Morrison has poisoned the LNP well, possibly for generations – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Howard began the slide referring to the LNP as a “broad church” courting cashed-up Pentecostals and Morrison was one who accepted his offer to makeover the LNP.  Bob Santamaria and the DLP made religion the centre of Labor politics in the 50s and look how long it took them to recover. The ALP was branded “godless socialists” back then and Murdoch still does it today appealing to the fringe of Australian society. However, when any already concentrated minority decides to organize and join a political party history shows they can take over the party and form governments and they do. Because Howard opened the door Morrison and his ilk rushed in.

Even typing those words leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Will he attempt a come-back? Will his poisonous personality rear up out of the darkness? Or will he pull the pin on his parliamentary career, and move to the U.S., where nobody will know him, and he can make lots of money preaching to the terminally lost souls of the Trumpian world?

Robodebt inquiry: Scott Morrison says it’s ‘distressing’ ministers not warned about scheme’s legal risks | Royal commission into robodebt | The Guardian

Scott Morrison appears before the robodebt royal commission.

If all goes wrong simply blame others

Scott Morrison has disputed that public servants felt pressure not to inform him of legal risks about the robodebt scheme, telling a royal commission they had an “obligation and duty” to warn ministers of problems and it was “distressing” they never did.

Scott Morrison gives Australia the middle finger with the help of Prime Minister Anthony AlbaneseKangaroo Court of Australia

Scott Morrison lied to the Australian public, again, when he said he would cooperate with the “Inquiry into the Appointment of the Former Prime Minister to Administer Multiple Departments”. Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has allowed Scott Morrison to get away with the lie and he would have known Scott Morrison was lying as soon as the words left Morrison’s mouth.

Mr Morrison refused to meet with former High Court judge Virginia Bell who headed up the inquiry and instead he answered questions via a lawyer.

Virginia Bell handed down her report on Friday the 25th of November 2022. The report starts off with an overview:

The damning report into Scott Morrison and his multiple ministries created a compelling case for a parliamentary vote to condemn his conduct.

There are no doubts about the damage caused by his decision as prime minister to be sworn into other portfolios without telling the ministers, the parliament or the people.

Former High Court judge Virginia Bell sets out the harm: undermining confidence in government; creating confusion over responsibilities; avoiding accountability.

Scott Morrison copies Donald Trump’s corruption strategy and claims he has the power to declare government documents classifiedKangaroo Court of Australia

Scott Morrison has copied Donald Trump’s corruption strategy by claiming he has the power to declare documents and meetings classified by “waving a magic wand and just saying it’s so”. While on the flip side Donald Trump, who is currently under investigation by the FBI for stealing classified documents, claims he declassified the documents in his head which is almost identical to Scott Morrison’s magic wand trick.

There are still many questions surrounding Scott Morrison’s ill-starred time at the helm of Tourism Australia, writes Jommy Tee.

Morrison signs on with political network home to ‘intolerant far right’

Mr Morrison gave a speech sharply critical of China at an event jointly organised by the IDU.

Showing his true colors is Morrison being paid?

Mr Morrison’s register of interests was updated this week to reflect a new position on the board of the International Democrat Union.

The IDU was founded as an international alliance of political parties from the right to centre-right, but the former PM did not respond to questions about what many observers say is its increasing affiliation with populist, Christian anti-immigration parties on the far right of European politics.

Doug Saunders, international affairs columnist for Canada’s largest newspaper, The Globe and Mail, said the IDU had “shifted to the intolerant far right” as it kept Fidesz, the party of Hungarian autocrat Viktor Orban, among its members.

Morrison without remorse as he hints at injustice over ministries scandal

Mr Morrison was steely eyed in the face of condemnation.

Morrison speaks on Paul Murray’s Murdoch platform to less than 50,000 Australians and remains symbolically and seemingly blameless and shameless but we know the opposite to be the case. His Pentecostal invasion of the Australian Liberal Party will have long-lasting effects all of which were triggered by John Howard. What has taken over 2 decades will now take just as long if not more to repair. Democracy is a multicultural and secular value. Morrison, the Pentecostalists and LNP betrayed that.

Morrison’s whole employment history has been a closed book. The pages of which he doesn’t want read let alone discussed. What we do know is it’s been one of blunder after blunder, and broken contracts due to failed promise. The failure on Morrison’s side rather than on those who employed him and were left painfully disappointed holding NDAs.

Despite three weeks in which his political legacy has collapsed and his personal character condemned, Scott Morrison is showing no signs of remorse.

Only now have the details been uncovered to show how long it took for the former government to decide the grants. The results are another reminder of the way political ambition now distorts the use of taxpayer funds on policies that are meant to be about the national interest – and why it is important that Anthony Albanese has vowed not to repeat this pattern now he sits in the prime minister’s suite.

Fran Bailey: Ex-minister who ousted Scott Morrison from Tourism Australia says he must leave parliament

Lessons never learned and gutsy decisions never made by the LNP. Remember when Abetz helped send the serial fraudster Damian Mantach to Victoria to continue his criminal habits here simply to keep it hush hush in Tassie. The LNP is reported to have lost millions and gained no backbone.

It could be argued they did the same with Morrison after the NZ debacle followed by the one with Fran Bailey here. Then the seat of Cook and all the way to PM. Morrison was the tin can being kicked down the road. The LNP knew perfectly well who and what Scott Morrison was yet protected him and themselves along the journey.

Trump’s whole history was a model of the social grift serially hiding the past by any means with the aid of all those who’d be compromised if the truth came out. All for the sake of winning while moving forward and always buring Integrity along the way. Trump and Morrison were like Icarus until their protective wax was melted for challenging the sun, they finally crash landed. The real Scott Morrison has finally been revealed and as much as we are all red faced he’s proved to be a serial fraudster like Trump. Mind you it doesn’t say much about the LNP, Howard, Fran Bailey ( ‘I was gobsmacked when he became prime minister’ ). They were all party to the deception even if it meant decieving each other just as was done with the likes of Damian Mantach. Everyone on board protecting themselves like Eric Abetz and crew?

Former Howard government minister Fran Bailey says she forced Scott Morrison out as head of Tourism Australia because of a “complete lack of trust” and has called on him to quit federal parliament immediately.In her strongest criticism of the former prime minister yet, Bailey claimed she felt bullied by Morrison and that he had not consulted her on key decisions as managing director of the nation’s tourism body.

The stench of Morrison’s dormant constitutional coup – » The Australian Independent Media Network

We cannot accept the LNP’s and Dutton’s cry to “forget the past and get on with it”

Morrison is not yet telling the full story. We have no reason to believe anything he says. There is clear evidence of trying to get around the requirements of the constitution and breaking any number of conventions and understanding about how responsible democratic government operates. There’s been a long pattern of this. Morrison may now be dead meat, but the smell, the feel and the taste of his lawless regime will persist until there is a searching investigation.

The Greens will ask for the inquiry into the Cartier watches controversy to reconvene following revelations of Scott Morrison’s secret appointment to the finance portfolio.

Then Australia Post boss Christine Holgate was stood down in October 2020 after she gifted expensive watches – valued at $20,000 – to four executives as a reward for their performance.

Mr Morrison, the prime minister, declared in parliament “she can go” if she didn’t choose to stand aside voluntarily.

In 2021, a Senate inquiry heard evidence from the finance department not knowing Mr Morrison also held that portfolio in secret.

Scott Morrison’s attempt at securing a legacy has blown up in his face

Scott Morrison’s attempt at securing a legacy has blown up in his face

“What’s astounding is the kind of determination that Scott Morrison was bringing to bear.

‘‘What you had … is a kind of Trump envy.”

‘‘Morrison wanted to imitate that in some way to try and accumulate some of the kinds of expanse of executive power that was not naturally allowed under our parliamentary system.”

Many conventions of Westminster democracy, like public servants providing frank and fearless advice without thinking of politics, have slowly declined without much notice.

But Mr Morrison’s secret portfolio scheme was an unusually direct challenge to pretty core principles of democracy.

Australian democracy has always been a form of ministerial government: one person is vested with the legal authority to administer a portfolio and be held responsible for it.

By repeatedly inserting himself as an alternative decision maker Mr Morrison violated a key principle and one likely to feature in a legal challenge over a project he cancelled while secretly acting as the Resources Minister.

The secrecy that surrounded Mr Morrison’s accumulation of power was also incompatible with transparent government.

But a secrecy fetish alone does not entirely explain behaviour he had only recently disclosed.

Dictator Morrison and the ‘you made me do it’ defence

While this is undoubtedly a disgraceful “trashing of democracy”, as Prime Minister Anthony Albanese described it, it is hardly out of character for a man who denigrated his privileged position throughout his prime ministership. Indeed, Morrison even admitted his distrust of “governments” at the first opportunity, in front of fellow Pentecostal worshippers, following the toppling of his ridiculous excuse for a Government.

Even in the political afterlife, Morrison departs from the norm

By urging his audience not to trust in the institution of government itself, and by taking his Pentecostal rhetoric to such heights, Morrison is parting with former prime ministerial convention.

Morrison Courts Pentecostal world domination

“He said it, We read it, But didn’t believe it. Until we read it in Rolling Stone”

Is a song that might well be applied to the attempted Pentecostalist takeover of the Australian Government. A takeover that’s been stopped in its tracks for the moment but is not yet guaranteed ended. For them, the separation of powers between religion and the state is an anathema born out of multiculturalism and its attended beliefs that need to be stopped. Conversion and forced assimilation their desired path. Morrison’s second coming of Australia. Even Peter Dutton has taken it on as a core of the LNP’s opposition and strategy to divide the Left. Meanwhile, Scott Morrison is ready to reveal his true affiliation with OAN and its Pizzagate imaginings and origins.

The Failure of a Faux PM

Looking back at Scott Morrison and the legacy he left behind.

Where do we go from here with a pulpit-loving, personalized-prosperity preaching Pentecostal prime minister who habitually shirks responsibility, who refuses to apologise for even the most minor infraction to avoid accountability and is quite content to allow his ministers to fly under the radar without the threat of a federal ICAC hanging over their heads? A prime minister who increases the secrecy of government, often legislating or introducing bills to avoid scrutiny of cabinet while reducing the freedom of others, silencing them through litigation and costly secret trials that could result in gaol time for speaking out?

Why the most important election? Because Morrison was on a path to Trumpian glory. Surrounded by white evangelicals and emboldened by the sound of acquiescence from his front benchers, he was on a path to immortality. He had no reason to listen, he suffered no self-doubt.

His disdain for conventional behaviour, his seeming inability to act respectfully toward anyone he encountered, his feigned religious conviction all pointed to something deeply wrong about this man, and his government.

Nationally, we expect our leaders to make their mark and most do so emphatically.

He never really saw past his Horizon and I’m not talking geographically

Morrison wasted his time as prime minister. The “miracle” win in 2019 left him unprepared, with little agenda, and just papered over the fault-lines and internal feuds within conservative politics. Whatever the result of the 2022 election, time in power ought not be squandered as it was in the 46th parliament.

Death of a Salesman? – by Tim Dunlop

Election 2022

He argued the other day, in the context of rejecting a Federal ICAC, that public servants should have no role in deciding where national resources go, or have any sort of oversight of what politicians should do with public funds:

“If we are going to so disempower our elected representatives to do things about what is needed in their communities, then what is the point?”

“We can’t just hand government over to faceless officials to make decisions that impact the lives of Australians from one end of the country to the other. I actually think there’s a great danger in that,” Morrison told the papers.

“It wouldn’t be Australia any more if that was the case, it would be some kind of public autocracy.”

Let that sink in.

This is the prime minister defining the normal operation of the democratic state as a “public autocracy”, arguing that all spending decisions should be taken, unencumbered, by individual members, which, you know, is the normal definition of autocracy (rule by an individual).

As an argument, it is incoherent, but it serves the purpose of redefining democratic practice as autocratic and autocracy as legitimate.

‘Bulldozer’ Scott Morrison changes his pitch to voters, promising to change his ways – ABC News

Scott Morrison looks down with a frown

Are we that gullible? He lied to get into parliament, He lied to get the top job. He lied to win the last election, We saw him lie through his first term in office. He is a salesman not a leader and we saw him pitch his illusions, tricks, and copy in plain sight from the get-go realizing that walking among us was not going to work.

He played us about as well as his ability to play his ukelele. Morrison’s whole 3-year term has been simply a campaign for another 3-year term. Meanwhile, his team was left confused, disorganized, and divided rabble. Where was the unity? Where was the man who couldn’t walk with the people? He was always on set with his media managers.

The dial isn’t shifting for Scott Morrison. Until now, the election contest has been characterised as between a man that people don’t know and a man that people don’t like. Now, it is between a man whose election would instantly bring change and a man who is promising to change himself, if just given one more chance.

So Morrison in order to stay would be only too pleased to see Josh gone. That’s why Howard and Costello have been walking the streets there, but not Morrison.

AUKUS deal: duplicity and deception behind Australia-UK nuclear submarine alliance

Talking AUKUS: US President Joe Biden virtually alongside British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the East Room of the White House.

Australia’s reputation was diplomatically trashed by Morrison’s sting. He lied to both the French,and the Americans by not doing what he had promised while backstabbing Albanese. All in all, he singlehandedly compromised the integrity and reputation of our ADF. All of his duplicitous actions risked our National Security for what? His own personal interest, his entrenchment, and praise. Now he’s even losing that National Security political debate he held to be so precious because he’s the one still lying about what he actually did. The term National Security has actually dissolved to become Morrison Security.

He lied to our American, British, French allies, and even us to get the deal done for his sake not ours. To say otherwise is to declare he was smarter and not reckless.
