And some – like Arthur Sinodinos – get sent to the US to be ambassadors. The question from this report is why Shane Wright would ask Bruce Wolpe for his opinion.
Wolpe is commenting on Trump:
Bruce Wolpe is a Senior Fellow (non-resident) at the United States Studies Centre. Bruce is a contributor on US politics to Sky News Australia, appearing regularly across its programs and for breaking news. In recent years, Bruce has worked with the Democrats in Congress during President Barack Obama’s first term, and on the staff of Prime Minister Julia Gillard. He has also served as the former PM’s chief of staff.
He is author of a new book, The Committee, a study of President Obama’s legislative agenda in Congress (University of Michigan Press, 2018). From 1998-2009, Bruce was a senior executive at Fairfax Media in Sydney. He is also the author of Lobbying Congress: How The System Works (Congressional Quarterly Books, 1990, 1996).
For the record, not one genius at the USSC predicted that Trump would win the 2016 election. Not one thought it was possible. in a two-horse race.
Labor may never understand why they lost
They want to change society and redistribute power … maybe … just maybe … we don’t want that.
And maybe we don’t think people like you can be trusted with that awesome responsibility.
Just a thought.

Trump orders wholesale declassification
This is a game changer in the Trump-Russia narrative.
This is huge.
When the redacted documents are released by Attorney-General William Barr, the deep state will have nowhere to hide. Nowhere:
President Trump has given Attorney General William Barr “full and complete authority to declassify information” related to the origins of the federal investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The move is the strongest sign yet that Trump is taking serious action to “investigate the investigators” and has found a willing champion in Barr, who rankled Democrats last month when he said “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign.
The White House issued a memorandum to the heads of several agencies Thursday instructing them to cooperate with Barr’s inquiry, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Department, the State Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Treasury Department, the Homeland Security Department, and the Energy Department.
The Energy Department? Why the Energy Department? Because of Joe and Hunter Biden in Ukraine.
Biden just lost his bid to become US President because of Biden Sr’s dodgy dealings in Ukraine regarding his son.
Take that to the bank.
In 2016, Biden reportedly threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees unless Ukraine removed a top prosecutor, who was later voted out. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, reportedly served on the board of an energy company that the prosecutor had been looking into.
Reportedly? Ummmm …
Theresa May resigns as UK PM
Paving the way for Boris Johnson to be UK PM.
Please, God, make it happen:
Germany and the Jews
A German official said in an interview Saturday that Jews should avoid wearing traditional religious caps known as kippahs “everywhere, all the time” in public in the country due to the rising antisemitism.
Yahoo News reported that Felix Klein, the country’s commissioner on anti-Semitism, made the comments in an interview published Saturday by the Funke regional press association.
Anti-semitism has may forms. Including this:
I got clobbered once for comparing Auschwitz with our Nauru/Manus camps…well here is further evidence…the main aim of both Auschwitz and Nauru/Manus was/is to break the human spirit.😢 https://t.co/jNIjiNSJfA
