SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY

... Michael Smith’s love for Kathy Jackson is blind

It must be devastating for iconic Gillard whistleblower, Bob Kernohan, to witness a good mate swap his principles for a pretty face. Michael Smith has done exactly that. After he and Kathy arrived back, fresh from a Bali holiday, Smith sat quietly in the Royal Commission into unions, privately defending the indefensible.


RESERVE BANK OFFICIALS IN DEEP CRAP

As Deputy Opposition Leader, Julie Bishop said that, “The revelations concerning the Reserve Bank involved serious allegations about breaches of domestic and foreign laws that, if proven, could seriously harm Australia's international reputation”.


PETRO, BARACK AN ALLIANCE OF EVIL?

Now maybe I’m getting a little senile but I’ll be buggered if I can figure out what the hell is going on here, and perhaps someone on this blog can explain it because, at least to me, there appears to be something terribly wrong.



ABBOTT, BISHOP BACK THE WRONG HORSE

... as Ukraine atrocities become clear

MH17 is fast becoming a secondary emergency as social media becomes the primary arsenal of Ukraine and Gaza combatants. Truths that were once concealed by tyrants and terrorists are now visible in gory detail on any computer screen, and not before time.

MH17 MAY NEVER BE SECURED

...but that's no concern for Uncle Barack

Semantics can decide whether Scott Morrison can still claim there has been no successful boat venture since the implementation of the Coalition’s Sovereign Borders policy.


HAMAS IS WINNING THE WAR

...the media war that is

As horrific footage of the slaughter of Palestinian women and children reaches into lounge rooms across the globe, pressure is reaching the United Nations with silly talk of Israeli war crimes. Foreign journalists who are competing fiercely for the most gruesome shot, are strangely missing in action when many of thousands of Hamas rockets reach Israeli suburbs.



LAKEMBA LADS’ CALL TO ARMS


PUTIN RIDES AGAIN

Barack Obama’s sanctions solution is just as stoopid as all his other “solutions”. Economically isolating a powerful global player started World War II and the US has already filled its quota of starting wars.

AIDS CURE DISCOVERED BY ABC's Q&A

It took a little coaxing but a typically carefully selected audience attending the ABC’s infamous Q&A program, convened last night to discuss AIDS, inadvertently unearthed a foolproof cure for the disease.


PUTIN IN A WORLD OF PAIN

... as is Malaysian Airlines

As the UN Security Council meets to thrash out a resolution damning one of its five permanent Members, Russia’s “action man”, Vladimir Putin is frozen in “inaction” between two awful options, with either likely to see him humiliated and banished to the Siberian salt mines.
