Reflections on Brexit, the US election and the state of our nation

In the aftermath there are far too many who haven't heard what the people said.

Just like the BREXIT result.  Or Turnbull/Bishop with their base here.

I thought Eric Abetz nailed it yesterday as Trump closed in on the White House.

Compare and contrast with Bill Shorten who says he won't apologise for saying the President of the United States is barking mad - and far worse to boot.  He should have known a lot better than to issue a statement like this on an occasion like this.

Bill you might want to look closer to home for the disrespect of women you say you'll call out.  You could start with denunciation of the CFMEU thugs and their unspeakable treatment of Fair Work Inspectors who happen to be women. And the religion of peace.  And it's a real insight Bill that you qualify honesty with conditions proving it's not an omnipresent feature of your life "the friendship between our countries is strong enough for honesty".  It is but you are not.

Here's a message to the mainstream media - which is falling over itself to justify its position.  This chart says all we need to know about their connectedness with their readers.

Here's Hillary Clinton's concession speech.  As manufactured as always and in my opinion an insight into a totally self-obsessed and dangerous narcissist.  17.30 into the ABC news youtube published video Ms Clinton arrives - at about 24.15 Ms Clinton speaks of her close family and uses a phrase I've never heard anyone use, "And to Bill, Chelsea etc...my love for you means more than I can ever express".  

 

 

Way back on 4BC in Brisbane I came to an opinion that's become more firmly fixed in my mind ever since.

The most important thing I want from a leader is that he or she tells me the truth.  If he or she can't tell me the whole truth, say so, we'll understand and respect you for it.  But please, speak nothing but the truth.

Clinton's character and the character of those people and institutions prepared to cover for her were on show right to the bitter end.

They're on show in the media today.

Thank God for democracy.

And thank God for a man who had the confidence in his opinions and the courage to speak his mind when precious few others would.   Trump led the way but only because he spoke the truth to people who'd been told their truth didn't count any more.

Many people say Australia needs a Donald Trump.  No we don't.  We need to drop the artifice of speaking only correct speech, of not offending and of adopting tribal beliefs without doing our own homework.  We need to tell the truth as we see it.  And we should demand it of our leaders with no mercy to offenders.

We need to rediscover Australia's true character and live up to it.

And as I hope Trump will do with America, we can then make Australia great again.

Here are a few front pages from Australian newspapers:

And the last word goes to The Australian.  I think the standout commentator today is Greg Sheridan.  A man who spoke with the courage of his convictions yesterday and is straight on to the task at hand today - first admitting he was wrong and then setting out to learn how he became so disconnected from the way other people saw the world around him.  Congratulations Greg.

I'm going to leave it at that for a while.  I was up pretty much all night with some tasks to do with the Clinton prosecutions along with their Australian friends and I am asleep on my feet.  

I'll tell you as much as I can as the matters progress - and I am acutely aware that I told you last week there's a major announcement brewing in relation to union and Labor Party corruption that you'll read about first on this website the instant I'm able to report it to you.
