Some simple questions for Scott Morrison that nobody has thought to ask

What else but Scott Morrison’s belief in the words of Donald Trump would have been the inspiration behind his decision to expose Australian troops to a possible armed conflict in the Strait of Hormuz?

Is it the ‘Coalition of the Willing’ all over again? Same players: the US, the UK and Australia and an oil-rich nation. Same catalyst: believe whatever a POTUS says.

But more to the point, why does Morrison feel we need to join the US in Iran on Trump’s “say so”?

Is Morrison one of the few remaining individuals on the face of the Earth who believes anything Trump says? It appears as though he is.

Perhaps Scott Morrison could tell us what else he believes from the mouth or mind of Donald Trump.

This should be easy.

Tell us, Scott:

Do you think that Donald Trump should be able to buy Greenland?

Do you agree that nuking hurricanes is a sound idea?

Do you agree with Donald Trump that windmills cause noise cancer?

Do you agree with the Trump Administration locking up children? (No, wait, forget it. We can guess your answer to that one).

Do you agree with Trump’s trade war with China?

Do you agree with Donald Trump that the moon and Mars are the same?

Do you agree with Trump that Nazis are fine people?

Do you agree with Trump that Hilary Clinton should be locked up over “her emails”?

Do you agree that the media is the enemy of the people?

Do you agree with Trump that he was exonerated by Robert Mueller?

Do you think it ridiculous that Trump believes he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize? (For what?)

Do you believe any of this rubbish?:



Do you agree with Trump’s plan to build a wall along the border with Mexico?

Do you agree with Trump’s claim that global warming is a hoax created by China?

Do you believe him when he says he’s a stable genius?

Do you believe that he receives beautiful letters from Kim Jong-un?

Do you really believe he’ll “make America great again”?

Do you believe his claim that he knows more about ISIS than his generals?

Do you believe Trump when he said that he knows the best words?

Do you agree with Trump that Obama spent too much time playing golf when he was POTUS?

Do you believe his claim that he has “statistically been proven right” that the concept of shaking hands is “absolutely terrible”?

Did you believe him when he said; “I look very much forward to showing my financials, because they are huge”?

This one’s a doozie – and please don’t take it personal – but do you agree with his statement that; “The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald”?

Do you believe him when he said he is “the chosen one” (by God)?

Now for a more serious question …

If you don’t believe any of them, then why do you believe him on Iran?

Maybe appeasing “the chosen one” takes priority over the safety of Australians.

As The Donald would say; Sad.

    Scott is just winging it, he’s no idea what to do, so… he will just do what others have done before him.
    Not sure how things will work out, but do know that Scott Morrison is not PM material. If it’s war they want he would happily send our young men & women to war.

    The whole situation is farcical, I despair for the future of Australia and the people who live here.

    Australia has 23 days of motor fuel in storage and our treasurer-in-training Josh has promised to increase it by 2026.

    Most of the fuel we use is refined in Singapore and bought to Australia by foreign registered oil tankers.

    When fuel stops, Australia stops, Australia stops! What is the answer?

    I don’t like Trump nor the chaos he is causing. Ord ad chaos is the mantra and some of the blow-back is high rates of youth suicide in all western countries! NZ is now 13.7 per 100,000 people, just slightly ahead of Australia.

    We are heading into an Ice Age with massive food shortages and Trump is the distraction!

    And we keep putting these idiots back in power HOWstupid are we, the world is in a mess and I DIDN’T do it the governments of the world did it, we elected them to run the countries NOT RUIN them.

    On the matter of donations to the ALP by Chinese entities, Scott Morrison asked ; what do you get from the Labor Party for one hundred thousand dollars ?

    I don’t have an answer to that question but it did bring to mind the statement made by a certain Arfur See-No-Donors to the ICAC in 2014 :

    Arthur Sinodinos insists he has ”no recollection” of more than $70,000 in donations to the NSW Liberals by his former firm Australian Water Holdings (AWH) – despite being honorary party treasurer and an AWH director at the time.

    Now, I know that Arfur is about to go to the USA as our man in Washington, the question I have, is he going to be alright on his own in a foreign land ? Should we as a minimum provide him with a guide-dog ? I would hate to see him becoming lost and disorientated in the corridors of the White House and having to tell security ‘ I have no recollection of who I am or what I’m doing here.’

    David Bruce, so why did the Abbott government singlehandedly destroy Australia’s biodiesel industry by bringing in fossil fuel parity pricing? I used to be able to fuel my vehicle with biodiesel at SAFF and Liberty fuel stations all over SA (including The metro area) and even some Caltex stations. No more. We could be Independant in diesel by now if the LNP had not done this. Which would make our vulnerability now considerably less, and the temptation to go to war would be absent.

    On this morning’s news we hear that the arrest in China of Australian writer Yang Hengjun has brought about calls by Foreign Minister Marise Payne for open and transparent processes concerning the charges of spying and the forthcoming trial of Yang.

    In the meantime our Attorney General Christian Porter is doing everything in his power to have the charges on Witness K and his lawyer Bernard Collaery heard in secret with no public or media access.

    Now, I’m not the smartest knife in the drawer but is there some hypocrisy going on here ?

    The man is a Pentacostalist he believes that the world was created 5000 years ago (and yet still believes in coal??!) And that homosexuals and all other such “sinners” will be cast into a literal lake of fire and brimstone … why wouldn’t he believe the Trumpbollox? 😂

    Thanks for this post! Michael! Did you hear, Morrison say he would leave the fighting to others. That is encouraging to hear?
    Was he referring to trade wars or Iran wars? No just global warming and Amazon Rainforest wars.
    Thanks, Bobbie.
    The power of NAPLAN is individual and that is beyond the thinking of this government. The point of primary school used to be to teach children to be able to read and write? NAPLAN measures the success of the process for the INDIVIDUAL.

    “Morrison was also giddy about his meeting with Boris, who clearly put on a performance in their 40 minutes together.”

    “Let’s just say that we’re going to have a great relationship, Morrison chuckled, like a teenager after a first date.”

    The 3 stooges ride again, in a perverted little ménage, on a road of lies, hypocrisy, feckwittery and decadence.

  10. Michael Taylor

    We are heading into an Ice Age with massive food shortages and Trump is the distraction!

    I don’t know where to start with that. There’s too much to unpack.

  11. Phil Pryor

    Every day, some of us wake to fear, loathing, desire to see decency, observation of wrong and political perversion. Some photos at the G7 meeting bordered on farcical porn, as a line of arseholes winked out. The Bonko Awayo in Brazil is set to exploit ignorance and future crises. The others included our own happy haemhorrhoid, the son of the Moron, Scott the Blot. Now that irrational greedy coercion and overbearing domineering is political orthodoxy, we need to recall 1789 and subsequent action to remove these institutionalised crooks. Australia is to send over armed personnel, to other countries, to kill and threaten citizens of those countries in their own countries. It is Murder, always has been, though dressed up in uniforms, coated with speeches and policies and interests. Filth.

    You forgot Trumps remark about the airports “Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports,” all in 1775!
    I wonder how the Happy Clapper will feel when Trump is done for any assortment of criminal activities and his own party get him carted off to the Loonie bin in a white jacket? I can just hear the excuses now….

  13. Christina Heath

    A great summary, Michael. Scott Morrison is a hollow man, though unfortunately for this country, a very accomplished con-man. He has clearly duped a significant proportion of the population, particularly in McCormack country,’Redneckistan’ (where I live). Yesterday, our local radio station reported a recent survey had revealed, 4 out of 5 Australians do not like Trump and do not want to see him re-elected. The announcer received a barrage of abusive emails and texts after the programme, claiming ‘fake news’. This mentality explains the mindset that supports morons like Morrison and Trump.
