So this happened:
Eminent law professor David Flint is among four Australian law professors who are nominating US President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on the basis of the “Trump Doctrine”....

President Trump recently brokered an historic peace deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, which aimed to normalise diplomatic relations.

This unprecedented deal was closely followed by a similar peace agreement between Bahrain and Israel....

Professor Flint told Sky News host Alan Jones the Trump Doctrine is “something extraordinary” and is emblematic of the two things which guide the president....

"He is really producing peace in the world in a way in a which none of his predecessors did, and he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize."
Flint is an octogenarian who once headed the Australian Broadcasting Authority and now leads Australians for Constitutional Monarchy ("No Republic!"). He also writes commentaries that are regularly published in The Epoch Times, which is part of a media organization that's opposed to the Chinese government, besotted with President Trump, and given to publishing anti-vaccination and pro-QAnon propaganda. Flint's commentary is paywalled, but here's a hint of what he's writing:
His work at the Australian version of The Spectator is also paywalled, but here's some of what he's written:
A right-wing site called The Good Sauce has made some of Flint's writing available. Here's a sample:
When the Wuhan virus struck, Australia’s leaders ignored world’s best practice, guided instead notoriously failed modelling as well as the panic ignited by that propaganda arm of the Democrats, America’s mainstream media.

For them the Wuhan virus has replaced Russian collusion as their principal weapon to stop Trump from draining their swamp.

Our politicians’ solution to the virus was blunt and crude. It was to accelerate their wanton destruction of Australia’s economy.

They long ago begun this by calling a halt to water harvesting and transferring manufacturing to Communist China while increasing immigration but only into congested cities, making it next to impossible for the young to fulfil the Australian dream and buy a house.

They followed this with their quasi-religious conversion to global warming, which teaches the delusion that they can and they must change the climate.
I think you get the drift. Here's an excerpt from another piece, titled "Why Biden Should Lose the Election":
From November, news about the Wuhan virus will no doubt move from the front page. Our power-drunk politicians will have to calm down and think about how to repair the massive and unnecessary damage they have done to the Australian economy, including the $6 billion they admit to pouring down the drain to incentivise idleness. (Unsurprisingly, AOC ―Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez— is a fan of Modern Monetary Theory which claims all this madness doesn’t really matter.)

This change in the news will be because most Australian media slavishly follow the American mainstream, except when they are acting as Beijing’s preferred media outlet, as the ABC recently did in its denunciation of the principal victims of the communists’ monstrous human organ trade on demand. The fact is the US mainstream media no longer report the news. Instead, they are the propaganda arm of the Democratic party, once pro-slavery then pro-segregation and now so far left, they endorse the rioting anarcho-communist BLM.

Trump’s opponents are so determined he be defeated, they prefer to keep seriously damaging and unnecessary lock downs in Democrat-controlled states to avoid any recovery before November. Similarly, Democrat governors and mayors are defunding police and allowing violent BLM riots to continue, with the compliant media not reporting or playing them down, even claiming they are peaceful.

Fortunately, a Biden victory remains most unlikely. This is despite the fact that, as Washington-based strategist Gregory Copley confirms in an important new book, The New Total war of the 21st Century, Beijing’s overriding priority is to ensure President Trump, the most effective opponent they have ever encountered, will be defeated by Biden whose family, has done so very well from them.

His victory is also unlikely despite the polls. Most insisted Mrs. Clinton would win in 2016; their mission is not so much to measure opinion. It is to shape it.
So this "eminent law professor," whatever his past accomplishments might have been, is now just the right-wing drunk at the end of the bar, full of Murdochian talking points. Seems like the ideal person to recommend Trump for a Nobel.
