The sheeple over here just elected this mime artist as the new PM.
Yeah, stupidity isn’t just an American phenomenon…
Abbott is an arrogant prick or just too stupid.
In any case I wish the Australians good luck with this nitwit.
But the population gets the leaders they deserve, don’t they?
That is not a video of stunned silence from Abbott whatsoever. That is a video of someone containing there anger at the question being asked. I think that’s an obvious observation anyone would make should they research a little deeper into the story than just this clip.
I’m by no means defending abbott – not a man that wants to strengthen ties with Israel and finds inspiration from the Jesuits [stated recently on OZ tv while he's having dinner with 'Annabelle']. Besides, the Australian Government isn’t even a “de Jure” Government, it’s DE FACTO. But he’s not at a loss of words in that clip, he’s angry.
So wake up Australia. Doesn’t matter WHO you vote for. Our country is being Administered to by a Corporation masquerading as Government. Our Prime Minister is NOT recognized by our Constitution but instead acts as the CEO along with the board members or your members of Parliament to run the business – known as the “COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA” as registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the US – at a profit
I guarantee you 1000% that the oath of Allegiance given by Tony Abbott as he swears in with the GG will be the same oath that JG, KR and JH all gave. Try and find it in the “Schedule” of YOUR constitution Australia… Cause it AIN’T there!!!
So WHO are your politicians swearing allegiance too if they are NOT using the oath prescribed by the Constitution. YOUR constitution… You know… the one they don’t teach you about in school anymore.
We have a Corporation taking us to war in Syria. A F%#@en Corporation.
Unbelievable. This is called democracy?
If you don’t want to speak on a subject, you say, “No Comment.”
If you don’t want to speak to a particular reporter, you let them know.
“I’m giving you what you deserve.” Australians should give this scrotum what he deserves: a guillotine.
It’s when he talks that the real shocking stuff comes out.
If he were angry in that clip he could have said: ‘piss off!’ or less confronting words to that effect.
He as given a fair and open occasion to explain himself and he didn’t.
So he failed.
Peter Sellers he’s not.
Time to junk the democracy brand
Looks like the puppet control mechanism was having some issues.
The best politicians are always the ones who don’t seek power but have it thrust upon them.
It’s sad that democracy has come down to choosing between two people who were pre-selected for you!
We have the Internet now, we could vote personally online about every motion that effects our lives, we don’t need politicians any more!
We have the Technology now to DNA test our leaders, it would be very interesting to see just how closely related the ruling class worldwide are.
Not my idea, came from http://www.redicecreations.com/radio/2013/09/RIR-130904.php
Hostile silence is a good, though unpleasant, technique in face to face arguments – looks pretty silly on camera though.
I would much rather see a dna test that is able to tell if our leaders are sociopaths.
I don’t see the problem: shit happens is much more honest answer than whatever other socially accepted answers.
O.K. he perhaps shouldn’t have said that it was taken out of context, and refusing to elborate in that statement.
Let’s face it: the powers that be usually don’t give a shit about people dying in THEIR wars.
Just like the Italians and Berlusconi – the Aussies are getting what they deserve. Who are his financial backers btw?

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
– Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188
The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, short swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of unnecessary implements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues and tends to foment uprisings.

“One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms.”

“To disarm the people… was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
– George Mason, speech of June 14, 1788
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.

Nobody deserves a leader,
Think & decide for yourself.
Wouldn’t mind if all so called leaders would shut up, like this one in the video.
Murdoch? Jeebus…say no more.
this is a video from years ago. Abbott was the better option for australia, better than the six years of utter choaos, union corruption and crazy spending this country has been dealing with.
forgot to add the “shit happens comment ” in the original video when taken with troops was said out of empathy not knowing what to say to the soldier, this reporter completly took this out of context. Max Keiser I really would have expected better reporting from you
Hey I may be on the conservative side, but if Aussie troops want to get involved in America’s wars, hey I agree with Abbott, shit does happen. But I am no fan of the Islamic extremism either, so you cross that line, your brains should be exposed to sunlight.
Showing contempt for an arshole who wants to trivialize war!. After all the Fascist queers that Ozz has as leaders he’s a breath of fresh air!.
Another brain DEAD politician
Since Gough Whitlam, who was removed from office in a Junta, Australia’s political leaders have been controlled puppets.
The public is never given all the information on which to base their support or decisions.
Democracy is a failed system in the majority of Western countries.
Come on Stacy! this Tony Abbott “stunned silence” piece is at least three years old. Abbotts comment was made after he had visited Australian troops in Afganistan. His “Shit Happens” remark was an expression of a sentiment held by the troops he visited and was totally appropriate in the context he made it in. Shit does happen and it happens all the time! This reporter and others who chose to make an issue of it were being total assholes just for a news bite.
This stunned silence incident occurred way back in Feb 2011 and I think Tony was trying to control the urge to punch the reporters teeth out. As far as I am concerned the reporter in the interview deserved to get punched out because he took Abbotts “shit happens” comment out of context and was just trying to make trouble and stir controversy.
Tony, Tony, lets all vote for Tony!
Sulu, timer to 18 yrs back!
Aye Cap, revisit Howard era
Tour de Tony – Helmets on.
HOLY FUCK. We just voted this cunt in. Has he got Alzheimer’s ?
This is a behavior of a mind controlled/programmed person who is incapable of processing a certain type of information exchange. Their programmers set it up that way in order to keep them from divulging information when they are under such stress. Amazing that this person is in such a high position of power, but I guess this is just more evidence of the degree of psychopathology that is out there.
“Shit happens” Who would have thought that the master plan of breaking the USSR by creating radical religious groups, could have let to so much grief in Western society.
Ex Goldman Sach CEO waiting in the wings and media making new PM look bad already. Lets get rid of Abbott and put a Goldman Sucks guy in! Yeh!
Dear Max & Stacy
I sent this to you several weeks ago Abbott is now PM
Our country is preparing to go to an election soon.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard has just been replaced by previous Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (Labor Party)
The opposition party is likely to win (Liberal Party coalition)
Whilst Tony Abbott is the present leader, Malcolm Turnbull (ex Goldman Sachs CEO and partner) is waiting in the wings and many see him as being a “better” leader.
What do you think of that?
Check out his career on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_Turnbull
The bad thing about Australians is that they are apathetic.
The good thing is that they don’t care.
His initial comment was taken out of context, not to mention that the first comment he gave to this reporter was cut out and the bit you are showing is simply the silence bit.
1] He is 100% anti-Carbon Tax.
2] He and his new Foreign Minister have made their voices heard about attacking Syria. They have all said that ‘ARMING ALQUAIDA’ is NOT a good idea. Thus they are not holding a war hawk line such as Obama, Kerry and Hague.
If he gets the Globalist Carbon Tax/Trade removed it will be a miracle now that the Senate is blocked by moron micro parties, but once he gets it out Australia is Free of the globalist take over attempted Carbon Taxation/Trdae Eugenics Trap.
Death staring down a reporter is nothing new, he’s just not that great at it … LOL. He takes inspiration from the Jesuits? What Politician doesn’t. Politics is dirty and scheming, and so are the Jesuits, but if he gets rid of the CO2 Tax he will have done me proud and also be a miracle worker.
The Australian Government IS a corporation registered with the SEC in the United States:
US S.E.C. – COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA
They have their very own trademark registered in the United States. If you don’t know much about the District of Columbia 1871 you need to read up. The Australian Government IS an American Corporation:
the Illusion of Government
How does it matter what policies either party introduce that win YOUR vote? They are NOT even DE JURE Government. Don’t you get it? They ARE a corporation masquerading as Government. It hasn’t mattered if you vote labour or Liberal for a very long time. It’s irrelevant.
Australia – the Concealed Colony
By 2007 Australia had been reduced from 200,000 farms to just 100,000 farms. By 2013 we now have only 47,000 farms left. Do you get it? It doesn’t matter who is in power. Just don’t let anyone find out it’s all really a sham. It’s all one big corporation.
What “crazy spending” are you referring to?
Hahahaha, yeah this was very weird.
I think he thought that if he didn’t speak they wouldn’t use the footage, or he could bully the press into not using it.
Anyway, he is in office now because the other lot have been shite.
Like everywhere else, left and right is the same thing and both major parties here have the same policy. Feed the greedy population and you will win.
Not called Mini US for nothing
@flopot binkbatts, billions, checks to backpackers millions, school halls noone needs and where the unions and select builder fed like pigs at trough on tax money. Labour rode us into incredible dept.This list goes on and on. Not to mention 6 years of no leadership because of a bunch of narcissistic leaders.
Abotts comment was made in sympathy why doesnt stacy show the original comments when made . This video completly misrpresents him and is 3 years old
Okies. Thanks for the quickshot reply. That’s good stuff.
