Random Notes - Idle Thoughts

Ted Kennedy Colluded With Russia to Subvert a Presidential Election

In a secret letter written to Soviet General Sec. Yuri Andropov, Kennedy said he was eager to “counter the militaristic policies” of Reagan and “undermine his prospects for re-election in 1984.” His plan had everything. Fake news, a pliant opposition media, and a cutout to keep him from direct contact with the KGB.

Random Note — John Brennan former head of the CIA

The question Brennan needs to answer is that in his capacity as head of the CIA between 2013 and 2016, where was he and his spooks when all this Russian meddling was going on under his watch? Or was he a Russian plant too? After all, he does actually admit to being a communist sympathiser during the Cold War and voting for the communist presidential candidate, Gus Hall in 1976.

Random Note — Re-education Returns to China. Many will be shocked by this, but perhaps on reflection, we shouldn’t be.

With the very essence and purpose of re-education being to enforce pc, state approved thought and speech to make the citizenry buckle under and to ensure strict adherence and compliance with, the approved guidelines and state approved orthodoxy, Australia already has its own version of, metaphorical, re-education camps with the application of the psychological ‘barbed wire’, bullying and groupthink of the various commissions, committees and tribunals like the federal, Human Rights and Race discrimination Commission and 18c

Random Note — Trump, NATO and the dinosaurs

Watching Donald Trump at the NATO summit, call out and harangue the usual array of freeloading, numbskulls from the member nations, it occurred to me that Trump is to the established order (aka) the swamp, in the US, Europe, UK, and Canberra what the meteor of 66 million years ago was to planet earth when it took out the dinosaurs. And just like the dinosaurs, the modern day swamp dwellers have no idea what hit them. A similar shakeout of the practices of the slow moving dolts and dinosaurs of our times will be no bad thing.

Random Note — Populism

Have you noticed when society is moving in the preferred direction of the elites they refer to it as democracy and when society is moving in the opposite or away from the preferred direction of the elites it’s sneeringly regarded as populism?

Random Note — Paris and the vaulting ambition of Turnbull and Bishop

The blinding determination of Turnbull and Bishop to see Australia’s Paris commitment through, regardless of the futility and the damage done to our economy reminds me of the folly of Gallipoli or the ‘going over the top‘ on the Western Front in WW1, when in the face of insurmountable odds the Generals were prepared to sacrifice the youth of Australia and the empire for the sake of their own vaulting ambition, pride and ego.

Random Note — Paris

Tony Abbott’s advocacy for Australia to walk back on the Paris agreement is simply demonstrating the truth of the John Maynard Keynes observation that:
’When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?’

Random Note — Socialism V Capitalism

It’s a bit like believing Nazism is a good idea but being totally being unaware of Hitler. Or Christianity and being unaware of Jesus. It was philosopher George Santayana who made the observation that ‘Those that don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it’ And it’s quite apparent that these two, 20 and 28 year olds haven’t so much learnt from history as never been taught or learnt about history or their favourite political product of choice, socialism, in the first place.

Random Note — Coal on the cusp

Surely the message must eventually penetrate the Canberra bubble that if we won’t use OUR coal to drive OUR economy others will use OUR coal to drive their economies, overtake us and fill the manufacturing and industrial vacuum created by Australia.
