Having a leg on the Trump Train was everything but in vain.

Having a leg on the Trump Train was everything but in vain.

American politics is something that I never really was interested in. Their system compared to the Westminster system is confusing and this is merely due to my ignorance. As a right wing advocate I have always leaned towards the Republican Party rather than the Democrats. I believe in low taxes, less spending and more protection of borders. In saying that I do believe in government assistance to the most vulnerable in our society. What we have seen in America and around the world, are leaders who have dismissed these beliefs and have only pushed agenda’s according to whoever has donated the most to their election campaign. The 2016 Presidential Election campaign offered a real alternative to the status quo of politics, Hillary Clinton was seen to represent the establishment whilst Donald Trump in the eyes of many political commentators represented the ‘forgotten people’. Never in my time have we seen two presidential candidates that had complete opposition views on issues, mind you I am only young.

Hillary Clinton is a polished politician with many decades of political ‘wisdom’ and ‘astuteness’, her husband is a former President and Hillary Clinton herself was a lawyer. This provided the Clinton Campaign both pro’s and negatives. Pro in that she has had experience in government and as a ‘leader’ but negative in that the electorate saw her as a typical politician.
Donald Trump isn’t a politician, he is a businessman, a multimillionaire and a reality tv star.
On face value Donald Trump appeared to be a ‘Clive Palmer’ of US politics and at times I agreed with this notion. Under the bedrock of this idea the electorate felt that they needed change, and like many countries around the world this change is growing; you can only look at the rise of UKIP, Gert Wilders Party and in Australia, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation.

I had a leg on the Trump train because of three reasons.
Firstly, as mentioned earlier, I believe in three principles;
1. Low Taxes
2. Low Spending (whilst protecting the most vulnerable)
3. Strong Border Protection
Unfortunately Hillary Clinton and the Democrats have never held these beliefs. The Democrats like the Australian Labor Party believe in higher taxes to be able to afford more social programs rather than empowering people to find work and earn a living. As Australia’s former Prime Minister Tony Abbott once said “..the best form of welfare is a job.” This is something the left no matter where you are in the world does not believe in.
In regards to Border Protection, this clearly has been an issue in America, like it is currently in most Western Countries, the only candidate that addressed this issue regardless of how extreme it is which in my opinion isn’t that extreme, was Trump.
Automatically I was compelled towards the trump factor.
Second reason why I had a leg on the Trump train is because around the world the media have been taken over by left-wing liberal socialists who kept down-playing the rise of support for Trump. We saw this during the Brexit campaign. As a result of this bias I felt that supporting trump would be putting the middle finger up to the chardonnay latte sipping socialists.
Thirdly, the Western World needs change, and given that United States of America are the leaders of the Western World it is important that this change starts with them. The fact that Trump now is President it makes it easier for people to vote for an alternative political party or candidate. It sends a message to the electorate, regardless of country, that it is okay to vote for UKIP, it is okay to vote for One Nation, it is okay to vote for Gert Wilde. This is a game changer.

These reasons why I had a leg on the Trump train clearly has resonated across America. I was over in New York during the election. All media outlets, including the ultra right-wing Fox News even thought Trump wasn’t going to win prior to the closing of the Polls. What we have seen is a revolution. The electorate wants action, they want change, they want to be listened to. This is a wake up call to both the media and our political elites that the system they have put in, under the right circumstances, can actually backfire on them. People Power.

The biases of GetUp! #getup #ausvotes

GetUp! claim to be impartial when it comes to politics. According to their website it states

“Our work is driven by our values, not party politics. GetUp is, and always has been, an independent organisation.”

Then why is it that they are campaigning against right wing politicians and have come out to support Nick Xenophon and Glenn Lazarus?  They have released how to vote cards for the Senate and key lower house seats. They have also asked for volunteers to help them on election day.

GetUp! is a left wing activists arm of Labor, Greens and other leftwing lunatic fringe groups, it’s about time there is a real alternative activist group that caters for centre right politics. When will GetUp! admit that they are not an independent organisation but merely lap dogs for the leftist elite?

Time to strengthen the Commonwealth! #brexit #commonwealth

Australia can benefit greatly from UK’s decision to exit the European Union but it would need balls from both leaders of retrospective countries. Once the United Kingdom finally takes the shackles off, placed by members of the EU, it will have an opportunity to strengthen the Commonwealth and be a leader on the world stage.

Fifty three (53) countries are members of the Commonwealth from Africa, Asia, Caribbean & Americas, Europe and the Pacific region. Leaders of these countries now have an opportunity to work with the United Kingdom to bring about better free trade deals as well as the possibility of free movement of peoples.
Tory leader contender, Boris Johnson, once flagged an opportunity for countries such as Canada, Australia and New Zealand to have a visa free migrant bloc. This would be great news for young Australians who want to work and live in the UK and vice verser.

The recent referendum for #brexit is fantastic news and whilst I have always conceded that there will be short term pain, there will be long term gains such as strengthening the Commonwealth. Having a strong Commonwealth means that republicans such as Malcolm Turnbull will need to argue more strongly for a case to become a republic. Well done Britain!

Is One Nation, Australia’s UKIP?

When the Liberal Party knifed Tony Abbott last year they should have known that it would create controversy amongst the rank and file conservatives who pay $100 a year to be Party members. They should have also known that non party members who lean towards the right would also be disgruntled to see a Malcolm Turnbull resurrection. Unfortunately they believed that Malcolm Turnbull, despite alienating the right, would attract those on the left and subsequently those on the right would still vote Liberal because let’s be honest, do we want a Labor Government? Little did the Liberal Party elite know that someone, a blast from the past, a nagging former Liberal and a figurehead for the right was working tirelessly to reform her political party and provide an alternative to the two major parties. Pauline Hanson and her One Nation Party.

Pauline Hanson became famous in 1996 when she stood up and spoke what the majority were thinking, she formed Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party in 1997 but failed to retain her seat in 1998 Federal Election but her party gained one senate seat in Queensland. The Queensland based Party gained 11 seats in State Parliament, 8 more seats than the Liberal Party, the Liberals had a measly 3 seats. In Western Australia in 2001 it gained 3 upper house seats and produced 3 excellent MLC’s. Problems arose for One Nation with infighting rife in all state divisions of the Party and ultimately it destroyed itself from within. Last year, Pauline Hanson took over the reigns of the Party and rebrand it with a new colourful Logo. It has produced policies, or broad policy statements if we want to get technical that doesn’t just talk about Immigration. Pauline Hanson has managed to improve her public speaking skills and has managed to get with the times with the use of social media and acquiring a plane which has the party logo on it, not as big as Clive Palmer’s plane though. Pauline has also obtained a vehicle which is heavily signed, great form of advertising. Pauline Hanson has been invited on many news programs such as Paul Murray Live, Today Show, Sunrise and has been heard on many radio stations. It’s safe to say Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Political Party is back and is ready to fill that void the Liberal Party has created by knifing Tony Abbott. The question remains though, can Pauline Hanson do it? Can One Nation ultimately rise to be the third major conservative voice in Australian Politics? In other words, is One Nation the UKIP of Australia?

As mentioned in previous posts we have seen a rise in the number of right-wing political parties such as:

  • Rise Up Australia
  • Australian Liberty Alliance
  • Katters Australia Party
  • Australia First
  • Hinch Justice Party
  • Jacquie Lambie Network
  • and more! 

The difference between these political parties and One Nation is Pauline Hanson. Pauline Hanson is a great figurehead for One Nation, her brand has been around since 1996 and the party gained a lot of electoral support. It has been proven without Pauline Hanson the party failed to continue to sustain their electoral successes.
There has been talk that many disgruntled Liberals have gone over to the newly created Australian Liberty Alliance but unfortunately they have not gained much media attention unlike Hanson therefore it would be hard to see ALA as a potential third major conservative party, this leaves One Nation on top.

The issue now is can Pauline Hanson’s One Nation continue to rise? In order to cement themselves to be that third major conservative force it is imperative that Pauline Hanson is elected into the Senate in Queensland. If she is elected into the Senate, it will give One Nation Political Party some focus, a means for people to join. At the moment they are classified as a micro party, with a member of parliament, people will see that One Nation has potential and purpose. If Pauline Hanson fails to win a senate seat, I think it could be over for One Nation as an organisation unless they remain focus and on top of the issues especially if Malcolm Turnbull or Bill Shorten remain as leaders of their retrospective parties.

I see great things for One Nation, the knifing of Tony Abbott and the infighting amongst the factions within the Liberal Party is a blessing in disguise for Australia as it does open the door for a third major conservative political party. It makes sense for One Nation to fill that void as it has already been established, has community recognition, has a figurehead and a potential youth movement called Young Nation, which can be reformed. It all comes down to whether or not Hanson can gain that senate seat.

The Greens attack Paramedics and Firies!

The Federal Budget was handed down on 3rd May 2016, and without going into too much detail, one news article got my attention. The big problem with the $80k tax cut.
The budget will see income tax bracket increase from $80,000 to $87,000 which will, according to the news article, provide an extra $315 per year to those who earn that amount.

The interesting thing that caught my eye was the Greens MP Adam Bandts comments that those who earn over $80k are wealthy.

“Greens MP Adam Bandt has slammed the Government for offering this relief to wealthy Australians while ignoring those who need it. We don’t need it. Ordinary Australians do and they miss out in this Budget,  he said.”

So Adam, you think Paramedics, Nurses, Police and other frontline public servants are not ordinary Australians? You think those who earn $80k are rich scum and should be taxed out of prosperity? As a frontline public servant I am absolutely offended and disgusted about these comments and his ascertions that because someone earns $80k it means that they don’t deserve a tax break.

About time people start waking up the menace of the Green monster that is infiltrating our political arena. The Greens are scum, and only prey on the weak and vulnerable. Given that over 50% of Australian voters receive some sort of taxpayer handouts the Green thrive on this. They don’t want to see Australians further their prosperity they would rather see people suffer and rely on taxpayers to ensure their political survival. This is clearly evident by Adams out of touch comments he made to News Ltd.

No root in this brothel!

The left must be licking their lips and salivating at the fact the right cannot organise a root in a brothel. This article, once you get past the poor form of journalism, indicates that Australia will never have a third right major political party. We will never experience what is happening in Europe.

If there is to be a new major right wing political party in Australian politics, all these fringe parties such as One Nation and Australian Liberty Alliance, need to get together and form a One Nation Liberty Alliance Party, or whatever they want to call themselves. There are too many right wing parties that because of ego or whatever floats their boat they can’t come together and form one major party. Lets see we have:

  • Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party
  • Australian Liberty Alliance
  • Rise up Australia
  • Australia First
  • Christian Democrats
  • Family First
  • Kim Vuga Love Australia or Leave Party (what the?)
  • Australian Protectionist Party
  • Australian Freedom Party
  • Katters Australian Party
  • Jacquie Lambie Network
  • and probably more lunatics out there………

If these parties got together, found a common goal, shared resources the Liberal and Labor Parties will have to up their game. The Liberal Party had no choice but to up their game back in the early 00’s when Pauline Hanson was the top dog in this game, we saw Howard adopt strong border protection policies and abolished ATSIC and got tough on welfare cheats, so if it has happened in the past, no reason why it can’t happen now under Prince Ponce as Leader of the Liberal Party.

People are longing for a new conservative force in Australia. The Liberal Party have changed from being a centre right party to a centre left. The National Party, well they are as defunct as an old commodore 64 computer, a mere country branch of the Liberal Party. Many National Party members have told me this, they have no plans on expanding. Hows that for an achievement? Therefore unfortunately there is no root in this brothel today!

 

The Party of Disrepute

The two major political party’s in Australia are making a mockery of the political system. The factional wars within both Liberal and Labor parties prove that the hungriness of political power exceeds any political decency. The un-elected Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told a Liberal Party state council meeting that there are no factions within the Liberal Party, if this is the case, i’d hate to see what the party would be like if there are factions but we all know that the NSW Division is riddled with factional wars like a cancer in a terminal ill patient.

The plight of grassroots members who have been pushing for democratic reform within the NSW Division has fallen on deaf ears as the left and the centre continue to dominate both the hierarchy and state council. We have seen the left dominate pre-selection in key conservative seats such as North Sydney and Mackellar. The fact that the party, that embraces strong border protection, pre-selected Jason Fallinki, a left wing crusader who wants open borders, in an ultra conservative seat such as Mackellar, just indicates how much power the left have.

I have been told there has also been incidences where members of the public wanted to join the Liberal Party because they felt the party’s philosophy’s are in tune to their own but to be told their membership to a branch has been rejected but were still invited to stay on the books as a general member. This is to ensure the power brokers of a branch remain in power and like most political parties they need money, therefore they will keep them on the books to try and get donations from them later on down the track when they set up those pesky call centres.

The NSW Liberal Party has become an orgy of factional love fests between the left and centre and have completely cut off any say to ordinary grassroot members. Anyone who speaks out against this will be susceptible to suspension or expulsion, we have seen this with former Federal MP Ross Cameron. Ross Cameron is a freedom fighter who has been fighting the political elite for political decency within the party and the left show the utmost disrespect for the man by giving him a 3 month suspension order. What the current leadership team are doing to the Liberal Party is putting the party in disrepute. They, including the unelected Prime Minister, have destroyed any decency the Liberal Party had. At least the Labor Party admit they have factions.
