… A Western Leader with ” Balls ” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 19th,2014

.. at last , we have a western leader with ” balls ” …

.. nothing  against the ladies [specifically , Angela Merkel , of  Germany] ..

.. and , no , I am not referring to PM Steven Harper of Canada .

.. [h/t —theGatewayPundit]..

.. [link] to the article …

.. I am  referring to Prime Minister Tony Abbott of Australia …

.. what a refreshing breath of fresh air . He is the leader of  the Liberal / National Party coalition down under . This grouping is , in essence , a single party [the Tory party] in Australia , having booted out the Labour party government of Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard in September of 2013 in a blowout mandate election … What a big change ! …

.. Tony Abbott is definitely a ” climate change ” skeptic . The Labourites had enacted a carbon tax scheme to bring the Aussies into the global warming lineup . Bad move . It is (was) enormously unpopular . Australia is also a country which is rich in minerals and natural resources . The carbon tax scheme would have hit it severely . With the Tories in power now , the carbon tax scheme is gone . Even the Greenie – weenies did not stand in the way …

.. In December , Australia took over the leadership of the G20 . With the G8 [now, the g7] on the skids , the G20 is the leading global forum for economic leadership and consultation . What will drive the rest of the world [including Obama & Co] crazy is that Tony Abbott is not shy , not one bit ,  about driving forth his agenda . He is not afraid to hit back at those folks who hit him over his climate change skepticism , for example …

.. give ‘ em hell , Tony !! …

… A Brain Lock Foreign Policy …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 10th,2013

.. Secretary of State JohnBoy Kerry says something off-the-kuff , and then , all of a sudden , it becomes policy ? Who the hell is minding the store ?

.. It sure as hell is not POTUS . He thinks that he is smarter than everybody else , and no one can keep up with him . Well , try

Vladimir Putin - Caricature

again , Barack ! You are playing tiddly winks , and Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] is playing diplomatic chess . Guess who is winning ?

.. Putin , who else ? Vlad is no dummy . JohnBoy made a boyBlunder , and he got inside BHO ‘ s head . Putin pulled off a deft political move , making Russia more relevant on the world stage , and also making Obama look like a rank amateur , by comparison . The Aussies were right about Kevin Rudd , and I am right about BHO .

.. POTUS is an even more grandiose narcissist than Kevin Rudd ever was . What is more dangerous is that POTUS is POTUS , and does not have a clue about what he is doing on the world stage . People keep making him look like a chump , and our fellow Americans are getting tired of his act . Unfortunately , we are stuck with Obama for the next 43 months . Hopefully , he will not blunder too badly …

.. God in Heaven help us if he does . Many people will , I am afraid , get killed as a result of Obama ‘ s incompetence , both here at home , and overseas . Other nations will take note , and act accordingly …

… Your Move , Barack Obama …

… Where Grandiose Narcissism relates to POTUS …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 10th,2013

.. I have highlighted and brought over the relavent passages …

Describing grandiose narcissism as less a psychiatric disease and more a destructive character defect, the document suggested Rudd was held together by one key strut: an absolute conviction of intellectual superiority over everyone else. “Kick out that strut and he will collapse”.

Rudd, the document went on, was vulnerable to any challenge to his self-belief that he was more widely-read, smarter and more

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

… the First Narcissist … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

knowledgeable than anyone else “on the planet”. Such a condition of grandiose narcissism would make Rudd obsessively paranoid, excessively vindictive – “prepared to wait years to get revenge”.

Rudd would be threatened by a rival in any of his fields and would be obsessively paranoid and ready to retaliate to real or perceived threats; he would suffer from excessive suspicion. This could be tactically exploited, the document suggested, by promoting the idea that Rudd was merely a caretaker prime minister, to be terminated by colleagues once the election was won.

.. how does this relate to you-know-who ?

.. Easy . Barack Obama is one of the most extremely arrogant , suspicious , and paranoid political leaders that I can remember . At least Jimmy Carter and others have moral centers , save Wilhelm der Fibmeister . Clinton , for all of his moral failing (boy , were there a lot of them , that is for sure) could adapt politicallly , at least when he had to , or when certain parties got it thru his thick skull .

.. in this article (which i have requoted) , it refers to Kevin Rudd . The passage to see is the one that I am posting , or from the second paragraph above …

Rudd, the document went on, was vulnerable to any challenge to his self-belief that he was more widely-read, smarter and more knowledgeable than anyone else “on the planet”. Such a condition of grandiose narcissism would make Rudd obsessively paranoid, excessively vindictive – “prepared to wait years to get revenge”.

.. It does not take much of a stretch to take out “Rudd” and insert Barack Hussein Obama . Sound familiar ?! I thought that you would agree , too …

… POTUS a “Grandiose Narcissist ?” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 10th,2013

.. I wonder . POTUS seems to have a great deal of faith in his own abililties and his own intellectual superiority . It makes him to be one very arrogant bastard , that is for sure .

.. I would wonder if there is any kind of psychological (albeit political) evaluation . No , not an explicitly political one . A specifically

... well , it worked ! ...

… well , it worked ! …

medical , i.e. a psychological one , or one of a psychiatric nature . It would make for very interesting reading , that is for sure . Considering what is going on over Syria right now , it would sure make for very interesting reading …

.. In this case , this one involves an Obama – style clone , soon – to – be former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd of Australia . You will find this short piece , from the Sydney Morning Herald , and the link to the longer one to the parent piece at the Australian Financial Review to be very interesting reading . It does take some understanding of Australian politics , but not much . I am not trying to be arrogant , at least I hope not .

.. Australia ‘ s legislature looks like it is similar in form to our Congress here in the U.S. . Not quite . The form , yes . The function , though , is a great deal more like a Westminster style Parliament . The lower House majority elects the Prime Minister , and , except in rare instances , the elections are held on a regular basis every three years .

.. Rudd politically knifed his predecessor , former PM Julia Gillard , just a few weeks ago . He was convinced that he was the candidate to take Australia ‘ s Labour party into the most recent general election . Well , she went , and he took over , and you might wonder what happened ? Guess ?

.. Tony Abbott and the Liberal Party / National Party coalition (the Tories) blew out Labour , and did it in style . The coalition won about 90 to 92 seats in Australia ‘ s lower House of Parliament , against 58 for Labour and their alies . Bombs Away ! Guess kevin got his just reward , and now it is off to the political wilderness for both Rudd and Gillard …

… Congrats to Tony Abbott [new Australian PM] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 8th,2013

.. hot dog ! ..

.. Tony Abbott and the Liberal / National Party Coalition [the Tories] have won an overwhelming election mandate , and have been returned to power after a very long abscence from power .

.. Abbott ‘ s Coalition has appeared to have won 91 or 92 seats in the Australian House of Representatives . It represents an approximate 33 or 34 seat majority in that body . Australia ‘ s Parliament looks in form somewhat like our U.S. Congress , but its function is that of a Westminster parliament , or similar to the Britain . Its Senate control is divided , only because one – healf of the seats were up .

.. Abbott is right . Australia is indeed , open for business once again . If the Aussie Laborites and the Greens are not careful , Abbott could force the Govenour General [Australia ‘ s nominal head of state] to have a “double dissolution ” of both house. It would then put all 150 House seats and 76 Senate seats up at once , and Labour would be to blame .

.. Australia ‘ s hated “carbon tax” will survive , at least for now . Unless Labour is nuts , they will support the new Government , and vote for repeal . Playing political “chicken” with a newly elected and apparantely very popular PM is a really dumb idea . We shall see …
