In an expected development Malcolm Turnbull has joined with Obama to claim the ISIS crisis does not warrant ground troops, it can only be solved politically and that, despite recent incidents, it’s “xenophobic” and disgustingly Abbott-like to prefer Christian to Muslim refugees. Thank Christ Putin is ignoring them both.
While Ed Husic looks somewhat confused, Bill Shorten says this new Islamic Party will drive a wedge between Muslim and Australian communities and that there is no room for “religious” denominations in the Parliament.
Every new national leader needs to be photographed with the Commander in Chief of the Free World, but I detected a certain lack of confidence in our Malcolm Turnbull this morning as he nervously stumbled over the meaningless, obligatory platitudes we are all used to.
Without accompanying ground troops, the only bombs that ever persuaded an enemy to concede defeat were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those type of bombs will not fall on Syria or Iraq and Vladimir Putin should explain that to Barack Obama.
Normally it’s nice to be proven right. I feel no sense of satisfaction however, seeing the horrific images of murder and mayhem in Paris. I feel no urge to say “I told you so.” It just makes me sick to my stomach. Sick because it doesn’t have to be this way.
Julie Bishop’s Chief of Staff, Murray Hansen, attended a secret meeting of conspirators intent on unseating Tony Abbott. Bishop says she was not aware of the outcome of the meeting and that she only knew of the numbers on the Monday morning, numbers that were now stacked against her boss. Bishop told a fib.
It’s Monday morning and university academics have stirred from their weekend bongs to answer the call from media for sage commentary. So again we choke on our Weet Bix as we listen to the same regurgitated, Left-wing advice that we must, “engage with the Islamic community to ensure a forward defence against radical Islam”.
A suicide bomber tried to enter the football stadium but was stopped at the entrance probably due to the French President’s attendance at the friendly between two Christian countries. It was the first time a Western leader had felt the cold shiver of a brush with death.
While Prime Minister Turnbull and Angela Merkel embrace in the warm glow of multiculturalism, their foolishness is becoming apparent to the people to whom they have a duty of care.
CORRUPTION. Extortion. Price fixing. Involuntary funding of religion by unwilling consumers. Links to extremism and terrorism. It’s all about to end. The Australian Federal Government is moving to snuff out the 33 or more private halal certifiers from our food chains.
Senator BERNARDI (South Australia) (12:45): I rise today to raise a matter involving a man claiming to be an international business leader but who has demonstrated through his words and actions that he is a person who clearly has limited—if any—association with the truth.
Vice President Joe Biden’s decision not to run has left the Democrats in a precarious position. They now have one lone candidate in Hillary Clinton who is under FBI investigation (you can forget Bernie Sanders, the Commo bloke) and with an endless dribble of emails to surface from her home server between now and the election, she seems a dodgy conveyance ... and the Democrats will be left with no emergency reserve.
In September of 2012, it was reported in the pickeringpost.com that a certain South Australian Labor politician (and former Police Minister) named Bernard Finnigan was about to be charged with no fewer than 14 offences relating to accessing child pornography between August 2010 and April 2011.
Thinking further on my comments about Jimmy Barnes (Turning Back The ALP, Only Where It’s Safe To Do So, Larry Pickering, 23 Jul, 2015), it is perhaps timely to reflect on the worrying trend that underscores Jason Barnes’ use of the term “racist”. As I implied, the fallacious use of the term ‘racist’ has its roots in fascist stratagem.
I was asked recently whether any Islamic religious experts had tried to refute the claims in my book. Funnily enough, when I thought about it, there hasn’t been a single one. Considering how touchy they are about their religion you might think they would have something to say about such a high profile Amazon best seller.
