Trump - Not Business as Usual in Asia

Here is a piece I wrote at the end of March and which was published in the May edition of Quadrant magazine. A little prescient if I say so myself: http://quadrant.org.au/magazine/2018/05/trump-dumped-business-usual-asia/

Corey White makes best ABC programme in years!


Here is the link to a trailer for Corey White's shows: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OfPatrC1dU

I have just watched the programme on Domestic Violence - the most useful 15 minutes of television watching I have done in a long time. You can catch the whole series on iView.

If only lefties could flush their 2008 make-believe-maverick meme down the memory hole

That was then and this is now

The PC brigade were not so as sanguine about John McCain when he ran against their candidate in 2008: https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/make-believe-maverick-20081016

Of course, the sentiment towards McCain in the MSM changed when McCain became a #NeverTrump kind of guy, and now the progressive MSM wants to persuade us that they always respected the 2008 Republican presidential nominee. Maybe it is not the Trumpists who have a consistency problem with the man progressives once called a "make believe maverick": https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/5/11/17345060/trump-mccain-2016-2018-right-wing
