    I’ve put up this post with more comments.
    Read it. Still opaque. The point isn’t to have the best candidate, the point is to have the best candidate WHO CAN WIN.
    Are you implying Trump isn’t a patriot? A man who could live his life out in comfort but took on the Swamp and upended his life because he’s a father and grandfather and didn’t like the way his country was going? That Trump?
    Give us a break.

    Traditional medicine fails again

    Indigenous leader and AFL executive Tanya Hosch revealed she had part of her lower leg amputated two weeks ago and was released from hospital on Tuesday, just a day before she gave an impassioned speech at the launch of the Voice campaign in Adelaide.
    “I have type 2 diabetes and I contracted a related disease that I have battled for three years and across six surgeries trying to avoid the loss of my limb.”

    Only part of the way through it but you’ve got to see Tucker Carlson on His Interview with Trump, FOX Firing & America’s Future,  an Adam Carolla interview.

    To pique your interest “There is a certain college educated, upper income America woman who is despised by everyone in the country…Karens.. probably 15% of the population with wildly disproportionate power..cultural power….hectoring stupidity..”. It is at least 30% of my street and they all have their YES posters out.

    The Accept Association condemns the “shameful gesture of the Government” to challenge the decision of the ECHR regarding the legal recognition of LGBT families in Romania.

    Regarding LGBT families, I’m reminded of Paul Keating’s comment on the matter….

    “Two blokes and a Cocker Spaniel don’t make a family”.

    It’s purely coincidental I’m sure that whenever Russian missiles blow up a command and control centre somewhere in Ukraine, that top NATO officers die from car crashes somewhere in America.

    Pope Francis is on the Ukraine “Myrotvorets” hit-list.

    Drone hits Russia, Pskov airbase. 30km from Estonia. Tucker & Orban. Gabon coup? Macron panics. U/1 – Alex Christoforou, from the 37 minute mark.

    Viktor Orbán says “Trump is the man who can save the western world, and probably the human beings in the world as well.”

    Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán from the 3 min. mark gives an education on Russia.

    Rather than ‘cancelling’ Russia, western people and societies should learn about Russia.

    Virginia Trioli announces she’s leaving ABC Radio Melbourne (where she has had record low ratings) to… wait for it… present new ABC TV arts show.

    Trioli will finish up on ABC Melbourne Mornings on Friday, September 15 before launching a series featuring high-profile arts interviews on ABC TV next year.

    That’ll be a ratings hit
