KRudd Watch

KRudd gets the UN job he used us for

Andrew Bolt

For years I’ve warned that Kevin Rudd was using the prime ministership as a stepping stone to a top job with the United Nations, diverting cash for his personal crusade. Now he’s got there – but, having been sacked as PM, it’s not quite as grand as he intended:

FORMER prime minister Kevin Rudd will join a United Nations panel on global sustainability, the UN confirmed today

Tim Blair has more.

Meanwhile, back on planet earth:

Fifty-seven more votes arrive for Labor:

A boat believed to be carrying asylum seekers has been “intercepted” by the Royal Australian Navy north-east of Christmas Island.

The vessel is believed to be carrying 57 asylum seekers and two crew.

High compliance costs and interference by Labor kill tourism in Australia

Australia has out priced itself as a holiday destination.

QUEENSLAND tourism operators are facing the fight of their lives to lure holidaymakers, who are increasingly shunning domestic beach holidays in favour of cheap deals to places such as Bali, Fiji and Thailand. (News com)

The All New GillKRudd Transformation: Spin, Baby, Spin….

Australia’s all new Labor government has more to offer you than just internet censorship. Now they intend to come after your kitchen appliances:

Looks like  KRudd was the brains of this outfit  after all…..

Madame GillKRudd promises to protect Australian’s from Counter Revolutionary thoughts and information.

Australian Council of Trade Unions appointed, Australian Prime Minister,former member of the “Gang of Four” Madame Gillard seen here in Party Garb, on a visit to the Australian Labor Party’s ideological homeland, Communist China.

Thanks to Aussie News & Views:

Internet Filter to protect Australians from Counter Revolutionary thoughts!

Beijing’s former highest ranking official in Australia and Prime Minister of Australia,Lu Kewen aka. Kevin 07 Rudd,” # 1 Citizen” of the previous Union Financed Labor Government, Madam Gillard’s  predecessor, often quoted Labor’s ideological sole mate Mao Tse Tung, the progressive lefts most infamous mass murderer and despot’s invocation to the people of China soon after slaughtering his opponents and seizing power “Let a hundred flowers bloom” (Lu Kewen insisted on saying let a thousand flowers bloom)
The internet has indeed let a “Hundred Flowers bloom”, different thought’s and ideas are now out there in the Blogosphere, and just like Mao Tse Tung, those seeking fighting, to hold the DEATH SWORD of International Socialism, have been monitoring those Flowers Blooming and what those “flowers ” had to say on the internet these last 15 years or so.

Update: THE Gillard government has succumbed to pressure and delayed the introduction of its mandatory internet filtering scheme.

Names addresses and telephone numbers of the authors their wives, husbands and children, and every word ever written on any and ALL Blogs.
Letters to the editor and email, the flowers have indeed BLOOMED, the internet has invited “open and frank” discussion, unlike the days when Mao Tse Tung’s operatives had to listen into every conversation in a Cafe ,public park bus, train or University Lecture or private conversation between husband and wife or parent and child, those deemed to be ” Counter Revolutionary” are easily identified by their writings on the internet and just like  Mao Tse Tung’s gangs of roving “Revolutionaries” and “right thinkers” aka. butchers thugs and mass murderers did to China’s hundred blooming flowers, so to will his ideological descendants Madame Gillard and the Australian Labor Party and their Bankers and Financiers the Australian Council of Trade Unions.

So what did Mao Tse Tung do after he surveyed his Hundred Blooming Flowers? he simply slaughtered every Flower that did not bloom according to HIS aka. “The Party” proscribed ideology, in fact he made his Communist Party “Flowers” the only “Flowers” allowed to Bloom  in China.

Madame Gillard is about to shut down the internet in Australia, Australians will have the same access to the internet as do citizens / comrades of Iran, North Korea, Cuba, China and Venezuela

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard will nail down the final plank of her election platform by taking a new climate change policy to Cabinet within days.

UPDATE. “What a joke!” comments DB. “ABARE’s Energy in Australia 2010 report shows that residential energy consumption is just seven per cent of Australia’s total energy consumption. This looks like another ‘problem’ that does not need a solution.”

KRudd launches fashion attack on journalist

Foul mouthed KRudd wants to fine YOU for swearing:

Oh sh*t: Swearers face instant $100 fines: Queensland police will be able to issue $100 fines for swearing in public under controversial new legislation

Hypocrisy of the left: Why no tears now for dead asylum seekers?

WHERE are they now, those hypocrites who once noisily wept over John Howard’s “cruelty” to boat people?

Why aren’t they shedding tears over the 170 boat people since believed killed under these more “compassionate” policies they voted for?  Andrew Bolt: no tears  for dead welfare seekers?’

Another KRuddish “success” on boat people

It’s worked so well that Labor sets a record:

THE federal government’s freeze on the processing of Sri Lankan and Afghan asylum seekers has slowed the influx of boat people, evidence suggests, with arrivals down by almost a quartersince the decision was made.

Meanwhile…

AN Australian navy patrol boat has intercepted a boat carrying suspected asylum seekers off Australia’s northwest… Mr O’Connor said initial indications suggested there were 33 passengers and three crew on board.

Criticising KRudd “distasteful”

Former Labor speechwriter Dennis Glover suddenly gets sensitive about criticism of a Prime Minister:

Rudd-bashing is the fashion. It’s becoming rather easy. And also, perhaps, a little cruel and distasteful.

Distasteful?

Yet Howard-bashing, on the other hand, was not only tasteful but just what the doctor ordered….Permalink

KRudd Watch, KRudd Spin

Quote of the week:

KRudd raises the tax on cigarettes and claims that it will give people more incentive to quit. Yet somehow raising tax on mining profits wont have the same effect on the mining industry.

KRudds “Foreign students first” policy causes collective gasp

No wonder the mining industry is terrified by Kevin Rudd’s leadership:

KEVIN Rudd confronted mining chiefs over dinner in Perth last week to defend his resources super profits tax from charges it would lead to projects closing down, would restrict expansion, was a flawed design and would push investment overseas…

Addressing complaints from David Flanagan, head of Atlas Iron, about the effect on investment of having a super profits tax cut in at 6 per cent, Rudd said it was companies such as Atlas that were pushing up the dollar and making it hard for foreign students to live in Australia.

There was a collective gasp, with executives asking Rudd if he “wanted to wipe out the iron ore industry to help foreign students”.   Strangle our miners to help foreign students/Bolt

Canberra spin unravels as asylum boat hits shore/the Age

“Successful Interception”

The Age has the photographic evidence here of the latest boat being intercepted by nothing other than the Christmas Island jetty:

ACCORDING to the Rudd government, this is the moment the latest asylum seeker boat was ‘’successfully intercepted’’.

ACCORDING to the Rudd government, this is the moment the latest asylum seeker boat was ‘’successfully intercepted’’.

But, as you can see, authorities were nowhere to be seen when the boat containing 55 people chugged into Christmas Island’s Flying Fish Cove yesterday. ‘’They actually crashed the bow of the boat as it smashed into the jetty,’’ said one islander.

The government tells it differently. ‘’Border Protection Command today successfully intercepted a suspected irregular entry vessel,’’ Home Affairs Minister Brendan O’Connor said in a press release. ‘’HMAS Glenelg, operating under the control of Border Protection Command, intercepted the vessel … near Christmas Island.’’ From Andrew Bolt/Rudd’s navy intercepts nothing but the truth

UPDATE from Tim Blair: The First Lady appoints a new minister:

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has appointed Tony Burke as the nation’s first population minister, amid growing concerns the number of Australians will rise to unsustainable levels.

Mr Burke will be responsible for drawing up a national population strategy and will retain his other portfolio of agriculture, fisheries and forestry.

So now Burke is the Minister for Cows, Fish, Trees and People. Who’ll get Insects? Maybe that responsibility will fall to the underemployed bureaucrats previously involved in emissions trading.

Actually not. Just more spin and flip flop. He was for it before he was against it and visa versa….. No, the plan is not to stop the thousands of illegal welfare seekers who burn their boats on arrival in Australia, the plan is to appoint another bureaucrat to establish another bureaucracy.

Yes, the boats keep coming: Yet another, like never before and there are yet more asylum seekers on their way to the island, with a boat carrying 79 passengers and four crew “intercepted” on Friday.

KRudd flips on ‘big Australia’

Josh Gordon/The Age

THE federal government will consider slashing Australia’s annual migration intake to help tackle concerns about traffic congestion, housing, hospitals, water and the environment.

Just months after declaring himself in favour of a ”big Australia”, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd yesterday warned of ”legitimate concerns” with population growth and appointed Agriculture Minister Tony Burke as Australia’s first Population Minister.

Mr Burke has been given a year to develop the country’s first population plan, including a review of immigration levels.

The announcement came as another boatload of asylum seekers – the 102nd to be intercepted since Mr Rudd took office – was placed in detention at the Christmas Island facility, which has reportedly reached capacity.

Mr Rudd denied the new strategy was a smokescreen to divert attention from the recent boat arrivals, saying the idea for a population plan had come after ”extensive deliberations of the cabinet over the last month”. More

My KRuddness!

More than 60 delegations, from Colombia to Australia,  gathered in Lancaster House this morning to draw up an exit strategy from Afghanistan. Much of it is based on reintegrating the Taleban rank and file, wooing the Taleban leadership and gradually handing security to the Afghan Army and police. (How do you reintegrate something that was never integrated in the first place?/ed)

The conference is expected to agree a $500 million (£310 million), five-year fund for President Karzai to “buy off” insurgents who are not ideologically committed to destroying the West.

Answer:

AUSTRALIA is among the first countries to donate towards a new fund designed to encourage the Taliban to lay down their guns in Afghanistan, pledging $25 million.

And the boats keep coming:


Boatpeople Love KRudd!

Two a week now

Last year we had 60 boats arrive after Kevin Rudd softened our laws on boat people. This year is already likely to break that record:

AUTHORITIES have intercepted another boatload of suspected asylum-seekers in Australian waters—the eighth this year. Home Affairs Minister Brendan O’Connor said the boat, carrying 48 passengers and three crew, was intercepted by HMAS Launceston just before midnight on Tuesday, 12 nautical miles northeast of Ashmore Reef.

Working beautifully. But shouldn’t the Government just cut the pretence and employ not a warship but a tug?

What you don’t hear from the MSM:

At least 10 Australians have been murdered. Australians! do not go to India, you will die of “zinc phosphate poisoning”.

Meanwhile, they just keep coming…..

Out through the night An' the whispering breezes…

* Yep, you guessed it, folks: its “Stinkfoot” again!

Rudd’s signal heard, all right

Andrew Bolt

(from our ‘they just keep coming’ department)

Kevin Rudd’s media defenders claimed in April that the increase in boat people could not be blamed on Kevin Rudd’s softening of our laws against illegal immigrants. Their argument: How could ignorant Afghanis, Iraqis and Sri Lankans have even known of Rudd’s changes?:7-5-09-illegals-arrive-blow-up-pic-crop-small3

The ABC then claimed one asylum seeker told it Rudd’s “softening of asylum seeker policy . . . had no influence on his decision”. But a fuller transcript showed he’d denied nothing.

Again Rudd’s apologists tried. The ABC’s Jon Faine, The Monthly’s Sally Warhaft, and The Sydney Morning Herald’s David Marr agreed mere Afghans could never have known of Rudd’s changes

That argument was almost immediately challenged – by boat people themselves:

One (Iraqi) said he plans to attempt the boat journey even though his refugee status is already confirmed, because he has heard he is more likely to be accepted by Kevin Rudd’s Government than its predecessor….  ”Kevin Rudd – he’s changed everything about refugee. If I go to Australia now, different, different,” a second asylum seeker told the ABC.

And today the Herald Sun carried this interview with Iraqi asylum-seeker Yaser Mandalavi, in an Indonesian detention centre:

“Mr Howard made it very hard for refugees. He wouldn’t let me bring my family to Australia when I lived there. But I have been told (Rudd has) made it easier for people like me to come to Australia and to bring our families with us…”

After the Rudd Government scrapped TPVs, a people smuggler “mafia man” persuaded him to set sail.

He told me the laws had been changed in Australia, and that Mr Rudd wanted refugees,” Mr Mandalavi said.

The boat was torched, and Australians hurt

  • Why Mr Rudd why are you so fixated on flooding Australia with such people?

Andrew Bolt – 

More leaks on the story the Rudd Government refuses to discuss:

THERE was a deliberate attempt to set Suspected Illegal Entry Vessel 36 alight off Ashmore Reef on April 16, but speculation has been raised as to whether it was an Indonesian crew member, rather than Afghan asylum seekers, who wanted to scuttle the boat.

The claims come as The Weekend Australian has learned that at least two of the nine Australian Defence Force personnel who were on the vessel when it blew up have had breakdowns and will not return to service.
