Welcome to Corybernardi.com


This website is dedicated to restoring common sense and conservative principles as the best way forward for our nation.

I make no apologies for defending the important things that have made our nation great: our families, our economic freedom and the traditional values which have been the cornerstone of our society.

Subscribers to my e-letter receive a weekly dose of common sense that is almost guaranteed to entertain, amuse and infuriate. I also share my regular column of ‘controversial ideas’ that political left would prefer you didn’t hear about because they challenge their radical agenda.

To find out more, subscribe today – it’s free – and get involved with the common sense revolution. It would be good to have you as part of the team.

Cory’s Foundation



HiRes-Logo-2013In 2009, Cory established the Conservative Leadership Foundation (CLF), a leadership development and training organisation for young conservatives.

The CLF’s mission is to inspire, develop and support Australia’s future leaders who identify with the guiding principles of limited government, personal responsibility, free enterprise and traditional values. The Foundation’s training and leadership programs aim to increase the number of leaders supporting these principles and help them to be more effective in engaging with the public policy process.

The CLF assists men and women who are prepared to be a public voice for the traditionalist conservative perspective to take leadership roles in business, the media, academia, political and community organisations. It believes that having more leaders committed to these enduring values will build a stronger Australia.

The Conservative Revolution

conservative revolution coverIn The Conservative Revolution Cory Bernardi presents a bold vision for a stronger nation that is founded on conservative principles. He takes the fight to the political left and calls for an overturning of the existing moral relativism that threatens Australia’s way of life. Bernardi argues that the best way to tackle this threat is to protect and defend the traditional institutions that have stood the test of time.

Bernardi’s work courageously promotes the conservative cause and sets out a path to a better Australia through a commitment to faith, family, flag, freedom and free enterprise. This volume reminds us that conservative principles – not the populist whims of the left – generate enduring stability, success and strength.

Outside The Beltway

Outside The Beltway is the fourth compendium of thoughts, opinions and views of South Australian Senator Cory Bernardi.

His weekly comments embody common sense conservatism and traditional values and have repeatedly earned him the ire of the progressive left. His forthright advocacy and refusal to conform to the suffocating doctrine of political correctness does not always sit well with those inside the beltway of Canberra politics but they resonate strongly with mainstream Australians.

This volume comprises writings beginning in 2012 and takes the reader through to the 2013 election. It contains perspectives on culture, society and politics from a politician firmly committed to reflecting the views of the silent majority.
