Louise Milligan’s 6th grade spiteful Girls’ club is on the rampage – again

I hardly took notice when a young women accused a man connected to the Liberal (read conservative) Party of rape. I took in the bare details that the alleged rape took place after a night of drinking and the couple had gone to someone’s unlit office in Parliament house – to have a cup of tea and a scone, no doubt. I didn’t take much notice because I knew what would follow.

‘We see you, we hear you, we believe you.’

Milligan and her spiteful pals were immediately on the case beating up the usual scenario of a toxic environment in which women are always the helpless victims. Of course, the toxic environment is always one inhabited by knuckle-dragging conservative types – the male-males that Milligan hates.

As expected, more cases emerged, the last being (horror!) of someone stroking a woman’s thigh. What trauma that totally helpless young woman must have suffered.

As expected, the actions of this one man were extended to the whole herd of conservative males in Canberra. They were all guilty of raping the woman.

The cry went up from Milligan and her spiteful pals. Action must be taken! There was no end to the prescriptions to deal with the uncontrollable males roaming Canberra on the lookout for helpless young women.

When the girls’ club rose in fury about the alleged rape by a cabinet minister of a women 33 years ago, my wife asked who they were talking about. I said, ‘I haven’t a clue, but if I have to guess, it’s probably Christian Porter. ‘Why,’ said my wife? I replied, ‘Because Milligan and her 6th Grade Spiteful Girls’ Club are after him and they won’t let him go. He’s done for.’

Christian Porter is a much lesser scalp than Cardinal Pell, but a prize one, nevertheless. Now, who’s next?

The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson

The world’s attention has been on American politics and American government for the last few months. The reference to the American Constitution and its founders has been constant. Indeed, understanding the impeachment process and the choice of a supreme court judge requires some knowledge of the constitution and its contributors. Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon has written a book about Thomas Jefferson, one of the most influential of the founding fathers. His book, The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson, is favourably reviewed below.

Summary of The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson by Garrett Ward Sheldon

To show what elements of what theories comprised Jefferson’s political philosophy, Sheldon traces the development of his political thoughts alongside the development of America, showing how Jefferson’s thoughts changed as America evolved throughout The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson.

First, before delving into the relationship between Jefferson’s thoughts and America’s evolving national character, Sheldon describes the combination of Lockean liberalism and classical republicanism that primarily contributed to Jefferson’s political philosophy, hinting at how Jefferson was able to blend “many philosophical concepts into a comprehensive and coherent political philosophy, the essence of which [might] be closer to classical republicanism than to Lockean liberalism.”

Then, after delving into the attributes of and differences between the two, Sheldon begins his history-based approach, starting, as should be expected, with America as a colony. In this chapter, Sheldon discusses how “the position that the American colonists found themselves in…accounted for much of their feelings of both affection for, and resentment of, the royal British Empire.”

The political philosophy of James Madison

Summary of The Political Philosophy of James Madison by Garrett Ward Sheldon

Admin, Gen Z Conservative, 11 February 2021

The Political Philosophy of James Madison is, as you might expect, about Madison’s political beliefs and how he came to them. Given that he was a Founding Father, the author of the Constitution, an author of The Federalist Papers, and one of the pre-eminent Virginians from the early American time period, understanding how he thought and what he envisioned for America is singularly important.

To help the reader understand Madison’s political thoughts, Sheldon begins with a brief introduction to it and the ideas that will be discussed. According to him, Madison’s political views changed over time, shifting between aspects of American nationalism, Lockean liberalism, and Classical Republicanism, yet were held together and coherent because of their grounding in Protestant Christianity, specifically Calvinist culture and theology.

Additionally, although being associated with Jefferson, who had, at times, radical views on liberty, and being a key opponent of the Federalist Party, Madison was no anarchist; while his views on what measure of national control was acceptable, he never shifted away from the basic premise that the national government should remain, to some degree, supreme.

After that brief introduction to Madison and his political ideas, Sheldon shifts to the first real chapter of The Political Philosophy of James Madison, which is on the intellectual underpinnings of James Madison’s political thoughts. To Sheldon, the root of many of those thoughts was Calvinist theology and his belief that it and reason complemented each other. For example, Madison’s writings, even later in life, reflected his Calvinist upbringing; they lacked the rhetorical flair of Jefferson and were instead well-grounded and ordered.

The way ahead for Trump

Professor Sheldon covers President Trump’s considerable achievements before sketching what he hopes the former president will do. His description of the unrelenting attack by the American left through a corrupt media should remind Australians of the bastardry to which the contemptible media in this country subjected former prime minister Tony Abbott. Conservatives have to come to a clear understanding of the extent to which the political process has become a tool of a traitor class, a class that works to subvert everything about traditional western society.

What Should Trump Do Now?

Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon, Gen Z Conservative

Neither I nor anyone else should presume to tell Donald Trump what to do. He is quite capable of deciding for himself, which I’m sure he will do. I am writing only what I HOPE he will do, for himself, our country, and the world.

President Donald Trump will go down in history as the greatest victim of political abuse and harassment, in spite of (or perhaps because of!) his popularity, extraordinary accomplishments, and personal character.

Since BEFORE his bid for the Presidency, he has been maligned, slandered, falsely accused, attacked in every way, ridiculed, misrepresented, and finally cheated out of the greatest landslide victory of any American Presidential election. Throughout all this, he has shown remarkable restraint, discretion, respect, and professionalism. He is a Real Hero.

Two Videos: Analysing and Exposing the US Election

Victor Davis Hanson speaks at length with former deputy prime minister John Anderson about the US election, fraud, misleading polls.

As the video is hosted by YouTube, those interested should watch now just in case the Google-owned platform adds the clip to the ever-growing list of things Big Tech doesn’t want you to see.

From Mr Hanson’s helicopter view of the election, the culture war and the factors that determined its alleged outcome, now descend to the granular as a Detroit election supervisor describes how to get the result the Democrats needed.

Ignoring TRump’s appeal and achievements

US election: Donald Trump’s achievements too readily overlooked

Jennifer Oriel

The Australian, 9 November 2020

For more than 70 million Americans, Donald Trump represents hope. He won the 2016 election against a sure-bet Democrat with a political pedigree and the global media on her side. He won the second-biggest popular vote in US electoral history last week despite a four-year onslaught by the political media elite. On present numbers, he has increased the Republican share of Hispanic voters and improved his standing among African-Americans. Trump has forever changed American politics and the breadth of his achievements impresses where his style, and his handling of the pandemic fail.

The 45th US president restored law and order by defending police against militant racists and nominating black-letter lawyers to the Supreme Court. He chipped away at left-wing orthodoxy in the public service and on campus by testing the limits of free speech. He demanded equal treatment for America in foreign policy by telling free-riding allies to boost their military spending and pay their fair share for defence. He called the bluff of bully states and withdrew US money from the Paris Agreement, which rewards totalitarian regimes with Western workers’ money. He protected Americans from illiberal enemies by closing the border to terrorist-producing states. He defended Israel by negotiating the most celebrated Middle East peace deal in recent history. He encouraged the revival of American manufacturing in towns gripped by unemployment and sliding into the despair of intergenerational opioid addiction. And he worked to restore the democratic norms established by the founding fathers. Trump stood for the millions of Americans that globalists treat like an unpleasant aftertaste of the industrial era. For all of that, the politically correct will forever regard him as an enemy.

What explains Donald Trump’s appeal to so many Americans?

Emeritus Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon has provided us with a shrewd judicious analysis of Donald Trump’s great appeal to many people, not only in America, but around the world. This is an excellent, quality analysis that rings trues. Indeed, it makes those seeing his appeal as an issue of education and social standing look vacuously snobbish.

Trumpism is the Right Mix of Old and New

The combination of old American tradition and new American innovation make the Trump movement truly unique and momentous.

By Garrett Ward Sheldon, American Greatness, October 7, 2020

The political movement around Donald Trump is the greatest in American history since the American Revolution of 1776. Other major movements: Thomas Jefferson’s “Second American Revolution” of 1800; the Abolition of Slavery and rise of industrialism around the Civil War; the development of the Welfare State under FDR’s New Deal, are all major, but are not as momentous as this movement around Trump.

          This is because the current movement is a unique mixture of Old and New never before seen in history.

          As I described in a previous article in American Greatness (“How I Knew Trump Would Win in 2016 and Why He Will Win Again”), Donald Trump embodies traditional American notions of freedom, equality, faith, family, and patriotism so brilliantly described in Alexis de Tocqueville’s DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA, going back 400 years to the New England Puritans and the Virginia settlers. Such cultural values, as the conservative philosopher Edmund Burke showed, do not change over hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. Although under assault for perhaps 100 years (especially during the past 50 years) they remain permanent American political culture, ready to be revived through the Trumpian movement.

          But what makes this restoration of traditional American political culture unique, is its combination with the New: the most advanced, cutting-edge, “progressive” developments in economics, technology and international relations.

          For, the old Liberal Democratic system of centralized government protecting old, outmoded economic monopolies, and global control based on corrupt alliances and outmoded technology, is actually LESS compatible with traditional American values of freedom, invention, creativity, competition and discovery. The newest technology is naturally decentralized.

          We see the contrast all around us in communication and business. In the place of four “news” cable networks with one Liberal message, we have hundreds of internet news and commentary blogs on every perspective. Big Med, Big Pharma, and Big Agra – preserved by government restrictions and regulations, replaced by a free market of alternative medicine and treatments, high tech diagnoses and treatment and a real progress in healthcare and nutrition. Ironically, the COVID-19 that was designed to destroy the American economy and Trump actually advanced this movement as online medical treatment, education, military (the Space Force) and commerce have all advanced.

In the place of monolithic State Education we will soon have School Choice with innovative mixtures of public and private, online and onsite, and practical learning based on free speech, examining all perspectives rather than Liberal identity-politics indoctrination. And many Americans are moving out of the cities, with their Democrat-sponsored riots, and to the country and small towns (another American tradition) where they can work remotely online and enjoy safe, quiet and pleasant communities, leaving the Democrat cities to rot like ancient Roman ruins.

The effect on international relations is likely that the Old World Order of USA/EU/China will be replaced with: USA/Great Britain/India/ Eastern Europe/peaceful Arab Countries/ Israel. Instead of Global control by a few will be multiple individual and regional alliances compatible with both traditional American values and advanced technology.

          It is this combination of the Old and the New that makes the Trump Movement unique and momentous.
