Two polls have shown the Labor government is in trouble, while Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s popularity is rising as fast as support for Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is plummeting.
If it’s starting to finally dawn on you that Rudd is shallow then wait until you find out how Left Julia is. She has tagged Jim Cairns as one of her heroes.
You remember him? He was the communist who supported the Viet Cong and took up collections to better enable them to kill Diggers. He organized the Moratoriums and went to Moscow every year to better coordinate his attacks on our society.
Oh yes, he was also our Deputy PM under the other “Great” ALP luminary – Gough Whitlam.
The day Julia was selected as Deputy I found and linked to a speech she had delivered to a Girls High School in Melbourne advocating they take to the streets to force change just like Cairns had done. The link was taken down the very next day.
Still, I recall a year or two ago a young man commenting on Communism – “It’s just another political party like the ALP or the Libs, isn’t it? so what chance the young ones heed my cry in the wilderness.
None, but never mind, like a long and hard route march – one day it ends and one day the ALP will be back where they belong.
STOCKHOLM — Previously unseen footage emerged Thursday showing Republican presidential candidate John McCain as a prisoner of war in Hanoi on the day his Vietnamese captors released him to the U.S. military.
Erik Eriksson, a former reporter from Swedish broadcaster SVT, told the Associated Press he found the video in the network’s archives while conducting research for a book about his experiences as a Vietnam War correspondent
From the Los Angeles Times
McCain grimaces as he steps off a bus with other prisoners. He has a pronounced limp. He puts both feet on a step before continuing, but does not use crutches.
The prisoners stand in rows until a Vietnamese official calls their names.
McCain, like other prisoners, briskly walks up to salute and shake hands with U.S. military officers. Although only 37, he has white hair. Then the footage shows prisoners walking to a U.S. plane
The commo bastards.
A HUMILIATED Kevan Gosper has accused the International Olympic Committee of betrayal, condemning the world sporting body for striking a secret deal with China to censor the international media during the Beijing Games.
A red-eyed and crestfallen Gosper, a senior IOC member for 31 years, told The Australian that both his reputation and that of the controversy-plagued IOC had been seriously dented by China’s decision to restrict internet access for journalists covering the Games.
Surely no one ever believed that a communist country would give free reign to foreign journalists or give way on human rights issues.
How much is buck passing and how much was anticipated before hand we’ll never know but one thing is for sure – I don’t believe that the IOC believed what the communists were telling them and they gave the games to Beijing for reasons of their own.
Maybe it will force China into softening, there may be a positive but I really think we are about to be hit with mobs of communist propaganda.
Over the next few weeks I think I’ll stay away from tabloid TV more than I normally do.
Angela Davis, ex Black Panther and rabid communist has been invited to speak at the West Australia’s Harmony Week run by the Office of Multicultural Interests
There are many articles on Angela that brush over her time on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list and trial where all charges were dropped but this one doesn’t
In 1970 Davis was implicated by more than 20 witnesses in a plot to free her imprisoned lover, fellow Black Panther George Jackson, by hijacking a Marin County, California courtroom and taking hostage the judge, the prosecuting assistant district attorney, and two jurors. In an ensuing gun battle outside the court building, Judge Harold Haley’s head was blown off by a sawed-off shotgun owned by Ms. Davis. To avoid arrest for her alleged complicity in the plot, Ms. Davis fled California, using aliases and changing her appearance to avoid detection.
Two months later Davis was arrested by the FBI in New York City. At her 1972 trial, Davis presented her version of where she had been and what she had been doing at the time of the shootout. Because she was acting as her own attorney, she could not be cross-examined. She presented a number of alibi witnesses, almost all Communist friends, who testified that she had been with them in Los Angeles playing Scrabble at the time of the Marin slaughter. Prosecution witnesses who placed her in Marin were dismissed by Davis and her fellow attorneys as being unable to accurately identify blacks — because they were white.
What is it with Multiculturists that they pay this woman big money to speak? Charges may have been dropped but there are enough questions left to bar her entry to Australia.
In my ongoing fight against communism I note my blog is blocked by the Chinese authorities but every day I get calls on Skype from Chinese citizens wanting to chat.
Get that up ‘ya China.

Gradually we’ll wear them down.
From Tramtown (where does he get the time to find all these obscure sites?)
Senator Kerry campaigns for the Republicans as he reminds the US that the Democrats come with left wing garbage.
Senator Kerry is a decorated war veteran who served in Vietnam. He said people were “crazy” to think he would denigrate America’s 140,000 personnel serving in Iraq.
Maybe people are crazy and are ready to believe that Kerry would insult servicemen because that’s what he does. Since he first come on the radar screen in the early 70s his stock and trade has been to dispage his own countrymen and curry favour with their enemies.
Kerry in 2006 addressing a rally;
You know, education–if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.
Kerry in 1971 addressing a Senate Inquiry;
They [US servicemen in Vietnam] had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.
But as we know, Kerry is also a a man of action. He went to North Vietnam and helped the communists secure leverage in the Paris Peace Talks.
This from a guest at the Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam war;
I was a POW for nearly six years, held in North Vietnam prison camps, including the notorious Hanoi Hilton, a place of unimaginable horrors — torture, beatings, starvation and mind-numbing isolation. When Kerry branded us “war criminals,” he handed our captors all the justification they needed to carry out their threats to execute us. Thanks to Kerry, Jane Fonda and their comrades in the anti-war movement, our captivity was prolonged by years. The communists in Hanoi and Moscow couldn’t have had a better press agent to spread their anti-American propaganda.
And this from Opinion Journal;
Kerry’s apology isn’t really an apology at all. Here’s a shorter summary of it:
1. What I said wasn’t really what I said.
2. I’m sorry if you misinterpreted what I was saying by taking it at face value.
3. Republicans suck.
Why it is so hard just to say, “I’m sorry for what I said”?
I trust we can get quotes from Kerry everyday from now until the mid-term US elections. It may help to remind Americans that this is what the Democrats think of the US military. Every house has a veteran and the main-steam America treats them honourably, unlike Kerry.
Conclusion: By interfering, the USA was responsible in causation for the deaths of (correction 3)–5.1 million Vietnamese, give or take a few.
So endeth the sermon by Peter at Lavartus Prodeo. Argueing from a lawyers viewpoint he posts an article with the sole purpose of sheeting the blame for an inflated casualty rate on the US. I have just attended a reunion of the 7th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment at Fremantle in Western Australia and can only express amazement at Peter’s naivity, or is it blinded ignorance?
On the Indian Pacific a fellow traveller asks me why I was going to Perth, I mention the reunion and he says ah yes, Vietnam…such a waste. I enlighten him and for the first time in his lifer he thinks beyond the 10 second audio visual bites he was fed on the evening news. I tell him we who fought it don’t think it a waste. At the very least we stemmed the flow of the scourge of communism for a decade and depleted the coffers of the USSR and Communist China to such an extent that the events that lead to the fall of the Berlin War were set in train.
Millions escaped after the fall of Saigon by boat, by plane, by anything that would remove them from the hell that was coming. Millions didn’t.
Lefties still mintain the soft view of Ho Chi Minh that portays him as a nationalist with his only intention being to rid Vietnam of the French and later, the US, when from day one he was a marxist, schooled by the Soviets to take over both South and North Vietnam to form a communist bastion in the east.
To view a ten year war through the statutes of law seems a strange approach to me. I see men in suits arguening the case but the backdrop, the rear wall of the court room, is enscribed with millions of names of men who died and all Peter can do is argue for the aggressors. The communists invaded; the Free World forces tried to defend.
Maybe Peter was around when the war was on but somehow I doubt it. I was there and went back a couple of years ago to view first hand the results of 30 plus years of communism. The economy has been comatozed for decades and is just showing some life now the old Marxists are dying and losing power. Yet the people have a shadow over them of the millions who have disappeared or are still alive but shattered by re-education camps. Over the road from the bar I frequented a family lives on the profit from selling a dozen or so soft drinks per day…..in 2004.
How can educated men defend this?
School, Uni, Law School, employment with Smith, Smith and Smith, see the world through a law book. Never touch the dead just count them and use the stats to put a fallacious arguement.
Makes it all worthwhile, doesn’t it?
Reader Pete Munro from Perth emails me this morning.
Just wondering if you had heard anything of a rumour that “Hanoi” Jane Fonda has been invited to host a luncheon at the Brisbane Convention Centre on November 11th?
Rumour started on a military forum I belong to, but I can’t find anything online about it.
Well I did and she is coming to Brisvegas and is hosting a lunch for the Courier Mail Book Club
Armed with this info I penned an email to the Courier Mail team and wait for their reply
The Courier-Mail BAM Bookclub
I note Jane Fonda is booked to appear at the Convention Centre via the auspices of the CM Book Club on 11 November, 2005 – the day when the sacrifice of Veterans is commemorated. As I’m sure you are aware, Jane is a very contentious lady amongst the Veteran community and I have already received emails and tele calls re the timing of her appearance. The editor of the CM printed a letter from Bernie McGurgan in today’s CM on the subject and I will be posting on the subject in due course in my blog, http://www.kevgillett.net.
I would like to think that the timing is due to factors other than it being aimed at the Veteran community although I recall last year on 11 November the CM carried an anti-defence piece by Luke McIlveen. I posted an article on that occasion and would like to think that the Courier Mail doesn’t have a bias against veterans and that the timing of this event is not part of a programme to denigrate Veterans. The article I wrote last years is here
Few Veterans would argue that Jane Fonda has the right to be heard. I have no problem with that but I do have a problem with the timing.
Could you please reassure me and my readers that the timing is coincidental and neither scheduled to maximize controversy nor aimed at denigrating Veterans.
Kevin J Gillett,
Should you want to email the Editors of the Courier Mail, the list is here. Tammy Concannon’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be polite now…you hear!
Every now and then I think it relevant to remind ourselves just how bad communism was and how many of their people suffered under it’s yoke.
Damien Perry has a post about a new book on Mao Tse Dung that suits the purpose.
Famine apart, the authors calculate that deaths in prisons and labour camps over Mao’s years from 1949 totalled some 27 million. In the ten years of the Great Purge (1966–76) that came with the Cultural Revolution, at least three million people died violent deaths outside prison. Post-Mao leaders have stated that 100 million people (one-ninth of the entire population) suffered in one way or another during that period.
1966-76. Now let’s see. Who, of all of our Prime Ministers, was it that couldn’t wait to get into bed with these bastards.
Oh yes. Comrade Whitlam.
It was only recently that the “Communist Manifesto” by Marx and Engels was voted as the most harmful book printed during the 19th and 20th century.
I have to agree.
This letter in todays Australian serves to highlight another reason to recall the embarrassment of being an Australian when Whitlam was in power
Last days of Saigon still linger
04 May 2005
RODNEY Dalton’s article (“Pain lingers for deserted four – fall of Saigon: 30 Years On”, 30/4) recites, without comment, unfounded and hurtful criticisms of my late father, Geoffrey Price, the last Australian ambassador to South Vietnam.
My father, as Australia’s ambassador, was obeying direct and specific instructions from the Australian government, which he had bitterly but unsuccessfully disputed over the preceding days, in not evacuating the Australian embassy’s 55 Vietnamese staff on the RAAF Hercules sent to evacuate the other few remaining Australian staff and him. He certainly was not loading the aircraft with his personal possessions or any pets during the scramble on that day.
In an article The Australian ran on the 25th anniversary of the fall of Saigon in April, 2000, Stuart Rintoul reported my father’s enduring sense of shame at the way Australia abandoned all but one of its locally engaged Vietnamese embassy staff, together with many other Vietnamese at risk of being punished by the incoming North Vietnamese for their associations with Australia. I can confirm that my father’s shame at Australia’s petty betrayal of Vietnamese colleagues who had worked alongside him for many months did remain with him until the day he died.
Bellevue Hill, NSW
Whitlam wouldn’t have anything to do with ‘those f**king Vietnamese Balts’, as he put it at, least not with the ones from the South. Stuart Rintoul, of course would blame the military, or the Diplomatic Corps, or the Ambassador, or the…..well , anyway, anyone but Whitlam.
