For three years, despite a mountain of damning evidence, I have always maintained Julia Gillard will never be charged, let alone see the inside of a jail. Commissioner Dyson Heydon’s scathing criticism of her is like water off a duck’s back to Julia and she now says an apology is in order. Yes, it is... so when do we get one?
The Taliban's shooting of 132 schoolkids in schoolrooms takes a special kind of Islam, the Saudi Wahhabi kind, the same kind that ISIS espouses and the same kind that Australian Muslims are breaking their necks to join overseas, but when their passports are cancelled they are forced to commit their terrorist attacks on home soil instead.
Farmers are where we are in Australia today because of the choices we’ve made. Business decisions that justify taking on debt given the geography, historical data and terms of trade for areas concerned are ‘ballsy’ to say the least.
When the flowers have gone and the blood is cleaned from the walls and the bullet holes spackled over in the Lindt Cafe, outrage will slowly replace grief and the true story of a well-planned, albeit amateurish, terrorism attack will emerge.
A national leader needs to be non combative and inclusive in times of crisis but Tony Abbott is seething inside and he has finally mentioned the word “terrorism”. Unfortunately he still talks of a “madman” and a “lone wolf”. He still maintains the Islamic State is not an Islamic movement.
It was a poignant moment when one lady first left flowers at Martin Place, she stood back with tears rolling down her cheeks, momentarily searching for an answer that never came, before she quietly wandered off into the crowd.
Australia has woken to the devastating news that two hostages died in the Lindt Café last night. Like all Australians, my thoughts and prayers are with the families of those now grieving.
The cries of “lone wolf attack” echo through the media as a politically correct alternative to “Islamic terrorism”. But the warped Muslim mind of, Sheik Man Haron Monis, was there for all to see on his facebook page, with more than 14,000 “likes”... well it was there before some embarrassed person took it down.
A follower of the Prophet Mohammed came to Sydney today, but he didn’t come to see the sights or enjoy the famous Australian welcome. No, this man came to deliver a message to the people of Australia; it is a message that most of us probably don’t want to hear.
Iranian “refugee”, Manteghi Bourjerdi (AKA Sheik Man Haron Monis, pictured), walked free on bail into the Lindt cafe and left his filthy, indelible mark on Australia forever.
Please don’t jump to conclusions, this Islamic incident may have no connection to Islam. It may have nothing to do with mushrooming mosques where our destruction is planned and it may have nothing to do with ISIS’s atrocities and the jihadist flag may have nothing to do with jihadists.
SKY’s attempt to sanitise Graham Richardson is a disgrace and made more obscene by Richardson’s attempt to sanitise himself using a willing and giggling Alan Jones as a co-broadcaster. But Alan might have to find himself a new best friend if ICAC and Kate McClymont of the Sydney Morning Herald have their way.
It won’t need Senate approval, it will not affect business or consumer confidence, it will reduce the deficit and it’s not before time. The obesity is chronic and it should have been Joe Hockey’s first target rather than pensioners, motorists and sick people.
