Ground troops will wipe out the Islamic State but what then? As long as the West fails to understand Islam's evil it will continue to fail to combat the worst of its atrocities. Shias and Sunnis are Islamic just as Catholics and Protestants are Christian and regime change in Iraq from Sunni to Shia presents exactly the same problem but from a different direction.
Jacqui Lambie has shown her intellectual remoteness from the political process. If she really believes she can succeed by threatening to reject all of Abbott’s legislation unless she gets her way, then she’s due for a bolt of reality.
Blimey! 150,000 read the post, just on face book, and I tried to scan through 500 comments and with a rough count I would say about 65% think I’m a dickhead. That’s okay, even my wife thinks I’m a dickhead, but fair dinkum the misinformation proffered about horses is gobsmacking.
An exclusive interview with pickeringpost.com allowed Kathy to bare her soul and display the torment she had suffered for 28 years allegedly at the hands of Bill Shorten. Now she cannot escape the image of her attacker without screaming and shaking uncontrollably.

Since September 2001, thirteen years have passed, despite the fact that it seems just like yesterday.

It would seem some halal certification agencies are getting a little nervous about the recent backlash towards unnecessary halal certification fees and the fact many Aussies are waking up to the rort.
Gough Whitlam came up to me at a function in Balmain in 1976, he looked me in the eye and in his typical haughty voice said, “You can do whatever you like to me, but leave Margaret alone.” I felt like a naughty schoolboy as I searched in vain for an appropriate response.
Halal money from Australian mosques and Islamic State Councils is being laundered through a charity called Al Imdaad, and it is finding its way to the Syrian conflict.
Queensland’s Maleny Dairies has come out against the halal scammers and declared they will keep prices down and will refuse to be bullied into paying a halal tax on their product. Their stance has had overwhelming support from everyone except the regularly-out-of-touch Courier Mail.
