Wing Dings

“SO freaky how there’s no recognizable name for the Chinese Secret Service,” Samuel L. Jackson’s villainous Valentine notes in Kingsman. “Now that’s what you call a secret, right?” Right. The thing about ASIO’s “rare” public forays is that they aren’t as rare as they used to be. True, in a democracy – where spy agencies supposedly answer to the people – there are times when their chieftains have to “flick the switch to vaudeville,” as ASIO hater Paul Keating would say, in order to drum up cash and a continued reason for being. But they should never be seen “tripping over television cables” – Keating again – in the studios of the ABC. The national broadcaster is the vast propaganda wing of the Labor/left in this country. For years it promoted misinformation originating in dark corners of the intelligence world to slander Donald Trump. It has been accused of colluding with comparably dodgy individuals to defame and railroad Cardinal George Pell.

I therefore question the wisdom of Director-General Burgess appearing on 7.30 to be ‘interviewed’ by Leigh Sales. Ponder the drama if an ASIO boss had appeared on The Bolt Report to say it wasn’t “helpful” for certain parties to be linking the Trump Administration to the Kremlin. The Chau Chak Wing affair is odd. Why reveal that a foreign corrupter of election candidates was exposed and shut down? What happened to the spymaster’s creed that failures may be lamented but victories remain unknown? Of course the media was going to name the “puppeteer.” Of course it would be political. Properly so; an adversarial democracy’s brutal politicking – not its intelligence community – is the real last line of national security defence. To then chastise politicians for doing their job creates an impression that the Parliament toes ASIO’s line rather than ASIO Parliament’s.

In the parlance of America’s liberal media, many journalists quickly pounced on the Burgess-Sales chat. Exhibiting the dual mastery of amnesia and historical illiteracy that distinguishes the modern leftist, a grateful Katharine Murphy described Scott Morrison and Peter Dutton as “McCarthyists.” Given that the ABC and its audience – to wit, every Laborite/Greenie in Australia – went bananas for four years about the ‘collusion’ of Trump Republicans with Vladimir Putin, you have to laugh at Murpharoo’s switcheroo. Unlike the Senator from Wisconsin, Sarah Ferguson is unlikely to ever be vindicated by a Venona transcript.

Finally, on the essence of this debate rather than its forms: when it comes to loathing communism, I bow to none but survivors – in whose number, pre-covid, I never expected to count myself. Even I, however, am alarmed by the increasingly loony campaign being waged against Anthony Albanese by the Morrison government for not “standing up” to China. Mr Albanese didn’t hand over the Port of Darwin to the CCP. The Liberal Party did. Yes, I see your video of the Labor Leader addressing a gala Australia-China economics and culture forum in 2018 and I raise it with a picture of Treasurer Josh Frydenberg congratulating Darwin’s new overlords three years earlier.

    Uniparty scum. Why bother subclassifying them?

  3. cuckoo says:

    All that you say is true, and for the moment a pox on both their houses, but it affords me some measure of glee to see the ALP, which trots out at every election a completely false Mediscare campaign, getting a taste of their own medicine for once.

  4. Old School Conservative says:

    I don’t think enough attention has been directed towards Andrew Robb and Adam Giles and their roles in leasing the Port of Darwin to the Chinese.

  5. Chris M says:

    Because politics.

    The failing Liberal arm of the uniparty puppet (it has two left arms) is now desperate. Never mind the apartheid and the trillion dollar debt, looks Chicoms seen with Labor!

  6. twostix says:

    Speaking of loony campaigns:

    Dutton:

    As a kindergarten is shelled, Peter Dutton says Vladimir Putin is in the process of ‘executing the final stages of his plan to go into the Ukraine’.

    I can’t believe there are people who want this authoritarian globalist security state puppet to be PM.

  7. Not Trampis says:

    First of all the ABC showed a unanimous senate committee agreed Russia interfered in the 2016 election. So said every national security chief to congress. Finally Mueller confirmed it.
    Cl living on another planet again. however his memory is poor. In 2013 the secretaries of both treasury and finance came out and essentially said Rudd was wrong about one of his allegations.
    Secondly Burgess and now Richardson have belled the cat on national security. richardson was more blunt as he is retired. He said the government was irresponsible and only China gained from what they are attempting to do. As in 2013 they were merely doing their duty.
    I do hope we have a 2013 ending.

    Mediscare made no impact at all according to the polls which barely changed in that campaign. They were relaible then.

  8. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    If a bureaucrat chooses to go onto the ABC, not elsewhere (eg. Joe Rogan), then that means he’s either wanting to telegraph to the green-prog elites or he’s showing his own political inclination.

    Given Gramsci I suspect the latter.

    Accordingly if you see a swastika at a trucker convoy in Canberra you can be almost totally sure it is being carried by an AFP, ASIO or ASIS glowie.

  9. C.L. says:

    Secondly Burgess and now Richardson have belled the cat on national security.

    You mean they came to the rescue of the Labor Party – thus undermining the reputation of ASIO.

    Mueller was medically senile and didn’t personally investigate anything.

    What we now know is that the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House orchestrated and paid for an incoming POTUS to be illegally spied upon; that Russian spooks were paid for a false dossier; that the FISA Court was mislead to expand the spying. Amongst other things – and many more to come.

  10. Lee says:

    True.
    For all the vilification he has copped (and still cops), McCarthy was proven to be more often right than wrong.
    And being a senator he was not part of HUAC, and their investigations into Hollywood and elsewhere.

  11. Boambee John says:

    We realise that Non Mentis is a bit short on the capability for independent thought (failing to complete kindy can cause that), but to see him mindlessly and blindly regurgitating the “progressive” narrative is an education in the level of blind stupidity of which he is capable.

  12. Not Trampis says:

    The only person senile here is you.

    Firstly both Burgess and Richardson understand national security better than you I or Morrison for that matter. It only helped the ALP because of Morrison’s incompetence.
    As Richardson said he is only helping China.

    We do not know anything like that as there is NO evidence for you assertion. As usual you are evidence free. Very Trumpian by the way.

    McCarthy was rarely right on anything. This probably had something to do with his drinking. Just remember he got into the senate as tail gunner Joe

  13. Rex Anger says:

    McCarthy was rarely right on anything.

    Leftist Kool-Aid there, Homer Paxton.

    The reason he is so hated and abused post facto by good little Comrades like yourself, is that Hollywood (and the upper crust of American Society) was and remains full of Communists and Communist-curious. And these folks were the ones who spun the stories of hysteria and indiscriminate recriminations afterwards. Ditto the personal slanders.

    Oh, the joys of being over the target…

  14. Boambee John says:

    The deplorable Non Mentis resorts to deplorable fact free insults. Clearly he is incapable of seeing anything not from a so-called “progressive” source. Narrow minded and pig ignorant.

  15. Lee says:

    Misinformed left wing bullshit.
    As C.L. says, he was vindicated by the Venona records many years later.
    He was a tail gunner/observer in the U.S. Air Force.

  16. cuckoo says:

    Mediscare made no impact at all according to the polls which barely changed in that campaign.

    So lying is okay as long as it doesn’t work? Got it.

  17. Not Trampis says:

    McCarthy never quite made it to Trumpian levels of lying but he lied throughout his whole life including about his ‘war’ record.
    His record was known at the latter end of his career as a politician. It probably exacerbated his drinking problem. He and cohn were born for each other.
    No wonder fruit cakes support him.
    Do you people ever think of why the Justice department never ever started an investigation into any of the allegations mentioned by Trumpist CL. Afterall we have never seen a more compliant justice department since tricky dickey was Prez.

  18. Lee says:

    McCarthy never quite made it to Trumpian levels of lying but he lied throughout his whole life including about his ‘war’ record.

    LOL.
    Coming from a fantasist and a “fruit cake” like you, very precious indeed!

    What is it with leftwits and libellous slurs?

    And the fact they can dish it out, but cannot bear to take it?

    Any thoughts on this phenomenon, Homer Paxton?

    Non Mentis

    Let’s put aside the grammatical and spelling errors (dickey???), and cut to the chase. The US DoJ is completely compliant to the dictates of the DemonRat Party, as is the CIA. This does not concern the mindless so-called “progressive” Non Mentis, because he is too.

  21. Boambee John says:

    Non Mentis

    McCarthy never quite made it to Trumpian levels of lying but he lied throughout his whole life including about his ‘war’ record.

    While your inability to provide links to the assertions you make is legendary, perhaps on this occasion you might at least try to link to McCarthy’s actual war record?

  22. Ed Case says:

    I can’t believe there are people who want this authoritarian globalist security state puppet to be PM.

    Albanese says he agrees with him 100% on Ukraine.
    However, no one wants Albo as P.M.

  23. Ed Case says:

    Who the hell knows what McCarthy’s real War Record was?
    LBJ got the Silver Star for being on a flight from Townsville to Port Moresby in 1942.
    JFK got the Medal Of Honor for getting his boat run over by an Aircraft Carrier near Guadalcanal.
    As one of the surviving crew said many years later:

    The truth of what really happened that night will never see the light of day.

  24. Tel says:

    First of all the ABC showed a unanimous senate committee agreed Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

    You are making that up … there was no ABC report about any “unanimous senate committee”. The ABC reported that the source was the CIA who then gave a presentation to some unnamed Senators. Even that much was only a rehash from the Washington Post … and those guys were citing “US officials briefed on the matter” … i.e. just about anyone.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-12-10/russia-interfered-in-us-election-to-get-trump-elected-report/8109106

    The Post said the official had been briefed on an intelligence presentation made by the Central Intelligence Agency to key US senators behind closed-doors last week.

    Look … I don’t advise anyone to use ABC as a source, but if you must do then at least pay attention to what they say, rather than further muddying the waters by inventing your own crap. It’s the Internet now, when you fabricate, you will be called on it and the original material is easy to find.

  25. C.L. says:

    JFK got the Medal Of Honor for getting his boat run over by an Aircraft Carrier near Guadalcanal.

    No, his father tried to arrange a CMH but that was too big an ask even for old Joe.
    Kennedy was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for his conduct after the sinking of PT-109.

    His boat was struck by a destroyer, not an aircraft carrier.

    McCarthy exaggerated the number of raids he was a part of and their nature – and told a few other tall war stories. This was pretty standard for veterans in US politics. However, despite being exempt from military service as a circuit court judge, he volunteered for the Marine Corps following Pearl Harbour – the most dangerous choice. He also volunteered for 12 combat missions despite being an intelligence officer who wasn’t expected to do so.

    He was no coward.

    CL

    Oh, noes, Non Mentis making things up! It must be a day ending in “y”!
