HARD FACED, HARD NOSED AND HARD LEFT!

...Dee Madigan pushes for an Islam flavoured Australia Day

Token Fox News and ABC rabid Leftie, Dee Madigan, is still promoting anything that will upset the majority and give her more air time to flick her apparently seldom-washed hair at the millions who detest her.



RESHUFFLE PRESENTS MORE THAN ONE OPENING FOR A BRIGHT YOUNG MAN

Either of two cavernous openings in Turnbull’s Ministry await Tony Abbott and either would be a perfect fit. Tony Abbott would bring more experience to the highly unionised flop that is the Health portfolio than any other Conservative in the country. In Defence he would have the rare testicular fortitude necessary to rein in the out of control Russell Hill PC Chiefs.


A TRUMP VICTORY MAY HAVE BEEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN WE FIRST THOUGHT

... the CIA's Islamisation of the White House was well underway

Californian journalist, Michael Hastings, was working on a story about CIA Director John Brennan’s conversion to Islam and another CIA operative who had converted to Islam, Andrew Warren. The journalist died in a suspicious fiery auto accident in California in June 2013, just three months after Obama had appointed Brennan as CIA Director.


MORE LIBS CAUGHT IN EXPENSE RORTS

...Fairfax has been busy on one side of the House only

Sussan Ley, Julie Bishop, Mathias Cormann and a dozen others remain sweatingly unexposed so far, but those who have been exposed are only the hated Conservatives. Fairfax is at it again with their phalanx of work experience Leftie reporters (not journalists) supported by the Guardian, news.com.au and people like Laurie Oakes.


PEAS IN A POLITICAL POD

... so how come one of them can stay?

There may be a torrent of anti-Trump drivel emanating from the Left media in the US and here but there’s more to their, and our, intelligence Agencies that all remain locked into former Left governments’ retarded ideology. The trouble for Trump, and whoever follows the hapless Turnbull here, will be those statutory appointments like the HRC’s Triggs, ASIO’s heads, the ABC’s and hundreds of others attached to Government departments.



THE MOST EXQUISITE ORATORS IN HISTORY CAN SOUND THE MOST BENIGN

... and that's the art of Obama

The tearful farewell address by Barack Obama was a tribute to his superb presentation and a eulogy to his speechwriter. He tugged equally at our heart strings with one hand and his donger with the other as he desperately tried to sugar-coat eight years of an American fiasco. I was almost a convert to his socialist dream before I recalled the nightmares of other leaders who had equally beguiled an electorate with the artistic delivery of a philanthropic thespian and the sincerity of a dying pope.



YOU WON'T BELIEVE A TURKEY ROASTED THIS WAY

For me it was the best Christmas ever, and for more than one reason. Pretty broke this year but I made sure of the large turkey I always cook for my terrific mob including 17 grown up grandchildren with another one due in April. But I have to tell you how I cook my turkey. It’s the best and it can be done with a chook or a duck.


LEAVE ME ALONE

... I'm only doing what comes naturally

Having a bonk buddy on the Gold Coast creates a problem for any red blooded Canberran politician. Nothing happens on the Gold Coast that interests Federal politicians except gigolos and hookers. But Sussan Ley can justify a flight to Brisbane, then a comcar to the glitter strip to visit some er, “clients” of the welfare budget who happen to live not far from the bonk buddy's bin-cleaning business. But an upgraded hotel room with champas in bed is more appropriate for important people.


DON'T INCLUDE ME IN THAT DODGY LEGACY, BARRY

Barack Obama will give his farewell speech tomorrow and it will be interesting if he can find something to say that will induce applause from anyone bar the stick insect, Turnbull and hard Left Democrats. The truth is that he has been an unmitigated disaster for America and the rest of the world. He leaves the Presidency in far worse shape than when he won it. His legacy is a flammable Islamic cauldron of discord.



EITHER SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT, CORY

Equivocation is the enemy of progress and mucking around waiting for the new Right to land on his doorstep only energises Shorten and blows away the same nervous Conservatives that may, one day soon, be asked to form government with a massive new Right movement.



BLACK DOG, TRUE RED

You know there’s something wrong when a new world order communist, avowed egalitarian socialist and UN-infatuated global warmist like Obama takes a kerosene spewing Boeing 747 to his golf games. What’s wrong is that Barack Obama is in the same mould as our Julia Gillard when it comes to leaving office gracefully with a pocket full of ill-gotten cash after planting dozens of land mines for the incoming government.


TWO WINNERS OF TRIVIA AND WORD


NOMINATIONS FOR TRIVIA and WORD PRIZE for 2016

... nominations should consider consistency and difficulty

I will try to get the prize (T shirt, bumper stickers and mug) out before Christmas but America, where we have a large following, may be a trifle difficult.
