6 reasons why I support Donald Trump, and why you should too.

1. He is a successful person. While some people believe that Trump is arrogant, because he’s got money, does that mean that other billionaire’s are arrogant too? Does that mean that Bill Gates is arrogant, although we know he isn’t? Come on. If Donald can make money, then he can make America successful. It is in 18 trillion dollars of debt, it can’t pick and choose who it likes, because their economy is the central balance for the globe. They need a successful person.
 
   2. He say’s what he believes in. Most politicians, as we all know, lie all the time, but not Donald Trump. Donald is his own person, and he stands for what he believes in. That is why his speeches can be so weird and jagged, in what he speaks about, because he goes from one topic to another, because he doesn’t write his speeches, he knows them. His speeches don’t sound like polished lines that other politician’s do,  he goes along as he pleases, and he doesn’t need polished lines, or speeches, because those speeches are too often there, because politicians don’t believe in what they say, so they need a speech. Donald doesn’t, proving he believes in what he says. Also, why would Donald lie, when it is so unpopular with the public? If he wanted to lie, he would tell the public what is popular, as to appease the public.

   3. He isn’t swayed by the media. All too often we have politicians saying one thing, but then, once interrogated by the media in an interview, they fall apart, promising all sorts of stupid things that the media want. Donald hasn’t done this, and he hasn’t been swayed by media personalities, in fact, he has stood up to them, proving how strong he is, and what a suitable candidate he is.

   4. He realises what trouble America is in. Clinton has unrealistic goals that won’t do any good for America. She wants half a billion solar panels in America by 2020, and wants all homes to be running on solar energy in ten years. This is not only unrealistic, but it will be so costly, that America’s already 18 Trillion dollars of debt will be extended. Trump will take the less used path,  and take the hard road towards surplus, something Clinton wouldn’t know anything about.

   5. He is strong on defence. Trump has spoken many times in this. He will conquer ISIS. He will take them down. Some people are scared of Trump. No one is scared of Clinton.  Why would a person who isn’t scary be better than a scary person when it comes to taking down ISIS.

   6. He is a good negotiator. Let’s face it. In his line of work, negotiations are a large part of life, so why should we trust Clinton to make negotiations when Trump is so much more qualified?

Bolt's got it right. Lambie cannot be excused.

Political commentator Andrew Bolt is absolutely right when he comments on Tasmanian senator Jacquie Lambie's comments on Cory Bernardi.

Lambie commented on the ABC, which is meant to be a fair and just national television station for all of the Australian population, saying that the Bernardi was 'Born with a silver spoon up me rear end' attitude, and made the claim that the South Australian politician is an 'arsehole'.

The first question to be asked is why was the ABC allowing this imbecile to make such disrespectful comments.

                              Senator Jacquie Lambie and Kitchen Cabinet Host Annabel Crabb

All it is is a political move by Lambie which she knew the ABC would support. This is just another step by the ABC to prove its bias and stupidity. It seems as if the ABC wants to be banned.

Cory Bernardi made an outstanding response on Friday; 'Given the only conversation I've ever had with Jacqui Lambie was listening to her complain about not getting paid enough, I'm not sure she knows anything about me,' he told Daily Mail Australia.
'However, everyone has issues in their life so I just hope she keeps getting the help she needs to deal with hers.' This is something that Lambie wouldn't have the brains to say, and just shows the respect that Bernardi shows, even when wronged by an idiot.

Now, another issue is what Bolt spoke about in his blog post. He asked why Lambie was allowed to get away with these comments, when, if a Liberal politician so right as Bernardi had made these comments, then he would be labelled sexist, and bigotry. This is just another media attack on a respectful man who got where he is by working hard. The media needs to stop being so bias, and look at the political spectrum evenly.

These comments should bring two things.
Ms Lambie said Liberal backbencher Cory Bernardi was an 'a***hole', 'born with a silver spoon up his rear end'
The ABC having its funding taken, which would save the Australian taxpayer millions, and, the bringing down of Lambie, but of course, this won't happen in our country of 'justness' and 'political correctness'.

Lastly, Kitchen Cabinet host Annabel Crabb should have made a move to defend Bernardi, or at least do something to keep Lambie's idiotic comments less sharp than the knife she was holding. Doing nothing made Crabb seem like an idiot, which she probably is.

The Budget’s ‘Cigarette price hike’

It is estimated that by 2020, it will cost $40, to buy a standard packet. Sure, this may be good, but there are two issues that need to be addressed.
Are we breaching on the rights of smokers and does the government really want to stop smokers?

The rights of smokers are basically the same of the non-smoker. You are allowed to do what you want with your body (within boundaries, of course) permitting you take the consequences, but this price hike may be infringing those rights. Sure, it doesn’t make smokers stop smoking, it does cause many to stop, something they may not be able to cope with, or like. People get the point, smoking is bad, yet if they choose to smoke, it is their choice. Why is the government making these people stop when it is their choice? I live in a family where one parent smokes, and I don’t like it. Smoke is toxic, and very dangerous, and I believe that we should try to stop people from smoking, but raising prices to this amount is going to have some negative side effects;
For those who are truly addicted to smoking, no price hike will stop them. This will put them in a great financial crisis of their own, trying to rake up enough money to pay for cigarettes and keep a roof over their families heads. After this, the family may start losing money, having the same effect of gambling. After a while, the situation may become so dire, that the family has to go on welfare, costing the government more money. Has the government looked at this?


Secondly, we need to ask ourselves the question of whether the government really wants to make smokers quit. I heard on the radio last night, on 2GB, a caller mention a great point. If the government really wanted people to stop smoking, they would ban it. This price hike is to rake in more money. Sure, it will help with our economic situation, but the idea of stopping smokers, the idea that the government wants people to stop smoking, is really a cover story. Sure, there is that part to it, but the government needs the money, and this is one of the ways it will get it.

It's easy to place the blame on Tony

During Bronwyn Bishop’s final parliamentary speech, she laid the blame on Tony Abbott, stating ‘I was asked to reign to protect Tony Abbott’.
 
This is the politician that, when in strife, found support in Tony Abbott. The politician that then knifed Abbott in the back during the Leadership Spill shot a sharp glare at the former Prime Minister whom she easily laid the blame on. Ms Bishop, you brought it on yourself, and your seeing the repercussions now. Say goodbye to politics, and politics, say goodbye to Ms Bishop.


I used to favour Ms Bishop, mainly for her defence against the savage attack that was brought on by the media. When the media could have chosen any other politician to attack for unnecessary
taxing, they chose her. Where women were once held upon the altar at the ABC (during the Gillard years), that ideology seemed to fly out the window when the chance to attack yet another of the Liberal Party’s ranks came up. But after I saw how Bronwyn Bishop turned her back ruthlessly on Tony Abbott in the leadership spill, I despised her, and am now glad that we can see her back, leaving the spectrum of politics for good.

Manus Island's detention centre CLOSING,

On Monday morning, in bad weather, the first reported asylum seeker boat arrived in to years. This comes in light of the Papua New Guinean government announcing that they will close Manus Island.  If this is to occur, then the refugees located there will have to be relocated, or allowed into society. This is probably what these Sri Lankan refugees were hoping; that they would get into the Manus island refugee camp, and get moved into the Australian society.


Malcolm Turnbull, you stabbed Tony Abbott in the back, how about we see some action. What about Operation Sovereign Borders? We need some backbone, not for these refugees to be moved to the Cocos Islands. Malcolm Turnbull, the country is watching you, and you need to follow in Tony Abbott’s footsteps, and use some backbone., because if you don’t, then more lives will be lost at sea.

The Leadership Spills

The devastation of Leadership Spills

When a country votes for a leader, they do not expect that leader to be deposed a few years later, but it happens in Australia, the country that is ‘so democratic’.

The problem not only lies with the democratic unfairness of it, but with the policy views. With the latest leadership spill, which resulted in Tony Abbott being voted out 54 to 44, Malcolm Turnbull is the Prime Minister, but has a totally different set of views from Tony Abbott, so when everyone voted for Tony Abbott’s views, it was for nothing? Because Tony Abbott was against Global Warming, Same Sex Marriage and a Republic, yet Malcolm Turnbull agrees with it. We have a gay MP under Malcolm Turnbull and have already seen Turnbull being kicked out of leadership for his disastrous ‘green house emissions tax scheme’ as opposition, and while he has learnt from his mistake, he can’t have changed his views that dramatically! And the traditional conservative views that the Liberal party once stood for, are in danger of being thrown out the window. If it weren’t for the National’s, then who knows what might happen to Tony Abbott’s election promises and beliefs.

It first happened when Julia Gillard deposed Kevin Rudd  on  the 23rd June, 2010, and then again, in Gillard’s first full term, or not so, when Rudd deposed Julia Gillard. It has happened again. Malcolm Turnbull, or, now that he’s shown his true colours, Malcolm Turncoat, has deposed Tony Abbott, who was voted in. Does democracy stand for nothing in 21st century Australia. We live in times where commentators like Andrew Bolt are sued on the basis of section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act, which dictates;
d Kevin Rudd, on the 24
‘it is unlawful for someone to do an act that is reasonably likely to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” someone because of their race or ethnicity’
We are worried to “offend” someone, but suddenly, Australia thinks it is okay to depose someone who has gained a position rightfully, or is it just the ‘agenda-crazy politicians’ who need to fill their personal agenda’s? Is it those who try to look the ‘Mr Reasonable’, but have no sense of democracy? So now Turncoat’s been in power for more than 6 months, what has he got to show for it? Nothing but a submarine deal that results in Australia’s navy getting a new submarine in 2031, and the last in 2060. What a mess. Australia doesn’t want him. He was axed form Liberal leadership for a reason, but he just couldn’t keep his greedy hands off the position he always coveted. He let Tony Abbott go the hard mile, fixing the problems that Labour brought into the country, and as soon as things seem to be getting better for Australia, Turnbull jumps in, without doing a single thing.

We all knew that the Liberals would win in the Canning by-election, but because the polls looked to be in ‘dire straits’, Malcolm decided to take the position he coveted for himself, on the basis of polls. Since when have votes secured anything? Does this now mean that Turnbull should be kicked out of office because the polls aren’t in his favour? Of course we should, but it won’t happen, because Tony Abbott is too nice, and a nice man gets nowhere. But when Malcolm Turnbull ‘trounced the Canning by-election’, it somehow came as a shock, as if it wouldn’t have happened under Tony Abbott, when the polls, which Malcolm so relies on, showed that Tony Abbott would win more than Turnbull actually did. Malcolm couldn’t wait a few days, for Tony Abbott to prove himself, to show what he was made of, because Malcolm knew what would happen. Malcolm knew Tony would ‘trounce’ just as much as Turnbull would, and he knew that a win in Canning would bring confidence to the government, which in turn, would bring confidence to the Prime Minister, which is not what Malcolm wanted, well, not if the confidence was in regards to Tony, so he challenged Tony a few days before, making it out that Tony Abbott did not have the power that the country needs, and that Tony cannot provide the confidence that the country needs, and he took the position for himself, fulfilling yet another wish in Turnbull’s political agenda.
 
When a leadership spill occurs, it creates distrust in the government, and right now, Australian doesn’t know where to turn. When they voted for Labour, they found disunity, distrust, and a lack of policies that help Australians, so they turned to the Liberals, but it just goes to show, a nice man never goes anywhere. Tony Abbott was too nice. Bill Shorten should have been out of politics long ago. As soon as he tried for the Labour party, the Liberals should have known that they couldn’t trust this man, yet here he is, ruling over us all. Now the Liberal party is a write-off. No insurance company could save them. Those 54 MP’s that voted for Malcolm Turnbull have brought this once fruitful party to its knees. Even Brown Bishop, who, when in times of discredit and distrust, found trust in Tony Abbott, turned her back on her saviour, and voted for Malcolm Turnbull. In Question Time a few months back, Malcolm Turnbull said this. “The Labour party make the great mistake, of seeing their opponents through the prism of their own disunity. Of imagining that we [The Liberal Party] are as fractured and faction-reeded as them [The Labour Party]. Imagining that we have got … dissention in our ranks” Well, it looks like Malcolm Turnbull truly is the “hero of the gung-ho Lazy Susan”, and if Tony Abbott is speaking the truth when he says that the Abbott era is over, it looks like we’re stuck with him. And now we’ve seen the true Malcolm Turncoat, it looks like the right I merging into the left, but more evident than that, it looks like ‘our current prime minister has not been capable of providing the economic leadership our country needs.

BRING BACK TONY ABBOTT!
