John McTernan must surely be an Abbott plant


Because you couldn’t do a worse job of destroying Julia Gillard and Australian Labor if you tried.

At best, the PM’s drive-by of Rooty Hill was an absolute disaster. The private dinner with the look-alike mummy bloggers… looked bad.

LOL, it seems even Juliar is fed up with him, attacking 457 visas and all that. :roll:

FNPM: The Dark Night Rises special ed.


Interesting week to sit back on. PM Gillard claims her innocence, pisses off overseas, and a bunch of union thugs defy the Supreme Court, and stage their illegal blockades.

Then in comes former union heavyweight, shortarse Bill Shorten billing himself as some kind of independent umpire.

What a fukn joke.

FWA: what a crock that is. The ABCC was doing a stellar job. So much so, Gillard made sure that one was got rid of a few months ago before the looming shitstorm hit shore.

What a crock.

Ho hum. At least we have US politics getting interesting again.

Clint Eastwood nailed it best. Politicians are our employees (always remember that), and if an employee isn’t doing their job, you gotta let ‘em go. And a lawyer in Office? Shit. With 23 million unemployed and the bloke running up $5 trillion in debt in three and a half years, best give a businessman a shot.

Shifting gears a bit – and carpe and his missus might take issue – but Japan has been testing the waters again recently.

They’re taking on China, Russia, and South Korea over island territorial disputes whilst also talking to the North Koreans for the first time in four years.

Up north, they want back some islands the Russians grabbed after WWII.

Down south, they want some islands China has nowadays.

In the East Sea (you wanna call it Sea of Japan? LBB just fried one of your nuts.), they want Dokdo aka Takashima aka the Lian Court Rocks.

What’s interesting about the last two, is that there are huge reserves of hydrocarbons surrounding both chunks.

Now consider that with Japan’s push to move their self-defence military beyond those capabilities and it starts getting interesting.

(BTW, Korea will unleash everything but the kitchen sink on Japan if they have a go at Dokdo. They’ve put up with more than 1000 years of Japanese attacks. Do not underestimate how Korea feels about Dokdo.)

Speaking of having had a gut, it’s looking that way re Israel vs Iran. It’s really coming to a head. FFS, Iran really wants to build that bomb. Obama ain’t doing shit. Don’t even bother with the EU. In one sense, Israel should be reassured. Exactly. What will Obambi and those Eurotards do?

Ha!

And yet the prize wise guy, sorry… GAL, wants to set her useless carbon dioxide trace gas tax to the EU baloney index.

You didn’t have to, Julia.

You’ve done enough already to kill the mining boom.

I’m guessing she’ll blame Abbott. Or Bush.

But hey. Let’s talk about something good.

OK. Something good is Smartfones. If you don’t have one, then… well.

Scanning documents, instant chat, TV, movies, weather, porn.

You name it.

GPS navigation, any internet surfing you want, even the capacity to call someone.

Audio, video, stereo, 5.1

Well, it’s understood we all hate Apple now for the bullshit they pulled on Samsung. Won’t go on about that one…

In the meantime, LG have thrown even the kitchen sink at their latest, the Optimus G.

A quick check, and this brutal baby blows the Galaxy S3 outta the creche, and Apple, well, TBH I don’t see much happening by October.

You didn’t hear it from me, but the LG execs are very confident yet also very anxious.

Why?

Because this smartphone, the Optimus G, blows everything outta the water…

But if it doesn’t sell, they’re fucked.

Not necessarily monetarily fucked but fucked fucked.

They threw everything at this. LG Chem for the battery (40% better), LG this, LG that… screen tech, all the shit LG does. Yes. They nuked the phone.

The phone is a behemoth.

That said, I’ve been telling them, begging them almost – PLEEEAAASE! – after service! support! upgrades! (Jelly bean!), promotion?

!!!

Currently on Samsung Galaxy SII, because they’re just so damn reliable.

Reliable.

I suspect the galaxy s3 is, too. Am looking forward to those reports, LG. GRRRR! You have a lot of trust to win back, (AHHHHHLOT!!!) and now… you have a chance.

Tweets to the PM


Context.

Sorry, couldn’t resist…

SRSLY. That’s all she’s got? A typo???

UPDATE

Via Larry Pickering where I found the link, Yahoo asks, “Do you think Julia Gillard still has questions to answer over her time at Slater and Gordon?”

Not a scientific poll by any means, but JFTR, at the time I submitted my “yes” vote, a whopping 77% of people agreed. That’s significantly above the 45-55 odd 2PP vote. In effect, only Labor’s paltry primary vote voted “no”… a bit less actually.

Twenty-four questions that do need answering, despite a certain PM’s “hyperbowl”.

Thank goodness the mining boom might be over


Finally.

RESOURCES Minister Martin Ferguson has declared the end of the mining boom, following the shelving by BHP Billiton of its Olympic Dam mine expansion.

OK, so people will lose their jobs, families will be affected. But those families shouldn’t worry about what they’ll eat for dinner, or how the kids’ education will be paid for, or where they’ll sleep that night.

Rather, they should think of themselves as, now, part of the Solution whereas before, they were part of the Problem. As they withdraw that Centrelink welfare cash, a warm inner glow should be felt, bright with the knowledge that the planet is being saved.

When the planet will actually be saved, how we’ll ever know, and when we’ll be told by the authorities is an argument for another time, but to be clear, when your house is foreclosed and your belly rumbles, fret not, and feel the positive Gaia energy flowing into your hearts from literally millions of Australians who care for the earth.

Much praise, of course, goes to both the current and former Prime Ministers of Australia, Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd, respectively. Without their foresight, their vision – and we are of course talking about the extra mining tax, the belated carbon tax, and not to mention the myriad of other reassuring regulations recently implemented – the earth’s salvation could have been delayed by years, or worse, never have manifested.

Footnote: And a little added bonus is that those affected families will no longer have to worry about the rightful condemnation extolled by Wayne Swan, our Treasurer of the Year.

The Gillard transcripts: hardly indemnifying


You know I’ve actually got a case of writers’ block. Have just been sitting here watching and listening to a mini plastic Australian flag blowing and scratching against the wall here in Korea, my second home, as the cool air from the fan blows upon it.

Trying to soak in this and that and a few other things…

To have even those links published is taking on a huge risk, against a government stacked with former leftist lawyers and unionists; juxtaposed to calls for tighter media regulation amid Australia’s first ever “media inquiry” into a free press.

We edge along a precipice today.

More to come. Let me think about it for a tic. Hope you understand.

And “more to come”? How to say it. You know what I mean.

Them’s fightin’ words, Julia… allegedly


First, she has allegedly gone an accused alleged bloggers, who in the most part are allegedly just people with alleged day jobs and a bit of alleged passion and concern, of “gender-based” attacks.

Yep. Allegedly that’s OK. But what does “gender based attacks” even allegedly mean? And JFTR, when was the last time before this week anyone had allegedly heard the word, “scurrilous”? Is the next Pirates of the Caribbean going to be, in alleged fact, “Pirates of the alleged water cooler at the alleged Parliament House”?

Whatever that allegedly means, something’s got the allegedly so-called shagger Thomson all allegedly fired up again… allegedly.

CRAIG Thomson has declared Fair Work Australia is living in “a dream land” if it attempts to prosecute him over union rorts…

And then, this… after all.

JULIA Gillard admitted to law firm Slater & Gordon during an internal probe that she should have opened a file for the controversial legal work that she had done for her then client and boyfriend, union boss Bruce Wilson.

Standard practice would require a file being opened lest one want to defraud their own law firm… hypothetically speaking, of course, but not allegedly.

Allegedly, Gillard and her alleged Co. have had an alleged Pow Wow allegedly over the alleged night and might allegedly come out today, allegedly Wednesday, with their metaphorical alleged gloves allegedly off.

Sorry, can’t print that quote. You know, allegations and all.

PS Andrew Bolt, I love your work but you were too harsh on Larry Pickering.

GillardGate: the Lefty luvvies are getting really nasty today


Take this from the Courier Mail’s (a Murdoch rag, ha!) Paul Syvret. The bloke is frothing at the mouth.

First it starts with a picture-tells-1000-words cartoon of a menacing Opposition Leader Tony Abbott flinging mud… conveniently forgetting the fact the actual allegations themselves have come from those on the Left, including former Labor Attorney General and current labor MP Robert McClelland as well as AWU heavyweights such as Bob Kernohan and former AWU national secretary Ian Cambridge who was even made a judge by Gillard. And let’s not forget half of this can’o’worms was opened by none other than major Lefty lawyer Harry Nowicki!

But no. Syvret kicks in the boot foam thong elsewhere.

LARRY Pickering. James Ashby. Godwin Grech.

And then… hints! Oooo booga booga!

Yep. Never mind the cases surrounding or linked to each man are completely separate from each other, good ol’ Paul conveniently links them together.

Must be a vast right wing conspiracy.

Is there nothing funnier than the paranoid fact-free, leftist mind when backed into a corner??

Some other apologist – ahh, yes, another Courier Mail luvvie, Dennis Atkins, went and called Larry Pickering a “soft-porn cartoonist”.

Really, Dennis? :eek:

But we should probably mellow the harshy on Atkins and Syvret. After all, despite their best efforts, the QLD ALP has been reduced to a mere seven seats.

Meh, no. Not when crap like Syrvet’s muck-racking is being passed off as reasoned opinion.

The little grub has had the hide to bring up stuff from the past that actually WAS cleared (laughed out of town, thrown out of court, resolved) and then has the hide to attest to the following:

But it would be grubby to dredge up old and unsubstantiated smears of decades past like that purely to smear a political opponent wouldn’t it?

Yes, Paul. I guess it would be.

A [Labor] document calls on staffers to find details on their opponents’ “younger days”…

That’s gotta smart every morning…

The bloke is clutching at straw man arguments, and is a total, desperate hypocrite.

And who should Paul really be all pissy pants at? The people he attacked or perhaps, some other folks?

Poor Paul. Still hasn’t got it that this isn’t a left/right issue; that maybe it’s a few on the left trying to save the once proud ALP from destruction.

PS Conveniently, they’ve turned off comments for legal reasons, and with the way things are, that can be understood… however Paul Syvret sounds like someone who’d have turned them off anyway.

UPDATE

And yet even lower the desperate stoop.
Sexist, racist, homophobic, religious nut, zealot, etc. etc…
What other BWAHAism can these fools come up with?
