… The Aussies have come to their Senses over so – called ” Climate Change ” [#fraud]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 30th,2015

.. and they support the Liberal party , which believes that the so – called climate change science is a fraud …

.. many areas believe likewise , but are afraid to say so . Australian PM Tony Abbott is not one of those kind of people . He has some serious balls , and is not afraid to say what he thinks , even if it is not politically correct …

.. [h/t — Yahoo.com/news]..
.. [link] to the blog news report …

.. Abbott and the Tories do not believe in ” Climate Change , ” at least as the Global left defines it . He believes , among other things , that it is an excuse to give funds to other countries that will squander it . He also thinks that it is a lever by the global left to enact excessive and impulsive controls on the environment , on people , and on business …

.. There is good reason that Tories worldwide do not believe in the science of Climate Change . They believe that it is a fraud ..

… Malcolm ‘ s revenge on Tony [#Abbott]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 19th,2015

.. the Aussies now [or soon will] have a new PM ..

.. Malcolm Turnbull , a self – made man and classical Liberal , has ousted his now – predecessor Tony Abbott as PM of Australia . A surprise , yes , but not a shock ..

.. turnbull was the previous Liberal leader [in 2009] before Abbott ousted him before a general election . Now Turnbull has had his revenge ..

.. [h/t — news.com.au]..
.. [link] to the news story ..

.. the Liberals have been trailing somewhat in opinion polls for the last 7 months . Not by a large margin , but consistently . It is not a good position to be in before going to a general election in about 18 months . But a panic move [my opinion on this] ..

… the EcoSocialist Weenies are Mad at Tony [Abbott , Aussie PM] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. would anyone be surprised ?!?! ..

.. the debut of Australia ‘ s new budget has set off a hornet ‘ s nest of debate down under . Labour is not happy , not one bit . Neither are the interest groups . So , what else would one expect ??

.. [h/t — HotAir]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the real biggie is the ” renewed ” [read : recycled] effort by the U.N. and a number of major powers to bring back a climate change treaty . Maybe things will be different , but I doubt it . China is too far along on its development track to change . Ditto India . Soon , the U.S. will change , because Congress will be fully in the hands of the GOP . His Lordship ‘ s hands will then be tied , lest he wants to get his butt kicked out the door …

.. Australia will not participate in the new effort . the new Liberal government knows the Chinese and India well . They will not play ball . Europe will harrumph and scream , but then will do nothing . The Aussies are not small fry that can be pushed around , and POTUS knows it ….

.. If Obama tries to muscle Abbott , Abbott will respond in kind . Abbbott knows that he has conservative support in the U.K. , as well as from the GOP . Obama will be and has been fatally weakend by scandal after scandal . The VAgate scandal will just be the ” cherry on the top . “

… Bravo , Tony [Abbott] !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 24th,2014

.. great move ! ..

.. take the fight to the opposition ..

.. no one should have expected the Liberal ‘ s first budget to be popular . Australian Liberals are the Tories , the conservatives , and they are more to the right than most people realize …

.. [h/t — HotAir]..
.. [link] to the blog post news ..

.. this was no exception . Especially the reaction to the Liberal proposal to take a meat ax to the budget for so – called ” green ” spending . Boy , does it ever … It gets cut by almost 90% , and the ecosocialist weenies are screaming bloody murder …

.. good . Let them .

… 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 !! …

… 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 …

… Australia and the Carbon Tax …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 8th,2013

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott (16)

… new Australian PM Tony Abbott …

.. if Labour is smart , they will vote (at least to a point) with the new Government to repeal the hated Carbon tax .

.. This tax is indeed hated down under . It places Australia at a distinct disadvantagege in comparison to its neighbours , economically . Australia is indeed diversifying its economy , but it is still very much export – based , in many ways a great deal like Canada . Now it will be in a better position to compete , and not just in Asia .

.. It will be interesting to see how the change in power in Canberra will be taken in Europe and the America . The big factor is , of course , my home country , the United States . We have our first Communist President , one who is a wus at home , and is a even bigger wus overseas .

.. In the U.S. , POTUS ‘ effective remaining power is his power over the administrative state . He can lay out his policies , but his policies do not make him popular . Matter of fact , they make him ever more unpopular . Any way that he tries to implement policy is contested in the courts . Which makes for both an interesting time , and lots of delays .

.. These days , an even bigger fight has ensued over his policies . Left – wing and ecosocialist interest groups take their beefs over ObamaCrap Administration policies to court . Where it then gets interesting is when those same groups and the ObamaCraps start playing “footsie,” legally . It then sets up what is known as a “sue and settle” situation , where the ObamaCraps still get their policy enacted , and effectively block opposition from the right by blocking their access to the courts .

.. I wonder how Australia ‘ s export – based economy is going to like that . Especially with the carbon tax likely to go the way of the “do – do bird . ”

… 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 …
