Does the left always win?
OK, put it this way, they certainly never give up. They follow a garbage, freedom-destroying ideology that has never succeeded and yet they continue their fight.
And it’s not even as though they doing it for an afterlife. Leftists don’t believe in it – and why would they when their time on death is so miserable?
Asking why they want to impose their misery on the world is one for psychologists, and whatever the outcome, it remains true that they are relentless.
And they have help pushing their ideology through the media.
Example? The World Today on Tuesday, 10 August.
When they wanted to talk to someone about the new IPCC report, and how it might affect business, did they talk to the Shareholders Association? The Australian Institute of Company Directors? Academics? CPA? Chartered Accountants?
Not even close.
The ABC went to the Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) – a shareholder advocacy group pushing left-wing causes.
Which is like going to your mum for a character reference.
This is how left-wing causes get promoted. This is how they take root.
This is how they win.
When organisations like the ABC lend their credibility to the incredible.
This week: get to know Jack Teagarden
Jack Teagarden was born on 20 Augus 1905.
He played trombone with Louis Armstrong and sang with Satchmo as well.
This is one of their great, beautiful performances together.
It’s always great to watch Armstrong – he makes your world a better place. In this instance, so did Teagarden. This is their most famous song together – Old Rockin Chair. Just perfect:
Is Joe the smartest person Hunter knows? Probably
No matter how bad your life is, just remember: at least your son isn’t Hunter Biden.
And at least you aren’t dumb enough to say – out loud and on tape – that you think he’s “the smartest person” you know.
Joe Biden must hang with some dumb mother … you know whats.
What’s this all about?
And look at the pics.
And the video.
And the transcript.
Here’s a taste from the Daily Mail. In recognition of their genius, here is the heading and the spectacular bullet points. They really excelled themselves here:
EXCLUSIVE: ‘The Russians have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex!’ Hunter Biden is seen in unearthed footage telling prostitute that Russian drug dealers stole ANOTHER of his laptops [yes, that’s the heading!]
- WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT
- Hunter Biden claims Russian drug dealers stole another one of his laptops for blackmail while he was drugged out in a Vegas hotel room in 2018
- Video obtained by DailyMail.com shows Hunter with a naked hooker in 2019 after filming a sex tape and explaining how he believed his laptop was stolen
- Hunter left the camera rolling as he recounted a Las Vegas bender in which he spent ’18 days going round from penthouse suite to penthouse suite’
- The incident would mean Hunter lost a total of three computers, each likely to hold sensitive information on President Joe Biden
- The laptops contain embarrassing pictures, videos and communications of the president’s son
- ‘They have videos of me doing this,’ he said, referring to the filmed sex he just finished. ‘They have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex f***ing, you know’
- Hunter’s claims also raise the possibility that he was targeted as a vulnerable conduit to Joe Biden as part of a foreign intelligence operation.
Holy crap, every Biden is an idiot.
The best bit? Where Hunter thinks he will be able to sell his own sex tape.
He’s that dumb.
Biden behaving badly (the old one this time)
If Trump had done this, he would have been impeached.
The Biden administration has decided to waive sanctions against the company overseeing the construction of Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany, despite bipartisan opposition in Congress and appeals from Eastern European governments.
Republican lawmakers immediately accused the administration of handing Russian President Vladimir Putin a major political victory. Democrats urged the White House to reconsider, and the Kremlin called the news a “positive signal.”
The State Department announced the decision in a report to Congress.
But the real crime is that he is leaving Afghanistan to the Taliban.
When the podcast was recorded,here were reports that the Taliban might take Kabul in a week.
By the time most of you heard the podcast, they had entered Kabul.
This is not going as well as we were told it would:

It’s actually worse – follow the link and look at the other tweets in the chain:
The #Taliban not only seized appr. a hundred US humvees and (MaxxPro) MRAPs at Kunduz airport, but also several US ScanEagle drones.

But at least Biden doesn’t tweet.
Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense under presidents George W Bush and Barack Obama, said Joe Biden “has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades”.
Maybe Joe’s the smartest person Hunter knows.
You would be a fool to trust the US
Australia’s foreign policy is built on the ANZUS Treaty.
We are fools to rely on the US.
After 20 years, the US has ceded control of Afghanistan t the Taliban and created a hidey-hole for Al Qaeda. Remember them?
Seems even some people in the US State Department understand the horrors the US is about to unleash in the most vulnerable in that hell hole:
Afghanistan’s army chief has been sacked after a series of catastrophic defeats that has brought the Taliban to within 150km of Kabul and to the edge of Tarin Kowt in the south, where Australian forces were based for nearly a decade and hundreds of former interpreters are trapped while Canberra determines their fate.
New US intelligence suggests the Taliban is advancing at such speed that insurgents could lay siege to the national capital in a month and have full control of the country before the end of the year.
Afghan officials on Friday said the Taliban have taken the southern city of Kandahar, the 12th provincial capital out of 34 to fall to the insurgents. Southeast Ghazni city fell on Thursday as the Taliban moved closer to encircling the nation’s capital, 20 years after they were ousted by US forces.

Bits and pieces
The impact of Beijing’s trade war has been grossly understated and exporters must work harder to find new markets and stem a potential $23bn economic hit, a new study authored by three former Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade officials has found.
The report — by the University of Adelaide’s Institute for International Trade — also warns the overall impact of China’s sanctions has been masked by robust iron ore exports, a trade which could also collapse as Beijing seeks alternative sources.
And they’re not done with us yet.
Obama picked apart by the City Journal:
In the summer of 2008, Barack Obama was hailed as the healer who would redeem a barren time. (See “Obama, Shaman,” Summer 2008.) He “isn’t really one of us,” journalist Mark Morford opined in the San Francisco Chronicle. “Not in the normal way, anyway. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet.”
At a recent Defence conference in Canberra, a relaxed-looking Peter Dutton was asked how he would fast-track the acquisition of new capabilities for the Australian Defence Force to meet growing strategic challenges posed by China.
“The real joy of this job is I get to deliver programs from decisions that were made one, two, three, even six predecessors ago,” Dutton deadpanned.
“The joy is I can bequeath the same sort of decision-making processes for years to come.”
