A recent article in the Daily Telegraph “IVF clinics records increase in unattached single women wanting to become mothers” (28/7/19) reports that 8% of IVF recipients are single women. It expresses that there is a growing number of single women who are seeking IVF treatment because they are unable to find the right male to procreate and are willing to raise children on their own.
Raising children when you are in a relationship is no easy feat therefore one cannot ignore the fact that raising a child as a single parent would be even harder. We often hear in the media the struggles of single parenting such as child care costs, healthcare, food, shelter etc all on a single income. Thankfully we have a generous welfare system in Australia which allows people to receive single parent payment from the taxpayers as well as the child care rebate. Company’s also must provide people with maternity leave which allow the parent to be paid whilst looking after their pride and joy.
The issue here though is we often here the plight of single women raising children. Feminazi’s often get on the band wagon and plea that males do not pull their weight when it comes to child support. Women cry foul when Government cuts back on single parenting payments because Governments do not want to increase taxes to pay for the increasing demand of welfare. If we are seeing a rising trend in single women seeking IVF treatment to raise their children on their own, will see see a rise in women claiming the single parent payment from Centrelink? We will see women demand an increase in the single parent payment because these single women will not have a male to pay child support?
As a libertarian I don’t have a problem with women wanting to receive IVF treatment, nor do I have a problem with single women wanting to raise children on their own, but as a conservative I have a problem with taxpayers funding for someone elses children.
As a conservative libertarian I support the Australian Government’s plan for company tax cuts. I believe that more money in the hands of business means they can invest more on the progression of their business. This progression means more staff, more infrastructure and more innovation which all leads to growth within an economy. Singapore has a company tax rate of 17% compared to Australia’s 30% – they are our close neighbors. US President Trump recently cut their company tax rates down to 21% from 35%. If Australia wants to be competitive within the world market we ought to do something about our company taxes and given that Singapore is in close proximity to Australia, one must not be surprised if company’s invest more there.
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (PHON) holds crucial votes in trying to pass this dynamic move by the Federal Government. Senator Hanson – Leader of PHON – who once supported the cuts, decided to pull her support and implemented a set of demands. In terms of political capital this can only benefit PHON as it can demonstrate they can negotiate whilst flexing their muscles.
Senator Hanson’s demands are issues which are ‘red hot’ amongst voters. Immigration is spiraling out of control and we are seeing migrants not assimilating and thus creating ghetto’s; pensioners are struggling to keep warm over winter because they can’t afford their power bills yet we seem to give billions of dollars in foreign aid. These issues are real and PHON – rightly so – have managed to find a way to address these issues through negotiating with the Government over it’s company tax cut plan.
Today, PHON Senator Brian Burston has announced that he will go against the will of his leader and support these company tax cuts. Senator Burston’s move have done nothing to help the One Nation cause. In fact many media outlets are reporting that One Nation is divided and Hanson herself has come out swinging against him, hinting that he probably wont be pre-selected for NSW Senate ticket at the next Federal Election. Senator Burston has been poorly advised on this issue. This issue goes beyond company tax cuts, it goes deep into the soul of what One Nation wants to achieve as a political force within the senate. On the other hand, Pauline Hanson herself should have shut down any suggestion that there is a rift and kept this in house.
Senator Burston is a honourable man. What he says and what he does he truly believes in but in politics sometimes it’s important to hold your tongue to ensure the greater good is achieved. The greater good by holding back on supporting these great tax cuts is that PHON could have achieved a serious conversation about immigration, energy policy and the living standards of our pensioners. Unfortunately PHON looks like a divided political party on the brink of destruction.
NSW Liberals are fighting again. The dying breed of conservatives are continually losing ground as there is a push to oust former PM Tony Abbott from his Warringah seat and outspoken conservative, Craig Kelly – member for Hughes – is also facing an uphill battle from a former labor wannabe Kent Johns.
Kent Johns is the Party’s Vice President but in 1995 he was elected as a Labor Councillor for Rockdale. In 2002 he resigned from Labor and joined the Liberal Party. He was elected as a Liberal Councillor in 2004 in Sutherland Council and today he is rallying up support for pre-selection for the seat of Hughes. The left within the party are not even trying to hide their hatred towards Conservatism, the fact they have put a former labor stooge against a conservative firebrand such as Craig Kelly demonstrates that they will do anything to destroy any right wing element of the Party.
Last year the majority of Liberal Party members voted that they wanted to see party reform. There was a cascade of relief when this occured and Sky News program ‘The Outsiders’ had democratic freedom fighter John Ruddick on the show feeling optimistic about this symbolic gesture saying that he will rejoin the party. At the following State Council meeting, left wing delegates voted on a watered down version of the reform, proving that the left do not want to give up control. Why would they?
The Liberal Party is doomed due to their organisational woes. Whilst it is comforting that we have the likes of Peter Dutton, Tony Abbott and Craig Kelly in the fold, they are all facing uphill battles. Once the left ousts Abbott and Kelly, the few conservatives that are left within the Liberal Party will be voiceless and will have no choice but to tow the party line. Whilst Ruddick maybe optimistic about the future of the Liberal Party and it’s potential reforms, evidence is proving that the Party is spiraling out of control to the depths of left wing dystopia.
Malcolm Turnbull is hated in Australian politics. Within the Liberal Party he is hated as much as Bill Shorten. The fact he has lost 30 Newspolls in a row has proven that he is an unpopular Prime Minister. This experiment of having a left wing leader of a centre right political party has failed them miserably, however choosing a conservative to lead the party now is fraught with danger.
Conservatives within the Liberal Party are wanting the likes of either Abbott or Dutton to take over the reigns, whilst this could be a dream come true, it would spell the end of their political careers. The Liberal Party is spiralling out of control in terms of polling, it doesn’t matter what they do, the electorate wants a change, and to be honest who can blame them.
The issue I see is that whoever takes over the Liberal Party will have maybe 18months to try and change their electoral woes. Given that our Senate is rather hostile due to the dynamics of the crossbench it will be hard for any leader to push their electoral agenda. The only way in which a new leader could survive is to call a double dissolution within the first couple of months of their newly appointed leadership, the issue with this is if re-elected, the Senate could be more hostile than it already is.
If the Liberal Party do decide to bite the bullet and oust Turnbull, in my opinion they should choose Julie Bishop (should she decide to put her hand up). There are a number of reasons why but the main reason is, as mentioned previously, whoever leads the Liberal Party will no doubt end up lose the next Federal Election. The biggest thorn for the conservatives are progressives and Bishop is one of those thorns. If she leads the party at the next election to a defeat, she is more than likely to leave Parliament. It has been tradition that if you are voted out as PM you gracefully leave politics. With Turnbull and Bishop gone, the conservatives can rebuild and in opposition if we see a conservative as leader, it will give Shorten a run for his money.
In essence, conservatives within the Liberal Party need to calm their farm, work with the left and choose an alternative ‘moderate’ leader such as Julie Bishop. Let her go down in flames like Turnbull and then make their move. Do not waste good talented politicians like Dutton on this term of Government.
Who is else sick and tired of hearing about Barnaby Joyce? Every channel we turn to, we see and hear something about Barnaby and his new flame Vikki Campion. The only thing that we should be hearing about from the #barnabygate is whether or not he misused taxpayer funds to give her a job. Thats it really in a nutshell.
We see on all corners of the political spectrum that Barnaby committed poor moral judgment. Well sorry since when have Australians cared about morality? For heavens sake, Australians voted in their masses to support same sex marriage and the left spent millions of dollars to convince Australians that #loveislove. In the case of Barnaby Joyce he found new love with Vikki, regardless of morality – #loveislove right?
There is a push within the National Party for Mr Joyce to resign. Given that the National Party is a pseudo conservative party (conservative when they want to be) I get that he probably should respect their wishes but only if the grassroot membership want it. As a lay person, I do not believe he should resign on his poor morality judgement, at the end of the day what he does behind closed doors is non of our business and clearly Joyce recognised this hence why he didn’t want the public to know about his love affair. Barnaby should be judged purely on his performance and whether or not he has misused public funds.
In saying all of that, if this #barnabygate is affecting his ability to perform as Deputy Prime Minister, given that next week he will be the Acting Prime Minister maybe he should strongly consider stepping down as Deputy PM and PM Malcolm Turnbull with the approval of the National Party appoint Julie Bishop as Acting Prime Minister given that she is the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party. I say that because if the Nationals appoint a new leader before then, will they have enough experience to be the Acting Prime Minister? At the end of the day this is a decision Barnaby needs to make.
What are your thoughts?
Yesterday I wrote about how the LLBABC (Looney Left Brigade at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation) decided to change the date of Triple J hottest 100 to the 27th January instead of the 26th. I also wrote that their ABC has denied that it has anything to do with politics. Well we have some good news folks. The lovely people from Triple M have intelligently realised that majority of Australian’s celebrate Australia Day and have acknowledged that their is now an opportunity for them to start their own Hottest 100.
This has caused snowflakes within the vortex of the left to bring about liberal tears. Ultra lefty Wil Anderson tweeted:
Extremely shocked and disappointed by it all and have made that clear to management yesterday and will continue to hold and prosecute why I don’t think it’s a good idea
Oh boo hoo.
According to this article there have been a few lefties that have been crying and offended by Triple M’s decision to hold a hottest 100 on Australia Day and the good news is they don’t seem to be backing down. You see, the problem with snowflakes within the left regime is they expect others to follow them. They weren’t expecting a rival radio station to fill in the vaccume that was left by Triple J and if they were expecting it, they weren’t expecting Triple M to hold their ground when we see Wil Anderson critise them. As usual the left are throwing names at Triple M, calling them insensitive, racist, bogans etc. This is normal from the left. But it does prove that their ABC did change the date of the Hottest 100 purely on political grounds.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we ought to thank Triple M for providing us entertainment for the celebration of Australia Day!!!!
Thank You Triple M!!!
The Australian Greens have started a campaign to bring queer refugee’s into Australia. They have basically admitted that homosexuals are not safe in Muslim controlled countries. According to their website they have stated:
LGBTIQ asylum seekers under threat
Right now, thanks to Malcolm Turnbull and Peter Dutton, gay asylum seekers held on Manus Island are facing a dangerous and terrifying choice. To return to their country of origin where they could face the death penalty, or stay in PNG and risk up to 14 years’ imprisonment for being gay.
There is no pride in detention – Australia is a place that openly accepts the LGBTI community. We have a proud history of being a safe haven for refugees fleeing extreme persecution. But this horrific offshore detention regime has tarnished our record.
The Greens call on the Turnbull Government and the Labor opposition to close the camps on Manus Island and Nauru, and bring every man, woman and child to Australia.
Your voice is one of hope and strength to those most vulnerable – there is no pride in detention.
As usual the Greens have used individual circumstances to try and score political points. Most Australians would welcome genuine refugee’s but what constitutes a genuine refugee? In some countries it is illegal to chew gum – Singapore. One would argue that by disallowing citizens to chew gum is a breach in human rights and if you do chew gum, you face extreme persecution such as 2 year imprisonment (I would imagine Prisons in Singapore aren’t as humane as ours)
Homosexuality is illegal in most Muslim controlled countries and often they do face dire circumstances such as the death penalty. Does this really constitute a genuine refugee? Australia only just passed legislation to allow same sex couples to Marry. America and the United Kingdom passed this law years ago – does that mean gay couples could have jumped on a boat to New York to seek refuge because the Australian law discriminates? Further to this, it wasn’t that long ago that it was illegal in Australia for people to be Homosexual – did we see a mass exodus of gays seeking refuge elsewhere? Of course not.
The Greens, as usual, are playing with peoples emotions on this matter. They are blackmailing Australians making you believe that we should have open borders if people are not happy with their country’s laws. Being gay shouldn’t give you an automatic right to be given refugee status and kudos to Immigration Minister, Peter Dutton and Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull for standing their ground on this.
