Immigration Curbs Key To Conservative Win In Australia


"Turning Back The Muslim Boats" policy is working for Aus.
Immigration Curbs Key to Conservative Victory in Australia and a Lesson for Trump: Electoral events have a way of keeping mainstream political observers humble, especially when the larger message is the strength of conservative nationalism.

A case in point is the recent Australian election, in which the Liberal Party (in American terms, a conservative party) won a victory over the left-leaning Labor Party.  Some of the MSM outlets that couldn’t hide their surprise included the New York Times: “Prime Minister Scott Morrison Seizes a Stunning Win”; the BBC: “Morrison celebrates ‘Miracle’ win”; and CNN: “Labor loses ‘unlosable’ election.”

In the run-up to the May 18 balloting, the conventional wisdom held that Aussie voters were weary of the constant infighting in the incumbent party—Morrison is the third right-of-center prime minister in the last six years—even as minor parties, yet further to the right, have proliferated.  All that confusion was a formula, the pundits said, for a left-wing comeback.

Scott Morrison Won With Put-Australians-First Policy


A decent family-man and devout Christian, our ScoMo the PM
SYDNEY—Scott Morrison has been re-elected May 18 as Australia’s Prime Minister, securing another three-year team for the Liberal-National coalition following an intense five-week campaign in Australia’s federal election. In a victory speech, Morrison said that it was a victory for all the “quiet Australians,” and promised that the government will put Australians first.

The centre-right coalition is edging closer to the 76 seats it needs to have a majority in the parliament. The coalition sits at 74 seats, with the centre-left Labor party on 66, as the counting ended in the late hours of Saturday, May 18.

The results upended pre-election polls which predicted a Labor victory, though it is unclear whether the coalition can govern with an outright majority or will need to negotiate support from independents. The final result may not be known for some time.

Socialists Ganging Up With Islamists To Bring Down US


Bernie Sanders continues with Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America: The Socialists and Islamists have OFFICIALLY ganged up against America in the prelude to the 2020 presidential election. Faiz Shakir is Bernie Sanders’ new campaign.

The not so long ago suspected nightmare of Socialists and Islamists working in tandem against the American people is now a reality unfolding before our very eyes that can no longer be written off as just another conspiracy theory.

Crickets followed Glenn Beck’s announcement on his radio show yesterday that “Faiz Shakir is Bernie Sanders’ new campaign manager. “Socialists and Islamists are working together for the destruction of the Free Market in the West and Israel,” Beck said. “That’s exactly what I laid out in the last chalkboard I laid out on Fox for the last year.”

“On February 21, 2019, Sanders’ campaign announced its national campaign co-chairs: Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen, Rep. Ro Khanna, Our Revolution President Nina Turner, and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. California Rep. Ro Khanna was the first Justice Democrat in Congress.  New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came much later.

Trump Challenging Activist Judges At Supreme Court


Trump Administration to Challenge Authority of Judges to Issue Nationwide Injuctions: The Trump administration is looking for opportunities to have the Supreme Court clarify whether district court judges have the authority to issue nationwide injunctions, according to Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence made the announcement in a May 8 speech to the conservative Federalist Society, telling the audience that President Donald Trump’s administration has faced “unprecedented” obstruction from district court judges.

“The Supreme Court of the United States must clarify that the district judges can decide no more than the cases before them. And it’s imperative that we restore the historic tradition that district judges do not set policy for the whole nation,” Pence said.

“In the days ahead, our administration will seek opportunities to put this very question before the Supreme Court to ensure the decisions affecting every American are made either by those elected to represent the American people or by the highest court in the land,” he added.

War With Iran: US Military Build-Up In Middle East


US Carrier Abraham Lincoln heading for Iran.
Target Iran: U.S. building massive deterrent force in Middle East with carrier, missiles, bombers. Apparently, the intelligence the Trump administration either gathered on its own or received via Israel regarding Iran’s intent to strike American interests in the Middle East in response to new sanctions was pretty solid.

That would explain the shifting of a tremendous amount of military assets and firepower to the region that is currently underway. As Reuters reports, the Trump administration is warning American merchant ships of Iran’s possible intentions as well, even as a top cleric in Tehran threatened the U.S. fleet.

Iran could target U.S. commercial ships including oil tankers, the U.S. Maritime Administration said on Friday, as a senior Iranian cleric said a U.S. Navy fleet could be “destroyed with one missile.” In the latest tense exchange between Tehran and Washington, Iran’s hardline Revolutionary Guards separately said Iran would not negotiate with the United States, a stance that seemed partly aimed at discouraging Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his moderate allies from taking up a U.S. offer of talks.

25% Tariffs: US-China Trade Deficit Narrowing Fast


U.S. Hikes Tariffs on China to 25 Percent as Trade Deficit Narrows, Negotiations Continue: On Friday, the U.S. hiked tariffs on China from 10 percent to 25 percent, a sharp increase worth more than $200 billion amid ongoing trade negotiations. At 9:00 AM EST, the world’s largest and second largest economies will resume talks.

“Talks with China continue in a very congenial manner – there is absolutely no need to rush – as Tariffs are NOW being paid to the United States by China of 25% on 250 Billion Dollars worth of goods & products,” President Trump tweeted early Friday morning. “These massive payments go directly to the Treasury of the U.S.”

The Chinese vowed to retaliate. “China deeply regrets that it will have to take necessary countermeasures,” China’s Ministry of Commerce said in a statement. While Wall Street and D.C. have largely opposed President Donald Trump’s tariff strategy, it is clearly working to reduce the trade gap between the two nations.

Pelosi Let Anti-Israel Moderate Imam Open US Congress


Israel-bashing Imam delivers opening prayer at House of Representatives: Popular American Imam Omar Suleiman, known for his Israel-bashing antics, gave the Ramadan invocation at the opening of Thursday’s House of Representatives session.

Suleiman is the founder and president of the Irving, Texas-based Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research. He was invited to give Thursday's invocation by US Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), a Yaqeen Institute statement said. But back in 2014, Suleiman made a comment on social media alluding to the antisemitic idea that Israel controls American foreign policy, claiming that it is the 51st state.

“We pray for peace, not war," he said. "Love not hate. Benevolence, not greed. Unity, not division. And we commit ourselves to not betraying our prayers with actions that contradict them. Let us be for truth, no matter who, or for is against it." But Imam Suleiman has made several vehemently anti-Israel comments and also seemed to side with Hamas in an August 2014 Facebook post.

Pig Ebola In China: Global Pork Prices Are Skyrocketing


Pig ‘Ebola’ Virus Sends Shock Waves Through Global Food Chain: African swine fever in China will impact global food supply and the Virus will move markets, may influence geopolitics.  

What started with a few dozen dead pigs in northeastern China is sending shock waves through the global food chain. Last August, a farm with fewer than 400 hogs on the outskirts of Shenyang was found to harbor African swine fever, the first ever occurrence of the contagious viral disease in the country with half the world’s pigs.

Forty-seven head had died, triggering emergency measures including mass culling and a blockade to stop the transportation of livestock. Within days, a government notice proclaimed the outbreak “effectively controlled.”

North Koreans Are Horribly Starving: Rations Cut


Fat Kim's nuke-spendings are starving children to near death.
GENEVA (Reuters) - Four in ten North Koreans are chronically short of food and further cuts to already minimal rations are expected after the worst harvest in a decade, the United Nations said on Friday.

Official rations are down to 300 grammes - under 11 ounces - per person per day, the lowest ever for this time of year, the U.N. said following a food security assessment it carried out at Pyongyang’s request from March 29 to April 12.

It found that 10.1 million people were suffering from severe food insecurity, “meaning they do not have enough food till the next harvest,” U.N. World Food Program spokesman Herve Verhoosel said. North Korea’s population is around 25.2 million, according to its Central Bureau of Statistics, the report said.
