A racist fighting racism, the loss of something beautiful and Tony Abbott polishing his rifle. I see nothing out of the ordinary. Yay, #AusPol.
Those pushing for impeachment or the decapitation of the Trump administration should be careful what they wish for, as history is a fairly brutal barometer in that regard.
Yesterday’s backlash to Trump releasing info to the Russians is the latest spat in the ugly divorce between him and his Intelligence Community. So why does the Deep State have an axe to grind?
Despite Mal putting everything into his budget, and the uber right weeks that preceded it, he’s still trailing Labor. Guess what happens now.
Budget impersonations, schoolyard hijinks and tasteful semi-nudes. It’s been a fairly normal week in the rolling seas of #AusPol. Let us wheel out the participation ribbons.
The far-right memeculture emboldened by the European anti-immigration sentiment has unearthed something old but no less brutal: antisemitism.
There’s a pattern that seems to repeat in this country. Whenever a minority proudly stands for Australia, white Australians immediately bite back.

Three extremely different candidates, undecided voter bases and the threat of the countryside coming to town… The French election is more than a little confused, albeit entertaining, flip of the coin.
Malcolm Turnbull has gut the 457 visa system to “put Australians first”. As a nation, we have an awkward history with that particular sentence.
As Turkey goes to the polls to expand the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, there’s something far more sinister brewing in the background.
The Coalition tearing down safe schools has revealed an interesting point. It’s not that they don’t understand our complaints, they just don’t care.
The rebirth of a true artist, the selling of one’s soul for sashimi, and the death of tradition, all serious, all present this week in #Auspol. So, who won? No-one you dolts.
Like it or not, the alt-right is here to stay. This week the PolitiScope podcast discusses points about facing the alt-right in everyday life and whether middle ground can be found with extremists.
