest insurance policy Americans can pay. Failure to do so will mean that you openly authorize federal agencies to defraud you at will to remain in power. Jim Comey and friends never thought they needed to worry about their actions until Hillary Clinton lost 2016. His recent testimony was unbelievable.

We watched the Kavanaugh Senate confirmation circus in disgust. An accomplished man was besmirched in much the same fashion of Clarence Thomas in the 1990s. It was a farce.

The impeachment clown show led by Nancy Pelosi, who grinned her way through the ‘sombre occasion’, was a national embarrassment. Member of Congress, Rep Rashida Tlaib, promised to “impeach the mother f*cker!” What a disgrace to the office. She smiled on her way to cast her vote as if it was some sort of big joke. Recall the embarrassing moment where Adam Schiff chased after Jerry Nadler who stormed the podium to make his own closing remarks. Officials behaving like unruly teenagers.

Perhaps the biggest revelation to come from COVID-19 is not so much the virus but the overt display of power drunk Democrat mayors and governors. They have been borderline despotic and utterly hypocritical. These politicians live by the creed “rules for thee, but not for me!

Most recently, Nancy Pelosi got caught unmasked in a hair salon. Instead of accepting the double standard, she claimed she was set up and sought to legally ruin the business. True colours. Pelosi also showed how out of touch she is by revealing her $20,000 freezer full of boutique ice cream during lockdown when her district is in such squalor.

Who could forget Oregon Gov Kate Brown ordering child protective services on a hair salon owner who wanted to feed her family? What was the connection?

Or LA Mayor Eric Garcetti threatening to cut off the utilities of businesses defying lockdown. How pleased we were to see Californians let off July 4th fireworks in defiance of the order not to.

Or Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan calling CHAZ a “summer of love” until it affected her personally. How we laughed at these protestors demanding supplies from the functional democracy they sought to overthrow.

Perhaps the most disgraceful episode of COVID-19 was the vile reaction from the left wishing death on Trump. Argue all you want about his handling of the pandemic but the Left’s derangement and unsuitability has been on full display. Do people that wish death on others show all the hallmark qualities of leaders capable of uniting a nation?

Never mind the actions of NY Governor Cuomo stuffing nursing homes with infected patients or then NYC Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot cheerleading identity politics and encouraging people to reject Trump’s xenophobia instead of falling back on her own medical expertise. Orange man bad.

Then came the BLM protests.

The George Floyd incident united a nation. The majority of the public were well on side in fighting for justice and equality right up to the point where they ended up being attacked by the mob in restaurants, neighbourhoods, cars or even protecting their homes.

Peaceful protests gave way to looting, arson, carjackings, assault, shootings and violence. Statues were pulled down. Public and private property destroyed and defaced. Were Nancy Pelosi’s “people will do what they do” comments acceptable? Was talking 100 days after the violence started to condemn it when the polls started to swing sincere? Of course not.

How we felt sorry for struggling businesses under the jackboot of draconian lockdowns having to suffer a further kick to the guts, despite being innocent bystanders. The damage will be lasting. Sure BLM leaders might scream that insurance will pay for the looting now but they overlook the reality that premium hikes will all but guarantee they can’t reopen.

Cities that have been run by Democrats for half a century or more ordered their police to stand down. Is it any wonder that wrapping law enforcement in red tape has dire consequences? The fools sitting on the Minneapolis City Council gave us front row seats to witness how crime flourishes when liberal policies are applied. Who knew they’d be forced to reexamine their own self-inflicted wound?

Then liberals want to tell you that Senator Kamala Harris is a credible candidate. She openly sponsored and supported the MFF which has bailed out felons charged with rape, battery and sexually assaulting an 8-yo child. She even praised career felon Jacob Blake and his family, including his anti-Semitic father. That’s right, criminals are now the innocent victims in the minds of Democrats. It is your fault they stole your wallet.

Even worse this has led to a string of activist DAs across America who want to prosecute innocent parties before evidence is even heard. Think of the sinister behaviour of Fulton County DA Paul Howard who is covering up his own unethical behavior by framing cops who acted in the scope of the law he outlined during the arrest of Rayshard Brooks. Never mind that he was drunk, resisting arrest and fired a taser at the police because he knew he was going straight back to prison. No wonder the police unions are supporting Trump.

Think of Jake Gardner who was acquitted of murder in an act of self defence. Soon after an activist DA folded to mob pressure and prosecuted him with manslaughter, Gardner committed suicide.

Then the public was subjected to woke displays by the sporting codes. The NFL, NBA, MLB and others all joined in ramming politics down the throats of fans who had just paid hard earned money to distract themselves from the grind of life. How surprising that the NBA has just realised that lecturing fans is a bad idea and will remove overt displays in the locker room?

Oh to be lectured by Colin Kapernick who openly celebrated July 4th under Obama but lambasted it as a glorification of white supremacy this year. And Disney is going to give this serial victim a contract to produce a docuseries. Don’t even get us started o the hypocrisy of Alyssa Milano.

We don’t pretend that racism doesn’t exist. However when people like Jussie Smollett, Jonathan Lopez and Sabrina Belcher stage hate crime hoaxes we feel that the fight for equality is closer than it has been for decades of people are forced to conjure it. Hate crimes are a fraction of what they were 30 years ago.

Just look at Congresswoman Ilhan Omar who has pledged to dismantle the system. You know, the very system that rescued her from a Kenyan refugee camp and delivered her to the highest levels of government office. Hardly held back by systemic racism, wouldn’t you say?

When Joe Biden says “#YouAintBlack“, “poor kids are just as smart as white kids“, described blacks as “superpredators” in the 1994 crime bill, told Hispanics that their community is far more diverse than blacks or letting you know he is surviving lockdown because a black woman is restacking the grocery shelves, who is the racist? Trump has denounced white supremacy countless times. Listen for yourself.

We could go on and on with countless more examples including Nancy Pelosi’s recent wish to invoke the 25th Amendment. These people will stop at absolutely nothing to gain power. They care not one jot for you. Don’t forget that Nancy Pelosi felt so deeply for the loss of George Floyd that she called him George Kirby. Senator Chuck Schumer got it wrong too and guess what, YouTube has removed the video!

Yet another issue where Trump is 100% correct. Do you want some biased tech giant in control of what it deems you can consume? If these open platforms are taking on editorial decisions on what you are allowed to see, they should lose sanctuary status from prosecution. Surely you should have 100% control of what you view, read or hear without some apparatchik arbitrarily deciding for you.

As the debates have revealed, Joe Biden is a Trojan horse for a radically left agenda.

Your taxes will be raised, the Supreme Court will be packed and the GND is a formality. The Obamagate investigation will be buried and you can be assured the Democrats will embark on a 4-yr revenge fest based on their own.

We aren’t saying Trump is perfect. Far from it. Yet he hasn’t started a war, he’s got NATO to reach into their wallets, signed historic peace deals people like John Kerry said would never happen. He achieved record low unemployment rates for blacks, Hispanics and women. He is about to get pharma prices slashed 90% and is the only candidate that will hold China to account.

This is your country at stake. Ultimately we think that ‘lived experience’ will prevail. We think that Americans want their livelihoods back. They want the streets to be safe. They want honest cops. But they want honest politicians even moreso. They want prosperity. They want to have pride. They don’t want to be made to feel guilty for crimes they didn’t commit to people that didn’t suffer.

Say what you like about Trump, but from 10,000 miles away, none of you should expect a NY property developer to be the cleanest shirt. However the last four years of Democrat derangement have shown they are absolutely unfit to lead. Double standards, hoaxes and scandals backed by a hysteric cheerleading mainstream media.

Like Aussies, we know deep down Americans are a parochial and patriotic bunch. You have so much to be proud of and the last thing you need is to be lectured to by power mad career politicians with so little to show for other than lining their own pockets.

Do you want to die standing on your feet, or live on your knees. Because that is what is on the ballot.

God Bless America.

Regards,

FNF Media

Obamagate about to be declassified?

Grab your popcorn. Forget COVID. This is an election thermonuclear bomb as an issue.

If the released materials are what we think they are, Americans are about to get a front row seat into the complete state-sanctioned deception to ensure the outsider didn’t win in 2016.

Given that Hillary Clinton lost, we’ve already seen Mueller investigators ‘accidentally’ delete their phone records, FBI agents take out indemnity insurance and former FBI director James Comey dance around Senate testimony about pushing doctored evidence to get a FISA warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign.

Richard Nixon was an amateur.

Dan Bongino gives an interesting summary here.

Kayleigh McEnany helps deranged WH press corps to do their jobs properly

Trump’s new Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is doing such a great job with the White House press corps. In this video clip she turns their lack of journalistic integrity back on them by providing a list of questions to pique their curiosity about #Obamagate instead of letting them indulge in their favorite pastime of creating false narratives.

Scandal-less or Scandalous?

The mainstream media have been incessant on pointing out that Barack Obama’s presidency was completely scandal-free, apart from comically making light of his biggest misdemeanour – wearing a tan suit.

Where to start?

The Obama Department of Justice (DoJ) hardly acted in the spirit of its namesake. Nor have many other agencies or departments under his presidency. Some would also criticise the Trump DoJ of same.

Perhaps most noteworthy for us was the ruling by U.S. District Court Justice Andrew S. Hanen which forced Obama DoJ officials to mandatory ethics training over a period of 5 years for willfully ignoring a court order to stop undocumented immigrants from receiving work permits. Hanen claimed he had been misled by DoJ lawyers as to when the Obama administration would implement the directive. Hanen wrote,

The misconduct, in this case, was intentional, serious and material…In fact, it is hard to imagine a more serious, more calculated plan of unethical conduct.

Who could forget Attorney-General Loretta Lynch’s chance meeting with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac in Phoenix just days before she was due to testify about his wife’s handling of classified material over personal emails? Bill Clinton justified it as,

I just wanted to say ‘hello’ to her and I thought it would look really crazy if we were living in a world where I couldn’t shake hands with the Attorney General, you know, when she was right there…Look, it’s 100 degrees out there. Come up and we’ll talk about our grandkids.”

Lynch suggested that they discussed Clinton’s golf game that day, the Orlando nightclub shooting, Brexit and the health of former Attorney General Janet Reno. Sure, the American public can buy that. No one could possibly imagine Hillary Clinton parsed their lips that day.

Or the time the Obama DoJ secretly obtained phone call and email records from the Associated Press (AP). The records, covering all of April and May 2012, covered more than 20 separate phone lines. These records included all outgoing calls of made from work and personal phone numbers of individual AP reporters, as well as the general phone lines of AP bureaus. So much for the constitutional rights of freedom of the press.

Or the debacle of Operation Fast & Furious. This was a plan conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to find the leaders of Mexican drug cartels by selling arms illegally to nefarious dealers in the hopes it would lead back to them. 2,000 weapons went across the border but the ATF admitted they never bothered to track them. One of the guns ended up killing the brother of the former attorney general of the state of Chihuahua. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata were killed by weapons released by the ATF. 300 Mexicans died or were wounded by Fast & Furious guns as well.

In 2012, the House Oversight Committee requested 1,300 pages of key documents it claimed the DOJ had withheld in relation to Fast & Furious and held then AG Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. Obama declared that the documents were protected under executive privilege despite the White House’s stringent denial of involvement. 

Who could forget the National Security Agency’s (NSA) spying scandal? Section 702 empowers the NSA to spy on foreign powers. By doing so it is permitted to retain and use intercepted data that was collected on Americans under strict privacy protections. If any information was wrongly collected it is supposed to be destroyed immediately. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) claimed that Americans were having their information spied upon without a warrant. The NSA admitted that it had been slow to warn other intelligence agencies when such information was wrongly disseminated. It was supposed to warn any agency in possession of such data inside of 5 days. It averaged 19 days with the worst turn around recorded at 130 days.

Obama officials were also caught red-handed monitoring the conversations of members of Congress who opposed the Iranian nuclear deal in 2015. It is consistent with throwing Netanyahu under the bus in his final days of office. 

How soon we forgot the IRS scandal targeting conservative organisations. The IRS was forced to publicly issue a sincere apology to these conservative groups for “heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays.

The outcome of the Linchpins case, which exposed the IRS, revealed that it was wrong to apply federal tax laws based only on an entity’s name, political viewpoints or positions on societal issues. The judge ruled that the IRS must act fairly, and using any form of politically based discrimination in administering the tax code is a violation of First Amendment rights.

The former FBI Director Jim Comey admitted in the Russia probe that he “was overconfident in the procedures that the FBI and Justice had built over 20 years. I thought they were robust enough. It’s incredibly hard to get a FISA. I was overconfident in those…There was real sloppiness, 17 things that either should’ve been in the (FISA) applications or at least discussed and characterized differently. It was not acceptable…I was wrong.

Hardly a scandal-free presidency. The fish rots at the head.

Which brings us to #Obamagate.

What did Obama know and when with respect to the Russia-collusion probe? Why were FISA warrants signed based on the FBI knowing full well it was based on fabricated evidence, including the Steele Dossier, which John Podesta testified was ultimately paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign? Why did then FBI Chief of Counterespionage Peter Strzok talk of insurance policies should Hillary Clinton lose and have a stream of disparaging texts showing his utter contempt of Trump? How could he possibly be independent in his work with such personal bias? Why did Strzok’s lover, Lisa Page state in September 2016 that “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing.” Just an innocent pillow text?

Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell responded to a congressional request yesterday to declassify a list of Obama administration officials who had requested the unmasking of National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn from Nov. 8, 2016 to Jan. 31, 2017. They included,

  1. U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power
  2. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough
  3. Vice President Joe Biden
  4. FBI Director  James Comey
  5. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper
  6. CIA director John Brennan
  7. Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew
  8. Deputy Chief of Mission to Italy and Republic of San Marino Kelly Degnan
  9. U.S. Ambassador to Italy and the Republic of San Marino John R. Phillips
  10. U.S. Treasury Office of Intelligence and Analysis Patrick Conlon
  11. Acting Assistant Treasury Secretary Arthur McGlynn
  12. Acting Deputy Assistant Treasury Secretary Mike Neufeld
  13. Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Sarah Raskin
  14. Under Secretary Treasury Nathan Sheets
  15. Acting Under Secretary Treasury Adam Szubin
  16. U.S. NATO Advisor Robert Bell
  17. U.S. Representative to the NATO Military Committee Vice Admiral John Christenson
  18. U.S. NATO Office of the Defense Advisor Policy Advisor for Russia Lt. Col. Paul Geehreng
  19. U.S. NATO Defense Advisor James Hursh
  20. U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission to NATO Lee Litzenberger (now Ambassador to Azerbaijan)
  21. U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO Ambassador Douglas Lute
  22. U.S. NATO Political Office Scott Parrish
  23. Deputy Secretary of Energy Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall
  24. U.S. NATO Political Advisor Tamir Waser
  25. U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Tefft
  26. U.S. Ambassador to Turkey John Bass
  27. Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Intelligence Integration Michael Dempsey
  28. Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence Stephanie O’Sullivan

Obama’s name is absent. Why so many people from the Treasury? How could so many people from Obama’s inner circle have known about the now exonerated Flynn but not the President? Note these were 28 individual requests rather than a single memo passed between people. Looks from the outside to be an abuse of power by eavesdropping on a political opponent. One of those individuals is now running for President.

On the surface, this surveillance looks like a far more impeachable offence than any Ukrainian quid pro quo nonsense that recently transpired.

Obama’s reaction after Flynn’s acquittal made him sound uncharacteristically offbeat and garbled in his message.

Say what one will about Trump’s character and behaviour but one has to question the ethics of the former administration. Seems more scandalous than scandal-less.
