I always thought I would make it until the look on the doctors’ faces changed to one of concerned urgency. Only then did I know I had a fight on my hands, but I had never lost a fight, and I wasn’t about to lose this one. All I wanted to do was get out of there but they told me the tennis ball-size hole in my lung was cancerous and at best I had maybe six months to live, and even with chemotherapy I was only a 10 per cent chance of making it. That was when the game changed for me.
So the Libs are frightened to change leaders for fear they will be labelled as another Rudd, Gillard, Rudd fiasco. Yet the truth is that voters will have no trouble selecting who they believe is better. NZ PM Ardern was an unknown a few weeks back but was able to present a palatable face to the electorate.
ASIO reckons they can’t keep up with the work load as China now knows more about our secrets than ASIO does. Well, fewer golf games might help the spooks get on top of it. ASIO has been a Canberran joke for 50 years and Red Hill’s embassies have been openly co-opting Parliamentarians like Dastyari and Bob Hawke for not much money. Neither of whom has been held to account.
Solar power only works while the sun shines – it is part-time power. Wind power only works when suitable winds blows – also part-time power. Batteries only work when charged – part-time power again. Hydro fails in droughts – more part-time power.
So the destructive RET will hang on for another two years doubling our power bills…why? Is it our punishment for forcing the PM to act responsibly? Is it a sop to the Labor Party members of the Liberal Party. This Turnbull bloke and his far Left rabble really need to go now.
It's a little painful to listen to increasingly highly moral commentators lambaste Weinstein for his disgusting predations on women and girls. Now, I know I’m sticking my neck out here, but I reckon many (but not all) of Hollywood starlet hopefuls are quite prepared to be groped in exchange for money and fame. They understand that that has always been part of Hollywood’s game.
If Malcolm Roberts is allowed to return to his Senate seat then so too should the other six, but it’s not likely the High Court will bring down a blanket judgment. Chief Justice Susan Kiefel, who was recently appointed by George Brandis, could make various rulings during next week’s sitting, and that should make for some fun and games.
For yonks they waged a war on coal And painted miners black; They threw explorers on the dole And shut the gates outback.
Abbott unzipped something last night that has been said on this blog for over seven years and it won’t get you an invite to any dinner parties because it’s not PC in inner city electorates where everyone wants to project a caring, considerate note of self-aggrandisement and love for everything Left. But Abbott is right, it’s global cooling we should fear.… It’s when the globe cools that species die and diminishing food becomes famines.
Herds of elephants are now evolving and expanding without tusks and that shows nature’s ability to adapt, despite cyclical climate changes, and man’s destructive interference. When that ability to adapt is exhausted the species becomes extinct, like 99 per cent of all species that ever lived.
The Gillard/Wilson matter refuses to die, and rightly so, as those in power seem able to slip through every judicial net, even when Gillard was clearly complicit in the worst of union illegality. Of course she had the assistance of Slater & Gordon which was also complicit, and unlike Gillard, has paid a corporate price. No-one seemed to notice when Wilson said something critical in his statement that would have made Gillard’s blood run cold… in Sec 138 he said:
He clearly hadn’t tested the “bump-up stock” for use on his array of semi-automatic weapons. The bump stock is a manufacturer’s application whereby a semi-automatic weapon, that shoots rounds at the rate of 40 per minute can, with this clip-on device, shoot rounds at the rate of the 660 per minute we all heard during the attack.
