Astory released today covering the departing US Ambassador, and his heartfelt comments about Julia Gillard and her career post politics says many things.

Either – the US don’t believe the AWU scandal can touch Gillard, or they don’t mind being associated with a former Prime Minister who is a criminal and have their ‘on the record’ comments recorded.

Why would they do that – why would they pledge their continued support and loyalty unless they owed Gillard on some policy decisions she may have made in office that the US owe her for – i.e. US military base in NT with troop deployment for one.

The story was reported by “The Australian” and appears below:

Julia Gillard to remain figure on world stage, says US Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich

| Author: National Times | Date: July 3rd, 2013 | Link to On-Line Story. |

US Ambassador to Australia Jeffrey Bleich has tipped a future on the world stage for Julia Gillard, praising the former prime minister as an “extraordinarily talented and well-respected” person.

“She made a great impression on myself and on President (Barack) Obama and other leaders in the United States,” Mr Bleich said today.

“I know she will continue to play an important role in the US-Australia relationship and continue to be a respected figure on the world stage.”

Mr Bleich could soon be leaving his post as US ambassador with the same Australian prime minister in charge – Kevin Rudd – as when he started his tenure in late 2009.

But he says the US doesn’t cast judgment on the Labor leadership dramas, because both Mr Rudd and Ms Gillard had done nothing but bolster ties with his country.

“We have some pretty funny politics in the US too,” Mr Bleich told reporters at the US embassy today.

“So we don’t throw stones at how other nations choose their leaders and the process in which leadership changes hands.”

Mr Bleich celebrated what could be his last July 4 celebration in Canberra as ambassador today, with his replacement recently nominated by Mr Obama.

John Berry, an openly gay diplomat and close friend of the president, must first be confirmed by the US Senate before the appointment is sealed and he sets off for Canberra.

Mr Bleich said Mr Berry was an outstanding candidate for the diplomatic role who also knew “quite a bit” about Australia.

He said he wasn’t sure when he’d be replaced or what the future held for him.


Ambassador Bleich’s comments on face value seem like any ordinary message by an outgoing Diplomat leaving good will and good cheer for all those left behind.

But in this case – his comments give legitimacy to Gillard’s Leadership when he would be aware she is under a police investigation into a serious fraud.

It is reasonable to accept the US does business with Tyrant style leaders all around the world, past and present, what we don’t expect is for them to treat Australia with such contempt in the face of Gillard’s AWU history, and the fact that the CIA file on Gillard would be as incriminating as the AWU missing files.

The US want Foreign Leaders who support and foster US interest’s – so it is safe to assume that Gillard was a staunch ally of the US – else the CIA file on Gillard would have leaked.

If Gillard is charged, the comments made by the outgoing US Ambassador will mean nothing to most Australian’s, but for those who take these things seriously, it will mean a significant loss of face for the US to have been so supportive of a Leader with a criminal background.

The US are good at their job – we know that much through some of the Wikileaks information revealed in recent years … and more recently the Snowden revelations.

Perhaps Obama’s friendship with Gillard was more than diplomats just bumping into one another or up against one another in the night.

    Her shameless dishonesty makes her attractive and useful to the Globalist elites. She will not face any kind of justice. She will probably exit the Country before the Vic Police can interview her.
