Dan Mitchell in Chile.

Our man Dan reports from Chile. Compare with Venezuela and also South Africa. What could go wrong with a government dominated by the African National Communist Party? That is a reference to a report that the party rivals are killing each other off in numbers using hired hitmen.

    Imagine how prosperous Chile would be if only they were smart enough to dynamite all their power plants and then borrow money from the Tyrant to replace the coal power with shiny new chicom slave labour solar panels.

    Then dump all their irrigation water out to sea unused.

    Then import mass millions of the worlds poorest people to borrow money interest only to boost their house prices and consume government services.

    Like our turnbullites did.

    Imagine how much better than Chile we will be under shorten once our national drug of dependence, corruption, becomes fully legalised for use in public.

    Comrades.

    Augusto Pinochet was the greatest leader of the last 200 years.

    We miss him each and every day.

    God bless you Generalissimo.

    We’ve gone from a Trumble nosedive to a Slo Mo train wreck.

    LOL… Well said John Constantine.

    So… Who’s gonna be our Augusto Pinochet? Because we are increasingly in dire need of one. I’d rather a Trump, but I’d settle for a Pinochet if we have to. 😉

    From the web site.
    The following key points reflect the NSW Jewish Community’s perspective on admission of asylum seekers to Australia:

    We affirm the Australian Government’s right to establish and maintain its own immigration policy and to screen all potential immigrants. The admission of asylum seekers is a humanitarian act, and differs from other aspects of immigration policy. It also is subject to international law in a way that other immigration policy is not.

    The Australian Jewish Community reaffirms its view that Australia’s Government and the Parliament should work constructively with other governments and appropriate non-government organisations to ameliorate the plight of refugees around the world and in Australia, and to implement Australia’s important legal and moral obligations with respect to refugees.

    In that context there needs to be:

    an end to a system in which many refugee applicants – including women, children, the elderly and those with special needs – are subject to non-reviewable mandatory detention. Non-reviewable mandatory detention is wrong for refugees and asylum seekers, other than those reasonably suspected of wrongdoing, for whom reviewable detention may be appropriate.

    an end to the temporary protection visa regime because the grant of only temporary protection is a breach of Australia’s obligations under Article 31 of the Refugee Convention. The Convention envisages prompt and effective assessment of claims to refugee status, so that those who are entitled to protection as refugees are admitted without having to face further discrimination, and those who are not entitled to refugee status are dealt with in accordance with existing immigration laws.

    an end to the application of dehumanising labels to asylum seekers and refugees and inappropriate discrimination against onshore asylum seekers.

    We particularly call on the Australian Government not to be tempted by present exigencies to veer from Australia’s important legal and moral obligations with respect to refugees, and we support Australia’s continued commitment to the Refugee Convention.
    We also take this opportunity to acknowledge again the great benefits that multiculturalism, aided by immigration, has created for Australian society as a whole. The Jewish community of New South Wales respects all ethnic and religious communities and looks forward to continuing harmonious relationships with them long into the future.

    Chile ,where the Army does the goose step ,wgere the muslims learned teaching people to fly without parachutes is an effective way of getting rid of unwanted coomos and poofs . Quite a few comrades went to join marx from helicopters I am told, “he died in an air accident “went on the death certificate. Allende was even worse that climton or shorten ,well just a bit.

    Where does the J*wish community stand on 18C?

    Deplorable does this belong on this thread?

    Since the de-colonialisation of African states began in the 1950s, there has been a succession of Big Men (aka dictators, one-party state enforcers, kleptocrats) who have committed murder and genocide to keep their power and sock away the wealth of their nations.
    That pattern continues to this day. Read up on it. Nkrumah, Mobutu, Mengistu, to name a few early ones. More recently Mugabe followed exactly the pattern laid down for the second half of the 20th century. African politics is not just broken, it is not reformable.
    The Chinese might do their dough in that part of the world, as have many before them.
