Australia’s Turnbull Tries a Dirty Deed, Meets The Atomic Sledgehammer of American President Trump…

Too funny.  Australia Herald Andrew Bolt outlinesthe leaker” of the phone call between Australian Prime Minster Malcolm Turnbull and U.S. President Trump came from down under – Turnbull leaked it.  Malcolm Turnbull tried to play a game of dirty politics with terrible results.

Australia has their own version of the “Calais jungle” filled with economic migrants unwanted by the majority of the Australian people.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull won’t accept any asylum seekers, migrants or refugees who arrive by boat.  Instead, [Australia] intercepts such vessels and sends them to remote Manus Island, in Papua New Guinea – link

Prime-Minister Turnbull is stuck betwix a big rock and a political hard place.  He can’t accept the economic migrants, and he’s too weak to repatriate them, so he thought he could turn to a fellow traveler in a lame-duck President Obama to bail him out.

On November 13th, 2016 Turnbull announced he entered an agreement with exiting Obama to take 1,250 of the pesky migrants despite the U.S. election a week earlier delivering an election victory by a U.S. presidential candidate who would be antithetical to such an agreement.

When questioned about the prudence of such a decision Malcolm Turnbull stated: “We deal with one administration at the time. There is only one president of the United States at a time.”

Dirty deed Mr. Turnbull.  Bad, bad mojo.

That sets the backdrop for the now public phone call and President Trump’s admonishment therein…  Having just had the atomic sledgehammer of Trump rightly delivered upon his grand scheme, Turnbull nervously turned his political objectives toward the media.  Prime Minister Turnbull figuring he would be able to back-up his position by leaking the tone of the conversation to the media and subsequently undermine President Trump.

However, what Turnbull didn’t anticipate is a new type of U.S. President willing to call out the scheming of the traditional political class regardless of their location:

trump-tweet-australia

Oh snap, an American president actually looking out for the best interests of America?  Rut roo, this is a new and unexpected dynamic.  President Trump doesn’t fear transparency, he welcomes it.

Now Turnbull has put himself, and more consequentially the relationship between the leadership in Australia and the United States, into a position of adversity.

Prime Minister Turnbull, too weak to effectively repatriate the migrants on his own, has allowed his own weakness to embarrassingly damage a relationship with a key ally.

[…]  Turnbull has a very nervous wait now to see if his boat people “solution” will survive. He’s also learned a very hard lesson: don’t try messing with Trump.  (link)

    Many readers are probably wondering who these people are, the ones that Turnbull and Obama decided to ship to the US. They are not prisoners and they aren’t in prison. So who are they?

    First you have to wind the clock back to 2001. People smugglers were shipping boats of people from the Middle East from Indonesia to islands in the north of Australia, where they would destroy their identity papers and claim asylum. Thee boats were sacrificial Indonesian fishing boats and many were not seaworthy. Then on sank and a container ship, the M.V. Tampa, rescued them. The captain of the Tampa EAS told by the people on board they wanted to be taken to Australia but they were in international waters and Australia told them to go back to their departing port, which was in Indonesia.

    This developed into a political crisis with all the usual suspects saying ‘let them in’. The PM at the time, John Howard read the electorate well and knew Australian people did not want illegal immigrants showing up on their shores. So he uttered the line ‘we will decided who comes into our country and the manner in which they arrive’. The next election was easily won, and he developed the ‘pacific solution’ which was a range of measures, the most important of which was the exclusion of outer islands from being a migration zone, meaning you had to reach the mainland to claim asylum. Those who did make the islands got shipped to either Nauru or Manus island in Papua New Guinea.

    This stopped the people smuggling trade and Australians were happy. But there was eventually mood for change, and John Howard lost the election in 2007, being replaced by a centre left former beauracrat named Kevin Rudd. Rudd was the kind of guy who loves globalism and recently ran a campaign to be Secretary General of the UN.

    So the first thing he did was dismantle the pacific solution. And the people flooded in – more than 50,000, with thousands more drowning at sea. The Australian navy was humiliatingly made to go and pick up these boats and bring them to shore.

    At the same time the opposition leader was Malcolm Turnbull. He was a failure of a leader, also a globalist and a former Goldman Sachs man. He conspired with Kevin Rudd to launch an aggressive carbon tax, worse than anything seen anywhere. Turnbull’s party voted against him and elected Tony Abbott as leader, a long time politician but family man who did a lot of charity and volunteer work, including surf life saving and fire fighting.

    Abbott campaigned on the removal of the Carbon Tax and the stopping of the boats- and was hated to a level never seen before from these globalist -in push backs. Rudd sensed the mood for change and decided to reinstate the detention centres on manus. and Nauru. Nonetheless the Australian people like what they heard from Abbott and elected his party with a massive majority in 2013.

    Abbott went on to fulfil his promise of stopping the boats by scuttling the fishing boats, loading the passengers onto bright orange lifeboats and having the navy tow them back to Indonesia. No detentions, no asylum, you will never make it to Australia.

    This worked immediately and the flow of people stopped. There remained one problem – the people on Manus and Nauru from Rudd’s failed attempt.

    Abbott made them an offer to fly th to their home country free of charge – an option some took up. So they were not prisoners – they are free to leave whenever they want.

    However the Paris climate agreement was approaching and Abbott said he had no intention of signing the agreement. So the backstabbing Turnbull got his revenge by plotting against him, and convinced party members to vote Abbott out of the leadership and Turnbull in. That made Turnbull Prime Minister and Abbott back to just a member of parliament. But Turnbull promised the party he would not change the laws against allowing boat arrivals, so he couldn’t let in the illegals still on Manus and Nauru.

    Turnbull then signed the Paris agreement and sucked up to Obama, and continually insulted Trump during the campaign. He visited the USA during the campaign, and met with Clinton and Rubio. He ignored Trump and continued to call Trump names like a never trump globalist operative.

    When Trump won he expressed disappointment and didn’t even know how to contact him, having to get golfer Greg Norman to make the connection to Trump.

    5 days after Trump was elected he made a deal with Obama to unload the remaining illegal immigrants – who have never been vetted – onto the USA, in full knowledge of Trumps promises to stop migrants from Muslim countries.

    It was a deal made by Turnbull and Obama after the election solely to make life difficult for Trump. Which is why Trump quite rightly called it a bad deal.

    And that’s how Australia lost a conservative PM who is passionate about his country to a globalist, who was prepared to damage the Australia/USA relationship to get back at Trump for defeating Clinton.

        Information is hard to come by, as the government let them loose and they are not really tracked. Other studies have shown the 5 year unemployment rate for similar arrivals is around 96%. Yes, that means 4% have employment. These people have very little language skills and Australia has a high minimum wage which means people with low skills simply are not worth employing, even to pick up garbage. Plus they get housing, welfare, healthcare and break Australian law for polygamous marriages, which is a way of rorting the welfare system by having your 2nd/3rd wives claim single mothers benefits. So no work for them and no incentive to work anyway. Parts of Sydney look like downtown Tehran or Beirut, child marriages and genital multilation are all on the increase.

          PLUS just about EVERY act of terrorism in Australia has been committed by a Muslim refugee and more often by their children. They are UNGRATEFUL for everything they get.

          Escaping persecution? What persecution? The first thing they do when they come to Australia is run to the nearest mosque and join up and be radicalized. Most gun crimes in are committed by Muslime gangs

          Hizb-ut-Tahrir which is banned in many countries but is allowed to exist in Australia
          They are vicious Sharia-ists and want a Caliphate
          I guess the Australian govt didnt want them going underground and the security forces and police watch them
          Trumble is an IDIOT

    I have been a vocal Trump supporter since the day he rode down the escalator and announced. I have posted comments all over the place expressing this support and my reasons for it, and have converted some folks face-to-face. I am no fair-weather vulgarian.

    THIS is President Trump’s first big test. He must repudiate this deal and refuse to take these “refugees.”

    This was a back room deal made as a deliberate thumb in the eye of the American citizens who rejected the Obama policies and elected President Trump. Now that he is in the oval office, will President Trump do whatever it takes to represent the interests of the American citizens, or will he saddle us with another 1,250 foreigners we don’t want and don’t need, just to go along to get along? Does he have what it takes?

    President Trump is a businessman, and as a man of business knows that businesses operate based upon “what have you done for me lately?” Similarly, political support can evaporate overnight. Some of us are watching this very closely, and we will not permit this to just slip away down the memory hole. He must reject this deal.

    • Agreed but I heard that he IS accepting over 1200 migrants from Australia, and that the final call was amicable, even though the lamestream reported that Trump hung up rudly and he was angry and that he made the PM of Australia angry, so I am confused…. Latest news is stating that Trumbell is stating that the call was pleasant and that Trump did not slam the phone and that they DID have a deal???? As I said, I am confused.

        I assumed the “we are going to vet the hell out of them” changed the dynamic. We would demand serious paper trail verification of identity AND law abiding background, AND we would drag this vetting process out – meanwhile keeping the illegals where they are – and we would toss flaming daggers at Turnbull the whole time until Turnbull loses the next election. Maybe Turnbull rethought his kangaroo games. It would also seem that in addition to this we would join with Australia to demand that the illegals native countries repatriate them and so try to resolve the situation in a win-win solution. And what is up with the Costa Rican illegals we were trading them for ? WTF ?

    Malcolm Turnbull is a scoundrel to stab America in the back like this. I was in Australia for two weeks in early October, before the election. Everyone who heard my American voice wanted to debate candidate Donald Trump’s potential to win. They wanted to argue with me.

    I was 9,000 miles from home and these Australians were fighting with me over Donald Trump. It was none of their business and STILL IS none of their business whom we elect as President. We don’t try to tell them to support or oppose Malcolm Turnbull, Tony Abbott or anyone else.

    If I was Donald Trump, I would make the Australians pay, by imposing sanctions, and perhaps limiting Australian entry into the U.S. We have no obligation to support a secret deal made AFTER Donald Trump was elected, for the sole purpose of Turnbull and Obama stabbing the new President in the back.

    Australians can take their illegal immigrant problem and shove it. I don’t think Americans should be “friends” with scoundrels who insult the electorate of the United States and intentionally try to undermine our new President.

    Australia, BUTT OUT OF OUR POLITICS !

    • Agreed, I am ever so tired of other nations thinking they can dictate to us and make demands. For pete’s sake ever since I was a very young child I helped raised funds for other nations. America has given and given and given from UNICEF to Doctor’s without borders to the Peace corp etc., etc., etc, and instead of being grateful, instead of building up their own nations (like we did for Europe post World Wars). We have built roads, hospitals, schools, infrastructure for other nations, we have paid their medical bills, if they have a disaster as in Indonesia, we were the first, earthquakes in Italy, billions to Israeli as well as Palestine, Africa OMG how much given!!! Not to sound like a non-humanitarian, but-uh-I think a little thanks is in order – instead we are getting demands, we are getting that these illegals or refugees have what “have rights” say what???? (that was part and parcel of the TPP which Thank God Trump ended) I thought our constitution protected American citizens, but even Schumer called them citizens of the world that are entitled to the same rights that we have,,,,uh, If I remember correctly, many of us Americans have fought, bled and died and paid for OUR rights…sorry, another rant of mine, forgive me. But we are talking about a “deal”, well what do we get in return? Are we getting anything??? Oh, maybe a thanks and a handshake??? Does anyone have a problem with this. If I may…sorry rant not over…these refugees by the way are not vetted, are they going to be getting freebies like all the other “refugees”? are they going to be angry or grateful (they were stuck on a small island and ignored)??? Or is this going to be another bite in the hind quarters of Americans, and by the way, if we and when we have our next disaster…who will be bailing us out, and who will take America refugees??? Especially since so many nations are refusing to take refugees, count how many, what %& Arab/Muslim nations, China, Japan, Russia, Hungary, Poland, hummm I could go on but you all get my drift.. Peace out!

      Most Australians would agree with you. Please don’t associate us with the actions of globalist betrayers like Turnbull any more than we hold Americans responsible for the appalling treatment and interference of Australian politics by Obama. There are multiple examples of this, including causing huge disruption to the tourist industry by telling the world the Great Barrier Reef was dead. I can assure it is very much alive and kicking.
