Hoax - Julia Gillard Tells Muslims To Adapt or Leave Outline Widely circulated message claims that Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard recently stated that immigrants should adapt to Australian culture, language and beliefs or leave the country and that Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law should get out of Australia Brief Analysis Julia Gillard made no such comments. The message is nothing more than a revamped version of older hoaxes that named previous Australian Prime Ministers John Howard and Kevin Rudd. The supposed comments on immigration attributed to Gillard in this version were originally aimed at an American audience and were penned by Barry Loudermilk, a US Air Force veteran and columnist for a local newspaper in the American state of Georgia.

Stand by your words Mr Rudd... WikiLeaks Party statement on the Election of Kevin Rudd as ALP Leader June 26, 2013 The WikiLeaks Party congratulates Kevin Rudd on his elevation to Leader of the Australian Labor Party and Prime Minister elect. We would urge Mr Rudd to stand by his early defence of WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief and Victorian Senate Candidate Julian Assange, when he tempered the now infamous prejudicial, inaccurate and hyperbolic statements from former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, when he made the following statement on 13th December 2010: "First of all, in Australia we are a nation of laws and therefore the normal procedures which apply to any such matter would be first of all obtain a report and recommendations from the AFP and other Australian judicial and regulatory authorities.” The WikiLeaks Party now calls on Mr Rudd to exercise some of Australia’s considerable diplomatic and political capital to insist Swedish investigators use the mutual legal assistance protocols to interview Mr A ...

Euro Falls Below $1.30 on Draghi Pledge; Rupee Drops to Record The euro fell below $1.30 for the first time in almost a month as European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said monetary policy will remain stimulative, dimming the relative allure of assets denominated in the currency. The dollar remained higher versus the 17-nation currency even as Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond President Jeffrey Lacker said he expects U.S. economic expansion to remain “sluggish” for “a couple more years” and that the central bank isn’t close to reducing its bond holdings. Australia’s dollar rose as Prime Minister Julia Gillard lost a ballot for the leadership of the governing Labor party to her predecessor, Kevin Rudd. India’s rupee plunged to a record versus the dollar. “The euro weakness today is being driven by comments from Draghi,” said Eric Viloria, senior currency strategist for Gain Capital Group LLC in New York, in a telephone interview. “It’s all about market perception of which directi ...

great things happening in the US today as laws get closer to supporting gender equality throughout the country. Strange things happening in Australia, where Prime Minister Julia Gillard is no longer that and Kevin Rudd is again. From this faraway standpoint it looks like a lot of chaos amidst ridiculous sexist media reporting against Gillard.

What a night down here in the land of the wallaby and wombat. Excellent exit speech from Prime Minister Julia Gillard. A master class in composure. I think she is a great warrior. She has great intellect and endurance, and achieved a huge amount in her three years in power, leading a minority parliament. She was under enormous, oppressive, destabilizing pressure, coming from all sides, especially from within. Perhaps also, she and her government, were guilty of some unconscious self sabotage, of not selling to the public, their extraordinary achievements, not the least of which was, in large part, avoiding the global financial crisis. Now Australians have to make the unenviable choice between Kevin Rudd, or Tony Abbot, a little ways down the track. I don't know what you think, but to me, they are alike in one crucial way, they both seem like mad guys. They claim to care only for the best interests of the Australian public, but it seems blatantly transparent that both men predominantly operate from a posi ...

Australia poll shows edge for Kevin Rudd Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard's fragile leadership came under renewed pressure after an opinion poll showed archrival and predecessor Kevin Rudd could save the government from an election defeat if he returned as leader of the ruling Labor party. Ms. Gillard has already seen off two attempts by Mr. Rudd and his allies to unseat her, most recently in March, apparently smoothing her path to contest a Sept. 14 election. Now, a Nielsen poll published in Fairfax newspapers has indicated Labor needs to bring back Mr. Rudd if it wants to avoid a landslide defeat. Under Ms. Gillard, popular support for the center-left Labor party has sunk to 29%, according to the latest poll, while backing for the conservative opposition, led by Tony Abbott, has climbed to 47%. On a two-party preferred basis--which factors in voters' second preferences as in real elections--Labor under Ms. Gillard trails the center-right Liberal-National coalition by 43% to 57%. If Mr. Rudd were ...

Bill Shorten gauges support as MPs query Prime Minister Julia Gillard's tactics EXCLUSIVE BY SIMON BENSON THE DAILY TELEGRAPH JUNE 13, 2013 12:00AM LABOR powerbroker Bill Shorten hit the phones over the past few days to test the waters on Julia Gillard's leadership, in a sign her backers are concerned her hold on the job could be weakening. While the Workplace Relations Minister declared his support for the PM yesterday, two Labor MPs confirmed he had called them to gauge their support for Ms Gillard. They said Mr Shorten had not lobbied them either way but had asked whether they still supported the PM or wanted a return to Kevin Rudd. Mr Shorten himself has been flooded with calls from MPs seeking guidance or to pledge support since weekend reports that his own support for Ms Gillard had softened. Meanwhile, Ms Gillard's attack on the Coalition over a misogynistic menu appeared to backfire last night when the restaurateur revealed he penned the offensive words - and did not present them at the Liberal fu ...

Julia Gillard loses significant support among caucusABC Updated June 9, 2013, 4:45 pm The ABC understands Prime Minister Julia Gillard has lost significant support in the Labor caucus. It comes after a week in which Labor disunity was on full display in Canberra and former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd re-emerged very publicly. ABC Insiders presenter Barrie Cassidy says Mr Rudd is the only figure being considered as an alternative Prime Minister. Mr Cassidy spoke about the tensions within the party on Insiders this morning. "I am now very strongly of the view that Julia Gillard will not lead Labor into the next election," he said. "I think there will be a change either by her own hand or the actions of others. And I'm not relying entirely on guesswork here." , Mr Cassidy says key Labor players are now planning when and how Ms Gillard should be approached to step aside. "Those who have changed their thinking are convinced that in any case, she must be close to deciding for herself that continuing on through a ...

I'm not sure why Prime Minister Julia Gillard is supposedly so unpopular. Yes, I can understand the public being upset with her collusion with the anti-worker grubs in the AWU to get rid of Kevin Rudd, but his Prime Ministership was a shambles. I love Rudd for saving us from the global financial crisis and the apology to the Stolen Generations. But those achievements were long behind him when his office became moribund and dysfunctional. Gillard is one of the rare Prime Ministers who takes action on reform and not just talk about it. Rudd talked about the mining tax, but did nothing about it. Julia did. Gillard finally made the carbon tax a reality, as demanded by the Australian people who wanted action on climate change. The tax has already worked to bring down Australia's pollution rates. At the same time compensation measures have protected the people from the greedy polluters passing on the costs to us. A result of this is a lower cost of living for Australians. Abbott wants to scrap this. Gillard has ...
WHY WAS FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL McClelland replaced with Nicola Roxon? Dumped attorney-general Robert McClelland says the Labor Party has not gone far enough in cracking down on corruption in the union movement, citing examples going back to the 1990s connected to Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Mr McClelland, a Kevin Rudd supporter who was demoted from cabinet by Ms Gillard late last year, made a thinly veiled reference to a case involving Ms Gillard and her former partner, Bruce Wilson, a former official of the Australian Workers Union. The former attorney-general spoke in Parliament yesterday during debate over the government’s legislative response to the Health Services Union scandal. Mr McClelland called for the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Bill to be strengthened to increase penalties and give union members the ability to trigger investigations if they suspected corruption. Mr McClelland repeatedly referred to allegations made against Mr Wilson that have been made several times in the Victor ...

FORMER Prime Minister John Howard predicts Prime Minister Julia Gillard will be rolled by her predecessor Kevin Rudd before the next election.
US diplomats monitored the progress of Gillard Philip Dorling December 9, 2010 US DIPLOMATS closely followed the rise of Prime Minister Julia Gillard, applauded her shedding of past Labor Left allegiances and confidently predicted she would be the next Prime Minister more than eight months before she deposed Kevin Rudd as federal Labor leader. Secret United States embassy cables obtained by WikiLeaks and provided to The Age reveal US diplomats in Canberra paid close attention to Ms Gillard, identifying her at an early stage as the ''rising star'' of the Rudd Labor government, rapidly outshining Treasurer Wayne Swan and all others. Although an early report by ambassador Robert McCallum noted Ms Gillard was ''a loyal and competent deputy'' to Mr Rudd, US diplomats had no doubt about the full extent of her political ambitions and as early as June 2008 declared her the ''front-runner'' to replace Mr Rudd as Labor leader, a goal she would achieve two years later.
