    So much for any thought of a grand coalition on the right…

    Statement by the Executive Board

    Following extensive deliberation, the Executive Board of Australian Liberty Alliance has agreed not to join with the Australian Conservatives.

    For four weeks the board participated in negotiations with the leader of the Australian Conservatives, Senator Cory Bernardi. The main areas of disagreement include, organisational structure, policy development and input regarding future candidate selection.

    The Executive Board believes the way forward in our threatened Western society is to be forthright, especially regarding the Islamisation of Australia. We will continue to speak loudly on behalf of the silent majority of Australians.

    Australian Liberty Alliance’s future plans include a well-orchestrated Victorian State election campaign in 2018 and an equally well-planned Federal election campaign in 2019.

    We are proud of past achievements and look forward to an expansive future.

    Yours in Liberty,

    Debbie Robinson
    President

    Calm down, Montell.
    I’ve been harping on you about your tendency to indulge premature victory laps.
    It’s your tell,Montell.

    This Motley fool website is a pain in the arse.
    Taking up the first page of every Google search on any Australian share with their bullshit “Why did XXXX shares bomb/ rocket today”? posts.
    Fuck off you morons.
    Seriously. If you Google search any ASX listed company that is what takes up most of the first page.

    I suspect it’s too late. I loathe lefties; everything they touch turns to shit, and they’ve touched Australia.

    Recovery is possible and sometimes brisk. See Poland and Hungary.

    Still, the commie thugs who ruled the Warsaw Pact nations resurfaced as EU “democrats” and are doing their best to bring down the emancipated success stories of Eastern Europe.

    Australian communists must be banished to Maralinga for the terms of their natural lives. This must be included in the terms of surrender and vigorously enforced. Other popular measures, such as; tarring and feathering, seem crass and unnecessary to me. Still, I wouldn’t object provided banishment is absolute and permanent.

    So China is refusing North Korean coal imports. I would say China has got the Trump message.

  9. Libby Zee

    Trump needs to convince the Chinks to take out the Norks.

    Impossible.
    North Korea is a creature of the Chicoms.

    Correct. If the reported Chinese troop buildup along the Yalu River is factual, they will be there to show support for Pyongyang and to deter any likelihood of precipitate action by the US.

    “Organic Marketside Spring Mix”

    As Kate from Small Dead Animals comments, “organic” is Latin for “grown in pig shit”. Or in this case, bat shit.

    Check out this long, turgid, unoriginal, thick, mentally lazy and exceptionally unfunny rant from Yellow Dog, presumable about Mark Latham:

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/11/inequality-ill-talk-about-inequality-with-your-host-clancy-dackbulge

    This is the sort of outburst that I associate with people who are, as they say, losing it, perhaps Tim Blair is getting to him.

    As Cats know, I’m no fan of Latham, but Yellow Dog hasn’t even taken the trouble to find out about him, preferring to use a sort of generic white-man-in-a-suit baddie as a straw man.

  13. DrBeauGan

    Recovery is possible and sometimes brisk. See Poland and Hungary.

    They had first hand experience of socialism, we’re still getting ours.

    Australian communists must be banished to Maralinga for the terms of their natural lives.

    Is there room for all the lefties? Judging by the Mark Latham video you’d have to shift most of Balmain there, as well as the educators, judges, magistrates and journos.

    And who is going to do the banishing?

  14. Bruce of Newcastle

    If the reported Chinese troop buildup along the Yalu River is factual, they will be there to show support for Pyongyang and to deter any likelihood of precipitate action by the US.

    Also to keep the Nork serfs in Norkistan.
    The Chinese have been careful to minimise the risk of millions of hungry North Koreans flooding over the border, which they will do if given the chance.

  15. Libby Zee

    Mark Latham wrote Tan was typo.

    Firmly tongue-in-cheek. On par with his claim to have spoken to scores of people who believed the first boy on the Sydney Boys High video was gay.

    No merger between the Australian Liberty Alliance and the Australian Conservatives unfortunately. Quite sad really, the conservative / libertarian / right of centre spectrum in Australian politics is way too splintered. Email from the Australian Liberty Alliance:

    Des, I opened your link, saw what it was and then closed it. How can you persevere reading through such wordy rubbish? Sort of defeats the whole reason for a ‘toon.

  19. Slayer;

    The photo shared on a Facebook page called We Are One Australia-National drew immediate criticism for representing what many considered to be a “anti-Islamic statement”.

    It’s probably already been said – I’m still catching up – but I bet it was another muslim false flag operation.

    Sorry, Old Salt, people here just ignore your ramblings, but this one cannot go unchallenged.

    Felt the same myself, Beery, during a bleary moment earlyish this morning, before 7ish when I crawled blissfully back into bed for a bit of a sleep in. Wrote something here on the thread about how Test Pattern (that’s Old Salt too isn’t it?) went disgracefully OTT about Niall Ferguson and Aayan Hirsi Ali’s marriage.


    Here’s a thought for the finish of the fred:

    As for male chest hair, mentioned somewhere above. I love to nuzzle into Hairy’s naked chest or run my fingers through it. He gets me to trim it back with a little secret gadget he keeps for just that purpose during the summer months (pelts can get hot) but winter is always good for a snuggle. 🙂

    Economic Diplomacy
    To make up for the shortfall from North Korea, China has ramped up imports from the United States in an unexpected boon for U.S. President Donald Trump, who has declared he wants to revive his country’s struggling coal sector.

    Eikon data shows no U.S. coking coal was exported to China between late 2014 and 2016, but shipments soared to over 400,000 tonnes by late February.

    This trend was exacerbated after cyclone Debbie knocked out supplies from the world’s top coking coal region in Australia’s state of Queensland, forcing Chinese steel makers to buy even more U.S. cargoes. (read more)

    My Humble opinion
    Here in Australia we sell billions upon billions of tonnes of coal to china and other Country`s , also to Japan and China we sell billions of tonnes , also to Japan we sell billions of tonnes of LPG , we sell these commodities to these Country`s at prices lower than the domestic price in this Country Australia , how to manipulate a market , Japan has bought our Iron ore since the 70s and then proceeded to dump the ore into the ocean for future use , China has been importing coal for the last 20 years , now they have more coal fired power stations than the US soon to also be surpassed by India , mean while China pumps out most of the products that produce those useless ( to a point ) solar panels and those bird killer windy mills that use more CO2 to produce than they save , our Government in Australia is all good with this , we have disappearing industry large power prices and Government with other motives . like lining there own pockets .
    Three cheers for President Donald J Trump
    May he drain the swamp and the influence flow on through out the world .

  22. Don’t tell me we have people on this forum defending the fascist beat down of a passenger by United?
    United and the cop involved are in huge trouble. This will be a monster payout.

    In Trump’s America white Americans will deplore African-America cops dragging an Asian Dr off of a plane.
    Good!

    Interesting, isn’t it?
    As soon as the “Trump” word is mentioned, outcomes appear. Trump now has an excellent weapon to defang airport security, which I believe is a monster out of control.

  23. That incident on United Airlines was utterly despicable.
    FMD.
    Re-posting:

    No, certain Katterlaxans have declared it good business practice.

    United has surveyed the market and decided that $800 was the maximum it would cost the airline to assault and remove the passenger.
    Bad Call.
    Really. Bad. Call.

  24. CL;

    But it’s not about prayer. It’s about Muslims trolling Australians to get as many wins as possible in the very bastions of their culture.

    Correct. It’s one more notch in the Islamic Ratchet.
    This is how they win, one tiny nibble at a time.

  25. Leigh Lowe;

    There are two arms to this.

    Here’s another angle, LL.
    If a pig is about to be butchered, it doesn’t care who it gores, as long as it gores someone.
    Now change ‘pig’ to ‘peasants’ and let us kick a few heads.

  26. Joe;

    …and don’t waste effort on things that don’t need to be done.

    Ain’t that right!
    The Child Bride throws herself at work around the house like it’s an Olympic Event, but all she achieves is the relocation of stuff from one place to the other. It’s like living in a slow moving cyclone, but she is utterly convinced she is the only one who does any housework.
    The stuff I do is never counted of course, because it’s not ‘work’ it’s ‘manplay’.

  27. Baldrick;

    Who exactly did United assault? It seems they called the cops to remove someone who was (at law) trespassing. Then the cops bashed the shit out of him. I don’t see that I’m liable for the conduct after calling the fuzz.

    So who were the coppers?
    United employees/contractors?
    DSS?
    Local coppers?
    It doesn’t seem to have come out, yet.

    Bernardi’s party is finished. He’s signed up bloody Kirralie Smith. She’s an airhead and a waste of space.

    A few months ago I summarised the rival conservative groups in Australia when I said that ALA were a waste of space due to their leader and that Australian Conservatives only did lame memes on social media. Not even I could predict that two levels of the fringe dwelling idiocy could merge so gracelessly.

    God help us is Kirralie Smith as an “Australian Conservative” is the best this country can do for anything that isn’t left wing politics
