New alt right strategy

The US President is getting so much more coverage in Australian media than any other politician that Cory Bernardi is reportedly considering a name-change to Trump.

Chaotic political outlook in Australia

Now thatBernardi has emerged from the Coalition as a prospective new Trump hopefully the Labor Party won’t add to the chaos by producing a new Bernie Sanders or Jeremy Corbyn. Then there’s the truly appalling thought that Lee Rhiannon could emerge as the Greens’ version of Trump.

Political non-alignment

There seems little chance of a close political association between Trump and Turnbull because only one of them is a committed Republican.

Diplomatic breakthrough

There is a feeling in the diplomatic community that if Jerusalem was finally built “in England’s green and pleasant land” there wouldn’t be such a fuss about Trump moving the US Embassy there.

Foxing with Bill

In his interview with Bill O’Reilly Trump failed to convey that while there’s a Russian killer in the Kremlin killers in the US are rather housed in places like San Quentin while the White House is reserved for people killing off the country.

Race slow-down

Pauline’s call for a Royal Commission into Muslims obviously can’t be pursued while Section 18C still applies.

Moving against Malcolm mildly

Commentators believe that instead of removing Malcolm from the leadership through a confrontational spill the Coalition will instead adopt a gentler strategy by moving one by one to become independents.

Escaping the danger zone

Latest reports from the White House indicate that in exchange for the refugees from Nauru and Manus Island that he’s been obliged to accept Trump plans to send to Australia victims of the most appalling and eviscerating abuse; members of his administration for example.
