Muslim migrants should integrate: Senator

Liberal Senator Connie Fierravanti-Wells says Muslim migrants not happy in Australia should consider returning home.


The Gillard Government has given over $10 million of our taxes to the Islamic cause. Hard to believe? Here are just a few recipients:

Gay marriage bill 'personal' for senator

A Labor senator who has a transgender partner says it's not right that the laws of Australia discriminate against same-sex marriage.


Many countries have banned the immigration of those who promote the annihilation of their hosts. It seems a reasonable thing for governments to protect its people. But not for our government. I was appalled to see that Gillard approves of a visa for a person who promotes terrorism. Has political correctness completely gone mad? 


UK Islamic activist Taji Mustafa, an advocate for the destruction of Israel, addressed a gathering of 500 people at the annual conference of the radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir (HUT) at Bankstown in Sydney this weekend.

Only Labor Public Servant Job Cuts Are Acceptable

Julia Gillard issued a rallying cry to Queensland's Labor faithful this morning at a Queensland Labor Conference, urging them to use the public anger about Campbell Newman's job cuts to campaign against Tony Abbott....


Australia is witnessing the tip of a sleeping Islam we didn’t want to believe was here. One stupid little film lights the fuse of a base dogma we have so far been able to ignore. We will ignore it no longer.

Sydney protest organised over social media

Social media Facebook has been used to rally protesters for a violent demonstration in Sydney's CBD against an anti-Islam film.

Islamic protest sparks violence in Sydney

Eight people face charges after six police were injured when protesters clashed with officers in the Sydney CBD during a rally against an anti-Islam film.

Not all Muslims are terrorists...

But all terrorists are Muslims. We can offer them assimilation and they will not accept it. We assume we can detect the moderate from the radical when we cannot.

Queensland Labor Party state secretary Anthony Chisholm says the party's new threat is coming in the form of Katter's Australian Party.

When A Witness Is Not A Witness

The Fairfax campaign against Abbott not hitting anyone as a teenager 35 years ago has reached cringeworthy levels.


One so-called witness, David Patch, admits he never saw the incident yet is a ‘witness’. Patch is actually a barrister working for the DPP.


My question is, how many lawyers call upon witnesses who actually didn’t witness something?

This so-called witness, David Patch states in today’s Sydney Morning Herald in a column by Phillip Coorey:

“I can categorically deny that I have had any contact, either directly or indirectly, with anyone in or associated with the Labor Party."

He said that he had rung The Sydney Morning Herald wanting to write a letter to the editor after reading the Henderson piece and had agreed, when asked by The Sydney Morning Herald, to instead write his recollections for the opinion pages.

"I spoke to Barbara Ramjan about it, that's all," Mr Patch said.


The bit left out by both Coorey and Patch are thatDavid Patch was a Labor candidate in 2004, and was Barbara Ramjan's campaign manager in 1977 at uni. In an article in the  Herald, he says he did not see the incident but was nearby.


How can Patch seriously be considered either a ‘witness’ or ‘Independent’ or both?


Former rivals and ALP members are getting very nervous that Abbott might indeed get the last laugh.
