Remember Crooked Hillary?

Following on from Steve Kates’ post on Catallaxy Files, it’s incredible that Trump barely slurs a few words and the whole media melts down.

Conversely, when Hillary did things like this, we were expected to make nothing of it whatsoever:

 

I posted on Hillary’s obvious health issues during the 2016 US Presidential election campaign. One year on, a couple of the video links have interestingly gone dead.

Editorial – We’ve Only Just Begun

Isn’t it funny how the left:

  • said that any public debate on homosexual marriage would turn nasty and harmful towards homosexuals (and their children) – and then it didn’t. Indeed, the opposite occurred… repeatedly;

The Constitution is Just Fine Thank You Very Much

I saw this opinion written by Sanjeev Sabhlok (as a guest poster) over at Catallaxy Files and just about fell out of my chair. It relates to the Federal Parliament’s citizenship crisis and attempts to follow the ‘law is stupid’ line of argument:

Stop worshipping the Constitution. Please start thinking.

Citizenship is meaningless if it does not include the right to represent the community in parliament. Australia citizenship is arguably worthless since our constitution imposes restrictions on citizens who can contest elections.

I. Told. You. So.

Isn’t it funny how those who purport to be the most eminent often can’t see what’s right in front of their noses?

TMR breaks down the good bits of today’s High Court decision in the Citizenship Seven affair. Trust me when I say it’s an absolute treasure trove of entertainment… for everyone except George Brandis and those who were ultimately disqualified from Parliament.

Go and grab yourself a coffee or liquored beverage of your choice (it is Friday afternoon after all) and let’s get busy!

Brandis Has Truly Lost the Plot

In case there wasn’t already enough of a disconnect between the political class and regular people, George Brandis put forward this ludicrous proposition the other day:

Dual citizen politicians who “honestly swear” they didn’t know they held foreign citizenship should not be ruled ineligible to sit in Parliament, Attorney-General George Brandis has told the High Court.

In a submission concerning the fate of MPs currently under a citizenship cloud, Senator Brandis said his construction of the law suggested politicians should be taken at their word [TMR: (!!!)] unless there was evidence to the contrary.

Editorial – The LGTBI Waffen Never Sleeps

Is it just me, or do you get the feeling that we’re being followed by the LGTBI lobby and its brigade of extreme activists?

Safe Schools ‘All of Us’ Unit Guide Amended

Reader Jason has noticed that the All of Us unit guide appears to have changed:

It seems they have changed the exercise on Page 20. Possibly others. Is it possible to put it up here to compare the differences?

The short answer is: YES! Yes it is!!!

(Hold for applause).

Turnbull’s Energy Economics

In The Australian yesterday came this story of Malcolm Turnbull giving Einstein (or whoever really came up with his insanity quote) the middle digit:

Power firms told to cut prices

The nation’s electricity industry chiefs will be hauled in by Malcolm Turnbull for the second time in three weeks following an audit that rcevealed more than a million households are still paying the highest price rates ­imposed by energy retailers.

‘Progressive’ Policies Have Regressed Us Back to the 1950s

If you’re not a regular visitor to Catallaxy Files (you ought to be), then you may not be familiar with this graph – which clearly shows what happens when governments diddle around in energy markets and increase subsidies to wind and solar energy in the name of ‘climate action’:

The Swamp Runs Deep

If I presented the following conversation to you, who would you say is the crazy one?

  • Person A (to person B) – I’ve been starving my people for years and committing various other human rights atrocities so that I could develop some nukes – and now I’m ready to launch them at you for no particular reason!
  • Person B (to person A) – I’d reconsider if I were you. Launch anything at me and I’ll unleash the kind of fire and fury that’ll blow both your mind and you away!
