NO GOALS FOR JULIA TODAY

The Western Bulldogs (originally Footscray) is the team of a struggle town out west and coming from seventh position to beat the Swans is a bridge far too far. I always barrack for the underdog, but not this time, because not only have I always been a Swans fan but the Western Bulldogs is Julia Gillard’s team and she has had enough good fortune (monetarily) since Rudd and Shorten flicked her.


HILLARY HIGH FIVES HOLT


A HEAVY NEWS DAY

... but Obama again takes the cake

Wow! The SA blackout, a standoff plebiscite, Turnbull poll dive, MH 17 verdict, floods everywhere, Tangles (loved him) and Shimon Peres die, a corrupt FBI, Donald and crooked Hillary go at it... news galore, but I found the most compelling item was the unprecedented overturning of Barack Obama’s veto by both the House and the Senate.


YOU'RE MAKIN' ME LOOK GOOD, BABY

... ya know what I'm sayin'?

Hosni Mubarek was booted out of office with the support of the Obama Administration. Obama financially and personally helped one of the world’s oldest terrorist organisations, The Muslim Brotherhood, into power with the hopeless Mohamed Morsi as President. Many members of the now banned Muslim Brotherhood still hold positions in Obama’s Administration.


MODERATOR ASSISTS HILLARY TO A WIN

It doesn’t really matter who won because very few voters will change allegiance, but the Left media was in form when mediator Lester Holt did not ask either contender one question about emails, Benghazi, Saudi Arabia or the Clinton Foundation. Therefore Trump was confined almost exclusively to defending himself.



THE DON IS RIGHT ... THE RACE IS RIGGED!

The media has taken a sharp turn further to the Left now that the Don is looking a chance, and if the FBI had not been thoroughly corrupted by this Administration Hillary would be behind bars. Destroying subpoenaed material is a serious criminal offence that has been inexplicably ignored by current FBI Director, James Comey, despite the fact he admitted the offence had occurred.


SO WHAT'S WRONG WITH A BIT OF INFIDELITY

... and why do gays hanker after this?

I have envied so many genuine partnerships where marriage was never given a second thought. That is until something triggered a sudden urge to be hitched, it may have been parental or even peer pressure, but married they got... and only then did their troubles start.


A CAT AMONG THE PIGEONS IN THE CLINTON CAMP

Combetta takes the 5th....But Hillary is likely gone as this breaking story reveals all anyway

Reddit Posts By Hillary's IT guy proves she ordered emails to be stripped! Twitter users have discovered a startling revelation after the user name of Hillary Clinton's IT specialist, Paul Combetta was traced. The computer specialist was given immunity by the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) when news broke that he had deleted Clinton's emails from her private server.


ISLAM AND THE GREEN GOPHERS

The lunatic Left springs to Islam’s defence with excuses like, “that bomber must have been a radicalised lone wolf”. “Radicalised” means someone else must have corrupted the poor little bearded bastard. “Lone wolf” means the heinous act he committed is an isolated one and has no relationship to Islam in general. Bloody hell! Please tell me they’re all kidding.


I WANT TO WAKE UP IN A CITY THAT DOESN'T SLEEP...

... but it seems Mayor de Blasio will never wake up?

New York city Mayor, Democrat and dickhead, Bill de Blasio has decided that Manhattan’s West 23rd Street bomb has no obvious connection to terrorism and that it was apparently “intentional”. “Here is what we know", he said: "It was intentional, it was a violent act, it was certainly a criminal act, it was a bombing — that’s what we know.” Crumbs, he has a mind like a steel trap!


BBC RIDDLED WITH A LEFT BIAS THAT IS SECOND ONLY TO OUR ABC's

... but ours costs more

Even the loyal “Friends of the ABC” would admit to the outrageous Left bias displayed by the public broadcaster... perhaps not, but they would have to admit to the fact that changes must be made, as they are about to be made to the BBC, now that the Brits have decided to leave the EU.


PAULINE MAKES A WAVE THAT MUST BE RIDDEN

... and this time, all the way to shore

The rolling eyes of the Left and the Greens’ juvenile walkout won’t change the fact that a discussion must be held on Islam, not Muslims, Islam, and Pauline clearly made the distinction. But, as she explained, Australian Muslims must be involved to a greater extent than they have been. Parliamentarians as a whole have no concept of Islam... they have decided Islam is an untouchable religion.



Editor Chris Mitchell has sunk a rusty nail into a decaying Press coffin

As sure as “The Bulletin” died a sudden death with Kerry Packer so too will die “The Australian” with the death of Rupert Murdoch. They may be on borrowed time but journalists should never reveal their sources or confidences. They should rightly go to jail rather than do so. So when a former editor of a national daily broadsheet like “The Australian” spills his guts to eager TV hosts he is playing the last post for the Press.



A ROCKY ROAD AHEAD FOR GAY MARRIAGE

...because it will be all about the question

At the moment it’s something like “Do you agree to the marriage Act being changed to allow same sex couples to be married?” Sounds pretty reasonable eh? I mean who could possibly object to that? Unfortunately the gay Left intends changing far more than that. And if the “No” case is presented truthfully the plebiscite hasn’t got a snowflake’s chance in hell.


Donald, for Christ’s sake don’t send her a get worse card!


OBAMA AND THE SAUDIS CELEBRATE 9/11

Fifteen of the 9/11 terrorists were al-Qaeda Saudis. Osama Bin Laden was, and still is, a favourite son of the Saudis, the Taliban is still supported by, and is indeed a creation of, the Saudis, ISIS has had substantial monetary and idealistic support from the Saudis and Prince Mohamed’s adventure into next door Yemen in the south of the peninsula hasn’t gone unnoticed.
