Australian Politics – Kevin Rudd Joins Malcolm Turnbull In Denouncing US in Indonesia

November 8, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ This is extraordinarily reckless and, in my opinion, disloyal from two former and bitter ex-Prime Ministers. First it was Malcolm Turnbull: Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has warned the Government relocating Australia’s embassy in Israel would be met with “a very negative reaction” in Indonesia, following talks with the country’s President. […]

Climate Change Australia – Take Climate Action! Stop Perth’s Dam From Filling!

August 8, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Climate alarmist and former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says “the [New South Wales} drought is influenced by climate change” and that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull must “lead global climate action” to stop it. Meanwhile, Perth’s dam is at record highs. Does Rudd want “climate action” to stop that, too? Andrew […]

Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd Wants Global Waffle To Save The UN

September 1, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ I can’t say it’s much of an agenda, with a dash of identity politics and another summit of the kind that Kevin Rudd tried here with complete lack of success: It is Kevin Rudd’s manifesto to cure the world’s ills – how he might have built a “Team UN”, if only […]

Australian Politics – The Turnbull-Rudd Admiration Society Is Over

August 1, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Remember four years ago, when these two characters were once on a unity ticket – Malcolm Turnbull and Kevin Rudd, both united in admiring each other and disparaging Tony Abbott? MALCOLM TURNBULL: … those people who say they’d rather I was the leader of my party or Kevin the leader of […]

United Nations Secretary General – Australian Prime Minister Turnbull Can’t Be A Real Liberal To Think Kevin Rudd Is Worth Backing

July 28, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ All Australian Liberal Party members should be shocked that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull wants to back Kevin Rudd’s bid to head the United Nations. And don’t buy his denials. The Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop are helping the former Labor leader already. Diplomats report they have been asked […]

UN Secretary General – How Could Julie Bishop Consider Kevin Rudd For Even A Second?

July 18, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Will Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop choose self interest above the national interest? Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has asked the government to nominate him for the position of United Nations secretary-general… Ms Bishop told Sky News she will put the matter to cabinet. ‘Kevin Rudd has requested that the […]

Australian Politics – Is Prime Minister Turnbull About To Spend Like Former Prime Minister Rudd?

March 17, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ I assume someone in the Turnbull Government has whispered these sweet nothings in journalist Peter Martin’s ear. If so, it seems the Government is not only giving up on slashing our massive debt, but is planning to increase it: While the media has been obsessing about tax, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull […]

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull To Back Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd As World Leader? Seriously?

January 29, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ This is astonishing, and another sign that the Liberal Party (which is the major political party from the Conservative side of the political fence here in Australia) has been hijacked by cuckoos: The ambition of Kevin Rudd to be UN secretary-general is fanning angst in the Liberal Party, with sharp differences […]

Climate Change Australia – Uh oh! Why Did Prime Minister Turnbull Get Kevin Rudd’s Advice On Global Warming?

November 13, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Oh dear. Has Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull really asked the former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for advice on global warming? Rudd is currently back visiting in Australia, away from his newly appointed position as  chair of the global sanitation and water partnership, Sanitation and Water for All (SWA), a partner group […]

Australian Politics – Gillard The Assassin Claims Rudd Bullied Her

June 3, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Background Tonight, the Australian National Broadcaster, the ABC, will air the first part of a new television documentary showing the machinations behind the leadership of the Australian Labor Party whilst they were in Government. In 2010, Julia Gillard led a late night coup to take over the position of Prime Minister […]

Australian Politics – How Dare Labor Have Foisted Such A Leader On Us?

August 16, 2014 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ However disappointed you may be by the Abbott Government, be sobbingly grateful it is not a Labor one instead. Former Treasurer Wayne Swan’s book shows the depths we’ve crawled from – and note which commentators thought we were actually in good hands: It was Friday, May 14, 2010, three days after […]

Australian Politics – Who Was The Worst Prime Minister Of All – Kevin Rudd Or Julia Gillard?

November 16, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Terry McCrann can’t split them: … perhaps the contest is best described as a tie. Indeed, they really did share the two signature policies that defined why their governments were worse even than Whitlam’s. The sheer fiscal irresponsibility of the $40 billion, going on $60bn and ending up who knows where, […]

Remember When Australia’s Labor Government Would Stop The Global Warming, House The Homeless And Teach The Children?

May 18, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Kevin Rudd declares in 2007: Climate change is the great moral challenge of our generation. Today: Australia has all but dumped $75 million of projects regrowing forests in the developing world and shelved a $100 million forest carbon partnership between Indonesia and Australia… Australia’s contribution to global environment programs will plummet […]

Australia Cuts Foreign Aid As Prime Minister Gillard Walks Even Further From Another Costly Rudd Plan

May 13, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Australia’s former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd once had hopes of being a UN grandee, or of at least buying us a seat on the UN Security Council. Money seemed no object, and I was astonished that no hardheads in Labor were asking about a dramatic increase in spending that didn’t seem […]

Australian Labor Government Fiasco: Crean Had No Clout

March 22, 2013 by


TonyfromOz prefaces….. This has to be on of the biggest fiascos in the history of Australian politics. The Prime Minister Julia Gillard calls for a vote as to who leads the Party, and the one person who was plotting behind the scenes to take her job, former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd doesn’t even stand for […]

Australian Political Upheaval – Gillard Retains Leadership – Gillard 71 to Rudd 31

February 27, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The following link takes you to a short video where Terry McCrann and Andrew Bolt analyse the possible fallout from today’s Labor leadership vote Ballot aftermath. That’s embarrassing for Kevin Rudd. At least two MPs have deserted him after the past couple of days. It shows that Rudd numbers man Bruce […]

Australian Political Upheaval – From The Bolt Report

February 26, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ It is looking exceedingly unlikely that Kevin Rudd will have enough backers to return him to his former position of Prime Minister of Australia, as the numbers are quite solidly behind incumbent Julia Gillard. However, what is happening is that the Labor Government is committing virtual political suicide as more and […]

Australian Political Upheaval – Labor Government’s Mutually Assured Destruction: Some Media Verdicts

February 25, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Some Media Opinion Polls this morning favour Kevin Rudd as preferred Prime Minister ahead of Julia Gillard. The problem with this is that this is not an overall Poll where the whole voting public gets to say who they would prefer to lead the Country. This is a vote only for […]

Australian Political Upheaval – Government Ministers Vote To Stay On A Sinking Ship

February 24, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The current situation is so fluid that it changes by the hour. Kevin Rudd has arrived back in Australia, and is already holding his second press conference since arriving from the U.S. barely hours ago. Current knowledge says he does not have the numbers, but you can bet that the phones […]

Australian Politics – Gillard Tells Rudd To Put Up … And Then Shut Up

February 23, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Australian Politics has just become very interesting, if it could be referred to in that manner, as we are all losers in this. Former Prime Minister and now Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd, deposed as Prime Minister in a Party room coup in June of 2010, has now resigned as Foreign Minister. […]

CO2 Tax Australia – It’s The Carbon Tax What Done Them Both In

February 21, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ With Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard now in serious struggle for the leadership of her own Labor Party, it seems that the one policy that saw her predecessor Kevin Rudd eventually fall in a party room coup might be the same thing that also brings her down as well…..TonyfromOz. Gerard Henderson […]

The Slow Collapse Of Rudd’s Great Carbon Capture Scheme

February 15, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ In 2008, the Australian Labor Government led by former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd unveiled a typically grandiose plan to fight global warming, with spending of Ruddish dimensions: Minister for Resources and Energy, Martin Ferguson AM MP, has announced four projects which will move to the next stage of assessment in the […]

Australian Politics – Getting Ready For The Fight Against The Next Prime Minister

September 13, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Julie Bishop is right: THE federal opposition has been advised to prepare for a snap election should Labor replace Julia Gillard with Kevin Rudd. Following the Herald/Nielsen poll yesterday that showed Mr Rudd at the helm would restore Labor to an election-winning lead, the Deputy Opposition Leader, Julie Bishop, told a meeting […]

Australian Political Poll: Rudd Could Save Labor

September 12, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Pretty simple proposition to put to a demoralised party: REPLACING Julia Gillard with Kevin Rudd would take Labor from confronting a landslide defeat to a potentially election-winning position, according to an Age/Nielsen poll that also finds a slump in the PM’s approval to her lowest ever. Labor’s two-party vote, steady on 42-58 […]
