The foyer of Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha, Qatar, is adorned with graphics assigning terrorism a leading role: There is bin Laden seated on a mat, his submachine gun on his lap; further along there is bin Laden again, on horseback this time, in Afghanistan... the brave regal knight of the Arab world. A huge, glamorous poster of bin Laden's silhouette hangs in the background of the main studio.
We all know that we vote for a Party’s candidate, the successful Party then elects a leader who becomes the Prime Minister. We don’t elect the PM; that’s the Westminster system. So where has it all gone so terribly wrong?
In 2012 Julie Bishop said of Bob Carr and his wife’s travel arrangements, "It is not common practice for a Foreign Minister or a Secretary of State to travel with a spouse for the business part of a visit, I guess what's quite concerning is it is against the (Labor) Government's own ministerial guidelines.
And he is not backing down. Of course his jelly-backed GOP co-candidates immediately joined the Left media in roundly condemning his stance as unconstitutional. But Carson is just one of the frontrunners in the Republican race who has never been a politician and his candidacy is candidly refreshing.
Do you notice anything curious about the following news item: “EVIDENCE OF LIQUID WATER FOUND ON MARS... NASA's Curiosity Rover has found that water can exist as a liquid near the Martian surface.
How tragically ironic that Tony Abbott was dumped as PM some two weeks after vindication of his bravest and most controversial policy.
THE limitations of our security and crime authorities were on public show the past week when they admitted they’ve found no direct links between halal certification and terrorism.
You wouldn’t want to read the UN’s 69 "Sustainable Development Goals" Julie Bishop has just signed Australia up to and if you had, you would be white with rage. Perhaps you will now believe me that Minister Bishop was a key player in the knifing of her first term PM. Abbott knew all along he could never trust her.
A unique set of circumstances gave Turnbull the keys to Kirribilli House, but he didn’t want them, he decided to stay in his far nicer house at Point Piper while he does his filthy global warming deals with the Greens in exchange for economic reform.
Modern climate alarmism was launched with the 2001 IPCC report featuring the now infamous “hockey stick” graph. This showed global temperature flat for 1,000 years and then soaring skywards from about 1900 onwards. There is just no way to say this politely - this graph was based on lies.
I wrote earlier this year that we should be prepared for an all out campaign in support of the global warming hoax from the habitual liars of the IPCC. This disgraced UN organisation has successfully co-opted the Left media to re-run docos of sunburnt polar bears and fractured glaciers while an insolvent Press will promote a flat earth thesis for the cost of a half page ad.
To discover the culprits of any coup, look no further than the beneficiaries. Those who benefited most from the Turnbull coup are those promoted to his new Cabinet plus a few obligatory women.
[I disagree with Paul Zanetti’s post mortem of the coup and I have told him so, but hey, he has a right to express his considered opinion and, despite many posters falsely attributing the opinion piece to me, I have a duty to publish it and a right to disagree with it.]
AUSTRALIA has earned itself the unenviable reputation as the coup capital of the world. Crime scene investigators are carefully combing over the events that led to yet another cutting down of a first term Prime Minister.
