Venezuela, the model
“I don’t agree with communism. We are democracy. We are against all kinds of dictators… That is why we oppose communism.”
You’d think they’d be happy that the Israelis took out a Hamas jihadist. But no, it’s all about the passports. “Australia moves to expel Israeli diplomat,” by Rod Mcguirk forAssociated Press, May 23 (thanks to Jihad Watch):
On our MTR show today, I talk with Steve Price about the ludicrous and self-serving decision by Kevin Rudd to expell an Israeli diplomat. We talk about this with Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop, too, who refuses then to confirm or deny that the Liberals, if elected, would also extract more taxes from the mining industry.
No, not everyone in Labor would agree with Kevin Rudd’s wild decision yesterday to make an example of Israel, once thought of as our friend, by expelling one of its diplomats.
AWU boss Paul Howes actually wrote this two months ago. I doubt he (privately) thinks any differently today – and his piece even then warned of the anti-Israeli agitation that Rudd has now unleashed: Â against the anti-Israel Labor of KRudd
Birds of a feather, flock together:
KRudd tries to buy himself a cushy position among other empty suits at the UN Â Â (with your money, of course!)
Our aid for Rudd’s vanity
When he’s not expelling Israeli diplomats to appease Muslim countries, he’s offering aid bribes to African ones who may likewise back Kevin Rudd’s desperate campaign for a temporary seat on the UN Security Council:
AUSTRALIA will pump more than $400 million in foreign aid into Africa by 2015, as Prime Minister Kevin Rudd chases a seat on the United Nations Security Council.
Aid funding for Africa will more than double – from $163 million this year – despite Australia having few historical ties with the continent.The rise in spending will see hundreds of millions spent on helping Africa develop better farming practices while thousands of “development awards” will be offered.
But the money will also help promote Australian Rules football…
Nor is that the only cost of Rudd’s vanity:
TAXPAYERS paid a massiveÂ $700,000 for Governor-General Quentin Bryce’s trek to Africa to help win Australia a seat on the UN Security Council.
The boats keep coming:
When will lefties admit that KRudd is far worse than Howard?
Free Speech no longer free under KRudd:
Remember the fulmination of Leftists such as David Marr against the wicked attempts of the satanic Howard Government to stifle free speech – attempts since matched, and more, by Kevin Rudd?
Since 1996, Howard has cowed his critics, muffled the press, intimidated the ABC, gagged scientists, silenced non-government organisations, neutered Canberra’s mandarins, curtailed parliamentary scrutiny, censored the arts, banned books, criminalised protest and prosecuted whistleblowers.
Of course, since then we’ve had theÂ CSIRO censor a critic of Kevin Rudd’s emissions trading scheme, school principalsÂ banned from criticising Rudd’s school spending, journalistsÂ stopped from asking embarrassing questions, anÂ art exhbition damned and closed down, millions spentÂ on government propaganda, criticsÂ dumped from the ABC board,Â four new $100,000 prizes created for writers personally endorsed by Rudd, and a diplomatÂ publicly smeared, vilified andÂ demoted after givng Rudd unwelcome advice.
Next? Now noteÂ the evidence to a Senate committee this week of Parliamentary Librarian Roxanne Missingham, who reveals new restrictions imposed by the Rudd Government on information requested by the Opposition:

KRudd spin: those who feed us are “under taxed”
WAYNE Swan’s planned 40 per cent mining tax is under mounting pressure, withÂ former banker and mining executive John Ralph rejecting it as risky and doubt cast over the Treasurer’s claim that resources companies are under-taxed.
This tax will kill Rudd (hopefully)
Brilliant. AfterÂ offending Japan over whaling and ourÂ China cuddling,Â India over uranium sales anddiplomatic slights,Â Indonesia overÂ boat people, Singapore over Kevin Rudd’s ”Asia forum”, and China over general dithering, the Rudd Government now drives a greater wedge with our most reliable friend in the Middle East by expelling an Israeli diplomat:
