    Yes – America first. World has to accept this.

    Stopping the enemy orcs of obama from using lobbying positions to sabotage the Trumpening is denying resources to enemy forces, why not do that in Australia?.

  3. John Comnenus

    More winning. He better not do an Abbott when he gets in.

    I think his dressing down of the media moguls was to let them know he doesn’t respect nor need them whilst telling his base I am in all the way on what I said I woudl do.

    This is what a Real leader sounds and looks like
    Here is the transcript from Donald Trump’s Monday video:

    Today, I would like to provide the American people with an update on the White House transition and our policy plans for the first 100 days.

    Our transition team is working very smoothly, efficiently, and effectively. Truly great and talented men and women, patriots indeed are being brought in and many will soon be a part of our government, helping us to Make America Great Again.

    My agenda will be based on a simple core principle: putting America First.

    Whether it’s producing steel, building cars, or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, in our great homeland: America – creating wealth and jobs for American workers.

    As part of this plan, I’ve asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs. It’s about time.

    These include the following:

    On trade, I am going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country. Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores.

    On energy, I will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of American energy – including shale energy and clean coal – creating many millions of high-paying jobs. That’s what we want, that’s what we’ve been waiting for.

    On regulation, I will formulate a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated, it’s so important.

    On national security, I will ask the Department of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to develop a comprehensive plan to protect America’s vital infrastructure from cyber-attacks, and all other form of attacks.

    On immigration, I will direct the Department of Labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker.
    On ethics reform, as part of our plan to Drain the Swamp, we will impose a five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave the Administration – and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

    These are just a few of the steps we will take to reform Washington and rebuild our middle class.
    I will provide more updates in the coming days, as we work together to Make America Great Again for everyone.

    Prior to the election it was well known that I have interests in properties all over the world.Only the crooked media makes this a big deal!

  6. struth

    This is the way.
    Never use the main stream media.
    This is just common sense.
    Now Malcom, your turn.
    Waffle away on youtube.
    That should be fun.

    Many people would like to see @Nigel_Farage represent Great Britain as their Ambassador to the United States. He would do a great job!

  8. Robber Baron

    Impressive. That’s a leader folks!

    He’s making Maolcolm look exactly like the very small man that he truly is.

  9. Motelier

    Impressive. That’s a leader folks!

    He’s making Maolcolm look exactly like the very small man that he truly is.

    My poor country, we do not have a leader like that.

    NADT, but the best we could hope for is a war with the US of A. The we would be rebuilt properly.

  10. Michel Lasouris

    I can’t see anything wrong in that. I wish we had him here. It’s not as though we don’t know what is necessary now………

  11. john constantine

    [but malcom got a selfie off hussein obama, that is something they can never take away from him.]

  12. What do you expect when both our major parties are of the Left, each one trying to outdo each other over Leftist ideals and aims.

    Sack sloppy joe and replace the tub with Jennifer Hawkins. I am sure it would mean we get the high level access we need.

  14. Nelson Kidd-Players

    Or Greg Norman.

  15. Eyrie

    Motelier, we could get President Trump to just invade and annex Australia. After some years as a territory we could become a State or two. Think of the savings in State government costs for years.
    Civil aviation would benefit hugely by being run under US rules. I’d love to see all the CASA employees turned out into the street.

  16. Entropy

    Maybe Blair could run a poll on who the best Ambassador to a Trumpen USA would be.

  17. Impressive. That’s a leader folks!

    He’s making Maolcolm look exactly like the very small man that he truly is.

    No! No! Maocolm is a fiscally responsible closet libertarian!

    He will repeal 18C and remove obstructive taxes on small business, thus revitalising our economy and creating real jobs in the private sector!

    *thrashes wildly*

  18. Arky

    I may have been wrong about the man.
    He may actually do it.
    Christ I hope so.
    I love the way he does the little asides commenting on his own speech:
    “About time”.
    “So important”.
    It is a really effective rhetorical style I have not heard employed before by a politician.

    DT is not a politician, as we have come to expect. Reminds me of past Australian PMs and USA Presidents, when we had only a few newspapers who actually report events and there were no other forms of communications.

  22. Ubique

    Wow. The green-left MSM is working itself up into a frenzy over Trump’s selection of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.

    It’s dawning on the MSM that Trump is not intending to placate the green-left establishment empire – he intends to utterly destroy its monuments, plough the ruins and salt the ground.

  23. Mother Lode

    Many people would like to see @Nigel_Farage represent Great Britain as their Ambassador to the United States.

    Dunno about that. I think he is more beneficial to Britain and America (and us) being a gadfly stinging the self-serving policy makers in the UK, rather than living in the US passing on shitty policy from a now less nervous UK establishment.

  24. Dr Faustus

    Somehow, Trump’s pledge to encourage innovation in the US economy sounds more credible than Turnbull’s $500 million (over 4 years) investment in STEM, coding, and ‘jobs of the future’.

  25. Baldrick

    Drain the Swamp. What’s not to like.

  26. Mark from Melbourne

    From the linked Atlantic piece…

    The DOJ has more than 110,000 employees and a budget of $27 billion.

    The fact that they are able to write this without using an exclamation mark says it all, really.

    Mind you, on a per heads of population basis, we do little or no better…

  27. JohnA

    Remove 2 regulations before implementing a new one.

    He has obviously read and understood Peter Drucker and Bob Townsend (“Up The Organization”).

    Go, man, go! 🙂

  28. Biota

    A man who knows how to use power.

  29. Gilas

    Magnificent!

    –and I believe he means every word. No double-speak or pander to globalist interests.

    Motelier, we could get President Trump to just invade and annex Australia. … We can only hope.

    Simply magnificent.

  30. The BigBlueCat

    Trump is showing how it should be done – even if you don’t like what he says, his approach is to be direct and firm. Malcolm Turnbull needs to take note of this – Scott Morrison shows flashes of this, and Tony Abbott was also pretty good at it. Our politicians need to stop with the useless rhetoric and double-speak and get on with business. Don’t hide anything behind waffle, just say what it is that needs to be said and get on with it. And know and believe what you’re saying.

    I recognise that the GOP has control of the Congress and of the Senate and so Trump can speak with an air of leadership that comes from authority. We need clearer choices in Australia – we have 2 leftist political leaders whose intent is to either keep or take power for no other reason than personal ambition, but neither show the leadership necessary to guide this country forward.

  31. H B Bear

    And know and believe what you’re saying.

    … aaaand there is Waffleworth’s problem.

  32. Up The Workers!

    I wonder whether all those pompous bigoted Leftards of “Political Editors”. activists, propagandists, toadies and professional mis-handlers of the truth, suddenly sense that their jobs might be on shaky ground indeed, if THIS national Leader has a long memory and the testicular fortitude to do something about past untruths?

    How different to our own “fearless Leader” who keeps grovelling to vile A.L.P. tyre-pumpers and no matter how many times he is ridiculed by ranting Labor bigots, he still lacks the sense to acknowledge the 100% bias against him, or the spine to do anything about it.

    The day he dies, I suggest that his thick hide be harvested (he has plenty of it) and installed as the front doormat at the A.L.P.B.C. studios.

    In death, as in life.

  33. Noodles Romanoff

    “On regulation, I will formulate a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated, it’s so important.”

    You magnificent bastard Trump.

    Commence the draining.

  34. Empire GTHO Phase III

    Or Greg Norman.

    To which the Australian School of J’ism would respond:

    “but he’s just a golfer!”

    To which the correct response would be:

    “So was the 44th POTUS. At least Norman is a professional.”

  35. Walter Plinge

    Motelier, we could get President Trump to just invade and annex Australia. After some years as a territory we could become a State or two.
    Or we could imitate the plot of The Mouse That Roared with Malcolm Turnbull in Peter Sellers’ roles.

  36. Hugh

    I love it that he says “creating WEALTH and jobs…”, putting wealth first. A tiny detail, but how subversive!!

    For eons (since Keynes, probably) pollies of all sides have brayed about the need to “create jobs”. Jobs schmobs. You expand the public service by 50%, you create “jobs”. But you don’t create wealth. In fact the country is bound to be the poorer for it, excepting a privileged few.

    Just concentrate on getting the state out of the frigging way and letting people create wealth for themselves. The jobs – real jobs – will follow.

    God bless that man.

  37. Linden

    meanwhile here in Melbourne a violent criminal who was arrested after a wild across town car chase finishing up on the west gate bridge being blocked by several police has been given bai!!l, even though he has been given bail how many times now? with a long string of offences to be brought before the courts, Victoria Melbourne now the CRIME capital of Australia! If some of these Hollywood entertainers want to quit the US I think I would interested in doing a deal with them LOL

  38. Nerblnob

    Just concentrate on getting the state out of the frigging way and letting people create wealth for themselves. The jobs – real jobs – will follow.

    That is what the media now call “far right”.

    No wait.

    “Extreme right wing”.

    Hmm. That doesn’t sound scary enough.

    “Deeply right wing extremist”.

    Or maybe just “hate speech”.

  39. Linden

    That’s one aspect of Trump that I will be fascinating to watch, a business man in charge for once, one who is not totally indoctrinated in the grubby of world of insider politics; if that brief press release is any indication then a whole bunch of public servants are also in for an interesting time, and god bless their little hearts.

    for fun he should regularly introduce toothless regs, just to see what can be gotten rid of.

    It will all depend on if he can bring the house of reps and the senate with him. No guarantee there. They are real politicians. AKA scum.

  42. Yohan

    A lifetime ban on lobbying for foreign governments.

    Oy Vey, this is VERY anti semitic.

  43. Yohan

    By demanding a lifetime ban on foreign lobbying, this essentially will exclude all those ‘dual citizens’.

    Boris Johnson:

    We have a first-rate ambassador in Washington doing a very good job of relating both with the present administration and the administration to be and there is no vacancy for that position

    Game, Set and Match to Boris.

  45. Zatara

    You have to love the fact that he once again bypassed the media by cutting his own youtube video to get his message out.

    Then he ripped their arrogant heads off in a meeting where they thought they would be calling the shots and, I suspect, told them to get their collective act together and start acting like journalists or get used to being bypassed entirely.

    Never thought I’d say it but thank goodness for twitter and youtube.
