Ban Ki-moon, with a grin from ear to ear, sat in a seat for the privileged while watching a politicised opening ceremony in Rio that presented a case for global warming with a litany of repeated Al Gore lies.
Australia’s unique cartoon reputation is dying along with a dying Press that once proudly displayed them. Only The Australian’s Bill Leak is prepared to take on the PC police in maintaining the Aussie cartoonists' obligation to “stick it up ‘em” and God do they need it stuck up ‘em right now.
Either Obama is a fool (which he is not) or he is deliberately facilitating North Korea’s nuclear capability as a stepping stone to America for Iran’s bomb. Both rogue nations are in lockstep and screeching, “death to America”. Iran is desperate for the bomb before the lunatic Shia Administration is voted out of Office and the Zika Kid is doing Iran’s bidding.
Has anyone noticed that banks have lately been ignoring whatever the RBA sets as an interest rate? The cash rate makes no difference when it’s this low anyway. And whatever Morrison suggests is the reason, it can be safely ignored.
According to Egypt’s TV14 network, Obama had secretly transferred eight billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood, not the Egyptian Government, as payment to guarantee that a large portion of the Sinai Peninsula would be turned over to the terrorist organisation Hamas, an enemy of both the United States and Israel.
It’s easy to dismiss the Rudd/Turnbull altercation over an endorsement for a UN Secretary General post as just another intra party squabble but it is prescient of a forthcoming internal move to cleanse the Party of Turnbullites. And even the stick insect is now having doubts about having knifed Abbott.
While authorities grapple with the new ice epidemic, another far more insidious drug is about to swamp it... and this one makes ice look like aspirin.
Once upon a time, two crafty tailors convinced the Emperor that they could make him a set of magic clothes. They told all the people that these robes would be so magic that only smart people could see them. Everyone went along with the deception because no one wanted to admit that they were too stupid to see the wonderful clothes.
Before PM Turnbull crawled into bed on Monday night he had already decided on another Royal Commission. He and many Australians had just witnessed on Four Corners the hideous way in which Aboriginal youths are treated in NT detention centres.
Forget the swing States, forget the bellwether States! And you can throw away all templates of previous US elections... this one is like no other. On one side is an apolitical narcissist, on the other an unhinged liability, and in between is a justifiably furious Bernie Sanders with thirty thousand followers outside in the street and demanding justice.
I must have a different brand of TV from the news.com staff because I thought the GOP Convention was one of the best ever, and I have seen lots. But if Left media can’t find anything interesting to write about a concerned bloke who financed himself to a Presidential nomination without a mote of political experience then I guess it’s best to give the local hookers a call to see if there’s been a spike in business.
You might think when a bunch of oncologists gives you a very depressing prognosis, your remaining life turns to shit. In fact my life has been better ever since that depressing prognosis, except for not being able to play golf.
I woke at 5 this morning to make a cuppa and there on the kitchen floor was this cockroach on its back waving its legs at me. So before I poured my tea I gently poured the boiling water on this evil looking thing. It waved at me a few more times before it adopted a foetal position and remained motionless.
