    Obama purged a lot of top brass early on in his admiration.

    True … he also purged a lot of the departments and brought in “his” people. [Which Trump (like Tony Abbott) left in place – presumably as a conciliation token – and to his detriment they worked against him]. It is a lesson well understood by the left.

  2. Our man, Riccardo, going toe2toe on twitter with one of the leading anti Lockdown/psy-op guys.
    He’s winning, natch.
    @WakeAustralia is no joke, he has some interesting takes.
    But I think the psy-op is the psy-op.
    Or I’ve been taking CrazyPills again?

    I wonder if it’s years of hormonal manipulation from the contraceptive pill that’s making them so emotionally incompetent? Almost as if they have permanent PMT.

    I do believe the Pill has had a marked and serious effect on Western women.
    For one thing, a very large number of them have become totally weird looking. It’s beyond food. They’re simply unlike the females of non-Pill cultures. They’re evolving to be Michael Moore. I don’t say this as an anti-larger lady misogynist rant. I like healthy bigger lasses. But there’s something else going on, I think.

    Revolting bitch.

    White progressive women.

  5. Trump, the supreme Dragon Energy troll decided to take a walk in the Swamp One Day.
    Maybe he didn’t know how deep it was?
    It’s a big organisation to take hold of – the US government. He didn’t have the shovel-ready candidates to put everywhere.
    Obama did.
    Weird, huh?

  6. But Trump learns with the Quickness.

    Obviously not, because …

    Can we have a Nigella t-shirt reveal now, please Sinclair?

  8. C.L.

    Re the new High Court appointments…
    I was disappointed that Morrison appointed a Victorian – Simon Steward.

    Victoria should have been PUNISHED, Scott. Do I have to explain why?

    One man/one woman, one Sydney/one Melbourne.

    FMD: appoint a maverick from North Queensland and a bloke from the Territory.
    Think outside of the bloody box.

  9. Stimpy – am I losing it?
    Can a first year law apprentice really have me Committed?
    It’s a worry!
    Help

    Trump would have to in some Mississippi backwater to find replacements. The swamp is deep.

    Trump is leaving notes for (trolling) the journalists in his entourage:

    For sure. It’s a double edged sword and I think there is every likelihood that it had an impact with Hillary.

    “Think outside of the bloody box.”

    Am not sure Morrison is capable of it.

  14. caveman

    Good to see everyone out and about in Melbourne, but the compulsory mask wearing is a joke, they have them half hanging off their faces when drinking coffee and eating and then cover up again. It is all about control.

  15. Notes in AF1?
    There’s not enough LOLs in the world.

  16. I’m flat out telling people to take the stupid things off!
    It won’t be long now.
    But still mass compliance?
    Lol
    Marx&Alinsky&Soros& “Generation bloodlines” – you intelligent swine!
    Just overreached right near the finish line ,dough.
    Sorry!
    All your political pendulum belong us now, homeboy.

  17. dover_beach

    ABC news still has nothing about the Bobulinski interview. Nothing. Listening now to Tom Elliott to see if the Nine US correspondent covers it just before 5pm.

    Scotty-from-Marketing?
    Probably couldn’t find a plastic toy in a Corn Flakes box.

  19. Hehe – the People are spinning being at the pub.
    The tide just turned.
    The updated MAGA hat is working beautifully.
    Lots of looks from behind masks.
    Most positive or neutral, 20% negative/anger
    A group of young dudes rolled out, say 18-21?
    Noticed the hat, one said “love the hate,man” the others grinning.
    We got the Uts.
    I’ve noticed this a lot, like our man, Brad, in WWZ.

    Nothing up at The Age. Nothing at the Guardian Australia. Nothing at The Australian. I suppose they’re all waiting for the ink to arrive.

    That’s really funny DB, nothing in Australian or WSJ. NY Post has it though

    not true. just in the VA, Pence said they fired 2500 employees that weren’t along with the gameplan

  23. Avi Yemeni, posted 20 mins ago:
    People circled by cops in Melb & dozens issued a $1600 fine.
    Cops set up a temporary police station in the driveway of a servo, to book everybody on the spot.
    People were minding their own business, one chick says she was standing while her girlfriend got a drink of water, another bloke was in Hungry Jacks & stepped out to see what the commotion was (a fist fight apparently) & got arrested then fined.

  24. Shy Ted

    Don’t worry, TooBob, he’s only POTUS for a few more days. Your nightmare will be over Nov3. All the polls agree.

  25. dover_beach

    WSJ

    They had all the material for days but have refused to run this story. As Tucker says at the end of the program, there was huge pressure on Fox News Channel not to run this story. Bobulinski has a team of former SEALs protecting his family which he for the moment has to stay away from.

    Lincoln Project Mocks Trump With Fake Retro Ad Pushing Covid Drug | The 11th Hour | MSNBC

    ROFL. Numbers is back with another Lincoln Project astroturf advertisement.

    There’s jut one tiny one problem with that Numbers.

    Amazing! Anti-Trumper ‘Lincoln Project’ Predicts a Second Term for President Trump (27 Oct)

    Reporter Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept called the group “grifters.”

    “One of the most impressively successful grifts in US politics in years: a bunch of failed, washed-up, discredited GOP lifers — many responsible for some of the worst sleaze of the Bush/Cheney era — re-branded themselves as #Resistance liberals and made themselves rich off them.”

    And now The Lincoln Project is turning itself into a media company to Hoover up more cash and turn it into commercials, podcasts, films and pocket change for former White House senior aide Kellyanne Conway’s husband and his friends long after President Trump leaves office.

    Though progressives and other Never-Trumpers appreciate the help to defeat Trump, Left-leaning The Daily Beast is tiring of the grift.

    “If the Lincoln Project were serious about winning converts to the Never Trump cause, it would be wrestling with the convictions of conservatives that the Democratic Party stands against or is unmoved by.
    […]
    They aren’t.
    […]
    As the accountability organization Open Secrets points out, “The Lincoln Project reported spending nearly $1.4 million through March. Almost all of that money went to the group’s board members and firms run by them.” “

    Ooh, that stings! I hope you’re getting a cut Numbers, because it’d sure be sad if you were posting their fake videos because you believed them.

    People circled by cops in Melb & dozens issued a $1600 fine.

    I will never forget this shit.

    Cops set up a temporary police station in the driveway of a servo, to book everybody on the spot.

    Do they realise what tools they look like to the rest of the planet?

    They’re playing Dan’s song

  30. Trump needs to Rally in NY.
    Do it, god Emperor!!

    I will never forget this shit.

    I will never forgive it.

    That’s last.
    Losers!

  33. Arky

    That’s it.
    I’m taking arse and kicking names.
    This 21st century shit just doesn’t cut it anymore.
    Firstly, we need some decent bloody rock music. No more of this written by a team in a morning to a formula crap. Real people, real music and some genuine rebellion.
    2. I want movies with cool cars, car chases and random violence for no particular good reason. No more long expositions on why some fucker feels like glassing some xunt. You don’t need a reason.
    C). You cannot have a decent realistic car chase if all the cars being made look like a cross between a vacuum cleaner and a space age suppository. Or if they can’t be stolen. Or if they only have a range of 150 km before requiring an hour to recharge. Fuck all this needless shit off and supply the proles with cheap, badly handling and easily stolen vehicular transport with large internal combustion engines and no airbags.
    IV. I don’t give a shit about global warming. There is no global warming. I’m old. The weather is exactly the same. Fuck off.
    5). Foreigners. If you want to come here you better start providing a bit more than you have of late. There are literally billions of you bastards all over the world emerging into first world status. Where’s the contribution? Where’s your equivalent of Levis? Where’s your Coca Cola? Where’s your rock music? Where’s your Burt Reynolds? What the fuck have you people been doing all century? Get off your arses and come up with something we can watch, listen to, drink on a hot day or wear that’s freaking cool.
    6. These fucking sign language mothers. How much longer is that going on? I don’t want to see that shit while some provincial third tier politician is lying to me. Fuck off with that shit.
    7. Stop flying me around the world in an airplane with only two engines. If I’m going to plunge into a mountain range I want to do it at full throttle under four engines. At least four engines. By now they should have eight.
    8. While I’m waiting for that eight engined airplane I don’t want to have to queue with hundreds of other slobs or take anything off and put it in a tray or have my cock scanned and irradiated. Stop it with that shit. No one’s hijacking the thing and if anyone wanted to bl*w it up it would be one of the many dodgy luggage handlers you hire who A: Don’t have to go down with the thing and B: Don’t have to scan their junk before work everyday. You’re not fooling anyone with this shit.
    10. These phones. Piss them off. No one needs to be constantly interacting with their own personalised individually tailored bubble governed by an algorithm in California written by a slimy antifa punk every single Goddamn waking instant. Throw them away. Have some time staring out the window or fantasising about Sarah at the office’s arse like we used to do back when everyone was almost sane.

    Victorian epidemic expert says Melbourne wil not go into a 3rd lockdown because “it’s not been done anywhere in the world”.
