Anne Coulter on Trump’s supposed telling the Russians a secret

The big secret Trump allegedly revealed is that Muslims might try to blow up a plane with laptops. I already knew that. I read it in The New York Times.

The New York Times, March 22, 2017:

Devices Banned on Some Planes Over ISIS Fears

“Intelligence showing that the Islamic State is developing a bomb hidden in portable electronics spurred the United States and Britain on Tuesday to bar passengers from airports in a total of 10 Muslim-majority countries from carrying laptop computers … two senior American counterterrorism officials said. …”

This totally secret, Deep Throat-level information has been widely published in thousands of news outlets throughout the civilized world. There was yet another round of stories last week with the update that the U.S. is considering a laptop ban on flights from Europe as well.

Trump met with the Russian Ambassador on 10 May, a full three weeks after the laptop “secret” was headlined in the NYT.

Seriously, the attacks against Trump are bordering on insanity.

Ever watched a rugby game of 7 year olds.  They all just chase the ball wherever it goes. Makes me think of journalists.

The drop the “Trump told the Russians a secret” line but to prove that that is bad for the US someone kicks the ball and they all swarm after it.

It lands near UK PM.

Trying to establish the fact that the incident has prompted fears that the US’ allies may be reluctant to share intelligence with the country in future they question Theresa May but she doesn’t see their point.

Asked whether the reports would make her reluctant to share intelligence with the president, she replied that: “We continue to work with the United States and we continue to share intelligence with the United States, as we do with others around the world.”

The swarm settle and murmer amongst themselves.  Someone else kicks the ball and they all chase after it.  It lands in Israel.

It appears the fact that terrorist were looking to use laptops to blow up planes comes from Israel.  The swarm need to prove that allies hate Trump and won’t trust him anymore with state secrets.  

State secrets that were printed in the NYT two odd weeks before the event.

In the wake of the reports, Israeli officials have expressed confidence in the intelligence-sharing relationship.

Tweeting Wednesday morning, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman wrote, “The security relationship between Israel and our greatest ally the United States, is deep, significant and unprecedented in volume.”

“This relationship with the US is unprecedented in its contribution to our strength. This is how it has been and how it will continue to be,” Liberman added.

Israeli Minister of Intelligence Israel Katz also weighed in today.

“I have complete confidence in the American intelligence community. Intelligence cooperation between Israel and the United States regarding the threats posed by Iran and its proxies and ISIS and its affiliates will continue and deepen,” Katz said.

No joy there either.  


And none here.

  Even Democrat Nancy Pelosi warns the Trump666 crowd to get real.

At a CNN town hall Monday evening, Mrs. Pelosi warned Democrats pushing the impeachment of President Trump and said if they can’t make the case they shouldn’t even suggest the idea.

“In other words, again, if you are talking about impeachment, you are talking about what are the facts. Not that I don’t like him and I don’t like his hair and — what are the facts?” she said. “What are the facts that you would make a case on? What are the rules that he may have violated? If you don’t have that case you are just participating in more hearsay.”

No worries, the scrum return to the centre and someone again kicks the ball

They all chase after it like the swarm of 7 year olds they are and they just keep chasing it until something else come up.

Like this alarming fact.

At the White House he gets two scoops of ice cream while every one else gets only one.



Voltaire awards

Apparently free speech is only free if it attacks us conservatives. Liberty Victoria has announced Gillian Triggs as the 2017 winner of the Voltaire Award for her contribution to free speech.

Yep…really…free speech

Chris Kenny at The Australian says;

This is the ultimate sellout of the human rights crowd. Triggs is lauded not for adhering to their lofty principles but for being on the right side of their partisan political debates. Look at her record: she delayed an inquiry into children in detention for 18 months for political reasons; pursued three university students for years over innocuous Facebook posts; allowed the commission to spruik for complaints that were then taken up against cartoonist Bill Leak; and has repeatedly misled and been forced to correct her evidence to various parliamentary inquiries.

All of which suits Liberty Victoria’s charter.

In July Professor Triggs will share the stage at a gala award function in Melbourne with Georgie Stone, Liberty Victoria’s first recipient of its Young Voltaire Award for becoming, at age 10, “the youngest person in Australia to be granted permission by a court to take hormone blockers, the first stage of medical treatment for transgender children.”

I understand that from a left perspective anyone who attacks free speech such as Triggs does, is worthy of the award but what the hell has a poor trouble gender confused kid got to do with free speech?

According to Georgie Stone her first words were “Mum, I want a vagina.”  and that was when she was two!

Right….nothing suss there.  

According the Mayo Clinic website;

Although every child grows and develops at his or her own pace, toddler speech development tends to follow a fairly predictable path. For example, the average 2-year-old:

  • Speaks at least 50 words
  • Links two words together, such as “my cup” or “no juice”
  • Speaks clearly enough for parents to understand about half of the words

But not our Georgie.  No sir! She’s way ahead of that.  Full sentence…complicated word.

“Mum, I want a vagina”.

I understand and have empathy with kids with gender problems but Georgie is obviously an alphabet promotion and propaganda tool as is the Voltair award itself.

Come back Lewis Carroll, we need you to explain this.

Previous recipients of the left-wing gala award include Julian Assange, Get Up!, Julian Burnside, David Marr, Richard Ackland, Stephen Mayne and Waleed Aly.


Everyone’s offended

Latham is in trouble again.

Latham used his Sky News program to suggest a Sydney Boys High student who took part in a video in support of feminism, was gay.

“The boys at the boys school look like dickheads doing their video, total dickheads,” Latham said on air before adding, “I thought the first guy was gay.”

The first Prefect to appear said;

Feminism is important to me because a few months ago a guy wanted to have sex with me – I didn’t want to.

and walked off.  I did a double take as the prefect appeared to be a male and he was talking as if feminism effected him personally.  I replayed it – yep he’s male.

So, I think the first guy is gay as well but if he is or isn’t I don’t really care however I can’t see why a commentator can’t say “I think he’s gay”

Latham is also in trouble for saying Wendy Harmer is disabled.  I don’t know if a cleft palate qualifies as a disability but hey, Wendy does has a cleft palate. She doesn’t hide it and we all know and I can’t imagine too many people would judge her on her palate alone so what’s the big deal.

Are we all snowflakes looking for reasons to feel offended?

UN anti-Israel bias questioned

Trump selected new United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued a scathing criticism of the UN Security Council over their “anti-Israel” bias on Thursday after emerging from her first regular monthly meeting at the international body.

The former South Carolina governor noted that while it is the UN Security Council’s mission to discuss ways to maintain international peace and security, their meeting on the Middle East failed to address some of the region’s most pressing issues — namely, Hezbollah’s illegal buildup of rockets in Lebanon, the money and weapons the Iran regime is supplying to its terrorist entities throughout Latin America and the Middle East, ways to defeat the Islamic State, and how to hold Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad accountable for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of his countrymen.

“Instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East,” Haley said. She added that while she is “new” to the United Nations, she is well-seasoned in her understanding of the UN Security Council’s generations-long bias against Israel. “I’m here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore,” she said. “I’m here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel.”

At last the US has an adult at the UN and while we are talking about Israel wait until Israeli PM Netanyahu arrives in Australia. BDS and Antifa are guaranteed to be on the news as they go beserk criticizing the only democracy in the Middle East.

The Australia Palestine Advocacy Network has already started on their anti-Israel attack with a statement they organized.  It cites 60 prominent Australians.

In a joint statement, 60 prominent Australians – from businesswoman Janet Holmes à Court and former Federal Court judge Murray Wilcox, to retired Anglican Bishop George Browning and Harry Potter actress Miriam Margolyes – say Mr Netanyahu’s policies contravene international law.

An actress doesn’t like Israel…my god! I’ll have to rethink the matter seeing as how she can memorise a script writer’s words and all sort of stuff,  she must be a far greater thinker than I am.


DFAT Supports Hijab wearing

Ms Abdel-Magied who sat next to Malcolm Turnbull at the Iftar dinner for Muslim leaders held at Kirribilli House last year to celebrate the end of Ramadan, made headlines this week when, as a guest on the ABC’s Q&A program, she describe­d Islam as “the most femin­ist” of all relig­ions.

Her statement was rejected by a fiery senator Jacqui Lambie, who argued that those countries where sharia informs the law are some of the most violently mis­ogynistic places on earth.

Pity it was left to Corporal Senator Jackie Lambie to respond but Abdel-Magied’s statement certainly needs debate.

This also needs some debate;

The federal government paid for activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied to tour some of the world’s most repressive Islami­c regimes last Novem­be­r, promoting her book about being a Sudanese-Egypt­ian-Australian Muslim woman who wears the hijab.

The tour, which included stops in Saudi Arabia, where women are flogged for adultery and are not permitted to drive, was funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, which declined yesterday to reveal the cost.

Why would DFAT feel a need to dish out taxpayers funds to promote a book in the Middle East advocating hijab wearing ?

Trump and the Climate Change scam

The left are panicking about Trump’s dismissal of Climate change and threat to pull out of the Paris Accord. Andrew Light, who served as senior adviser to Todd Stern, Obama’s special envoy on climate change who led America’s Paris negotiations, says it’s too early to know Trump’s intentions.

But, apparently, it’s not to early to make this outrageous statement.

He says climate change, for instance, is widely seen to have played a role in igniting the Syrian civil war that has led to millions of refugees and the emergence of the so-called Islamic State

And they wonder why skeptics exist.

From The Age so you know it’s left skewed but it always pays to read the enemies words

Trump vs Turnbull

Turnbull gives a speech after Trump’s win and says to Australia“don’t panic”; Frydenburg called Trump a “dropkick”; Bishop said before the election that Trump threatens Australia’s interests and the leader of the Opposition calls Trump “Barking Mad”

There’s payback due there and I can’t understand why Australia is upset at Trump giving Turnbull a hard time.

He deserves it. We deserve it.

What benefit does the US get from taking in our 1250 country shopper problems?. None that I can see particularly after Trump’s pause on accepting people from the same area that the 1250 come from.

If he takes them he is backing down on one of his election promises and, after all, the entire deal was set up by Turnbull and Obama during OBama’s lame duck days.

Talk about leaving a land mine for your replacement.

All this hassle over a bunch of country shoppers from the Middle East paying tens of thousands of dollars for a seat in a boat to take them to Centrelink.

They are simply not worth the diplomatic damage.

A deal will eventually be stitched up but I’m with Trump on this one.


At the Innauguration….Trump supporter Brighde Staatz, from The Gap in Brisbane is posing for photos with her husband, former US baseball player Justin Staatz, and their 18-month-old son Mason. 

I am a Trump fan, I agree with a lot of his policies and I don’t like Obamacare”

Why not?

Well, it appears that her health insurance premiums have skyrocketed under Obamacare.

She says;

For my family of three I pay $1500 a month and that’s absurd in my opinion. Ordinary Americans can’t afford that.

Only a socialist would think that’s reasonable.
