Jobs disappear as PM wastes $20m

Piers Akerman – Saturday, April 06, 2013 (11:51pm)

THE ravings of Prime Minister Julia Gillard and her circus of ministers are as detached from reality as the bizarre rants of North Korea’s L-plated junior dictator Kim Jong-un.

Secrets of the hookup culture

Miranda Devine – Saturday, April 06, 2013 (11:51pm)

THERE is one domain in which woman have always reigned supreme, and that is the business of coupling, procreating and child rearing. Therefore, if you influence women, you influence the fabric of society. Which is why feminism has been such an important weapon in the armament of the left.
But feminism has now gone well beyond redressing genuine inequality to advocating behaviours and attitudes that damage women, and threaten the health of society. The evidence is there to be seen for anyone who cares to look, in the annals of psychological disorders that afflict so many young women today.
The zipless f ... eulogised by yesterday’s feminists has become the norm for Gen Y in the form of a too-often joyless, mechanical and regret-filled hook-up culture. Sex and human connection, let alone love and compassion, have effectively been decoupled in the hook-up culture, in which dating has given way to no-strings-attached physical encounters.
The term “hook-up” is exactly as dehumanising it sounds, and a fascinating study by the American Psychological Association last month shows how disconnected are the sexual behaviours and private internal desires of young men, and especially young women.
Yet the establishment’s concern and outrage is marshalled against the rare piece of advice from elders that might offer an antidote to despair.
For instance, last week, worldwide mockery and condemnation fell upon Susan Patton, a 1977 graduate of America’s Ivy League Princeton university, and a mother of two sons. Her crime was to write a letter to the college newspaper exhorting women to marry young, and preferably a Princeton man, before they graduate.
“For most of you, the cornerstone of your future and happiness will be inextricably linked to the man you marry, and you will never again have this concentration of men who are worthy of you,” she wrote.
She is right. The fact is that no matter how much we change the social script by which we all live our lives, the mathematics of fertility don’t change and IVF is no solution for ageing eggs if you want your own genetic offspring.
Rather than angrily denying the existence of this inconvenient fact, young women are better advised, during that extended period of singledom between early puberty and late marriage, to work out what they really want out of life. And older women owe it to them to speak the unfashionable truth.
To her credit, Patton has stood her ground, pointing out that work-life balance is not just about work.
The other piece of rare unfashionable advice rejected by the establishment comes from Tony Abbott. Three years ago he said that his three daughters should consider virginity a “gift” that should not be given away lightly.
For this he was pilloried by the usual scolding fem set, led enthusiastically by Julia Gillard, who said the Opposition Leader’s comments confirmed women’s worst fears about him.
“Australian women want to make their own choices and they don’t want to be lectured to by Mr Abbott,” she said at the time.
Well, last week, in this newspaper, Abbott’s daughters Frances, 21, and Bridget, 20, confirmed their father’s comment had been “misconstrued,” and that it was not about controlling women but respecting them.
Yet in a panel interview in this month’s Madison Magazine feminist academic Kate Gleeson sneeringly asked Abbott what his advice would have been to his sons, if he had them.
“Don’t use people,” was his reply, the corollary to his earlier advice to his daughters, which was “Don’t be used”.
This irritated feminists, too, because it implied that men are the users, whereas the theory is that women equally are capable of using people for their own sexual ends. Somehow this perverse aspiration has become morally desirable.
This is the sensibility that underpins the hook-up culture that is the defining sexual norm of our time.
In a new book, The End of Sex - How Hook-up Culture Is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled and Confused About Intimacy, Donna Freitas has compiled eight years of research into a revealing exposition of Gen Y life.
“Amid the seemingly endless partying ... lies a thick layer of melancholy, insecurity and isolation that no one can seem to shake. College students have perfected an air of bravado about hook-up culture though a great many of them wish for a world of romance and dating.”
Among her most striking findings from American college campuses is that 41 per cent of students “expressed sadness or even despair” about hooking up. These students suspected it robbed them of healthy, fulfilling sex lives, positive dating experiences and loving relationships. At its very worst, hooking up made them feel ‘’miserable’’ and ‘’abused’’.
Another revealing aspect of Freitas’ book is the extent to which feminist writers claim hook-up culture is “empowering” for women, despite evidence of the opposite. She quotes Hanna Rosin’s book The End of Men which claimed “the perfunctory nature of sex in a hookup is essential to support a wider landscape of sexual empowerment among today’s young women”.
Ambivalent sex is useful, according to this theory, because it does not tie a young woman down.
Meantime, out in the real world, The American Psychological Association review, “Sexual Hookup culture” shows the disturbing psychological consequences, for both men and women. They include unwanted sex (mostly alongside alcohol and substance abuse), profound regret and feelings of shame, emptiness, and in some cases depression.
Saddest of all is that while most men and women did not expect a romantic relationship as the outcome of a hookup, fully one third of men and almost half of women “ideally wanted” such an outcome.
Anyone who has much to do with young people will have observed a sadness beneath the polished, perfected surface of Gen Y’s beautiful smiling girls. As the mother of boys I have had only glimpses of the existential pain of young women. But it is enough to make my female heart ache for their delicate little hearts, which they are forced to wrap in ice, but which emerge after too much alcohol, bruised and crying sad, unknowing tears.

Let the myth-making begin

Miranda Devine – Saturday, April 06, 2013 (11:50pm)

THERE was much sneering from the Left about last week’s Institute of Public Affairs dinner in Melbourne, attended by such hate figures as Rupert Murdoch and Gina Rinehart.
If a bomb had fallen on that room, packed with business leaders, small business owners, conservative politicians and journalists, the entrepreneurial IQ of Australia would have been seriously dented.
The ideas espoused that night were that social mobility was key to social cohesion and that ensuring opportunity is available to all through the mechanism of a free market was intrinsically moral.
The dearth of Labor politicians at the event makes you wonder why the ALP would leave such attractive ideas to their rivals.
When did the Labor party reduce itself to Wayne Swan’s puerile socialism, which tries to make a virtue of redistributing other people’s money, and a sin out of earning it for yourself?
When did Labor decide to concede to Abbott the high ground, of freedom, aspiration, opportunity and reward, which drive human progress?
Still, whatever ails the Left, it excels at mythmaking, and if Julia Gillard loses the election, as polls predict, Labor’s fabulists will be working overtime.
That will be the case especially, as Liberal strategists fear, if unrealistic expectations of a smashing victory give way to a close finish. Then Gillard and crew will be presented as the ones who “saved” Labor.
Already the ground is being laid for post-election mythmaking. Witness, for instance, how many times Gillard has talked about herself lately.
Just last week in a speech to the Foreign Correspondents Association that was supposed to be about the Asian Century, she claimed “it’s still taking the nation a bit of time to get used to” having a female prime minister.
No, the nation was thrilled to have its first female prime minister, as shown by Gillard’s popularity in opinion polls, especially among women, when she took the job.
What the nation will never get used to is an unsatisfactory and divisive prime minister, male or female.
But if you doubt Labor’s skill at flipping narratives back to front, see the Gough Whitlam legacy, as brilliantly explained by Simon Benson in the Daily Telegraph last week.
By eulogising the prime minister who took Labor to its greatest defeat, the party failed to understand that it was the Whitlam government’s fundamental abuse of power that caused its downfall.
Those who rewrite history are doomed to repeat it.

One of those Gillard promises

Andrew Bolt April 07 2013 (11:16am)

2011:

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has unveiled a controversial plan to pay cash bonuses to top-performing school teachers ahead of next week’s federal budget…
About 25,000 teachers - or one in 10 - will be rewarded with bonuses of between $5400 and $8100 depending on their experience, with the first payments to be made in 2014…
The prime minister said rewarding the best teachers was “the right thing to do”.
2013:

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard’s election pledge to deliver $10,000 bonus payments for top teachers has been exposed as a hoax.
Confidential documents prepared by the government confirm that payments to the states under the plan will cease in 2014, the same year thousands of teachers hoped they would finally secure the cash…
The 47-page National Education Reform Agreement outlining the next four-year funding deal for all states confirms that the bonus payments for teachers are no longer guaranteed.
“If a state or territory signs this agreement, payments under the Rewards for Great Teachers National Partnership will cease on 1 January, 2014,” the documents say…
Since 2010, not a single single teacher has secured a bonus under the scheme, with the government confirming they will not force the states to implement the program. 
UPDATE

The editor of Adelaide’s Sunday Mail is married to a Minister in the Gillard Government. I privately worried about this potential conflict of interest. I was unfair to the editor, whose paper today carries this editorial:

In the 2010 election campaign Ms Gillard promised families a $2000 rebate to trade in old cars manufactured before 1995 so they could buy new vehicles meeting emission standards.
“I want to help Australians update their motor vehicles,” she pledged.
The following year the Government announced it was not proceeding with the scheme.
In 2010 Treasurer Wayne Swan declared that Australia would return to surplus in the 2012-13 Budget. “Come hell or high water,” was his quote at the time. Emphatic stuff. In a couple of weeks Mr Swan will bring down a thumping multibillion- dollar deficit.
We were promised in 2010 that the guaranteed tax deduction would be increased from $500 to $1000 in 2013-14.
Ms Gillard’s quote was clear.
“We will move this country to tick-and-flick tax returns for many taxpayers with the benefits of a guaranteed $500 tax deduction,” she said.
“The guaranteed tax deduction will increase to $1000 in 2013-14.” This did not happen.
Most infamously, after declaring in 2010 that “There will be no carbon tax under the government that I lead”, Ms Gillard introduced that very tax, in cahoots with the Greens who had helped deliver her a flimsy form of power after the deadlocked 2010 election.
This latest broken promise is a deeply disappointing one as it goes to the very core of Ms Gillard’s being as a politician - education.

THE BOLT REPORT
07 APRIL 2013
INTERVIEW WITH BOB CARTER.
ANDREW BOLT, PRESENTER: Chief Climate Commissioner Tim Flannery was scaring people again this week - with claims that last summer’s weather was proof of global warming.

TIM FLANNERY: This report does for the first time, is really showing clearly how climate change is affecting a whole range of extreme weather events and making them more common. And look, last summer, honestly, was the example.
ANDREW BOLT: Meanwhile Opposition Leader Tony Abbott was threatening to sack Flannery from his $180,000 job.
TONY ABBOTT: It does sound like an unnecessary position, given that the gentleman in question gives us the benefit of his views without needing taxpayer funding.
ANDREW BOLT: Joining me is Professor Bob Carter, climate science adviser to the Global Warming Policy Foundation. Bob, should Tim Flannery be sacked as Chief Climate Commissioner?

Just like the mining tax fiasco

Andrew Bolt April 07 2013 (5:51am)

Former Treasurer Peter Costello on Julia Gillard’s super changes after she was forced by internal divisions to back off:

Mr Costello said Labor was actually raising very little revenue from these changes.
“Labor has been in office for five years. They are desperate for money. They are hungry for money. They go looking for the pot of gold. They see the pot of gold - superannuation. They create massive uncertainty. And what do they take out of it - two copper coins,” he told Sky News.

Gillard keeps up the politics of abuse

Andrew Bolt April 07 2013 (5:42am)

But if Tony Abbott were to same the same of her, he’d be a misogynist:
JULIA Gillard has lashed out at the Opposition branding its positions on foreign investment and superannuation tax changes, crazy and dangerous and describing Tony Abbott as an “economic simpleton”.
This is the women who promised a surplus this year, ”no ifs, no buts, it will happen”.

How Labor sells its Senate leader

Andrew Bolt April 07 2013 (5:27am)

A profile of Communications Ministers Stephen Conroy contains character references from his own colleagues:

A senior colleague describes Conroy as ‘’certifiable’’ and another says Conroy has ‘’never used his position of influence to really bring in more new talent into the party’’. Instead, Conroy recruits ‘’just factional hacks … numbers that give [him] support’’.

‘’Once you start going down that path, it damages the party and it damages the national interest,’’ says the colleague, who declines to go on the record.
Other colleagues point out that at no time since announcing the media reforms last month has Conroy admitted any mistakes. Not for ramming the bills through cabinet and caucus without debate; not for putting an offensive ultimatum to crossbenchers - that they pass the bills by the end of the following week without negotiation. And certainly not for destabilising his party so much that by the following week there had been another failed leadership spill.,,
What Conroy does, says another senior colleague, is ‘’stack branches and seek to use the threat to get his own way’’.
The Liberals, however, are less kind about Conroy.

CNN: it’s no wonder your ratings still aren't matching competitors. American viewers are smarter than you assume, and we simply want truth in reporting.

Please see the article linked below. Wolf Blitzer’s recent coverage of this story really was blisteringly dishonest. First, because he didn’t reach out to me or the SarahPAC staff for rebuttal. Second, because he failed to disclose the anti-tea party associations of the “architect” of this story whose organization is a competitor of my efforts to advance the candidacies of genuine grassroots conservatives – not those handpicked by the permanent political class. As the article explains, in my recent CPAC speech I gulped and denounced the consultants who engage in campaign hopping and have made a racket out of multi-million dollar failures each election cycle for themselves and their cronies. What a shame CNN continues to plug away in a floundering direction with reports like this. The shame is that they employ some top-notch reporters who no doubt believe in truth in journalism, but examples like this diminish the good reporters’ good efforts.

As a side note, I find it interesting that CNN recently disclosed that their old “Crossfire” show might hit their airwaves again. Wasn’t CNN among those who issued blistering criticism about the use of a “crossfire” icon in 2010 to represent political districts we wished to see represented by commonsense conservatives? CNN, among others, implied that using a “crossfire” icon (which was a tactic first employed by Democrats to illustrate political maps of districts they “targeted” to win) was inciting violence.

This weekend marks the anniversary of two pogroms.

First, the Kishinev pogrom. Kishinev was the capital of the Bessarabia province of the Russian Empire (now it's Moldova). About one in three people living there was Jewish. The pogrom was triggered by the murder of a boy in the nearby town of Dubossary. The newspapers at the time claimed the Jews had killed him to use his blood to make matzo for Passover. The pogrom lasted for two days, the cops only stopped it on the third. The New York Times reported at the time: "The anti-Jewish riots in Kishinev, Bessarabia, are worse than the censor will permit to publish. There was a well laid-out plan for the general massacre of Jews on the day following the Russian Easter. The mob was led by priests, and the general cry, "Kill the Jews," was taken- up all over the city. The Jews were taken wholly unaware and were slaughtered like sheep. The dead number 120 and the injured about 500. The scenes of horror attending this massacre are beyond description. Babes were literally torn to pieces by the frenzied and bloodthirsty mob. The local police made no attempt to check the reign of terror. At sunset the streets were piled with corpses and wounded. Those who could make their escape fled in terror, and the city is now practically deserted of Jews".

Significantly, this weekend also marked the 19th anniversary of the start of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. In the following 100 days in this tiny country, more than one million people were murdered during ethnic strife. It left more than 300,000 orphans, half a million rape victims, thousands infected with HIV and anguish of incomprehensible proportions in this tiny nation of 11.7 million people.

Lest we forget.

A Remarkable Address To The Recent Durban Conference In NY
These are the words of Simon Deng, once a Sudanese slave. He is addressing the Durban Conference in NY.
" I want to thank the organizers of this conference, The Perils of Global Intolerance. It is a great honor for me and it is a privilege really to be among today’s distinguished speakers.
...
I came here as a friend of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. –I came to protest this Durban conference which is based on a set of lies. It is organized by nations who are themselves are guilty of the worstkinds of oppression.
It will not help the victims of racism. It will only isolate and target the Jewish state. It is a tool of the enemies of Israel . The UN has itself become a tool against Israel . For over 50 years, 82 percent of the UN General Assembly emergency meetings have been about condemning one state - Israel . Hitler couldn’t have been made happier.
The Durban Conference is an outrage. All decent people will know that.
But friends, I come here today with a radical idea. I come to tell you that there are peoples who suffer from the UN’s anti-Israelism even more than the Israelis. I belong to one of those people.
Please hear me out.
By exaggerating Palestinian suffering, and by blaming the Jews for it, the UN has muffled the cries of those who suffer on a far larger scale.
For over fifty years the indigenous black population of Sudan -- Christians and Muslims alike --- has been the victims of the brutal, racist Arab Muslim regimes in Khartoum .
In South Sudan , my homeland, about 4 million innocent men, women and children were slaughtered from 1955 to 2005. Seven million were ethnically cleansed and they became the largest refugee group since World War II.
The UN is concerned about the so-called Palestinian refugees. They dedicated a separate agency for them. and they are treated with a special privilege.
Meanwhile, my people, ethnically cleansed, murdered and enslaved, are relatively ignored. The UN refuses to tell the world the truth about the real causes of Sudan ’s conflicts. Who knows really what is happening in Darfur ? It is not a “tribal conflict.” It is a conflict rooted in Arab colonialism well known in north Africa. In Darfur, a region in the Western Sudan , everybody is Muslim. Everybody is Muslim because the Arabs invaded the North of Africa and converted the indigenous people to Islam. In the eyes of the Islamists in Khartoum , the Darfuris are not Muslim enough. And the Darfuris do not want to be Arabized. They love their own African languages and dress and customs. The Arab response is genocide! But nobody at the UN tells the truth about Darfur .
In the Nuba Mountains , another region of Sudan , genocide is taking place as I speak. The Islamist regime in Khartoum is targeting the black Africans - Muslims and Christians. Nobody at the UN has told the truth about the Nuba Mountains .
Do you hear the UN condemn Arab racism against blacks?
What you find on the pages of the New York Times, or in the record of the UN condemnations is “Israeli crimes” and Palestinian suffering. My people have been driven off the front pages because of the exaggerations about Palestinian suffering. What Israel does is portrayed as a Western sin. But the truth is that the real sin happens when the West abandons us: the victims of Arab/Islamic apartheid.
Chattel slavery was practiced for centuries in Sudan . It was revived as a tool of war in the early 90s. Khartoum declared jihad against my people and this legitimized taking slaves as war booty. Arab militias were sent to destroy Southern villages and were encouraged to take African women and children asslaves. We believe that up to 200,000 were kidnapped, brought to the North and sold into slavery.
I am a living proof of this crime against humanity.
I don’t like talking about my experience as a slave, but I do it because it is important for the world toknow that slavery exists even today.
I was only nine years old when an Arab neighbor named Abdullahi tricked me into following him to a boat. The boat wound up in Northern Sudan where he gave me as a gift to his family. For three and a half years I was their slave going through something that no child should ever go through: brutal beatings and humiliations; working around the clock; sleeping on the ground with animals; eating the family’s left-overs. During those three years I was unable to say the word “no.” All I could say was “yes,” “yes,” “yes.”
The United Nations knew about the enslavement of South Sudanese by the Arabs. Their own staff reported it. It took UNICEF – under pressure from the Jewish –led American Anti-Slavery Group -- sixteen years to acknowledge what was happening. I want to publicly thank my friend Dr. Charles Jacobs for leading the anti-slaveryfight.
But the Sudanese government and the Arab League pressured UNICEF, and UNICEF backtracked, and started to criticize those who worked to liberate Sudanese slaves. In 1998, Dr. Gaspar Biro, the courageous UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Sudan who reported on slavery, resigned in protest of the UN’s actions.
My friends, today, tens of thousands of black South Sudanese still serve their masters in the North and the UN is silent about that. It would offend the OIC and the Arab League.
As a former slave and a victim of the worst sort of racism, allow me to explain why I think calling Israel a racist state is absolutely absurd and immoral.
I have been to Israel five times visiting the Sudanese refugees. Let me tell you how they ended up there. These are Sudanese who fled Arab racism, hoping to find shelter in Egypt . They were wrong. When Egyptian security forces slaughtered twenty six black refugees in Cairo who were protesting Egyptian racism, the Sudanese realized that the Arab racism is the same in Khartoum or Cairo . They needed shelter and they found it in Israel . Dodging the bullets of the Egyptian border patrols and walking for very long distances, the refugees’ only hope was to reach Israel ’s side of the fence, where they knew they would be safe.
Black Muslims from Darfur chose Israel above all the other Arab-Muslim states of the area. Do you know what this means!!!?? And the Arabs say Israel is racist!!!?
In Israel , black Sudanese, Christian and Muslim were welcomed and treated like human beings. Just go and ask them, like I have done. They told me that compared to the situation in Egypt , Israel is “heaven.”
Is Israel a racist state? To my people, the people who know racism – the answer is absolutely not. Israel is a state of people who are the colors of the rainbow. Jews themselves come in all colors, even black. I met with Ethiopian Jews in Israel . Beautiful black Jews.
So, yes … I came here today to tell you that the people who suffer most from the UN anti-Israel policy are not the Israelis but all those people who the UN ignores in order to tell its big lie against Israel: we, the victims of Arab/Muslim abuse: women, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, homosexuals, in the Arab/Muslim world. These are the biggest victims of UN Israel hatred.
Look at the situation of the Copts in Egypt , the Christians in Iraq , and Nigeria , and Iran , the Hindus and Bahais who suffer from Islamic oppression. The Sikhs. We – a rainbow coalition of victims and targets of Jihadis -- all suffer. We areignored, we are abandoned. So that the big lie against the Jews can go forward.
In 2005, I visited one of the refugee camps in South Sudan . I met a twelve year old girl who told me about her dream. In a dream she wanted to go to school to become a doctor. And then, she wanted to visit Israel . I was shocked. How could this refugee girl who spent most of her life in the North know about Israel ? When I asked why she wanted to visit Israel , she said: “This is our people.” I was never able to find an answer to my question.
On January 9 of 2011 South Sudan became an independent state. For South Sudanese, that means continuation of oppression, brutalization, demonization, Islamization, Arabization and enslavement.
In a similar manner, the Arabs continue denying Jews their right for sovereignty in their homeland and the Durban III conference continues denying Israel ’s legitimacy.
As a friend of Israel , I bring you the news that my President, the President of the Republic of South Sudan , Salva Kiir -- publicly stated that the South Sudan embassy in Israel will be built--- not in Tel Aviv, but in Jerusalem , the eternal capital of the Jewish people.
I also want to assure you that my own new nation, and all of its peoples, will oppose racist forums like the Durban III. We will oppose it by simply telling the truth. Our truth.
My Jewish friends taught me something I now want to say with you.
AM YISROEL CHAI!
The people of Israel lives!
Thank you "

David was a man of great accomplishments. But have you ever wondered what made him great? 

David himself revealed the answer in Ps 18:35, where he wrote, “Your gentleness has made me great.” 

It was not God’s judgment or wrath that made David great but rather, His tender mercies that gave David the strength and boldness to face his enemies. Start feeding on the Lord’s kindness, mercy and love for you, and be filled with boldness, faith and strength to knock every giant down.
