Wikileaks reveals Murdoch has crystal balls

Post by greg parker on Sat 28 Jun 2014, 11:17 am

Other diplomatic cables previously released by the US National Archives and published by WikiLeaks in mid-2013 revealed that Mr Murdoch foresaw the downfall of Whitlam's Labor government a year before its dismissal.

In November, 1974, US Ambassador Marshall Green reported to Washington that Murdoch privately predicted that "Australian elections are likely to take place in about one year, sparked by refusal of appropriations in the Senate".  

One year later, on November 11, 1975 Governor-General Sir John Kerr dismissed Mr Whitlam as the prime minister after the Liberal-Country Party opposition blocked the budget in the Senate. 

Let's add a bit more history to this.

Bert Milliner was a Labor Senator from Queensland. He died suddenly of  a massive heart attack on June 30, 1975. By convention, if a Senator is unable to see out his/her term, the State Government replaces them with someone from the same party as the senator being replaced and allows that party to make their own nomination. As it happens, Queensland at that time was run by a pure despot from the Christian Right - and he defied convention by ignoring the Labor nomination and appointing Albert Field, a Labor Party member. Importantly, Field was also a critic of the Whitlam government and took leave from the Senate immediately after entering it.  The opposition party also defied convention by not "pairing". This means they did not stand one of their own members down when voting occurred to make up for the loss of Field's vote. By defying this convention, they had the numbers to block the supply of money and bring about the constitutional crisis that allowed the Governor General (who turned out to have some suspicious connections of his own) to call on his reserve powers. Using those powers, he  stand the government down pending a new election - one that given the mud thrown by Murdoch papers, the Whitlam government had no chance of winning.

I have always suspected Millner was murdered. This reinforces it. There is no way that Murdoch could draw on any history or current event that would help him foresee the wildly unlikely set of circumstances that led to Whitlam's downfall. And not only did he get those unlikely and unprecedented details correct - he also got the timing correct. 

Make no mistake: Murdoch is now implicated in a very suspicious death.

It does seem to be in full swing again up there.

I wonder if Chris Masters is up for it again, Greg. He is probably too old and too tired. In any case, I doubt the ABC will be around for much longer as we know it. Even 4 Corners will be asked to cut corners.
Murdoch is the devil incarnate and the Abbott doesn't mind summoning him:

Nothing surprises any more Paul.

But some one in the media should look at this. I have never more more certain of anything. There is absolutely no way Murdoch could have predicted what he did unless he had inside information that it would all be arranged.

For the Whitlam ouster, a Labor senator needed to fall by the wayside before his/her term was up. Enter massive heart attack of Milliner. But then two unprecedented this had to happen as a result of that circumstance. And Lo... both did happen. The Queensland National Party failed to send a replacement Senator chosen by the Labor Party AND the Federal Coalition parties failed to "Pair" in votes for the absent replacement stooge, Field. NO one BUT no one could have foreseen all those circumstances. And on top of that, get the timing absolutely spot on.

Murdoch should be made to answer questions under oath.

The balance of power in the Senate in 1974 was hanging by a thread. Nothing would surprise me either, Greg.
