What the Bloody Hell Just
Happened in Australia?

The polls were wrong. The pundits were wrong. The party insiders were wrong. The bookies were wrong. I was wrong. Even Burt the psychic croc was wrong. Australia’s dysfunctional, unpopular, conservative government (the Liberal and National parties, currently in coalition, sit on the right in Australian politics) held onto power for a third term in Saturday’s national election. This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

...despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race Another Leftist mistaking their agenda as being the same as the will of the people. I'm bone tired of being thought of as some kind of freak for holding traditional values.

The conservatives Trumped the Lefty Collective "dead certainty to win", just as they did in the USA two years ago and there is no hint of Russian interference. And the lefties everywhere , as they did with the USA, and Clinton's 95% certainiyt to win, are blaming the stupid, selfish, narrow minded troglodytes "especially on climate change" electorate. The lefties would have a great time in elections if it were not for the voters and everything was left to Public Polling and the opinions of their own pundits. The Polls got it all wrong because of the way they went about organizing their 'samples" Relying purely on "mobile phone" contact since the landlines have just about disappeared, `and the phone identification system, naturally attracts those likely to respond to "unknown phone" contacts.: i.e. mostly the young, unemployed or out of school/college at the time. Thta is leaving aside compeltey how the survey is actually put to the respondent.

This could have been written by Rachel Maddow, if she could write. But it’s not just about the far right. Progressive Australians are reeling because any lingering illusions that we were a “fair” nation have been shattered. So you see how this works? Whenever progressives lose, there is a serious fairness problem. When they win, there is no fairness problem. They could’ve been talking about the Trump election and its aftermath. This entire article is a manifesto for progressives: When they win, the stars and planets are aligned and everything went exactly as it should. When they lose, nothing went right, Armageddon is near and the election is somehow tainted.

Go to Australia sometime... you'll be shocked by the heavy influx of "immigrants of color" to the nation. They also have a tremendous problem with illegals coming in, not over land (obviously), but over the sea from Indonesia and Malaysia, where they're dropped off at night from ships along the northern coast. The result of this unchecked leftist one-world, do-good-ism crap is that white Australians now bear a strong resentment to "people of color" and are not afraid to verbalize, or show it.

Time to investigate Russian meddling and declare the election illegitimate. And yes #2 in the true sense of the word what was once "Liberal" is now labeled extreme Right. Anything opposing totalitarianism is far Right. Then again some forms of totalitarianism are also called far Right so as to conflate liberty with a form of totalitarianism.

Well, Rachel, perhaps your “climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race” agenda is only an “emerging consensus” with media and political elites. Apparently, Australia’s conservative movement isn’t as “dysfunctional” and “unpopular” as you wish it to be. You have to give the devil his due, however. Even when writing an article stating the truth of what happened, the liberal mind is so disordered that it has to convince itself that the reality it is reporting on isn’t a reality. A fascinating and frightening psychological phenomenon.

FTA by way of #3...despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race What they fail to realize is that it is not actually the nation's consensus. They have just created a toxic environment for anyone who does not agree. As a result, they believe they have won the argument, when, in fact, they are actually losing ground as people are aware that those who shout down, or violently suppress, disagreement do not have the ability to win the argument with logic.

This partisan hack can't decide whether the Labor Party's climate policies are "not that bold" or are "serious". Here's how serious they are: Implementation of their climate policy in South Australia resulted in the highest electricity prices in the developed world and black outs and brown outs the year round. To this day they refuse to admit that putting wind and solar in charge of base load power is problematic. No wonder people don't want them in power.

I really enjoyed this article and found it very entertaining. #16 perfectly described the reason. Rachel does an excellent job of rubbing the rough edges off reality and easily transverses the terrain between the rational and irrational. Rachel's thought process reminded me of a beautifully choreographed ballet; graceful dancing and energetic leaping set against ethereal settings... and the swan still dies.

This hit piece isn't something I will bother with. I got barely into it and the clearly leftist authoress started off with multi-adjectival slander on the 'conservatives'. At that point, it was clear that no value would be obtained from continuing to read the propaganda. The usual fare from Slate. Yep, they are so 'out of step' that people voted for them in greater numbers than the others.

Yet again, reality smacks the smug elite in the face. Just as happened with the Scottish independence vote, Brexit, and Trump's election in 2016. Delightful to see one of their representatives, Rachel Withers, so discombobulated. One wishes she might learn something –rather than revert to the Left's usual "it's unfair" or "it's undemocratic" whinging. No, Leftists, your triumphalism has again been shown to be premature.

Federal district judges aren't emperors for the whole United States. Congress and the Supreme Court should both remind them of that reality. By issuing putatively national injunctions, Attorney General William Barr said in a May 21 speech to the American Law Institute: “One judge can, in effect, cancel the policy with the stroke of the pen. No official in the United States government [rightly] can exercise that kind of nationwide power, with the sole exception of the president. And the Constitution subjects him to nationwide election, among other constitutional checks, as a prerequisite to wielding that power.” The subject arises because, on issue after issue, liberal district judges

John discusses what’s at stake in these elections in an article for “American Greatness” called “The Virtues of Patriotism.” The election, says John, represents a “war of ideas between the ‘Europe of Nations’ and the ‘Europe of Brussels’ — between national democratic sovereignty and supranational authority.” John is making a critical distinction.

Today’s lesson in political double standards: bankruptcies. When Donald Trump is involved in any brushes with bankruptcy, it just proves what a con man he is, a deadbeat and a scam artist, using his white privilege and toxic masculinity to rip off victims of the evil capitalist system. But now that it turns out the fake Indian, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, may have made millions as a lawyer in assorted corporate, Trump-like bankruptcies, somehow it’s become a wonderful, positive experience. “Bankruptcy law is about coming up with the fairest outcome possible in a difficult system,” the fake Indian’s campaign gushed Wednesday, “and trying to help individuals and businesses get a fresh start.”

Government documents that will soon be made public will reveal stunning information about former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power's voluminous unmasking efforts in 2016, according to multiple sources. On Thursday, President Trump gave Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify documents from multiple agencies related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016. According to investigative journalist Sara Carter on Fox News' Hannity, last night, some of the documents will reveal that FBI "informant" (spy) Stefan Halper recorded both George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, and there is exculpatory evidence on those tapes. In addition to that, according to Carter, one of the biggest revelations will pertain to Power's unmasking efforts.

When members of your own political party invent a slogan to block your rise to power, it’s likely that you pose a threat to the status quo. In America three years ago, that slogan was #NeverTrump — establishment conservatives’ call to stop Donald Trump from winning the Republican presidential nomination. In Britain now, it’s “Anyone but Boris,” establishment Tories’ rallying cry as they try to stop Boris Johnson from becoming the next prime minister. And like the #NeverTrump movement, their efforts look destined to fail. The two men share several obvious qualities. Both make an art out of chaos, packaging dishevelment and disarray into box-office entertainment.

Over the weekend, Australians reelected their conservative government against all expectations. The race, like many that have taken place in the United States in the last 20 years, illustrated that voters’ very real concern for the environment doesn’t translate to support for environmentalists. Yes, everyone wants a clean environment. But that doesn’t mean they will accept the crazed policies of today’s green Left, which views the planet’s supposedly imminent demise as a good excuse to impose socialism. Australia’s Labor Party campaigned heavily on higher taxes and cuts to greenhouse emissions. Their program was typical of such a platform, involving higher energy prices, huge subsidies for unproven
