After having lived in South Africa I left fearing for its future. Affirmative action was ripping the heart from a tough nation of builders, the ANC was corrupted by its newfound power and white rule had started to appear the lesser of two evils. But the transition from Apartheid is finally working and no better indication of that was the performance of Judge Masipa and her handling of the Pistorius case.
Every Western nation is confused as to why their Muslim youth is flooding to support the Islamic State, yet it’s an easy question that no Western leader will confront. The answer is deeply imbedded in the Muslim psyche. The answer is this, it has been sitting there for 1500 years and will never change:
Stoljar had not done his homework, Galbally should have stayed in bed and Gillard lied through her teeth... but she had her ducks in order. Wilson is still clearly under her spell and other witnesses had changed their evidence overnight to suit Gillard's account of events.
We are told by government-funded climate alarmists that their forecasts of dangerous man-made global warming rely on “settled science”. Their “settled science” represents a mare’s nest of computer models, resting on a few match-sticks of science, surrounded by tall forests of uncertainty
For those who intend to watch a former Prime Minister try to defend the indefensible in the Royal Commission into Unions today here’s a brief précis of what Julia Gillard and her union thug boyfriend, Bruce Wilson were up to.

I too heard the music and saw trailers for “60 Minutes” and was anticipating a Coalition meltdown with Ministers resigning en masse but half way through the program, which was entirely given over to the Ashby/Slipper saga, it was time for a cup of tea, we had heard it all before.
Australia - my Australia - is a place where I grew up embracing multiculturalism. I knew nothing else. A baby-boomer and all my mates at primary school were New Australians, as we called them then. Their parents had fled a war torn Europe to a country that was as far from their shell-shocked motherlands as it was possible to be.
I have never checked my Aussie smoked salmon for that rotten little Arab sign denoting halal certification. But there it was, that little circled bit of calligraphy (which probably says ‘sucked in’) was on my Tassel Tasmanian smoked salmon. I mean seriously, HTF can a fish be halal? Does the damned boat need to be facing Mecca when you're gutting the bloody thing?
With an eye on mid-term elections in November and the possibility of losing the Senate as well as Congress to the Republicans, will Obama take up arms against his favoured faith? It’s doubtful.
“I refuse to use the term ‘State’ it is not a legitimate ‘State’ it is clearly a death cult”, said Tony Abbott in genuine anger. An apparently reasonable assessment that will naturally be ignored by media but is the title “Islamic State” so offensive to Abbott because of the word “State” or because of the word “Islamic”? Hmmm.
Small politicians have small hands, small fingers, small feet, small everything actually, so how can they be expected to have large brains? When Campbell Newman was drafted from Brisbane Council to lead the LNP to an election when he didn’t even hold a Legislative Assembly seat, it was not so much a mark of his potential, but more a condemnation of who other than Newman the LNP could offer up as Leader.
In the “Desert Shield” Gulf War of 1990, George Bush Senior stopped at the border after chasing the cowardly Iraqis out of Kuwait. He resisted the hawks’ demands that he march on Baghdad, but George Junior had other ideas and in a knee jerk rage in 2003 he decided on an Iraqi regime change. That decision which resulted in his “Mission Completed” farce is the reason for the current Iraq chaos.
